    For a while now there have been these weird spiky potato based blobs on top of the bus shelters in East London. They're really cool and look like this

    This morning, it looked like someones taken it to the next level. On subsequent bus shelters there was a tray of 12 sweetcorn tins with what looked like sweetcorn plants growing out of each one and then a saucepan with a herb garden growing in it. xx(

    What's neat about it is that you can only really see them from the top of a double decker bus. (no cycling for me today as I'm all mr suity ;)).

    Omigawd! Somebody has crossed a potato with a porcupine!
     
  5. It's a leftover from the Circle Line fiasco - they ran out of cherries and used spuds...

    I was looking around for some more info on the bus shelter stuff and found this. A 'reclaimed bus shelter'

    Ahh things have moved on a bit haven't they.

    I remember when the most exciting thing you'd see on top of a bus shelter would be a single shoe or drinks can.
