Weekend Worstoff 183

Sneebah was baffled by the Belmont Fedex Mission statement. Baffled, but kind of inspired too.

Lani saw a mattress under investigation in reservoir Victoria. And some which escaped the dragnet.

Fiona of Mt Lawley sends a handbill from Jack Van Tongeren’s post prison career. Fiona says, “Please find attached a scan of a handbill distributed by the Australian National Workers Union. This was the name used by Jack van Tongeren and John van Blitterswick after their release from prison in 2002, after serving the sentences for the activities of the Australian Nationalist Movement in the 1980s. Note the appropriation of both the Eureka Flag, and the Rising Sun badge originally used by the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War.”



The Colour H, tells the sad tale that the very longstanding leather shop with the crazy horse is soon to be a vanished worst. I bought a belt there in 1987. I would have thought that cash injection should have kept it going a bit longer.

Worst well.

    CSI Mattress.

    Dumping something in a dump like Reservoir is sooo ironic. I’d start looking for a hipster somewhere around Brunswick.

    You’re welcome.

      Yeah I’m sure I walked past more mattresses that day without it even registering :) . What was funny was the “under investigation” part.

      Maybe TWOP could cash in on this concept – like get some branded tape? I would definitely carry a roll of that in my bag, along with my trusty camera :)


      • Russell Woolfe's Lovechild says:

        Yeah – maybe a big A4 fluorescent orange sticker saying “This Worst has been reported. TWOP” like they stick on shitbox cars around Perth.

        TLA would probably go to gaol for littering but we would all help post bail. Wouldn’t we?

    What was under the matress?


  3. Rolly says:

    All that the Reservoir residents need now is a cup of tea and a Bex.


  4. Word Salad says:

    It probably won’t be too hard to find DNA evidence in this investigation


  5. Snuff says:

    I wouldn’t have thought it possible to improve upon the registration of that lawn, and yet the mattresses are inspired.

    Many thanks Colour H for documenting the last days of The Leather Shop.

    This city had ooshta up the yin yang back in the 50’s.

    As much as I probably loved that pram, I could dig this.
