The Gnome Curse is a curse placed on Gnomes by Gnome Goddess Gnomerica after the first Gnome ever created asked for another biscuit at a party when he had already had eight of them. The curse caused any Gnome that ever set foot on Earthern soil to become statue-like. They could see, hear, and think, but not move. They would be found and used as lawn decorations, humiliating and demeaning them. Gnome Chompski has searched for a cure to this curse, but after being exiled, all of his research was destroyed. However, after landing on Earth, Chompski was completeley unnaffected by the curse for a little while. He was able to crawl under a bed before succumbing to the curse. Even though he lost his ability to move, this was a remarkable occurance nonetheless.
