Indians are our friends

This one is from Melbourne, but I thought you might like to see how sophisticated Melbourne piss shops are combating Indian student bashing. In Perth we are more likely to have Fuck off we’re full Indian friends. Thanks Meccano.

    Tactical mistake putting the sticker at the till. Surely bogans in search of foreigners to biff are a key target demographic for a piss shop.

    They need two stickers. This one can go in the expensive plonk section. And then perhaps ‘FOWF of Indians’ over with the bourbon and domestic beers. Or maybe just ‘Tongue my Doogs’.

    Let me just say, people, that Indians may well be our friends, and that Russell Woolf is a complete worsting dick:

    Only Indians ? What happened to everyone else ? And all of them ? I know I’ve met some right little …

    Next thing we’ll be getting tolerant. Obviously it’s not cricket season.

    I wonder if the producers of this worst kind of worst actually thought about the implications of the sticker.

    Oh my. Perhaps Perth could do with this sort of Dutch-style vibrancy?

    “BarRectum, Arsch Bar, Asshole Bar, Bar Anus. While the translations sound different, the form is universally recognizable. The bar takes its shape from the human digestive system: starting with the tongue, continuing to the stomach, moving through the small and the large intestines and exiting through the anus. While BarRectum is anatomically correct, the last part of the large intestine has been inflated to a humongous size to hold as many drinking customers at the bar as possible. The anus itself is part of a large door that doubles as an emergency exit.”

    I like how the sticker pedantically adds the country names to the flags, and how the Aussie flag appears a third to half bigger than its Indian counterpart.

      Talking of pedantry, I think the flags are shown at the same height, with differing widths due to ratio: the Australian flag is 1:2, whereas the Indian flag is 2:3. If it were by population, the thing that The Fauves describe to “look[s] like New Zealand’s dirty snot rag” (from “Celebrate The Failure”, released very serendipitously in September 2000), would only be a minuscule 2% of the size of the Indian one. That’d be scale and proportion for ya.

    Having just returned from a trip to the subcontinent I can say that not one Indian person we met actually gave a fuck about students in Australia – dead or alive, students being roughly a rupee a dozen over there. However if they got wind of the way we treat our cows…

    I am confused. Is the sign 1. facing the customer, informing him that the cashier is from the sub-continent and gently suggesting appropriate behaviour, or 2. facing the cashier, reminding him/her to be extra-nice to people from the sub-c ?
