You may or may not be aware, but Aussies love things to be BIG. There are hundreds of giant roadside attractions throughout the country; I’ve even written about some before. I never would’ve thought that one would disappear in the middle of the night, but it seems that’s exactly what happened in the early hours of this morning!
The internet is abuzz with the news – apparently someone made a visit in the middle of the night with a mobile crane, and stole the 10 tonne, 12-year-old giant mango. To what ends? I don’t know. But I’m actually quite surprised that anyone questioned it. It seems like the sort of activity that would fly under the radar, with most people assuming it had been removed for repairs. Let’s hope this isn’t the start of a spate of “big things” abductions!
