What is really crazy is the current owner has had it for eight years without knowing what it was and he lives pretty much next door to the original owners.

such a pity the original mural was taken off...there are some awesome pictures on the site of it. Esp the one in Australia where they are pulling a bloke out with his Holden FJ and the caravan.

The story is an amazing read.

The 5 episodes of Letterkenny are some of the funniest shit I have seen in a long time.
