Cocos crimes against humanity.


Silly me. I thought the worst thing you could do with a Cocos Palm was to plant one of the suckers. No, you grow one, then lop it off at head height and leave the stump. If that is not obscenity enough, cut the top off and turn it into a giant crucifix for the front garden. Of course!

Never underestimate how low Perth can go, especially when Cocos is in da house. To see how to turn a reasonably normal house into a stomach churning freak, visit Deverell Way in Bentley. More on this area surrounding Bruning Park Bentley in later posts. It’s between Manning road, Walpole and Dumond Streets Bentley. One of Perth’s most interesting areas for houses, where bad can sometimes transcend itself. Not with this one though. Straight to the worst of the worst. Ughh.

    What was written on the covered sign?

    Student rooms for rent. Seriously.

    I wish i could have got a shot of this place a year or so ago. The cross was much larger. The crosspiece was a whole cocos, whereas now only the trunk is Cocos compliant. I don’t know whether it fell down, or Canning Council stepped in. It probably has the desired effect. Satan himself wouldn’t come near the place.

    clearly not students of woodwork. Wasn’t jesus a carpenter? I don’t think he would have been caught dead on that cross.

  8. The house has been sold, and the crucifix has been removed. I assume the owner now resides in hell. Now ajust another vanished worst.


  9. Mark says:

    Sweet Jesus, that house is next door to mine, and i knew that guy that lived in their. Until he committed suicide a couple months back.


  10. Bento says:

    Does Mark’s tale render his neighbour a Vanished Worst?

    Oh, come on, it’s not like I’ve not exploited our dearly departed for comic effect before.


  11. Has already been listed in vanished for quite a while, because the giant crucifix is now gone.
