A few blocks from my apartment, there used to be a really cool stature of an elk. That's right, an elk. I couldn't figure out what possible symbolism an elk could have for the city of Somerville, but a friend told me, "Look across the street, moron!" where an Elks' Lodge was located. So, I'm kind of sad... I was hoping to hear the legend of a heroic elk herd whose rampage had cut off a British retreat and facilitated one of the Continental Army's earliest victories in the Revolutionary War, y'know, a really cool early American history story that never gets told on Boston's "Freedom Trail" tour or something. BUT NO... it's a symbol for a freakin' Elks' Lodge...
I mean c'mon, even the seagulls in Salt Lake City have a real purpose...
BTW, the elk statue has been removed. Now, I am sad.

Dean, remind me to teach you how to use Google some time.

Find the big nickel at this page, more importantly check out the entire Large Canadian Roadside Attractions website. (Sure to become one of your new favourite links!)

Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, home of the BIG NICKLE! No shit, it's a giant replica of an old school Canadian nickle.

DAMN STRAIGHT!!!! Sudbury home sweet home (I'm in Waterloo due to going to UW)

ANd yes the reason it is 'temporarily' at Science North is because it's getting refinished...or a face lift or something like that. I'm not quite sure when they plan on moving it back ontop of Big Nickle Mine.

Science North is a five minute walk from the High School I graduated (Lockerby Composite School) from and is a favorite stop for EVERY Elementray Grade as a field trip.

Great Link CRZ - I don't know which disturbs me more - the world's largest pierogie or the ukranian sausage

On campus we have a gorilla (our mascot, the only in the country) in a bent over posture. Mix alcohol with college guys + a camera you can figure out what most of the pictures are pertaining to. There's also this statue of an indian smoking a peace pipe I guess lovingly dubbed "The Toker".

In Sihanoukville, Cambodia, there is a big statue of two lions, the male with some sort of ball in his mouth and two *huge* balls of a different variety on the back end.

      This of course begs the question of "What is he so happy about?"

    I have no idea what I was trying to link to here. Was I linking to something in DC and if I was, why did I have to get it from a UK site?

Hey Loosie! You go to UW? No shit! I just graduated from there (I'm putting on Charity Millionaire over there... look for it soon). What faculty are you in?

//edit - Damn, a fellow Mathie to boot.
