Brown and Green

I thought I might juxtapose two street scenes that span our great land. Green link from Waverley in Sydney by Vincent B, and a Herdsman verge by Rob F. And if you have to ask what the brown stains are in Herdsman, then you are no Perthonian. (Or Perthwegian.)

    Grabinski followed the council verge collections. One way or another he had contrived to know where and when the pickings were to be had. “Noice couch”, he could often be heard to mutter, brushing broken polystyrene packing off flyblown foam; “get twenny bucks for that at the swap-fuckin’-meet”. Tiring of endless rate-payer complaints of the seasonal blowing of soiled nappies across their streets, of forlorn piles of disused appliances lowering property values, not to mention “the tone”, local councils would one day wise-up; provide free skip-bins, like those City of Bayswater bastards “Grabs” hated so much. But he wasn’t going down without a fight. Until then he could count on the assistance of his teenage daughter, nicknamed “Snatch” by leering rival refuse collectors. Concerned queries as to whether she should be in school were invariably answered with the assertion that rifling through other people’s refuse is the best education to be had (and just who indeed are we to argue, when so much education is now a mere rifling through not entirely dissimilar remnants?). Grabs looked up, jostled his daughter as a hiccuping ute puttered toward them, hairy arm projecting from the driver’s side window. “Hey Grabs”, the driver spluttered, punctuating the exhortation by flicking a half-smoked Winnie Blue at the bitumen….

    Umbrella dude needs a haircut. And you don’t see heels like that very often these days.

    He could perhaps get that growth on his perineum checked out, while he’s at it.

    Were it physically possible, Herdsman should be put on the verge.

    Talking of absolute rubbish – casting my eye over Teh Worst today, not only has their “buy our rag and win a shitty car” promotion morphed into “collect coupons for jetskis”, but their Arts section is running an extract from Oliver Twist?! Wouldn’t be so bad most of the time, but with publicity in full bore for the Fringe and the International Fest, surely those column inches could have gone to something like… um… contemporary culture?! (and I’m sure the whole “let’s print bits of Dickens in the paper” idea has already run somewhere before?)
