Drizzle on my stick

I can’t remember if we covered the fairly awful woman on a stick at Laurance winery in Margaret River. It is (of course) by the ubiquitous bronzing banalities the Smiths, but it’s not their worst work. At least it’s like on a stick. All their works should be on very tall sticks. But what I object to more is being told to appreciate Australia while staring at the arse of a woman on a stick. Like excessive flag waving, it is un-Australian. You can’t force me to appreciate freedom and opportunity in front of a golden arse! Aint going to happen. Please take a moment to piss off sans serif style. The Council tried to have this tableau removed in 2009, but unfortunately were unsuccessful. Perhaps it is appropriate that La Laurance’s sentiments are as empty and meritless as the sculpture. As seen by Skink.

    You haven’t made it in this town until you own a winery down south. It’s like a jet ski for capitalists.


  8. Snuff says:

    Yet another one in the nurries for Donald. As ever, the opening line would have been far more appropriate.


  9. LeofromFreo says:

    Was Dianne Laurance involved in anyway with this in 2006?


  10. BrownBook says:

    Terrible grammar.

    That must get a lot of birds landing on it.

    I take all my overseas visitors past this winery just to watch their WTF reaction. But I won’t take anyone to the cellar door because, worst of all, they want you to pay for a tasting.

    Hey Bartender, WA wines are good. Examples can be found. I’ve seen bottles from Vasse Felix, and Leeuwin Estate at one of those barn size wine merchants in Houston that tries to stock something from everywhere in the world. It also helps to know what you are looking for, “Wine of WA” isn’t much of a marketing slogan. You are more likely to see “Margaret River” on the label of a WA wine.


    • But dollar has made the price very high.

      In that case if you like white wine try a Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay barkeeps. If you can find their Art Series, even better.

      Thanks for the tips! To reciprocate, if anyone in Perth stumbles over a bottle of HRV wine, sent there in error and intended for a Prohibition-themed toxic cocktail party in Seattle, the reds are wonderful for staining outdoor decking while the whites can be dabbed on as aftershave. The sparking varieties can even be drunk, although the addition of a dare is useful.

    The mole on the pole as it is commonly referred to down there!


  15. the truth says:

    Unfortunately the real issue that was missed by the corrupt councillors of the day (read CCC transcripts for smith’s beach) is the dirty great big dam that was built without approval xxxxxxxxxx. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx during this debacle (again refer to CCC transcripts during smiths beach enquiry).xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Complete rort of the system, whilst everyday folk have to submit applications for tiny garden sheds, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Too bad people focus on the superficial shit ala ‘the skank on the plank’ and public servants are too scared to deal with multi-millionaires. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Whinge, whinge, whinge. Jeez, some of you are worse than whingeing poms. Oh, what was I thinking…some of you are.
