Anyone know what this is?

fahyfoam

Anyone have any idea where this foam is from Rioters?

James Fahy discovered this foam on Dickson playing fields and is understandably confused. He would like answers and has turned to us.

Let’s help James Fahy.

What’s Your opinion?

Not sure. What did it taste like?

Only our blob is white white white….Perhaps it wants to suck up any diversity or thought crimes. A bit like a Young Liberal, but slightly wetter.

Nah – the blobs have much more substance than a Young Liberal.

Or back in his mouth?

Seems like OP probably shouldn’t be walking on that oval!

Geez. Must be a slow day for you guys.

Just busy enough that I don’t have the time to comment on threads I find boring. Unlike some.

I’ll go warn him/call the poisons hotline.

no, no, reptoid spawn should be ingested, so the offsrpring can erupt from the intestines fully formed and devour the host, before leading its fellows in domination of this new planet. i, for one, welcome my new overlords…

It’s from a blob-dobber (true!)- it dobs blobs around when you spray crops and pastures or ovals and fields. Just the thing when you are using a boom spray and want to know where the edges are for minimal overlap. Prior to this magnificent invention (the stuff is available in fluro blue and pink too) farmers used to drag a chain on the end of the boom spray to mark the edge, and groundskeepers either guessed it or worked into the sun to show the edges of the previous pass..

All ACT Sportsgrounds are closed for annual maintenance for the next fortnight.

I assume the foam is either a byproduct of a weed spray or fertiliser process. Don’t eat it is my tip.

I’ve seen it on golf courses as well.

Grounds keepers use a foam to mark where they have sprayed when spraying for weeds, pests etc. Basically they have the spray arms projecting out from the 4WD, with spray nozzles spraying the grass. At the end of the arms, foam comes out to show where they have been…

A sign that the Bumblebee-person is getting ready to mate?
