I was walking to work when I saw this.
‘What’s that?’ I thought. ‘A pot plant? In an orange pot? Oh… oh, is it carrot? I bet it’s a carrot!’
I ran in front of him and sure enough it was a carrot.
‘Excuse me! Can I take a photo of your carrot?’
He nodded calmly.
I got to work, super excited by this very strange, very Melbourne carrot incident.
‘Oh, the carrot man,’ Emma said dismissively. ‘I’ve seen it in the news.’
Sure enough, there have been sightings of the Carrot Man all over Melbourne for at least a year.
