    there was something on the news yesterday about lots of different coloured Lambananas being put round Liverpool, and they did seem to be this size.
    Very easy to steal!

    Did they wait for you to take the photo?

    Have to agree with you John. Some of my colleagues seem to like this quirky piece of public art but I've never have and the thought of hundreds of them appearing around the city fills me with horror. I'm sure I'm going to encounter one on a drunken night out and get into serious trouble.

    Oh dear! I can see the Echo headlines now.

    "Howie of Kensington is given a sound thrashing by multi-coloured Lamb Banana."

    For full story see page 47.

    Shouldn't believe all you read in the papers.

    Unless of course you're a major contributor to their advertising revenue.

    can you tell me more about the story? My mum mentioned it and also something about them looking for poetry submissions but I couldn't find anything about it on the net.

    no, they carried on walking so it was a quick snap, they couldn't stop as they said it was very heavy

    we also saw this one in the static gallery on roscoe lane so that's obviously where the other little guy came from

    Oh no! I just know I'm going to wake up having nightmares about these things. It's enough to make you want to give up the drink.

    I think they are ugly and I don't understand what they are about. Something to do with our trade as a port or genetic mutation - what?

    In the FAQs was written:

    "Who are the artists?
    Anyone. Go Superlambananas aims to showcase the artistic talent of Liverpool and artists are invited from all artistic communities and beyond - both established and aspiring - whether they are painters, designers, sculptors, architects, photographers, poets.... Artists simply submit an application and design template. Please see the artists pages for more information."

    Maybe that means too, you can take a waterproof pen and improve the design with your own individual ideas.

    Maybe it's also a little inspired by the Nanas.
