Win Big with The Worst of Perth

The Town of Vincent is considering a community design competition to replace the “Nuclear free zone” welcome signs. (click for large version). The Worst of Perth thinks that you can do better, and is offering two bottles of TWOP favourite tipple Howling Wolves red for your creative effort to revive the flaccid Vincent image.

Favourite wine of the Worst of Perth

Favourite wine of the Worst of Perth

I will award one bottle for the best graphic, logo or welcome sign, and one for the best slogan for you non artistic types. Both could go to one entrant. The only proviso is that you have to be able to come into Curtin University to pick up your prize. (or a location acceptable for The lazy Aussie to go to).

The town of Vincent takes in North Perth, West Perth, East Perth, Highgate, Perth and Mt Hawthorne, but you may more easily identify it by the worsts we have covered, such as the slime covered statue facial of the gods, the flaming wardrobe, the grotty grotto, I’m a dickhead, and a worst coming from the Vincent Council itself, asking trees to give notice before dropping nuts. It even has a non worst, KGB headquarters. The Town of Vincent also has many loved obscenities, including the recently wildly popular Strippers World, (home of the cunt ‘kini), another highly popular obscene worst, the graffiti Adrian Barich, fat wog cunt, as well as the lizard licking delights of Rainblow. Use these as your inspiration, or find your own. Feel free to use the images to create your masterpiece. Images should be jpg maximum 500pixels wide. Slogan writers can post as a comment, but if you have an image, or are shy, email to perthworst@hotmail.com

Competition will run for a couple of weeks and will be judged by the lazy Aussie.

Skink kicks it off with a great entry, vying for both bottles.

    Worse indeed, Bill. “The City of Perth is also considering replacing its coat of arms sign on the pedestrian overpass at the eastern end of Adelaide Terrace with a modern neon Welcome to Perth (my imaginary italics) sign.” They are ? I should be surprised, yet somehow I’m not. Should they actually do so, Bill, they’d be playing the right bower in reply to the confused tourist’s lowly off-suit in the stupidity stakes, so I guess they probably will. Granted, it’s a fairly pedestrian overpass, but that’s no excuse.

    From the Vincent website history section…

    After settlement in 1829, the Europeans gave the name of “Third Swamp” to one of a chain of lakes stretching from Claisebrook to Herdsman Lake. Nearly seventy years later, in 1897, 15 hectares of Third Swamp would be gazetted as a public park and two years later renamed Hyde Park. Hyde Park is now of course one of the Town of Vincent’s most attractive and popular parks.

    Maybe it should have been, “Vincent – Formerly Third Swamp”
