Ten Cent not Heaven Sent

“You shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house and if you got a glass jaw, you should watch yo mouth: cause I’ll break yo face.” 50 Cent

I was down in Jesper’s hood at Murdoch University the other day, where, while waiting for the caterers to arrive with lunch, I idly tried to kick this ten cent piece down the stairs. Only I couldn’t because it was glued to the ground. What plonker glues a ten cent piece down? To make the joke worthwile, the prize has to be big enough to lure the prankee into stooping for the coin. Would you bend down for ten cents? Don’t answer that. A superglued ten cents! I sometimes wonder about this crazy old world. Being a 10 cent ho doesn’t make you a dime, as they say.

    Looks like the steps of the Humanities Building.

    If this 10 cent coin is on the ground, it is not. If this 10 cent is in my pocket, it is. This 10 cent coin is not.

    Did the campus smell like an old turd, as the Svenkagemeister so memorably wrote earlier this year?

    Was there music?

    I suspect this is the work of either housemates, blokes, or whomever puts those zebra crossings inexplicably 1 km in the wrong direction, TLA. Times are tough down in the ol’ 1948 prison camp, but fortunately, yesterday was a fantastic day.

    I wouldn’t have bent down for ten cents, LA. But I might have dropped a dollar next to it, to make it worthwhile.


  6. The placement is absolutely top notch.

    When are you guaranteed to look down when walking? Hardly ever, except, maybe, when you’re just about to walk down a flight of stairs.

    You get maximum return* for little effort. Gravity does nearly all the work.

    And about 30mm from the edge. Tempting enough for even the most unco amongst us to give it a burl.

    I dips me lid to the prankster and the thought that has gone into this.

    *sight and sound of a 10c coin going *tinkle tinkle tinkle* down a small flight of stairs.

    How amazemnent!

    I just found a shiny 20c piece outside the POST (I had stepped out to suck on a Honghe).

    Life imitates art (except mine wasn’t glued to the dirt, which was beneath a leafy tree).

    I suspect Jepser had a hand in this. It’s just the sort of light hearted gag someone with a deep, deep sense of irony might partake in while awaiting their next tute. Much more fun than the uni tav.


  9. OK, now I know who Jesper is. I managed to follow some random links.

    Jesper is a champ. Jesper for GG!!!

    We used to Loctite 50c pieces to the footpath out the front of our house, then sit back with a can and watch.
    50c pieces are good, easy to see.
    When we moved out of that house we counted up the glue circles…we had spend over $20 on 50c pieces.
    Hours and hours of entertainment.

    Anybody know if the coin stuck in the concrete at teh bus shelter opposite UWA on Mounts Bay Rd / Stirling Hwy is still there? A friend and I spotted the opportunity when the new shelter got installed and the concrete still wet, so no glue required. Good times, good times…
