Watching some parts of the Eurovision Song Contest — yes, oddly enough, I happened to catch a glimpse even though the music is horrible — I was surprised to see how the contestants from Moldova resembled the gnome couple we met on the island a few days ago when out on a walk.
Just look at the gorgeous hats and compare them yourselves! I’m disappointed the gnomes didn’t win, but still, this shows that gnome culture has had an impact on popular culture.
So, do you think the gnomes we met are relatives or friends of the Moldavian band or have they simply fallen for the latest hat trend among gnomes? And is this trend to be interpreted as a challenge to waldorf teachers — as though the gnomes were taunting them: ‘We have this HUGE hats, but you can’t catch us anyway — you can see us, but we won’t let you touch us, nananana!’ And then they take their taunt (including a song that would never be allowed in a waldorf school) to a stage in Düsseldorf, to a really big event, aired on the most ahrimanic medium ever: television! They are cunning, the gnomes. They really are.
