Cyprus is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean, and apparently it's the home of a 16-foot "big potato" statue. The statue was commissioned in October to honor the nation's staple crop, and quickly went viral...mostly because it, well, doesn't look like a potato.
And now it's been cut down.
Apparently, unknown vandals chopped down the phallic spud at around 3:30 in the morning on New Years' Day, causing over $5,000 in damage.
Hopefully they're able to re-erect the potato soon for everyone's pleasure.
