How about this for a surreal and petty story. One of the most talked about gorillas on the recently installed charity fundraiser Go Go Gorilla art trail in Norwich was the Freddie Mercury one outside the Forum. In a move of unbelievable pettiness by one charity against another, it has been requested that the Freddie gorilla be removed. Some reports differ slightly as to the reason, being either against some obscure copyright law regarding the jacket, or in the interests of taste, but Mercury Phoenix Trust seriously need to think about their priorities and perspective.
It seems word of this, via Twitter, has reached Brian May who is trying to intervene and knock some sense into Mercury Phoenix Trust.
