Canberra is the best place to be!

By radonezh 18 November 2008 42

When one goes to Youtube and types “canberra” in the search field, this is the first clip that comes up: 

Marianne, be careful, you have some competition! 🙂 

[ED – I’m astonished that the Live In Canberra campaign hasn’t taken up the chorus “Canberra – A great place to squiz”]

Not only that, but I’m going to graffiti it on toilet doors and stuff too!

*hehe*

Oh dear.. Granny if I see kids walking along, merrily singing ‘Canberra, it’s a great place to squiz’ – I’ll know they belong to you!

Granny 8:35 pm 18 Nov 08

I’m going to learn all the words and teach it to my kids!

*evil laughter*

Overheard 7:49 pm 18 Nov 08

Yeah well that’s 10 more seconds than I could stand.

Surely this HAS to be a pi$$-take.

I had to stop the video at 20 seconds – it was just too painful.

Is it worth watching further?

hax 5:52 pm 18 Nov 08

That video is just.. depressing

Granny 3:44 pm 18 Nov 08

Yes. We can help the war effort by drinking the Riesling … for the corks of course!

Granny said :

I do like purple hair! You guys are inspirational. Can we have cork hats as well? And swags? That would be cool!

: )

Yes, definitely. These would be necessary in the heat of the summer, but the corks would have to be Canberra Centery Reiseling corks.

I should record my pisstake anthem that I wrote last year..

Canberra the Brave

Maybe I will and then send it in to JB and he can put some sort of vid clips to it?

I, for one, would be honoured to hear it.

BTW: any uniform must, and I mean MUST, include pink Ugh boots.

That’s GOLD! They’d look great with the wombat-fur jumpsuits.

For summer, they can be pink Crocs.

Granny 3:32 pm 18 Nov 08

Ooh, yes, do it, Thumper!

poptop 3:27 pm 18 Nov 08

Add the requisite leis of Canberra Bluebell, order the Blue and Gold mankinis and a squadron or three of incontinent Gang-gangs and I think this is ein schlauer Plan, der nicht ausfallen kann!

*chortle*

Just wait till your brain starts to bleed, BerraBoy68! Pink uggies are fantastic for winter time, but what about summer? Thongs?

BerraBoy68 3:15 pm 18 Nov 08

FFS! My ear are bleeding. Not only are those the worst lyrics ever, the guy singing reminds me of Peter Sellers. I think he must have put that diabolical effort together to try and sell it to the ACT Government. Whatever his motivation, I wish he hadn’t bothered.

BTW: any uniform must, and I mean MUST, include pink Ugh boots.

Scratch the wombat-fur coats – I just had a better idea – wombat fur full-body jumpsuits!!

radonezh 2:56 pm 18 Nov 08

poptop: Llamas are excellent in a skirmish and they perfectly symbolise the character of Kanberra – they are hardy, though ungainly; intelligent, but intractible; unusual, but not enthralling. Being pink is useful since it will highlight the purple wigs worn by the foot soldiers.

Re: subjugation of the barbarian hordes – this must be done carefully. Many of the neighbouring hordes are allies of Kanberra. I myself live outside the City Walls and harbour unitarianistic tendencies for tribes of the region. They also control supply of all of the chicken schnitzels in the region – and we must remember that an army marches on its stomachs.

Re: uniforms. Well, it looks like it’s definitely going to be mankinis, wigs and gum boots, except in winter, when the mankinis can be covered with full-length wombat-fur coats. This is practical, since there are many rivers and lakes in the region, and mankinis allow the army to swim, while the gum boots are excellent for mud, dust and snow. Wombats are plentiful, so the fur coats will not be a problem.

Imagine how the Kanberra Armies would look, resplendant in their tan-coloured mankinis and purple wigs! The enemy would flee in terror!

Radonezh – The Territory is probably big enough for your and my dreams to co-exist.

Particularly if we take the view that we can only ever be free through fiercely subjugating the barbarian horde just outside our borders.

And even more particularly if we include uniforms.

And crack teams of pink attack llamas.

New Yeah said :

Good question. For the youth of our fair city, I posit that the regional dress is whatever Stocks and Parliament are selling in any given season.

No, this won’t do – it has to be something really striking, like a mankini, a purple wig and knee-high gum boots.
