The Trojan Moose

In an effort to boost tourism, the Swedes are planning to build a giant 47 m (154 ft) long and 45 m (148 ft) tall "Trojan Moose" on top of the Vithatten mountain.

Thorbjön Holmlund of the Big Moose ("Stoorn") Project wrote:

To enter the moose you'll either ride along the road that will be built all the way to the top, or use the wood-paths alongside the mountain. On the top you'll enter the pinetree in wich the elevator will lift you 35 m to the mouth. Inside the moose there will be 3 floors with a surface of ca 500 m², the content of these floors will be conference-rooms / exhibitions / consert-hall etc. The neck will contain the kitchen and the restaurant with a surface of 250 m². The outdoor café will be on top of the antlers and will have a surface of 100 m². Parts of the branches on the big pine tree will serve as a big umbrella, protecting the outdoor café from rain and snow.

Looks like they might be having sone problems getting this project off the ground **BUT** you can buy shares. The minimum stake is 10 shares, which by my(admittedly, probably wrong) calculations works out at about £80 or $160! Surely Neatorama's readers could make this happen!
