the scariness of gnomes

As my roomies and I travelled from Lakeland, FL to Huntsville, AL on Spring Break (a 10+ hour drive), we were driving via a tree-lined highway.  Mary Martha was asked to watch for deer on the sides of the road.  Wanting to be helpful, I volunteered to watch for other woodland creatures like nymphs and fairies.  It was suggested that we watch for gnomes as well.  The following conversation took place:

MM: Hey, Michelle, if you catch a gnome, can I pet it?
M: That seems scary to me.
