Zack: "Gnomes again!?" *pushes plate away in disgust* "Hang on there, Timmy. This ain't your grandpa's gnome."

Steve: It takes the same sort of thing happening in the DM's brain to end up with an auto-gnome encounter.
Zack: "You think you see a gnome, but you also hear a sound like a pulley. Yet, there are no pulleys in the room...or are there?!?!?!"
Steve: Wheels within wheels.
Zack: Attached to the pulleys.
