Weekend Worstoff 45

What a disapointment that the new West editor wasn’t announced yesterday.Would have led off the weekend nicely. Here instead is a Queensland worst from Stu. More on his site.


And Mr B was not impressed by this Wembley police parking. Maybe there was another Wembley art crime that transcended parking protocol Mr B?


Janine was impressed by an icecream van named Crusty Cones. I think the real worst is the state of the windscreen. Outrageous!


Vic Demised moved out of his comfort zone (Osborne Park) for a quick trip to the centre of the universe, which wasn’t the forbidden city in Beijing as claimed, but a roadhouse in Lake Clifton, between Mandurah and Bunbury. Thanks Vic.

    First one reminds me of the Madeline house in East Freo.

    About the Wembley parking bit

    erm think you will find police cars, ambulances, fire engines etc can legally park in these areas.

    still, amusing.

    And cuurently at the Morley Galleria, there are 20th Birthday Celebrations for Constable Care.

    http://www.police.wa.gov.au/Portals/11/PDFs/Media%20Release/2009/090227%200800%20Constable%20Care%20Turns%2020.pdfWill his 21st be a drunken affair resulting in a visit from his more human colleagues ? :-)


  4. Vic Demised says:

    Constable Care is really only 20 years old, Frank? I seem to remember writing satirical doggerel in his honour some time before that… eg:

    Constable Couldn’t Give a Fuck says:
    Keep your parents off your back,
    have yourself a hit of smack.

    -but I defer to your superior research skills.


    • Frank Calabrese says:

      According to The Sunday Crimes Dead Tree wrap-around on Constable Care’s 20th, revealed that Rove McManus got his start by being one of the puppeteers.

      And I note that CC may not make it to his 21st as the Office of Crime Prevention, which runs the unit may in the 3% Budget hitlist, along with the Police Pipe Band, and the PCYC’s.

      And Sattler WILL be outraged, as he is on the Constable Care Board.


  5. Snuff says:

    I seem to recall an urban myth about about an old duck in Perth who freaked out when she say a speed camera on a tripod on the side of the road, lost control of her car, and then ran the thing down, narrowly missing out on taking its operator with it. Then some wag printed up Tshirts with Constable Care on them intoning “If you see a Multinova, mount the kerb and run it over”. I thought it was just a bad dream, but then I saw DieselV8’s reply (5 of 11) here.

    Speaking of nightmares, that Queensland worst is indeed an unholy amalgamation of Escher and the Hiroshima Dome. We can only hope the King’s got his flag protocol down.

    It’s also somewhat reminiscent of Festivalgate, a curiously photogenic failed amusement park in Osaka. I’ll get some photos I’ve taken of it to you sometime, TLA. I’m not sure what they were thinking, building an amusement park next to Kamagasaki, “known as Japan’s largest slum”, but then again, it’s also not far from Tobita Shinchi, one of Japan’s most interesting “non-existent” red light districts, (so I, ahem, hear).



    • Snuff says:

      Oops. One “about” probably would have sufficed, and it should have been “saw a speed camera”.

      I’d like to propose “Snuff’s Law”, which states that “Obvious typos are rendered visible in forums without an edit function only after clicking on Submit Comment.

    Hey you Fakirs. Thought you might getta chuckle out of the IMDB “info” on Rai Fazio’s soon-to-be-released movie.


    Surely that will get pulled?

    Time to take a screen dump and bung a big worstofperth.com watermark on it, mes thinks.


  7. That is pretty funny.


  8. Ljuke says:

    I’ve been to the Centre many times. Good Billtong.


  9. Tony Sparkle says:

    Centre of the universe is badass, slightly less scummy than your average truckstop.


  10. Joe says:

    Centre of the universe is infact owned by biggest loser winner Bob.(No I don’t watch the show.)


  11. Vale centre of the universe. Killed by the Perth-Bunbury Highway. Their bain-maries, once overflowing with soggy chips and cheese sausages now stand empty and cold


  12. I took it for a change of scenery/nostalgia a few months back. It’s exactly the same (sans centre of the universe), but it is absolutely deserted. The ghost town version of a road.

    And it’s now 100km/h speed limited…fuck that.
