Tandoori Burgers and a Giant Monkey Balloon!

We saw these burgers today at the health store and thought we'd give them a whirl. I'm such a sucker for having to try something if I've never seen it before. The packaging is a bit retro, isn't it?
Here it is cooked. As you can see it looks absolutely nothing like the picture on the package. It just looks like a regular veggie burger. That's pretty much how it tasted too, I didn't get a strong tandoori taste at all, which was disappointing. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything special. I give it a 'meh'.

So, onto the giant monkey balloon... We were walking through town yesterday and saw this:
This is right in the middle of Dundee city centre. It's City Square, where all of our 'important' people (council and such like) buildings are. We were very confused. That's Gary in the picture there to give a little bit of perspective. Gary's over six feet tall, so as you can see, this thing is huge! We were also confused by the sign, 'Everybody' what? And why was it all cordoned off? We want answers, people!

Strangely enough, I was walking by City Square today and it was gone. If we didn't have these pictures as proof, I may well have thought I was going insane. I wasn't though... Not this time...

Hmmm... I bet the giant monkey's just an advertising ploy... what it could be for though, I'm not sure!

That's very perplexing!

Greetings from Dundee!
You are right , I wouldn't have believed you about the monkey if not for the photographic proof! I have not heard anyone talking about it and last time I was in the square there were only lots of people eating their lunch and lots of pigeons also trying to eat those lunches. have you found out what it is all about yet?
ScottishVegan gave me info on your site.

it was part of the six cities art festival - they were in Edinburgh, glasgow etc as well and altogether the words spelled out something or other... i was sorry not to see any of them in the flesh as it were
