It's Goodbye To A National Icon

OK so tonight I have a few options on what to write about ( or rant on about!)

The 'perfection' that some people crave in others, yet are so far from it themselves......

The absolutely wet your pants funny cat story a friend told me yesterday  (apologies to all cat lovers but if you know me you know I am not fond of them pussy's and this story will appear soon)....

You will need to keep this image in mind for that blog post


My day in court tomorrow (yes, I have paid most    the speeding fines).....

No, there is something that is so much more important to write about and I have no doubt that my blog post will appear on the front pages of all the national broadsheets tomorrow and that I will be beamed throughout the satellite via CNN with an exclusive report.

It is about THE BIG POO.......TATO.

Yes, that's right. You read it here first (or second or fifth or whatever).

The Robbo landmark that has caused incredible scenes with cars stopping, brides getting their pictures taken in front of, behind or on top of, that incredible piece of architectural history in The SOuthern Highlands...The Big Potato...is to be sold off!

I knoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!  What the freaking hell is this country coming to when such incredible historical, cultural and just plain damn amazing landmarks are to be sold off because council charges too much for the land rates and now the owner of the and has decided that he cannot look at that great big piece of ........ cultural significance no longer as his bank balance dwindles whilst propping up the local council.

It is just WRONG I tell you.

The Big Potato is on the way out it seems. Just like the Big Prawn, the Big Pavlova and the Big (stuffed if I know but feel free to insert your own incredible Australian cultural icon), the Big Potato is to be peeled, scrubbed, and laid to rest (perhaps in some aluminum foil and popped on the barbie then with some sour cream and chiiivvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssss - well, we do live in BOWWWWWRRRRRRAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL).

It will be a sad day not only for Robbo, The Southern Highlands, but indeed Australia when this national treasure is finally laid to rest (or mashed) once and for all.

And in the week we farewelled another Robbo icon from his illustrious sporting careers, Nathan Hindmarsh, it appears we will now be farewelling the Big Spud!!!

Rest in peace you big lump of shit. You gave it all you had.

ANd for those of you who may have had a visit to the Big Spud on your bucket list, here, take this with you as a lasting memory.....



Cheers
