“If you lose a garden gnome, are you gnomeless?”

Many homes have garden gnomes. Homes that do not have them are “gnomeless.”
   
“It you lose a garden gnome are you gnomeless? #themoreyouknow” was posted on Twitter by The Knower on October 8, 2012. “I’ve been stealing garden ornaments from my neighbour. Who shall remain gnomeless” was posted on Twitter by Stephen Holford on October 6, 2016.
   
“I see way too many gardens without tiny bearded figurines. We need to do something about the gnomeless population” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on April 28, 2021.
       
   
Wikipedia: Garden gnome
Garden gnomes (German: Gartenzwerge, lit. ‘garden dwarfs’ ) are lawn ornament figurines of small humanoid creatures known as gnomes. Traditionally, the figurines depict male dwarfs wearing red pointy hats. Typically, gnomes stand between one and two feet (30 and 60 cm). A recent trend has introduced miniature gnomes of only a few inches in height. Originating as a decoration for the wealthy in Europe, garden gnomes are now prevalent in gardens and lawns throughout the western world, among all social classes, and often regarded as kitsch.

I see way too many gardens without tiny bearded figurines.
We need to do something about the gnomeless population.
