WAtching found a bandicoot that was torn between a desire to sell flowers, and save endangered species. Teh ‘coot also hid some signs when the lens was turned on him, and has a common difficulty in estimating the size of letters. What did the signs say WA? I think Underwood Reserve has something to do with UWA.

    Creepy. Looks like a character from the wicker man.

    So very weird.
    Underwood is a reserve near where they built that new stadium in Floreat, it belongs to UWA and they want to sell it to developers but it’s an important feeding grounds for the Carnaby Cockatoo and there’s not much feeding grounds left because people are idiots. And it’s an important link between Bold Park and Kings Park.
    I used to work at Kings Park and did some stuff to try and save the reserve, but I never dressed like a bandicoot on the side of the road. Clearly I wasn’t committed enough…

    You’d never see anything like that in Allen Park.

    But for the absence of dwarves, I would have thought this was a dream sequence.


  5. WAtching says:

    Wasn’t paying enough attention to the signs. Let’s go with ‘paw job $20.’

    As for the flowers, non-native as far as I could tell.

      Thanks for the update WAtching, 457 visa seems the most likely conclusion.
      Sex, day old flowers ripped off a freshly covered over Karrakatta plot, and a pitch to the local western suburbs NIMBY’s, also a cover for the blatant Town of Nedlands commercial license aversion.


      A BJ from Nurrie wearing a bandicoot suit would be rather thrilling, and something to twitter about.

    The astute and indeed environmentally aware (it’s the same thing, I’m quite sick of repeating myself in this regards) viewer of this photo, instead of eagerly grasping into their trousers for inspiration, would have seen the stains of our coastal lake system like accusing bloody hand prints on the footpath pumped dry so that the some redundant “park” might live. The flowers are wreaths for the bandicoots that no longer have any water to drink. The man has covered his face for fear of being identified by social security, a stark condemnation of the “boom”. But please, just floor the pedal in the SUV and move onto the next piece of sordid piece of suburban self-gratification appointment.

    A salubrious neck of the woods, I must say, that bushland across the road (Brockway Rd) UWA would give their eye teeth to develop: it is right next door to Subiaco wastewater treatment plant.

    For all their nimbyism, there are types who’d erect their style-bereft edifices anywhere in the Western suburbs, even if their next-door neighbours are a shit factory.


    • orbea says:

      And when those style bereft sordid pieces move into the odour buffer of Subi WWTP, guess who pays to ‘fix’ the odour scrubbers operated by WaterCorp?
