The Worst of Perth blog reshapes city singlehanded! (well, with the help of The Mayor, a crane and a huge truck).
I have to take it all back. Recently I opined that The Arse & Boozie sculpture would still be rotting next to Perth Railway Station in 20 years time. Not so. Readers of The West’s Inside Cover this morning would have seen a TWOP triumph described as “blogger’s heavyweight win”, as Lisa Scaffidi (sometimes referred to as She-Ra by this blog’s readers) made good on her promise to have the huge, arse encrusted lump of rock exiled to the gulag of Gomboc Gallery on the edge of the city. How many blogs could get half of one of the main city streets closed off and a 7.5 Tonne sculpture removed from the public view? Only one. The Worst of Perth. The second shot is the arrival at Gomboc Gallery. Those who want to see the full and hilarious history of this blog’s struggle against this sculpture can find it here, here and here .
