Mattress

Why don’t The Ferralls use this hideous mascot more often instead of their even more hideous bonces? I tried to get a shot of one on Leach Hwy, but it “blew off” before I could get to it. Thanks to WAtching for this one in Leederville. Looks more like a slice of mouldy toast than a mattress.

    Interesting that while Ferrall and son have seemingly dropped their former ichthian imagery they have begun to erect these monstrous idols.

    I like that the sign on the store in Midland has had water seep into the two photos, rendering them both almost completely black.

    It looks like scary toast.

    I hadn’t noticed that the Ferralls had dropped the fish but they have, haven’t they. All hail the mighty Toast Jesus.

      It’s worse than the fact they’ve dropped the fish (and the cheesy disco outfits), but they’ve added the Southern Cross, the Australian Flag and the words “pride”.

      They’re clearly catering to the redneck market.

        The Fundies seem to hold less sway these days, knowing that Ranga-in-Chief is a godless heathen, that Fony Rabbit ain’t much likely to call The Lodge (or Kirribilli, more like, knowing what an Insular Peninsular North Shore prat he is) home on 22 August and that Stoopid Steve isn’t going to be so lucky second-time-’round with botched preferences, most likely heading back to obscurity or Jesusland Inc. once he’s served his term.

        The real…ah, natch, rool, voting bloc that is being targeted in Campaign ’10 is the cashed-up bogan: heaps of easy cash, but of little of brains or heart, and both the majors are blowing hard on their dogwhistles, eking out the tunes that appeal to their lowest common denominator fears, as perpetuated on Today Tonight and A Current Affair.

        Sure, it’s a different audience and tune, yet targeting them is just as debased as trying to pitch to the Christian Right religitards. Shove ’em both, whingeing wingnuts; even my empathy and sufferance for fools runs out by the time I reach both of these types.

    “happily christian attitude” What a great phrase, reminds me a bit of Tony Abbott although he is a more of a dogs breakfast than a real one.

              I particularly liked the vox pop in The West today where they asked a scientific cross section of ordinary people at a North Perth tennis club their voting intentions

              rather surprisingly they were all voting Liberal, or were undecided about whether they were going to vote Liberal, except one bloke who was voting Green and looked like he had wandered in by mistake.

              I believe they are repeating these vox pops every week up to the election, next week will no doubt be the golf club

    Have you seen their mattresses? They feature both Ferrall heads plus the fish. I could not sleep knowing that I was lying on the Ferralls. I certainly couldn’t do any other bed stuff on them.

    I don’t think there is anything quasi about Abbott’s religious convictions Shazza, it is either a vote winner or an albatross, depending on individual viewpoint.

    I bought the most uncomfortable bed from this company and went back 3 days later under the 30day swap over offer and I still have the bed after 5 months. So much for Christians, and consumer affairs were useless.
