stick it to them

Betty just moved to Freo from Germany! Imagine her looking forward to seeing stiltwalkers, vibrant cafes, ships with no lead but with live sheep, musicians, The Herald (aka The Chook), Little Creatures, the Bon Scott statue, the old synagogue, the Shazzanator, the Army Museum, Jan ter Horst’s home – the whole panoply!

Alas, she saw this car. “Made me feel welcome,” Betty said.

Although it’s not as Worst, included is a car I papped as I was going into Polly’s Pipe on Friday evening. Note the Good Vibes and M.I.L.F On Board stickers (and the vibrant city skyline) as well.

    Hmm sounds like they are very full in Busselton… full of xenophobic dickheads that is.

    Love the second pic. Very arty farty with the odd angle and all.. that was just to avoid the side mirror getting in the shot right? Is that what you’d call ‘car crash chic’?

    Possibly got yer worsts wrong way round DFOC. FOWF is unfortunately so ubiquitous now that it barely registers.


    • RubyRuby says:

      I guess that’s why the narrative context of recently arrived visitor to our fair shores was necessary, NF#1.

      You’re right about the ubiquitiousness. Looking around for a new (used) car purchase, Team RubyRuby went for some test drives on Saturday. Asked about the roo bar out front of one of the vehicles, newly arrived in Perth Pommy salesman winks at Mr RR and comments on its usefulness to “run the blacks down”. Until now I was simply bemused – WTF?! – but maybe the ubiquitous nature of FOWF stickers goes some way to explaining this? (Mr RR thinks it may also be his skinhead look that he’s rocking at the moment, but I’m not sold on this explanation. Or the car…)


      • Natalia Fan #1 says:

        I guess what I meant was that I’m actually more embarrassed on Perth’s behalf by the personalized number plates and Eat A Dick etc bumper stickers. FOWF is far easier to explain.

        How about telling us the name of the used car dealer?
        Not that Lee bloke still ranting about anything left of Genghis Khan in the sunday times?


        • RubyRuby says:

          Won’t name the dealer for several reasons, partly to do with xxxx-age but also because I think it was less to do with the dealer and more our misfortune to run into a young dickhead chancer of a sales rep.

          Am continuing to be bemused by the reaction of Perth local friends / colleagues – not one of them has been shocked by what was said, but simply that he’d said it without getting to know us better beforehand.

          Feeling like a bleeding hearted intellectual type, now.


      • Hutch says:

        I think we’ve finally got a use for the FOWF sticker – using it to jam shut the moroni gob of the salesman while stating “FOWF of our own racist views – we don’t need to import any more.”


    • rottobloggo says:

      Maaaaate: what about the proudly monolingual sticker as well?


  3. Shazzanator says:

    Clearly that car is from out of town (Town Of Freo that is) There’s no Magic Happens sticker which is a requirement for all vehicles in our great port city.
    Furthermore we don’t do Rios. Only Subarus or bathtubs.

    Of Dutch DVD floggers apparently.


  5. Lucky Star says:

    The chick in the second car is a keeper… if you xxxxxxx. Not the kind you want to take home to meet your mother. Although perhaps she’s into mothers…

    This seemed appropriate.

    This is an area where I think Troy Buswell needs to make his mark as Minister for Transport. I’d like to propose a Taxi labelling system. Simple and easy to follow and right tot the point.

    Give Us Your Money; or
    Fuck Off We’re Full


  7. BrownBook says:

    yeah but how seriously can you take a Kia Rio?


    • WA_side says:

      I want to know why no-one has taken to the right hand badge of the Kia.
      That CVVT is just hanging out for a small alteration …


  8. The Legend 101 says:

    Seriously Brown book is just a Kia but i dont like the stickers myself.
