Cunger

William D. sent this in as worst student activism at UWA, but is this activism? What is it? What’s a Cunger and why should I give it money? One of the worst signs I’ve seen since Solarution.  Perhaps worse.

    Mid-height, mid-career, mid-life: nothing to look forward to now, but sadly perhaps even less to look back upon. Denise had left. Still he struggled in the wake of the most recent ill tiding— that she is “seeing” a ranga. The word stung like a Jurien bluebottle. She’d seemed so idealistic back in the Cunger days; but then again, so had he. He remembered the midday meetings on the Lawn, where they spun their unformed and yet already weary opinions into the afternoon light, softly dying on the palms and limestone. Further plans were made at the Tav, or over the Shenton Park Hotel bar, before the dwindling sands of their zeal ran into the widening pool of the night. There was a time when they thought they could change the world. There was a time, after that, when they thought they could make a difference locally. Now, Rob sighed, there is only the mouthing of empty epithets. The dream had shrunk to take its place among the mundane detritus of responsibility: the car, the house, the boat.

        I’ll pay that, despite myself. Glad you picked up on the idea that ranga, rather than “seeing”, was the stinging word, Shaz.

    Inside Cover has a photo of Ken Bates (former husband of our Patti Chong) schmoozing with Bree Maddox, another favourite on these pages.

    such a confluence of Worst could be dangerous.

    if Tim Winton had joined them it might have caused a perfect storm of Worst so mediocre that it could rip the space-time continuum. or something.

    Without any initial prompting from me, one of my associates revealed to me yesterday that she was partly responsible for the C’unger banner, admitting that her and her colleagues “ran out of time”. In reply, I began to recite my literary C’unger cuntribution until she begged me to stop. In her defense, apparently there was so much Lets Can Hunger propaganda at UWA that day that the banner would have made sense to “anyone” who was there.

    Back in my student days we used to put up cryptic signs that didn’t mean anything because it was entertaining to listen to people figure out what the hell it meant.

    I think “Say NO to co-mingled outcomes!.” was my favorite because it sounded sort of plausible as a real plan and caused people to spend a lot of time figuring out what “co-mingled outcomes” where. It wasn’t anything.
