The Vermin Council

Dear Lazy Aussie. The attached photo shows what I consider to be a vintage WA Worst, from a remote part of the rabbit-proof fence between Sandstone and Wiluna.
Firstly, the faded quotation marks around “Murchison Regional Vermin Council” seem unnecessary, and hint that the MRVC is not official. Secondly, why the emphasis on “GATE”? As if there is something else nearby to close (I can assure you there is not). Underlining any of the other three words would make more sense.
Michael (previously of “Cash Twon” fame).
PS. I have already registered the name “Murchison Regional Vermin Council” for my new rural-themed hip-hop posse.
Thanks mate. I think it would be great to be a Sergeant t Arms for a vermin council.

    This post overlooks the basic question of why Murchison vermin would have a council anyway?

    Once Catania is gone and Alannah is Mayor, there will be no more vermin in the council.

    What’s that jammed between the sign and the gate?
    Some sort of wedge to stop it rattling in the wind so’s not to disturb the neighbours?
    Christ! Any neighbours out the would almost certainly be deeply disturbed anyway.

    LOL / *snigger* @ Cashed Up Shoguns tweet.

    Talking of stand up comedy, have had a comedian acquaintance lament that more than one audience member has shouted “LOL” instead of actually laughing at a joke. Is this something that happens often? (I COULD do research by attending a few gigs myself, but that would only encourage the wannabe funnymen…)

    Another great picture–looks like the end of a classic horror film where you realize that the annoying teenagers should never have off-roaded into the auspices of (chilling chord struck here) The Murchison Regional Vermin Council.

    Believe it or not kiddies, the Murchison Regional Vermin Council is an official body [see http://www.mtmagnet.wa.gov.au/default.asp?documentid=78%5D. Could be of use around Perth on Sunday mornings to sort out the lycracycle plague at your favourite cafe
