SPFECH PATHOLOGY

9 Dec

We have all encountered this problem. You have hung your favourite Twilight Poster on the wall only to come back home on a hot day and it’s performing some Ouroboros maneuver on the floor, and whats-his-name the vampire dude’s face is now all crinkly. Heat and gravity have struck at your tender childhood heart, to spite your flowering girlish dreams.

Spare a thought for this poor Speech Pathologist. Obviously she didn’t account for extreme sun ray action in her shopfront when writing her business plan or else this delightfully unfortunate blu-tack droop to the letter E would not have happened. But something inside me is glad it did.

Random Insults 17 – Run from this mouldy health hazard house

23 Nov

I was feeling a bit over these random insult posts until I came across this very funny defacement of a Run Property sign.

My family had to deal with these schmoes for a while and we found them about as effective at agency as a celibate at a swinger’s convention. Their only contact with us, or our landlord, seemed to be when they were agitating for a rent increase. Perish the thought that they should do anything like organise repairs or some such triviality. Run pride themselves on this corporate chic image, so it’s always nice to see some Texta wielding bandit do a hatchet job on their branding (cf. this one). This one is smirk-raisingly witty and made my morning after I left Missy at childcare with a heavy heart.

Random Insults Day 11 – Green Morons

7 Nov

As fond as I am of progressive views in politics, I do see the point of this defacement of the red texta pixie people’s I love the Greens sign which I snapped on Rathdowne Street, Carlton in November 2010. Still, I don’t think that it warrants the profound tick of approval, seeing as it is more a case of small minds think unlike. Especially when you take the telltale correction of the word morans, I mean morons.

We turn homes into “assets”

24 Jan

You know you are living in sad times when you show something as guttingly insightful as this supplementary real estate slogan to someone and they simply shrug their agreement. That’s the case with property acquisition in this fair city of mine – ownership of a home, in the area of your choice, has become a privilege (don’t get me started on the leech like machinations of rental agents). That is why I was particularly chuffed when I came across this aptly and ably altered agent’s sign on my way home from the park with missy.

We turn homes into "assets"

Indeed we do.

Mein Hut, der hat zwei Ecken

I like this guy… I’ve seen him hanging out in a car park behind the Northland Homemaker Centre as well. But this one was snapped by the lovely Miss Lee B in the back streets of Fairfield… a gypsy with a mission – warning the unwary of speed humps ahead.
