Pasted like a maggot

Youse pigs were very down on Real estate agents the other day. Let me restore your faith. Bento sends these baffling pics that seem to be trying to confuse the Maylands dweller into thinking that they may actually be living the Mount Lawley High life after all. Whoa. Dude. Wot fuck? What do these things even mean? Maybe my Maylands flat next door to the Dept of Corrections half way house unit where released criminals rekindle their love for heroin IS in reality a film about Mount Lawley prostitutes rekindling their love for heroin. And is therefore cool. I told those fuckers! Those…fuckers.
And, now, speaking of wtf, the other sign. The ad copy may have been crafted by a dog using a theramin as a text interface and rendered at the signwriters by a cat using a Moog as a bitmap reader. But, on the other hand, this is the agent who sold us our house, and he was pretty good, and I was fairly pasted myself as I went past the sign so, let’s call it even.

    The fact the sign was printed with the obvious error is worst enough, but to then to proceed and erect it puts this into one of the worst of all time categories.

      I see Mr Storey has pasted a perfect opportunity by to paste his mug on the sign.

      Maybe he’s the Rebel Real Estate Agent. But I doubt it.

      I’m certain there must be some sort of spelling test threshold one must accomplish prior to attaining one’s licence to sell property, except it likely works in reverse, whereby if one prospective RE makes less than the required cut-off mark in grammatical, syntax or spelling mistake quotients, they cannot be admitted to the (ahem) profession.

      I guess there goes my hopes to become the Rebel Real Estate Agent Without The Ugly Mug On Their Signs Or Ads.

    I have pasted the Maylands-Mount Lawley billboard myself and have been similarly flummoxed. Meant to take a photo but was always too busy changing lanes.

    Two months it’s been there, and I am no closer to working out what it means, or why the woman is so ecstatic. I can only think she’s happy because she lives in Mount Lawley rather than Maylands. Or maybe she’s happy they removed those palm trees from Beaufort Street

    I would have thought a more pertinent question would be: Vincent or Stirling. City of Stirling have installed some eye-wateringly twee Art Deco street furniture on Beaufort Street that I have also been meaning to photograph. One is next to the Federation crapper beside Bell Enders, which makes for a delightful garbage/shitter architectural clusterfuck

    Mt Lawley or Maylands?

    Isn’t that the name of a REIWA remedial training course?


  4. BrownBook says:

    Hmmm. Would it make slightly more sense without the question mark?

    Either way, it’s not an item of real estate promotional material unless it has a glaring spelling or grammatical error.


  5. fuck nose mc fuck fuck says:

    Given the sign is located very close to the boundary of Maylands and Mount Lawley, then saying “you’re home” to current or future residents of either suburb, makes sense.

    “Front Character?”

    Is this what we yanks call curb appeal?


  7. The Legend 101 says:

    I drive past this on the way to the City. Why is there so many signs there does anyone know?


  8. The Legend 101 says:

    That was a reply.

    We had breakfast on Whatley Cresecent this morning.

    I tell you: the art, the pending applications for small bar liquor licences, the gee-gaw shops, the flinty-eyed antique dealers, the deeply ironic display of concrete swan planter boxes – we could have been in Mt Lawley.

    Ah.. things like this truely make me miss good old Maylands. Brings a tear to my ex-pat eye. :~)

    Am I the only one who wants to find the theramin playing dog and moog cat sign making combo?
