Song of The Blowhole

President Bush, you are from Texas, but Im sure you’ve seen one dolphin once in your lifetime. Wouldnt you like to keep seeing them in America’s oceans? So I hope you keep the dolphins safe. Please dont allow the Department of Commerce to go through with its plan that allows this harmful fishing method to be called dolphin-safe. People like my Mom and Dad who buy tuna dont want to eat tuna if it means dolphins will die.

We’ve discussed several times just how difficult it is to get any kind of dolphin painting, sculpture or advertisment to look good. It seems to be impossible. Turf has come through with another good example. Looks like it’s been chasing parked boats.

Turf says: Again in Spearwood, on Rockingham Road. Keeping with the ‘Flipper’ theme, here is a horrible painting of a dolphin. Firstly, it is a flying dolphin.Secondly, it has the fin of a shark and the forehead of a whale, but the eye of a human. Thirdly, the tail is all wrong. Fourthly, it sickens me. I do like the weird fish to the left though, perhaps they are trying to make up for their first attempt.

I prefer the dolphin. It does have a certain naive charm not shared by many other attempts. I’m going to give it a generous not worst tag. Thanks again Turf. We still haven’t mined out all Turf’s recent submissions. Best yet to come I think.

    The dolphin, deformed
    By Dubya’s poison tuna
    Flips out, waves goodbye.


  2. A graphic designer friend worked in Japan for a while. The company wanted to name their new offshoot Dolphin Net.


  3. Groucho says:

    This mural is obvioulsy highlighting the before and after consequence of dolphins living in the Swan River. I think it is a work in progress.


  4. forkboy says:

    At last high quality Indigenous art to match the wonders of the Kimberley………………take take that and “jam it” up your well layed arse Robert Hughes….


  5. Groucho says:

    For some reason seeing the second photo with the other fish….this mural is screaming “innocence”. i have never been so moved in my life…..can’t you see it ? (tear)


  6. The After , Groucho , a dolphin mangled after being hit by a jetski. More like a work in Success. We don’t have a suburb called Progress yet , tho I expect progress will see to that.


  7. Groucho says:

    ….Progress was going to be the new name for Lockridge but they decided against it


  8. Bill O'Slatter says:

    Yer an ideas man like LA, Forkboy. Robert Hughes deserves a thread all to hisself. Big Q: Did the fish do it ?


  9. forkboy says:

    I will ponder that momentarily your Billship.


  10. Snuff says:

    Seconded, Bill. As I mentioned in the Journalistic Ethics thread, how good was Bob Studley’s, “West Australian justice is to justice what West Australian culture is to culture” ?


  11. forkboy says:

    My answer to the question “your Billship” is “YES- a fish may drive under the influence of alcohol if capable of doing so”.


  12. forkboy says:

    One dimensional
    Flipper faster than lightning
    A relic of time


  13. Dolphin ponders life
    Bikinied jetskied Forkboy
    blubber exposed


  14. forkboy says:

    In fact I want a total Haiku porn thread……………..bust a rhyme big boy.
