Special Avocados

Back to a classic, honest, down to earth Perth Worst from first time contributor Perthguy. Well I’m not sure if honest is quite right, and yet..?  Seen at Shopping centre at Altone Park – Beechboro.

This shop seems to be confident, perhaps with reason, that the citizens of Beechboro won’t be able to make the computational leap between special and zero. It’s hard not to admire such a bold ploy. Expect savings of  minus $1 to follow. See how long before Beechborians catch on. I was going to also question the spelling ability, but this apparently incorrect usage is almost widespread enough to be acceptable . A saving of zero cents however, a little harder to take.

    The plural of avocado is avocados or if you are super correct avocadi. If I were a greengrocer I would use avocadi.

    In the continuing series of ” Why you don’t look for insights from comedy” we have the evidence of Mr. Chris Lilley at the AFI when commenting on the genesis of ” Summer Heights High”
    “…. declared that the characters he played in the hit series, including the colourful Mr G, were something he “just made up”. Well d’oh; 0.00 % discount.

    this has nothing to do with pears, it is a comment on mining company Avoca Minerals

    sometimes Avoca does

    sometimes Avoca doesn’t

    What’s so unusual about this.
    I’m a parsimonious old fart who’s always on the lookout for a few cents off, here and there. I see this kind of thing quite often.
    Perhaps I should start a running commentary on why I believe the primary education system needs a complete overhaul.


  5. Are you ever looking to save zero cents?


  6. And I suppose that saving zero cents is better than not saving zero cents.


  7. Bento says:

    Worse still – they could have increased the price by zero cents.


  8. flynn says:

    How are they ‘special’ avocados? Do they do magic tricks, or just slow learners?


  9. David Cohen says:

    Is a saving of 00 cents greater or less than a saving of 0 cents??


  10. Hey Teh ‘rage! Was wondering if you had been gagged by the authorities.


  11. David Cohen says:

    Yo TLA! Still here. To reassure you (and Rolly, who wondered why it was so quiet yesterday): some of us work.

    What is everyone spending their Kevolution bonus $$$ on? Avocados? Do tell.


  12. Ljuke says:

    Pissing it against the wall?


  13. Bento says:

    I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered – George Best.

    I’m spending mine on a Laptop :-)

    Our hand-me down Ferris Wheel has now shrunk – no longer will it be 60m high but only 50m. Also 6 pods have managed to go missing. I have heard of measurement errors before but 10m! Ooops
    With a bit of luck, while it is being reassembled it might just shrink again and we can put in side-show alley where it belongs.


  16. flynn says:

    Due to arrive tomorrow.


  17. Bento says:

    LA – you’d better get thee down to the docks. This has got TWOP EXCLUSIVE written all over it.


  18. I wish I could get there. Sadly won’t be able to.


  19. Snuff says:

    So that’s where Dan’s working now, TLA.

    And I know I’ve mentioned him before, but were I in a position to partake of Kev’s benevolence, DFOC, I’d be heading down to see Ralph and his rampant alsatian for sure.


  20. Bedford Crackpot Fraterniteh!! says:

    Them Avocadoes look like those really crappy ones that when you cut open are black and horrible! I would expect the 0 cents bit is actually a subliminal representation of their true worth!! Bloody NUTHIN, hopeless!! A fat ZERO!! NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TWO ZEROS!!!


  21. John Ryan says:

    You should have been here when he had the front of the shop loaded with furniture,now there were some interesting sights.
    Living over the road we see a rich tapestry of live in the Altone park shopping centre


  22. Erin says:

    That shopping centre has to be one of the worst in all of perth. The shelves are always half empty and it looks like there may be a cyclone coming and people have ransacked the place.

    The same was at IGA in East Fremantle.
