Weekend Worstoff 58 – The Winnering

100 Perth things comp has been won.I must say I’m a little disappointed that it’s Outrage Cohen again who will take the prize with his slogan, “Complain about lack of local voices in arts, but don’t go see local theatre or plays.” Perhaps an outrage free comp next time?

Internet is normal again now in Hong Kong. They can mark 20 years of Tiananmen Square here, but no-one really cares. All news items are blocked on that topic on the mainland but again, no-one cares, particularly not Uni students.

I am indeed literally looking down on Nathan Rd and Hong Kong harbour as I type this. Here is the prize DFOC, soon to be hauled back to Perth by Cathay Pacific. A selection of Chinese ciggies, ranging from 30c a pack to $1. Ciggies are subsidised by the government in China. (You only get 11, one is promised to another.) I suppose some entrants may get a grim satisfaction from your hacking cough from a 30c pack of smokes, but this will be offset by the coolness of casually dropping a pack of Communist cigarettes in front of the cadres at the next union meeting. I have linked to a bigger pic so you can view the packs better. I can definitely see you with a pride in your mouth rather than that fucking pen. Thanks to the many voters and entrants.

    I’m looking forward to having a fat Honghe in my mouth.

    I am fine with sitting out the next comp: they only allow you to be President of the US twice, after all.

    Where is skink?


  2. Oops. How embarrassing. Was stop smoking day in China yesterday. Needless to say no-one noticed that either.


    • Grrr says:

      That’s okay, it’s the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown, but I daresay no one in China will “notice” either.


    • ronggly says:

      Well, you missed Foundation Day here yesterday, which
      needless to say no-one noticed… except Sattler, who tried in vain to drum up indignation about the lack of local activity on this important day. Most callers just wanted to complain about Ben Cousin’s finger.



  3. Aileen Wuornos says:

    Man those Chinese cigarettes are fucking harsh. I’ve seen a few of those packets around in Northbridge, tried a lot of them and found myself coughing up ash for the first time in years.

    I’ll stick with my Winniiiiezz mate.
