Eyeing Baldivis Nuts

“…age-old evil, tireless and googly, cloaked from the masses by modern skepticism, yet still a potent force stalking the dark ways of the night.”
— Dennis Wheatley (The Gumnut with Googly Eyes Rides Out)

The gumnut with googly eyes has long been a stalwart of Perth art worsting. Now this obscenity moves into the realm of desperate real estate flogging. A medium where the gumnut googly eye is just as at home. From the House of WAtching.

    I’ve been thinking about moving to Baldivis, if only to escape this guy.

    I always wondered what he was the member for…


  2. Bento says:

    A terse letter from the Shire of Kalamunda is in the mail. This is surely some sort of trademark violation.


  3. David Cohen says:

    Would it have been so hard for WAtching to step out of his House and get a bit closer to the sign?

    I had to go to The Rivergums website to see the googly-eyed gumnuts up close.

    “Discover a healthier, more relaxed way of life.

    “Nestled in Baldivis, a beautiful scenic pocket just 40kms south of Perth, The Rivergums embraces its natural surroundings by allowing you to live with nature, not against it.

    “Already home to over 350 families, The Rivergums is a HIA GreenSmart accredited estate featuring sculptured lakes and wetlands, landscaped parklands and abundant natural bushland.”

    Now all they need to do is host a Rock Concert

    Banksia man lurks
    Kerbside, eyeing off your kids
    Natural bushland

    driving home along the new highway, I saw two shipping containers in a cow paddock draped with a picture of Don Randall, MP for Canning.

    it was somewhere near the silver cork things south of Mandurah.

    looking at his website, Randall seems to be trying to take credit for building the bypass, possibly single handed with a shovel.

    never have I seen any billboard more demanding of a Hitler moustache and fringe.

      reminds me of the scarecrow in ‘League of Gentlemen’

      Don Randall is possibly THE most hated person in the Liberal Party, and that’s from inside the Libs, let alone from outside the party.

    I glue shells to things.


  8. Snuff says:

    Amazing, NF#1. I don’t know which is worst, Dean’s poems, his tatts, or his … WTF !


  9. Bento says:

    Another Vanished Worst? Can the Shire of Kalamunda Councillors account for their whereabouts this afternoon?


    • WAtching says:

      I see where you’re going with this.

      Cohen! Get your army of spooks onto it.


      • Bento says:

        It seems they dispensed with the ‘terse letter’, and proceeded straight to ‘burn the fuckers, BURN THEM!’


        • WAtching says:

          It’s a council eat council world out there… Expect a counterstrike… right in the googly eyed…


          • Bento says:

            This has been brewing for some time.

            First Rockingham started stealing away Kalamunda’s British seniors monopoly. Then Baldivis came for Bickley’s crown as ‘most unlikely metro wine region’. Safety Bay has out-boganed High Wycombe for the last 2 censuses. But when they came for the googly-eyed gumnuts, it was fucking on like Donkey Kong.
