A couple of weeks ago I started seeing a few of these gnomes around the TenderNob, especially on Sutter and Post. But it was only yesterday that, after seeing one on a porta-potty that I noticed a description written above the crowned little guy: “Hella Royal”. No idea if this is going to start a trend of gnome-branded portable toilets, but I doubt there’s little that could be done to make those anymore foul (those who have been to Burning Man know very well what I mean).

By the way, do any of you all-wise and knowing Tender Readers know who is behind these monarchic gnomes?
