|Round 3: (21-27/7/97)
Three Men versus the Flying Pig
(The unofficial title)
The Three Men
The Flying Pig
|Where:||Corner of Swanston and Bourke Streets||The opposite corner of Swanston and Bourke Streets|
|Details:||As these guys stand looking incredulously at the world around them and waiting for a north-bound tram, you can usually see tourists snapping photos of them (I enjoy seeing how many peoples' holiday snaps you can get yourself into "inadvertently") - and locals making use of their rounded mouths to give them cigarettes. Heck why not, the chances of them getting lung cancer are pretty low considering they don't have lungs.||Half pig,
half albatross, the Flying Pig is handily located right
in front of a huge billboard space, probably the biggest
in the city (seen blank in this picture).
The Pig is actually accompanied by a few other animals up there in the vicinity, but people usually notice the pig rather than any of the others.
|The Result:||Well, the flying pig didn't do too badly, but eventually the three men outnumbered him and won the vote.|
