The Speculator was shocked to discover the disappearance of some of the iconic mushrooms on the summit of Mt Victoria, replaced with what one can only describe, and The Spec apologises for this – as gigantic butt-plugs.
Five of our famous fungi on the west side of the reservoir have been replaced; as part of what a Watercare sign indicates is an “upgrade” of our reservoir system. Phooey.
The Speculator – on behalf of the fungi-loving burghers of Devonport – demands immediate investigation by The Flagstaff, Chris Darby, Mike Cohen and Maggie “Mushroom” Barry into this slur on our cultural heritage.
Citizens of Devonport; there is a cloud over our mushrooms which must be vanquished, before there is a mushroom cloud over Watercare HQ.
