I love Skanks

The hunger for skanks is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
~Mother Teresa

Grovesy sent in this from John forrest National Park. I have a nagging feeling it was mentioned or sent in by someone else months ago, but I couldn’t find it in the 40 pages of emails. Sorry if Grovesy is getting your credit. Let me know and I’ll add you in. Now I love skanks as much as the next guy, but a simple burnout in her driveway would surely be enough? That someone should love skanks enough to carve it into solid timber concrete … Ah there is still romance in this cynical old world.

    Did Mother Teresa REALLY say that?? Perhaps it doesn’t translate so well from the Albanian…


  4. She said “love” but I assumed she meant skanks.

    Speaking of skanks; although the precise location is really stressing my memory, it was in the 1980’s, on a low wall, on the north west corner of either Outram or Colin Street, and Hay or Murray Street, West Perth, that I witnessed the uncensored version of this most memorable example of Perth graffiti.

    ” If Dunlop had used p*ssflaps, they’d never wear out ”

    Anyone else ?

    p.s. Interesting assumption, TLA. That’s opened up a whole new dimension for famous song titles.

  7. Concrete! Maybe they carved with their knob.

    My version is that some dude had the hots for a chick with the initials SK and then found some incriminating evidence that caused him to recant his love and, while the concrete was still fresh, add ANKS, thereby creating the legend that is now immortalized:

    Me too.

    Even better, just after the first dude initially scribed his love in the wall, did a burnout and fucked off, someone else came along just after him and with a gleam in their eye and sharp stick in their hand, added the ANKS, much to their own amusement. And mine. For no reason other than that they saw a prime opportunity for bring joy to the world!


  9. I wish I was skanks. This brought a tear to my eye and a stiffy to my todger.

    And as Kamahl once mumbled to a bewildered Daryl Summers on a lonely Saturday night, ‘Why are people so unkind’ and why does Ben O’Shea have such a fucking awful haircut?

    Love and hairy nipples

    Weird coincidence: I was just thinking yesterday “What is the deal with “Ben O’Shea’s haircut?” Maybe he deserves his own entry here.
