2 years chockers

For some reason I thought it was on the 29th, but no it’s today. Coming appropriately on the biggest ever month for The Worst of Perth is the two year anniversary. 880 000 views (or impressions as they say in the trade), 830 posts, averaging more than one per day, which is I think prodigious if not relentless comedy. 22 500 comments, which despite recent bumpko-centric and svenkage fuelled venom, have been overwhelmingly positive and frequently hilarious. There have been close to 2000 photos posted, almost all original shots, almost all specifically taken for the site, and the National/State library is still archiving it for posterity.

On the downside, you pigs haven’t been clicking fast enough to get to a million hits by now. Should get there around the end of the year. Thanks to everyone. Well worsted all.

    Let me be among the first to say congratulations TLA. This site has surely inserted much needed vibrancy into Perth.

    On a personal note, my days would not be as endlessly entertaining without TWOP. Thankyou.

    so you’re after quantity over quality? That’s more the nature of The Worst.


  3. Bento says:

    And you look about as happy as Jesper.

    Champion effort TLA. Thank you.

    Uncork the Passion Pop!

    I’m still searching for a discount source of incontinence pads and someone who will clean the coffee/coke/homebrew etc. out of my keyboard on a routine basis.

    Well done, that man !

    Bringing town and country together.


  7. Vic Demised says:

    Well done LA and all your contributors.

    OK, that’s out of the way… let’s hang shit again!

    Congratulations, and very many thanks, TLA. What do you give the man who already has the worst of everything for an anniversary ? A year’s subscription to Miniature Donkey Talk, Modern Drunkard, or Sheep magazine ? Perhaps a visit to the Creation Museum and Taxidermy Hall of Fame of North Carolina ? Maybe something tasteful, or one of whatever this lot are staring at ? A new designer house ?

    No, it has to be the TV commercial blind. Onya.

    Always a pleasure, mp and she’s just a sweet something reminiscent of TLA’s Parrot nights, and far more elegant than today’s lovers and lobbers.

    Congratulations, Lazy Aussie, may there be many returns.


  11. David Cohen says:

    Congrats, TLA.

    It can’t be long now before someone says that thing they said about Punch, and say about Private Eye, Prosh, Viz, The Onion et al…

    Listen mate, I think you should be eternally grateful that there is a person reading this in Iceland… surely you can´t get more exotic than that…. given that sometimes it takes some time for me to work out what the hell a picture of a mr Mike Hunts car wholesalers is there for …. first I read, then I translate then I add the accent – it takes a while. Obscure and also so lame. Time to lift the game I say.


  13. shazza says:

    Hi sigga,

    you’ll have a hard time convincing some of us here that Iceland is more exotic than Rottnest Island.


  14. Onanist says:

    Keep up the great work TLA – almost as much fun as Perthnow!


  15. Cookster says:

    I feel there is a need for TWOP festivities – a Festival of Worsts if you may.

    Key note speech by Brian Burke… piss by teh Howling Wolves… strippers & sausage sizzle…

    Maybe a Jesper mime act, with a alsation?
