Weekend Worstoff 123

Caris saw that a funster had made the most of the sparse Perth rains. Marshall saw this example of boganism in The Cook Islands. He thought it was a bit of a bold claim, but it was pointed out that a Hilux is the aspirational vehicle in Teh Cooks.Another example of why I won’t go to Broome. Pravda saw this toilet seat which seems to be made of compacted shit sprinkled with sea creatures. And Olga saw a possible art piece at Murdoch Unversity. Worst well.

    I take it that the licence plate is short for ‘U Wish the prat in this ute a slow and painful death.’

    Excellent collection, TLA. I particularly like the Wheel version of the Osaka duck, and the Murdoch art, although I might’ve gone with smells like an old turd Ce n’est pas une fontaine d’eau.

    Paraphrasing Mudrock gibberish:
    “1. Mudrock U. is where free thinkers come together to discover new ways of thinking.
    2. When two different things connect to create an encounter , a new idea is born.
    The premise of statement 2 is satisfied , but somehow it’s not sastisfying.”
    We’ll have to await the publication of the Mudrockian committee’s deliberations when they’re published on Wikileaks.

    • I have to say, those Murdoch ads are pretty bad. What happens when a free thinking designer and a marine biologist come together? Apparently something stupid, impossible and useless.

      I can barely contain my resentment for “my school”, in terms of the corporate branding and so on at least. I was almost going to photograph the “water fountain” signs myself, but in twisted piece of self-delusion attempted to rationalize their existence instead: “it was open day last week, people need to know where to get water….” The fact that were similar signs indicating rubbish bins should have woken me up. “New ways of thinking” = same old idea, but taken to new heights: $$$$$$$$$

    That is an irritating number plate, but I saw something far worse on Stirling Hwy recently. It was the ultimate vanity plate, and simply read “ME” . Translation- ” I am a stupid, self absorbed, lazy gym bunny”.

      how cruel

      did it occur to you that the owner may be suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

      did it? I thought not

        No, skink, that did not occur to me, and anyone who knows me would tell you that I am anything but cruel. If your theory is correct, then I am truly sorry for my comment.
        I was diagnosed with stage III melanoma last year, and it also never occured to me to display it on my number plate. In any case, how many people, apart from doctors, would recognise”ME” it as meaning Myalgic Encephalomyalitis anyway?

          Cruel? Unlike you, skink, I stopped well short of wishing that woman a slow, painful death.

            mate, I think you need to read the waiver at the top of the page where it says posters may use irony and hyperbole and opinions expressed here may not always be their true feelings

            but yes, I am cruel.
            bitter, too

              OK, point taken. Maybe I’m too thick and uneducated to get some of the sophisticated and convoluted humour I see on these pages (although that one should have been obvious) ,but I was having a fucking shit day yesterday, hence my oversensitivity. Sorry. Carry on, TWOPers.

                That should read “…..twitter and bisted sarcasm…” E.V.

                Really sorry to hear about the melanoma.
                I lost one of my heroines, Robin Miller, to that horrible affliction. I do hope that modern treatments are more successful for you.

    The Broome toilet seat reminds me… OOSHTA lives in Broome. We went to Broome a few months ago. Mrs B.T. being a sucker for touristy horse, elephant, and camel rides, insisted we do the sunset camel trip on the beach. Whilst waiting to board our chosen critter, I swear I heard one of the camel wranglers saying “ooshta” to a camel further down the line.

    The water fountain sign oh well, if you are familiar with Murdoch’s reputation in the deconstructive field you’ll understand why, outside the lecture and tutorial rooms, everything has to be labelled in big print to counter any semiotic dizziness (“semiosis”). The shock of this aggressively logocentric signposting has probably saved lives in summer heatwaves when the easterly blasts unrelentingly along Murdoch’s faux-concrete faux-nature corridors.

    Sadly, we actually have one of those toilet seats in our house. On our toilet. That exact model. And yes, there are others that are even worst. You can find the range at Bunnings.

    (My wife insisted on getting it… and apparently I’m the one who has no taste…)
