New balls please

Martin sent this shot from City Beach Tennis Club. Someone left the gates open and voila! What a lovely post for the millionth viewer. I heard that a similar outrage was perpetrated on the playing field of a prominent girl school by a group from a prominent boys’ school recently. The nurries seem to be animated. Or perhaps it’s time lapse in the style of Duchamp’s  “Nurries descending a staircase.”

    is this the negative of grass stains?
    (and only 589 to go.)

    Magnificent, TLA, and fully deserving of the first ever tennis guitar photograph.


  3. rolly says:

    Another love match for the dick heads.


  4. And why aren’t police doing a stop and search looking for roundup in these suburbs.


  5. David Cohen says:

    459 to go! It’ll happen this morning! Who will be served the millionth Chong??


  6. Onanist says:

    I have always thought that tennis was for knobs!


  7. Jackson says:

    Outstanding. The kind of worst that makes me proud to be West Australian.


  8. flynn says:

    I adore this pic. Particularly the folk playing in the background.
    I like to imagine they had a good ol guffaw when they arrived for their doubles match. I am assuming of course, the people pictured are not the artists.

    617… it’s getting worse than Telethon.

    TLA, you can’t get The Barron Knights to play as the numbers come up?


  12. Cimbali says:

    Ohh.. was it done with weed killer? I thought it was some sort of sand mandala.


  13. cookster says:

    Are you sure this isn’t a highly artistic and rather protracted version of the ‘piss ring’ that is oft seen on front lawns and/or in the middle of suburban streets?

    If so, I admire the deft touch and bladder control of the person, or persons involved.

    It looks like they went back and gave the scrotum a second round, based on nothing but memory – some doubling up, but as TLA points out, it gives the cojones a sense of animation.

    Terrific work!


  14. Now we can get back to discussing this wonderful 4 nurried classic worst. I wonder if they did Allen Park as well?


  15. Cimbali says:

    This is very similar in style to the one on the end of my driveway. It was done with poured paint in a continuous unbroken line which can give you the sort of dropped shadow effect they seem to have been aiming for in this one.

    I spent some time trying to scrub it off with paint stripper but ended up with caustic blisters where I sat on the damp spot. So it will probably remain there in perpetuity.

    It does, however, afford me the pleasure of directing newcomers to the house by saying … turn left at the piddling honkies and right at the enormous cock.
