Weekend Worstoff 29



Some more photoshop work from Skink. Must be more pleasant than working on Paul Murray shots Skink. Shows The Lord Mayor about to battle Colin Barnett over city development wetblanketness. By the way. Whatever happened to Colin Barnett? He wins the election and sort of disappears. He can’t be asleep at the wheel already can he? Colin, you can’t run for office AND retire.

And on politicians, again from Skink. The remarkable picture of Stephen Smith that covers the window of his new office. Skink says…

I am reminded of the work of Guillaume Duchenne, a nineteenth century scientist who investigated how the muscles of the face worked.  He experimented on people with facial paralysis and attempted to make them smile by stimulating their facial muscles with electric shocks.  The results were truly gothic, and I suspect a similar method was used to get Stephen Smith to smile. Skink

Thanks Skink. I’m more reminded of the Messerschmidt Heads. Look ’em up, they’re good.

A Melbourne worst sent from The Parissite. The 67 bursting through is nice. A car to match Paris?

A car to match?

A car to match?

Forkboy was amused enough by the name Camel Tow to snap this shot. Formerly trading as Nun’s Nasty Towing?

Formerly Nun's Nasty Tow?

From Tim. A very odd ebay sale, claiming to be from Perth. Tim asks…

Is it a genuine product? I have no idea. What I DO know is that the seller is from Perth. I’ve been away for 9 years, have elephants become the pets of choice in Peppermint grove?

Yes Tim, with the financial meltdown, you ca expect to see a lot of these elephants come onto the market.

Unfortunately the bids are closed on this one., but he blurb says…

is your pet elephant stuggling to come to terms that it may rain. a freak shower or two and your pet elephant doesnt have a waterproof raincoat. WELL wait no more the fabulous makers at elephantysawarse.com have come up with a simply ingenious idea for elephants to have a raincoat…

Thanks everyone. Worst well.

    Re:Stephen Smith. Be fair. He has a rare congenital defect. All the muscles that should have been powering his lips have been diverted to holding up his hair.

    Re: Letterbox. I notice it’s at number 67. How hot must next door’s be?

    Re: Elephant. Is it’s ‘handler’ with the effeminate umbrella concealing, with hand in pocket, a penis of pachydermous proportions?

    Re: She-Ra. Nice job, Skink. Is this available as a poster? I’d like one to stick on my bedroom ceiling.


  2. Vic, did you see the request for Balcatta information? I know you Osborne Park man, but I’m sure you can contribute to ‘catta request.


  3. Snuff says:

    I reckon the FC at Big Al’s Poker Run might be garaged at number 67.

    Avagoodweegend, TLA.


  4. Snuff says:

    p.s. I can’t believe they did this to this. Oh, the boganity.


  5. vicdemised says:

    Sorry, LA, I can’t find the Balcatta info request. Can you post a link?


  6. Dukes says:

    Haha, I’ve had a car towed by stew (cameltow)

    While in the car he got a prank call, He gave the guy on the other end a blasting.

    I guess he kind of asks for it with that name


  7. skink says:

    Barney has indeed already given up being Premier

    yesterday he admitted that he would not achieve the tasks he set himself for “the first hundred days”, and he is not even halfway into that period yet

    Napoleon assembled a great army and marched it across the Low Countries in a hundred days. Colin can’t even change the cannabis laws.

    what’s the betting that he changes his mind on saving RPH before the hundred days are up?


  8. skink says:

    Cimbali should note She-Ra’s swan bustier with Perth seal accessory

    it’s all in the detail, you know


  9. David Cohen says:

    Those Messerschmidt heads are groovy. Maybe the pic of Stephen will resemble a delicious early Francis Bacon in about 10 years.


  10. Groucho says:

    At last a raincoat to fit those lovely Belmont Forum housewives….or is that really an elephant ?


  11. Frank Calabrese says:

    Hmm, Wonder Woman Megan, teams up with She-Ra to turn on the Xmas Lights.


    Check out the pic of Wonder Woman.


  12. Snuff says:

    Thanks for the link, Frank. I couldn’t help but notice this interestingly worded sentence in the article … “The event concludes with Santa leaving on the sleigh to David Jones where he will reside until Christmas, accompanied by Gale.”

    If I’d known that Santa gets to shack up in DJs with Megan for 6 weeks, I would’ve applied for the gig.


  13. Comedian speak. “What’s the deal with Megan Gale?” Am I missing something? Santa could do better.


  14. skink says:

    I think it’s because Megan makes blokes pop their corks:


  15. Rolly says:

    Wot ‘e sed at 14.
    She had every hetero guy in Italy in deep trouble with his lady. Young and old.
    I know, I was there and innocent though I was (Christ I never watched much TV in Italy – it’s shit), my Italian ladyfriend would shoot a wobbly every time the lovely MG got a mention.
    Vicarious jealousy.
    I don’t think that Meg fully appreciated the effect that she had on blokes.


  16. Frank Calabrese says:

    Also Megan is the spokesmodel for David Jones who are sponsoring the lights.


  17. #15 Really? She looks nothing special to me. Im sure the Italians have much better.


  18. Frank Calabrese says:

    Here is Megan in one of those Italian Vodafone TV ads, and she’s speaking wog as well :-)



  19. Frank Calabrese says:

    Here is Megan on the Italian TV show “La Vita In Diretta” (Life Direct)



  20. Thanks to Frank for alerting me to She-ra on 6PR talking about xmas decorations. All I took away from it was LED XMAS trees. Santa Madonna.


  21. Frank Calabrese says:

    Thanks to Frank for alerting me to She-ra on 6PR talking about xmas decorations. All I took away from it was LED XMAS trees. Santa Madonna.

    And Double-Entendre talk about Megan Gale shacking up with Santa in David Jones, and whether Santa will be dressing Megan.

    Daile Pepper – talk about crass cross promotion with TWAT.


  22. Well since I will be in the land of the long white clowns for a while, somebody better get out their cameras.


  23. skink says:

    what’s Daile Pepper’s crass twat got to do with it?


  24. Frank Calabrese says:

    what’s Daile Pepper’s crass twat got to do with it?

    She was on 6PR with Harvey DEegan talking about What’s On This Week, when they interviewed She Ra.


  25. skink says:

    I think that with the problems at Fairfax, they have to multitask

    Daile was probably bringing in the coffee, and they asked her to go on air. Afterwards she was asked to clean the toilets and get the dead pigeon out of the water tank. Tomorrow she will be editing the Herald.


  26. skink says:

    I see that Stephen Smith was voted Sexiest Male Politician 2008 by Crikey.

    I can only assume that voters have never been confronted with this image of Stephen whilst walking up Beaufort Street late at night.

    there is no accounting for taste

    for the record, Kate Ellis was Sexiest Female Politicain. All I can say is: va va voom.

    Troy Buswell polled poorly in the Golden Arsehat award for the most appalling person of the year. People seemed to think Robert Mugabe was worse.

    maybe next year Troy, when you’ve had a year in the Treasury


  27. Bento says:

    I just missed She-Ra on Fat Wog Cunt Radio. Did any interesting questions get asked? I was going to call and ask about the Perth Eye, but had no idea what number to dial.e

    Frank – any chance of a link?


  28. Bento says:

    Oh, and I forget which post sparked the discussion of our Nic (probably several), but I hear she has retired.

    Does one have to die to become a Vanished Worst, or is retirement sufficient?

    Oh, and for Snuff: #437. That’s numberwang!


  29. Snuff says:

    Fine then, Bento @ December 19, 2008 at 1:57 pm.


  30. I’m going to have a look at wheel ground zero right now.


  31. Bento says:

    Bento took the point @ December 19, 2008 at 2:27pm.


  32. Re numbers, I think they are bringing in threaded comments so number won’t work with that system. This means you will be able to respond to a particular comment and it will appear under that comment rather than at the end. i don’t know when this will happen though.


  33. Snuff says:

    Cool. Thanks for that update, TLA @ December 19, 2008 at 5:59 pm.


  34. Frank Calabrese says:

    Community Television is Coming Back to your Screens :-)


    I was at the Xmas party today and two of the Directors are John Hyde MLA and………

    Grant Woodhams :-) Neither were there, so I couldn’t ask him about his Swan Lager Singlet.

    The Fucking Outrage will be pleased :-)


  35. Bill O"Slatter says:

    Bong on you crazy Wood duck ! Perhaps you can explain why this one is going to fail as the previous one did Frank.


  36. Bundy singlet I think. Hyde and Woodhams? Santa Madonna!


  37. Frank Calabrese says:

    Bong on you crazy Wood duck ! Perhaps you can explain why this one is going to fail as the previous one did Frank.

    It won’t as there won’t be a fuckwit manager, nor a useless board and the volunteers and producers won’t be screwed over :-)
