This is a question Destruction, Demolition and Deconstruction

The Lone Groover says "I've just taken down a pergola with a metre-deep Russian vine over the top. It had nine birds' nests in it, and had rotted all of the cross timbers. It covered the entire lawn and needs a skip of its own." What's the biggest/worst thing you've ever taken down? Tell us your tales of demolition and wanton destruction.

My wee birdie of an aunt got this superhuman bust of strength and stamina to take out all of the contents from her soon to be ex-husband's shed and burn it on the lawn. Bit of family lore this burning - not even the shotgun shells exploding out of the flames seemed to put her off. We ran for cover; she just tore the double wooden doors of the shed with a crowbar and burnt them and then burnt the crowbar for good measure.

G & T's all round after that effort. The lawn didn't grow back for a very long time and the lumpen metally/plastic remains were broken down and some scattered through the garden like alien gnomes.

She even made us sing along to Dame Edna Everage's "The night we burnt mother's things". Good times.
