The March of the Wa-Wa’s

The much maligned Richarbl, scion of conservative thought, (I’ve never written scion before, so I thought ‘d throw it in,) was seemingly the only one to notice the vibrancy based Future Perthing on page 56 of yesterday’s West (21/10/09). Richarbl writes…

I refer to the article in todays West P56 which outlines a vision for Barrack St to become a “vibrant arty boulevard”.

Government Architect, Steve Woodland goes on to say, ” It is likely to  adorned with major artworks and sculptures, making it a grand walk  with a mix of culture and history. That would transform it from being a pretty sad street at the moment into something which is a really fascinating and interesting journey”

I have heard similar claims  from other visionaries such as the  Wodonga City Council and here is the result. Surprisingly it is still known as Stanley St but locally it is referred to…. and with more than a nod to the mostly female  contingent that approved it…. An Exhibition of Pubic Hair.

Thanks Richarbl. I thought the ideas for Barrack Street sounded great, but as we have seen before (ie Subiaco) the gap between good ideas and what gets done in Perth is large. Whatever the good intentions, we all know that Barrack Street will end up with a march of The Wa-Wa’s as has been foisted on Wodonga. wawas

    The little opening at the top makes me wonder which way is up. But….

    I bet that ‘approving female contingent’ weren’t my sorta gals. Looks like a man-eaters cunstruct/artifuct. Wouldn’t put my little precious anywhere near it, let alone my mouth.

    If a car hit this monstrosity, would it be a case of being cuntstruck?

    There is a new worst being installed on the corner of Lake and James Street. It looks like the yang to this one’s yin.

    Yep, it’s probably time to start calling things as they are in urban landscaping – none of this softly softly bullshit.
    Why not step up and change the official name of the street to “Pubic Hair Street”. It would be an absolute tourism bonanza!

    I can see it now, “Cunt Avenue”, “Arsehole Place”, Scrotum Terrace”, “Chong Bucket Boulevarde”. Bring it on!

    the sight of a ten-foot tall minge with metal teeth has caused my cremaster to clench so tightly that I am getting a cramp.

    was it mention of Julie Bishop that brought this image to mind, richarbl?


  5. oldfart says:

    The sister sculpture at right rear looks like it’s crackin’ up. Or is that down?

    And the one at far left rear? Sign for public toilet maybe?

    plans for the King’s Park monorail have been released:

    Bento will be pleased to see that Landcorp updated their C2030 conference blog:

    Up up and away, go the vibrancy levels. Well, more away than up…


  8. ChaingeDaile says:

    I like how locals have vibratised the artwork by placing appropriate pubey plants nearby, giving it that ‘unkempt’ feel. Very au naturale.


  9. oldfart says:

    Wodonga eh?

    More like Donger Woe.


  10. skink says:

    I believe there was a similar scheme to this one proposed during the landcorp C2030 summit.

    someone suggested a statue of a massive cunt in King’s Park:

    I want to do a gag about inserting vibrancy, but I’m terrified of the link Snuff will follow it with.


  12. Snuff says:

    He really hates women, doesn’t he ?

    Wors tags ever.

    Almost daily I learn a new word for the front bottom.

    Had a great classroom moment once when I asked my year tens exactly what was a punani?


  15. I assume the urban dictionary will have it.


  16. margeryx says:

    Consider my education complete – or at least up to the letter F.


  17. skink says:

    behind you!

    self-propelled punani, on a bike:


  18. Rolly says:

    Do stop all this fannying around, you ‘new bastards’.

    I do not have a weak stomach – I can throw as far as anyone – but that last link by skink would make a slaughterhouse operative spew.

    Thanks for the nausea breaker mp. Better than Quikeze.
