The invisible creatures who sneak into your empty, locked car and crank up the volume on the stereo so that it blares at 120 decibels when you return to the car and turn on the ignition. Some people mistakenly believe this phenomenon is due to the periodic cranking up of the stereo that takes place during a long drive, when in actuality it's due to the Volume Gnomes.
I think I'm going deaf. When I turned on my car, my Led ZeppelinCDwas playing at full blast. Volume Gnomes must've snuck in and cranked it up.
