Weekend Worstoff 42

My Ning in Toronto to spread the word on what a shithouse resources minister Colin Barnett was, submits this for worst ad. I’m not sure what’s wrong with it My. Is it because in Toronto it should be Canadia Apparel? Get oat of here.

week42apparel4Another from Ljuke. Is this actually bad? i’m not sure. Maybe yes.

week42van1From Chris O, this number plate. Those blue plates are always so bad. Did they not come in under Brian Burke?

    I think there is a suspicious link between Aus Post and Andre Rieu, you cannae enter the store without being accosted by huge tracts of Rieu CDs. I think they may be laundering his works.

    Well, at least it would have offended the feminists 25 years ago … hell, even I could have spat out a Nurrie-esque 1200 word essay on the semiotic implications of this piece of objectification as an undergrad – and I majored in plumbing!

    Goes to show how jaded and desensitised we’ve all become over the past few decades. Me – I blame political cynicism, media violence, net porn and the destruction of the English syntax due to mobile texting. Come to think of it, I don’t think those ring tones are helping either.

    So glad to hear somebody mention the measles plague of Andre Rieu. I am waiting for the overnight Andre Rieu Boom to bust and for there to be an Andre Rieu recession followed by a great Andre Rieu depression.

    Christ, Mike, I suffer from depression every time I accidentally hear one of his mash-ups on the radio.
    More depressing is the reality that lots of people actually like this smaltz.
    *And* actually buy this crap.
    No accounting for taste, nor the absolute lack of it.

    re private plates:

    my personal bete noir is the personal plate that includes the make or model of vehicle, such as ‘Beemer1’, “My 535i”or one I saw the other day “TRex”

    it always seems to be Subaru and BMW drivers. They just seems so very proud to have acquired their owns means of transportation.

    have they not noticed that the manufacturer often puts a little silver badge with the name of the vehicle just above the licence plate, for those very few people who may be curious?

    My personal favourite is the car getting around Mt Lawley with the plate ‘Cressida’. I had no idea anyone in the world would be proud to own a Toyota Cressida, but I guess that shows how much I know.

    I agree skink, numberplates with the make of the car on them just scream “I’ve got so much cash I don’t know what to do with it, so I’ll pay a motza for some personalised plates even though I can’t think of anything to put on them so I’ll just put the model of my car on them even though you can clearly see what model this car is because the manufacturer puts a label on it.” Saw a HSV in Bunbury plated:
    “HAITCHSV”.

    THIS BOGAN actually TOOK THE TROUBLE to spell out ‘haitch’. Note to self, get a cameraphone.

    I think you’re just trying to provoke that french guy to come out and accuse you of being a snob again with all the rieu.

    Mea culpa, DFOC. My last car (a Kingswood, no less) had personalised plates with the model on them. Say what you will, but the plate probably added about $1000 to the value of the car.

    Lisa,

    I believe that guy have to be creative with the spelling if someone has beaten him to getting the plate “HSV”

    similarly there is a BMW M5 in my neighbourhood with ‘EM5′ and there are numerous spellings of WRX such a of WREXX, REXX, RECS and “TWAT’
