Bra Burning

This was a lesson to me. I meant to stop and take a picture of this ugly lingerie factory in Maylands, but decided I could do it later. The next day it burned down. Would have been really cool to have posted it before it burned, so I could have claimed it was a TWOP reader taking action. Always take the time to stop and appreciate worst when you can, people. The top was heavily graffitied and it really was a ridiculous looking building. It is now a vacant block, so I did save some of our worst history. Those bras really go up when they get going don’t they?

    It reminds me of this dodgy looking porn shop on Port Road in Adelaide, called something like Black Knight Erotica. The subject of the shop is alluring, but the execution of the shop is nasty. This kinda reminds me of that – the whole lingerie things is fine, but the shop itself doesn’t exactly cry out to me to go in and buy the better half some skimpy little set. Then again, now that it’s all ash and charcoal, it doesn’t matter!

    And the fact that the sandwich board is outside the fenceline and used to affix the danger tape is just awesome.

    So does this get a second entry as a worst for procrastination? Or would be a good procrastination?

  7. Worst was that I also didn’t stop for a graffitied house on Lord Street that said “6PRacist” and it was gone the next day.

  9. I don’t know if there was foul play, or if a gstring spontaneously combusted Ryan. I should have checked the local rag.

    Shame it burned down – I went there a couple years back, got some nice sets of underwear really cheap that I still wear today. Good quality stuff, too.
