Big Mango heist a big con

Big Mango sign

The mystery behind the removal of Bowen’s Big Mango has been solved. It was a stunt by fast-food chain Nando’s.

In a statement on their Facebook page yesterday, the chain revealed:

Thank you Bowen. Your Big Mango is in safe hands (very, very big hands)

We confess, we borrowed your Big Mango. But we’ve got big plans for it and promise to return it safely…soon (ish)

Why? All will be revealed soon.
