Claremont Crack Cleaner

Apart from a  pint of beer that cost $10, there was another worst in Claremont as I waited for my Chinese calligraphy class. This metrocentric bath. Or at least I think it is a bath. So this is how the Claremont crack is cleansed? Amazing. I would love to see the Claremont take on bucket bongs.  I believe these are also all the rage in Corrigin. claremont

  1. For some reason this didn’t publish last night. It is an extraordinary glimpse into the world of the Claremontonian.

      Mr Shazza and I were in this very store but a few weeks ago. I boggled at the design also. Most uncomfortable I suspect.

      we too visited that shop when renovating

      there was a bath carved from a solid block of marble.

      I asked the price, and when told I reflexively yelled “get the fuck outta here”, Eddie Murphy-style.

      even a soap dish was more than a hundred bucks.

      this bath appears to have no taps, nor a plug hole.

      that’s the problem with wank design, they forget the basics.

      where would you put the soap? don’t answer that.

      I can picture my kids treating this object as an indoor wet and wild skateboard ramp, with most of the water ending up on the floor

        the tap is clearly visible to the right, as a separate item. i believe the holes across the bottom are for drainage.

        i like it, although i can imagine a claremontonian reclining in it whilst reading tim winton…

        They are pebbles skink. Mini shazza was continually berated for playing with them.

        As someone who has a bath, installed by the previous wanker owner, that would be at home in this shop, I assure readers they are fucking impossible to lie back and relax in.

    This is why you will never be a pencil-sucking gerbalist.

    You hint around the story, trying to be arty and evocative, instead of telling us the facts, like:

    Which store?

    How much?

    Who charged $10 for a beer?

    Where are the calligraphy classes and how much do they cost?

    God is in the details.

  4. Shop. Cant remember. On Stirling Hwy near Bay View. Didn’t have price tag viewable from window. I’d guess expensive. Why are you going to run a Post Story. “Decadent bath riles “real Aussies.”?

    The pub at the other end of Bay View chargen $10.

    Calligraphy, UWA extension via Confucius Institute. $199 including materials. Held at Lovely old building that used to be part of Edith Cowan. Also houses Taylor College.

          I thought you were joking about the calligraphy class – that really does make you seem like a metrocentric twat of the first order.

              lookout its a newb.. I was thinking along the same lines as margeryx.. ya cant go on a spiel about the pretension of Claremont and then hint at your cultural superiority to everyone else through an advertisement of your interest in Chinese calligraphy. If only I could be as refined as you. I’d probably write ‘you’ instead of ‘ya’ for starters and use proper grammar instead of ellipsis…

              Is this blog some info-age attempt at an Ern Malley type literary hoax? I can’t find anything about said Perth comedian ‘Andrew Mcdonald’ anywhere. Yes I took the Fakes, Frauds and Fictions unit at Curtin in case you were wondering.

              Finally, why the fuck are you trying to flog ‘worst in Perth’ t shirts through this site? The policy clearly says this site has no commercial interests.

                Hear hear pangy: you’ll note he talks his Clare connections up – but doesn’t admit he lives about 25 suburbs east of Mount Lawley!

                I reckon he is as refined as white sugar.

                And I agree re the T-shirts: he should be like the ABC and have to not sell anything and instead bleed us hardworking taxpayers white.

                I second DFOC’s assessment – Pangy is bang on the money. It is essential these matters are addressed immediately, if this blog and TLA are to retain any credibility.

                1. All hobbies, cultural activities, and interests must immediately be abandoned by TLA. It is hypocritical to lampoon pretension, and then go and read books yourself.

                2. Immediate action to be taken by TLA to obtain Certified Practicing Comedian endorsement. Additional actions to increase Google ranking advised, also.

                3. TLA to address obvious hypocrisy in commercial activities. This must inevitably involve resigning from any paid employment (however paltry the remuneration) and burning all merchandise.

                I look forward to the new look TWOP – it sounds like it will be scintillating stuff.

It all doesn’t make much grammatical sneese to me at the moment, but once a few of the LOLI have been arrested and the clear up rate improves ( and hence vibrancy) everything will be better. I think you may be able to find “Andrew McDonald” on Poogle.
