Random Insults Day 10 – Fuk off cunt

4 Nov

As far as random insults go, this is the mother load.

This was scrawled on the wall of a power junction thing near Croxton Station. A wall that is heavily tagged, so maybe it’s an ironic reference to the amount of tag spew scrawled around it.

I often wonder what motivates people to chalk up their bile with such conviction. This is also the reason why I enjoy snapping and posting these vindictive gems. Is it the thrill of breaking the established code of verbal conduct or is a particular person/institution/entity in the mind of the profanitor that warrants a good old fashioned text-lashing. I’ll never really know, but at least I’ll have fun writing about it.

Note the economical spelling of the word Fuck.

Fuk off Cunt


Dictation… not!

14 Dec

I generally steer away from snapping tags, mainly because they are the graffiti equivalent of dogs marking trees, and other landmarks, with their piss. However when I saw that someone had co-opted the otherwise hilarious dictation tag of the Summer Height’s High character Jonah Takalua, I thought it worthy of a mention – in the stupid department of course. Not only because it is an appropriation of someone else’s tag, and therefore very bad form, but because it was scrawled all over the equipment in a toddler’s play park.

For those unfamiliar with Summer Heights High, it is a mokumentary of an Australian High School following three main characters, all of which are played by the masterful Chris Lilley. The three characters are the egotistical drama teacher Mr G, the equally vain exchange student Ja’mie King and the clueless bad boy Jonah. The comedy is that cringe-worthy close to the bone character based style that seems to have come to the fore in Anglo comedy in the naughties – a style which people either love or hate.

Below is an excerpt where Jonah explains his tag and demonstrates his detention wagging strategy:

Here are the imitation tags found in the park down the road where my toddler likes to frolic.

Nice one numb-nuts

And the full effect... careful, genius at work.

More from this muppet in a future post.
