Isn't the big clam and prawn gone?

Seen some of the ones in Qld when going up north by road (mango, etc).

It's missing the Big Bogan, the Big Bull (Rockhampton), the Big Explorer.

I thought it went this year some time.

Or was that the giant crab.

I've got a book on "The Big Things of Australia". There are a heap of them all over the place (about 50% more than what that poster has), and tells the story/reason behind them.

There's a giant Stanley wine cask in SA!
The prawn was under threat because Bunnings bought the property but they decided to keep it as it was a big tourist attraction and there’s not much else in Ballina. It’s part of the car park area now I believe.

I find the big Uluru hilarious as it’s about 1/40 the size of the actual thing lol.

There are plenty of "big c***" in Canberra.....and not just in parliament.

In England and Wales, you legally cannot get married outdoors.

You can in Scotland, though.

Maybe they should have a $120 million vote too....

Funny enough, the law has been in place for 200 years, and is currently being reviewed.

I suspect it was put in place to preserve the churches a bit. After all, in 1838, how many other large indoor spaces were there to accommodate a wedding? :grinning: It's not like function centres were a thing.

I would say due to the fairly ordinary weather over there, its never been seriously challenged.

Those who remember Club Veg from MMM about 20 years ago, might recall a parody song of My Happiness, called "My Half Penis" about a guy with shrinkage.
Speaking of Happiness...

“Almost” is the longest word in English with all the letters in alphabetical order.

My cats breath smells like cat food.

My doctor told me I wouldn't get so many nose bleeds if I kept my finger out of there.

The world's smallest computer is so tiny, it makes a rice grain look huge!
