And crabs be the streets of Basso

Dust be the streets of Old Beijing. Blood be the streets of Old Nanjing. And crabs for the streets of Basso.

One from David Fucking Outrage Cohen. Crab carcasses on the streets of Bassendean. This is the sort of worst I really like. A trivial photo only relevant to The Worst of Perth, but original, disturbing, and will I think be of interest to cultural anthropologists of the future. Perhaps we can build up a menu of street dropped food. So far crab and Black Sambuca. Somehow it could work.

crabsAnd while we’re on the subject of food, MIKE rightly asks “What’s the fucking deal with Angry Whopper!”. MIKE says…  I can’t find the words to describe the stupidy of this promotion, and the absurdity of last Monday night when i stopped into a Hungry Jacks to use the toilet and heard staff shouting through the mic : “Another Angry and fries”

Mike has set up a facebook group against said bellicose burger. And Mike, when you say “use the toilet”, you mean “buy angry whopper” right?

Perhaps older TWOP’ers can remember Rage Pies, which I seem to recall the Dugites did the ad for. Frank? You remember? Angry Whopper my whopper. Can turd burger be far away?

AND can I also say “what’s the deal with facebook?” I’ve moved to twitter, which restricts you to 140 characters, and no cunt’s sending me a PICTURE of beer. If I could be bothered closing my FB account I would. Yeah, send me a picture of a bunch of flowers there. No really, that would make my day.

Facebook. He be dead.

Thanks DFOC and Mike. See you both in the Facebook small picture of beer appreciation group.

    Good evening Rachel. These were on the pavement outside the Bassendean Shopping Centre, on Old Perth Road. About 25 metres east of the BWS door. Might still be there if you’re feeling a little peckish – I know that outlet stocks Black Sambucca…

    have you seen the angry whopper tv commercial?

  6. Yes I’ve seen the tv ad. looks like a soggy whopper, not angry. A really pitiful attempt. Beeping in the bus lane? Fake bikies looking on? Absoulutely crappy ads. Also seems to merge with a whole lot of other “THAT’S NOT…” ads.

  7. And Caide, who “finds themselves in Maddington”? The only way you can find yourself there is if you are pulling into the carpark of The Madington Swingers Club.

    Off topic, but I’m currently watching on Free to Air Satellite TV on RAI International a Beatles Tribute Concert featuring both Italian and international artists such as Donovan & Sinead O’Connor.

    As a second generation italian, it irks me to see Italians in Italy sing and speak english with an annoying American Accent, whereas we born here, or have come as small children like my oldest sister have Aussie Accents.

    His song was All You Need Is Love, complete with italian subtitles of the Chorus.

    And strangely, the stage is totally devoid of flowers, a feature of Italian performance stages, but they do have the large video wall. The Concert is outside near a river in some italian town.

    Truly tacky Television – I wouldn’t be surprised if our friend Eros Ramazotti makes an appearance.

    And Sinead is on now doing her second song, Hey Jude – she opened the show with UK singer Skin, and they sang a duet of Let It Be.

    I can tell you, Frank, that it upsets a hell of a lot of Italians in Italy too.
    Just like a lot of Aussies get pissed off with the Australian singers and musos who whine on in faux American accents and I get thoroughly cheesed off with dropped waistlines on baggy pants and softball caps on with the peak at the back.
    All pretentious copycat stuff, Bro’.

    Get into Beppe Grillo’s blog to see the exposé of the demise of Italian politics and culture.

    I worry, – lots.

    Speaking of the Angry Whopper and bus lanes. If you check out the sign on the door as the bikie arrives for the group therapy session, someone has spelt “management” incorrectly for the Anger Management Session.

    Now that makes me ANGRY…….

    While the Angry Whopper does make me angry, I’d like to point out that the “Dark Whopper” wheeled out for the Batman movie was the winner: weakest attempt at a movie tie-in/cross-promotion. ever.

    What does the Angry Whopper smell like? I only ask as, to my amazement, there is a body spray from Burger King in the US:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-daum27-2008dec27,0,6860503.column

    Towards the end of the article: “The French perfumer Etat Libre d’Orange introduced a product this year called Sécrétions Magnifiques that’s supposed to smell like a mix of blood, sweat and semen,” Herz said. “And the fashion designer Tom Ford has a cologne called Black Orchid that he’s said he intended to smell like a man’s crotch.”

    The DARK whopper was bad enough. My nine-year-old would boldly state “I’m off for a dark whopper” when he paid an extended visit to the small room, but in time it passed. Both the whopper and his comment.

    Now these fuckers have come along with the ANGRY whopper, he’s at it again. I had to explain that it’s only angry the morning after a curry.

    We both scarpered down the hallway singing ‘Ring of Fire’ while Mrs Cookster threw things at us…
