The Vagrant & The Bag Lady

It seems like every second Perth driver is feverishly attempting to make themselves look like a dickhead with a witty number plate, (including Outrage Cohen).  So much so that the genre is just about sucked dry here at The Worst of Perth. These two however have added that extra layer of irony that takes them to the next level. You’ll need to beat this to get another licence plate published. Did he actually mean vagrant? I’m thinking he might just have got the wrong word. Was he trying for drifter? Bum may also have been taken already. Bento has spent months trying to capture this plate. Apparently Mrs Bento doesn’t even bother to roll her eyes anymore when he takes out his camera. Bag Lady is all mine. At least she’s not a fart in a bag lady.

    ….from present participle of vagrer to wander about.

    “one (as a prostitute or drunkard) whose conduct constitutes statutory vagrancy”.

    did you notice if the driver appear to be a hooker or a drunk TLA?

    WOW vagrant is RIGHT near my apartment block! east perth is notorious for shitty number plates… in our building alone we have LDZPLIN and Funomenal…….

    Oh Bag Lady!
    You drive away with my heart.

    It’s still dickheadism, but it’s better than those crappy blue custom plates that were all over the city for a while. How many of them used 007 as the numerical section? Just about every one.


  5. shazza says:

    I don’t suppose he meant vibrant?


  6. Bento says:

    Every time I saw VAGRANT, I was reminded of my favourite Worst tweet, which was something about tradies losing their jobs in the GFC resulting in a surplus of green utes.


  7. B.T. says:

    Not worst, just ordinary. The cars need painted on flames, or flags to approach worst. Maybe if the plates included the “state of excitement” slogan.


  8. WAtching says:

    TLA: I dont even bother submitting car plates any more. But i still take photos…

    What happens when a “Vagrant” sleeps with a “Bag Lady”?


  9. Onanist says:

    I quite like those. (If I was a bogan my ute’s plate would read DGENER8)

    Almost as good as this one, which I saw late last year leaving the apartments across the road from my office.

    vagrant bag lady
    no spring in her step today
    as people mock her.

    In other news, Cockster is going to be on ABC Mornings with Geoff discussing Twitter at 1015…

    Hecklers welcome…


  12. Outrage’s car has L3ninroks

    You can drive my car
    Through the gold-paved streets of Perth
    Autumn of our boom.

    BAG LADY! Great!


  15. Bagism is a term which was created by John Lennon and Yoko Ono as part of their extensive peace campaign in the late 1960s. The intent of bagism was to satirize prejudice and stereotyping. Bagism involved literally wearing a bag over one’s entire body. According to John and Yoko, by living in a bag, a person could not be judged by others on the basis of skin color, gender, hair length, attire, age, or any other such attributes. It was presented as a form of total communication.


  16. CB One says:

    Maybe it’s vag rant? The driver could be upset about not being allowed to have Uterus, so he’s gone on a vag rant.


  17. Slanderer says:

    News flash – Cockster is currently on 6WF talkback justifying why he spends all day on Twitter as a media personality or something.


  18. shazza says:

    If I may change the topic for a small moment. I note today Sattler is sticking it to feminists. Apparently they have hairy arm pits and are members of a brigade. After checking under my arms it turns out I have been deluding myself all along.

    Now if you’ll excuse me I have some shirts to iron.

    This place has gone ballistic with comments over the past few days, just like the mining boom Twop has exploded with fresh initiative and renewed vigour.
