The Sow must die, Mr Speaker

I don’t run too many non original photos, (particularly when WAching, Outrage and others have sent me thousands) but these from Greg R seen on the website for Bunbury’s Lord Forrest Hotel are intriguing enough. Perhaps the cudchewers of Bunbury have different ideas about romance and relaxation than us city smartarses, but what role are the Bananas in Pyjamas expected to play in this romantic evening? And is parliamentary question time, albeit on a big screen, the bumpkin version of a post coital ciggie? The effect is sinister to the extent that it seems certain he has pages of “All work and no play Mr Speaker, makes Jack a dull boy.” on that laptop. Odd, very odd.

    A banana in pyjamas is clearly a metaphor. They are encouraging safe sex. Nothing sinister about that.

    Theyve got the shows around the wrong way. Nothing gets a couple in the mood like a rowdy episode of question time, and the guy in the 2nd shot is clearly gay, so it’s B1 and B2 all the way for him. Clearly a mix up.

    Exactly whay I prefer to travel overseas…

    Nothing sinister here – only some rather touching playing out of traditional gender roles: “Honey, you relax while I clean up”. “Sure, it’ll give me a chance to check our share prices”, etc.

    I was heartened by this worst.

    It is good to see the bloke reading a newspaper.

    Print media is not dying!

    Are you thinking, what I’m thinking B1?

    It looks as though they have updated the furniture at ‘The Pine Warehouse’ but found the tv during a recent verge collection.

    Raine Square for this…?
    Bunbury would surely be better

    The newspaper, the laptop AND the TV?! All at once?

    Pick a side, we’re at war.

    Wouldn’t you know it. Another fucking Perth A-lister:

    “Scolaro has been a regular on the Perth social scene, and is understood to be friends with Lydia Tsvetnenko, wife of Russian IT millionaire Zhenya Tsvetnenko.

    “She attended his recent surprise birthday bash, the Party Like the Gods event, and has been seen attending Perth Fashion Festival events with the pair. ”

    Re Scolaro story…

    “[Magistrate] Mr Heaney said he regarded the offence as the most serious example of its type, so he started his considerations at the maximum two-year jail term… He
    He recognised that Scolaro would find prison “unpleasant and difficult”, but said he had come to the conclusion that the sentence should not be suspended.”

    Get outta here! Prison unpleasant and difficult for the poor petal?

    Those photo’s must be from the most expensive room in the hotel, I stayed at the lord forrest about 18 months ago and the room we had was an absolute shit hole.

    No flat screen TV or B1 and B2.

    The place is falling apart and they certainly aren’t spending any money on it.


    • They may have thrown some money at it once Bumpkin Highway was finished. I’m glad of this coment HJ. I have lost track of the rest of the commenting today. You’ve got to keep on top if it.

    Aww, this could be a scene out of any Perth hotel: has just the right measure of ooshta to definitively be of Perth, that anyone outside can instantly recognise: the dated decor attempting to look trendy (trendy, in my definition, is merely being at the head of the line with mainstream tastelessness), the RTA furniture finished in a marvellous beech veneer, the token Mac laptop (hey, I use Mac, so don’t hold it against me!) to lend a misplaced patina of cool. A very Perth tableau. Can’t wait for the tapestry of this!

    But you remind me that this at the Lord Bumpkin 80s experience…oops Lord Forrest Hotel in Bunno. I will in turn remind you all that Perth is indeed The Bunbury Of The North, and that it is the font of all good taste (as is Gill Sans Ultra Bold).


    • shazza says:

      I fear you are right Bag O. A very Perth tableau indeed, god bless her cotton socks.


      • bagoturnips says:

        Hmm, wondering where to hang The Perth Tableau tapestry…suggestions? Next to the Witches Cauldron Restaurant hoarding (is it still there?) at the West (Worst?) Perth Subway? In that empty space next to the Town Hall, near the public conveniences? Chopstix Restaurant or Inglewood Pizza on the Beaufort Arrondissement?
