Weekend Worstoff 53

This person may be able to answer questions about Lobbers or lobsters. Simon went for a worst binge down south with some nice numberplates. Also some great BMW parking. Errant parking photos, along with apostrophe policing are genres that TWOP now owns but which used to be Inside Cover staples.



Continuing with a deep South theme Skink found his morning cup of metrosexual spoiled by the Harvey Milk labels. Skink says…

I am not sure of it was a deliberate ploy to make the labels look ‘homely’, but I wonder if they would not have looked a little better if:

1.  they had asked the bloke to put on a clean singlet, or maybe even put a shirt on.

2.  they had tried to get the kid to smile

3.  they had avoided photographing a cow’s arse


Also Rob od Highgate sends in a worst from Cannington, which strangely I don’t think we’ve worsted from before. Rob says…

It is hard to convey the sheer human misery of this nearly deserted  block of shops in East Cannington without a panorama taking in the  empty shops, grafiti & carpark but the one surviving shop tells a  pretty vivid story.

Thanks Rob. Bigger picture next time if possible. This template will take pics up to 500pixels wide.


Worst well this ANZAC weekend. Thanks everyone for worst support.

    Is that a scarf or a crushed pair of sunglasses on the other bloke’s head?

    Harvey fresh man seems to be wearing some sort of nipple tassle arrangement made fancy with grommets. Why?

      You need to adjust your VDU, a-nonny-mouse-perth-one.

      The strap’s holding up a filthy unhygienic apron of some kind.

      Perth and surrounds are getting progressively grubbier.

      I had cause to walk around the city and Northbridge on Thursday and was really struck by the general untidiness of the whole area.

      Individual businesses, many of whom have recently been through the biggest boom in decades, showing the signs of years of neglect.
      Others where the lack of daily “housekeeping” is very much in evidence.

      The “Cultural Precinct” and State Library looking very much as if the exteriors and surrounds had never been cleaned since construction.
      The old Perth Tech looks like it’s been totally abandoned and re-occupied by feral squatters.

      It’s much the same in the suburban shopping centres and precincts.


  3. Touch of the Ricky Pontings in the kiddie

    If I have 1 wish this weekend it’s that the BMW driver comes on to TWOP to justify this parking. I am sure it will be some sort of whinge about a car on their right side being parked over the line thereby forcing them to park over into the Disabled Bay, and how much they hate it when that happens…..

    now if this were america, that family would be missing.

    wouldn’t that be a lovely thing.


  6. David Cohen says:

    Will Harvey Milk be running for mayor of Dunsborough?


  7. Grrr says:


    Don’t these people know incest is a crime?

    What does the Cannington ship well. I thought it may have been the old printers with the handwritten sign, but on closer inspection it is not.

    Hi all

    Unfortunately I’ve had to move my hugh jass from Perth to Bunbury for a few months and live with my folks (i was an unfortunate lass with a good job who lost it due to staff cuts and money saving in these worst times), so expect some masses of your good old favorite Bunbury worsts in the weeks to come…Better go recharge teh camera battery and make sure I’ve got my 4gb SD card with me at all times. Won’t take long to fill up!


  9. Nomad says:

    that half handicapped parked BMW is shameful


  10. Frank Calabrese says:

    And poor Danny Green whinging about the security arrangements at his fight :-)


    And I love this quote from The West article.

    “My seven year old daughter had her potato chips searched, for God’s sake.


    Danny, with all the meatheads you attract, no wonder they needed a high security presence.

    I asked myself ‘what does that shop sell?’ and the only conclusion i could come to was – ‘sadness and broken dreams’.


We can handle the worst
