Round 3: (21-27/7/97)
Three Men versus the Flying Pig
What:
(The unofficial title)

[3 men who brought their own lunch]

The Three Men

[Flying pig]

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.
