Last in Katanning series by NF#1. I’m kind of liking that slide though NF#1. If it wasn’t in Katanning obviously.

    I remember as a kid that it was the nastiest, bestest playground In The World

    what the fuck is that pedal-powered contraption in the foreground?
    it looks like some sort of agri-steampunk crop-circle wife-stretcher
    worthy of a bumpkin Torquemada

    I see they’ve put all the ethnics on the cattle train to repatriation
    ‘we shall decide who comes to Katanning, and the manner in which they use our recreational equipment.’
    one word out of you and you go in the giraffe-cage

    That playground is a kids dream and an OH&S officers nightmare all in one. In these days of plastic playgrounds with rounded off edges and soft matting, I’m giving this one a not worst

    HeathRobinsnesque improvisation gets the ‘tick of approval’ from me.
    The only worst is that they don’t have the cash to maintain it adequately.
    Fuck Woles and Coolies for their venal corporate avarice.

    Art Garfunkel appears to have escaped from the other mural.


  6. Snuff says:

    A great collection nicely topped off with the mural and medieval torture devices so popular in the days before lawyers. Not worst, whatever they are.


  7. Now let’s not get all WIllagee on Katanning. The place is undergoin a process of renewal, and most of the baddies are in gaol or currently being represented by Chatti Pong. That playground is testament to what a bloke with a welding machine and a bit of pipe can do as Sarah points out. And only the mean spirited or the Rhindhearted would bemoan the Childrenz of the Whirl tableaux.


    • Coveted not worst tag added. Who would have thought it possible in Katanning? But the whole point of how tainted the town is that the baddies only went to gaol recently. Not 1977 when it could have done some good.

    Who’s that driving the train of racial tolerance in the mural. Looks like David from the SBS movie show


  9. I remember on a hot summers day sliding down those babies, your arse would be completely scolded, but you didnt care…

    whatever is in that bong has turned the clouds orange

      What’s late for a Monday night in Perth? I’m thinking around 6.30pm? This is the sort of diversity Perth hospitality has been lacking. Bravo Madcuntz.

    What is with that slide thing?


  14. you'll get wet says:

    Do schoolies still get summer hols job on the bins with CBH?

    My siding was on the line east of Katanning, had a small hut, mattresses with rusty broken springs, caved-in Kookaburra stove [still good to enough heat up a can of baken beans] and was infested with very, very large spiders, like much of the wheat brought to us. Start work 30 min earlier every morn to open the roof and position the shute, finish 30 min later, no payment. No AWU around either but you still paid them. If an organiser came around the locals ran away.

    The siding only took A grade wheat but cockies rejected in town would try it on us. One used to try to impress/intimidate us wearing his grandad’s WW1 slouch hat. Grandad was at Gallipoli therefore my grain’s A grade. There were just three of us – two schoolies and a local. The local drilled a hole at the bottom of the bin and sold the grain for chook feed. He said he was allowed to – special rules for locals etc.

    Anyone else remember Malathion? You poured it into the country elevator. It made us cough and causes cancer. Now we know other bad things were happening.


We can handle the worst
