What do we think about frangipanis?

By Delish - 16 January 2009 68

The new plague on Canberra Streets – Frangipani Girls…

What is it with the girls that have Frangipani’s on their cars?

Why are they so psycho on the road teamed up with the bad driving?

Has anyone else came across these new ‘Canberra’ drivers???

Please share your pain with me to ease mine!

[ED – And are they that new? When did you become aware of the phenomenon?]

What’s Your opinion?

Whilst on the ‘nationalism’ thing does anyone know why there are 5 stars on the boxing Kangaroo flag and 6 on the Australian?

Kramer said :

The ever increasing use of the southern cross on car stickers & tatoos screams “I’m using this iconic Australian symbol to disguise my racist attitudes”. I quite like the southern cross, and I want the red necks to give it back.

And they can hand back the Eureka flag too, while we’re at it!

I just realised that Kiva’s slogan is ‘loans that change lives’. When I said “going to http://www.kiva.org and changing lives” above I didn’t even think about it. The power of marketing.

No no no no no no no.

not new news!

FAIL!

My fiancee likes frangipani flowers and has since she was a wee girl. Back when she got her frangipani carseat covers they were fairly rare. Now its the new fad. These things happen.

I liked Cypress Hill long before they became mainstream, then they broke and everyone likes them. It’s annoying but I’m not going to stop listening to them.

The time people spend on RiotACT whingeing about frangipani girls would be better spent either exorcising their collectivist demons or going to http://www.kiva.org and changing lives.

Either option is acceptable.

Thank you pain has eased slighty, yes I have noticed there existance but I started taking the back roads as they never venture to far from the bright lights of the city. Why I am complaining today is my need to use Northbourne Ave and was annoyed by an attemped dived bombed by one of them in front of my car whilst sms and looking the other way – not the way or lane that she was merging into! Grrrr!

As for the Southern Cross tat’s they seem to meet at the big splash, I took my little one for a slide and the amount of Southern Cross tat was ridiculous…

Extremely well put Kramer. I couldn’t agree more with that statement.

I now expect something nasty or strange to happen whenever I see the southern cross on a car.

I only support the use of battery-cage produced Frangipani stickers when both chick are hot 🙂

Does Southern Cross tattoo scream bogan to anyone else ?

Just for kicks I might get a tattoo of the big dipper 🙂

Images of Canberra – And she can’t park either

So not exactly a new phenomona. I believe I first noticed the existance of Frangipani popularity about two years ago. F*%ked if I know where the idea came from.

Frangipani stickers in the shape of the southern cross is the sign of the devil.

Frangipanis on cars, Australia says No!

I used to think that they were nice flowers, now I hate them.

Girls? It often looks more like a mutton dressed up as lamb phenomenon.

Stung 11:47 am 16 Jan 09

This is very old news, and in fact not really news. I believe most people have removed them as they are shit.

folkie 11:47 am 16 Jan 09

Frangipanis on cars should be banned.
They were nice to begin with now they are so common.
Be original people.

Its the same with Southern Cross stickers.
Every second car seems to have one.
