mixed messages at Floriade

My friend Celesimone took this yesterday at Floriade.

Whomsoever can come up with the most amusing caption shall win a pint of beer or cider at the inner north watering hole of their choice.

What’s Your opinion?

I find it rather strange that the guvmnt is still pushing the “Live Here” barrow despite the severe lack of affordable accommodation in this town. Seems akin to a movie theatre employing a footpath salesman to spruik the last remaining seats in the very front row of a popular film, it might fill the last seats but once inside the patrons would be rather pissed off.

True, except that there are still lots of jobs needing to be filled.

“Free dead tramp with every new apartment sold.”

“George never quite got the hang of limbo dancing.”

“Leading the charge through the banner, George had tried to burst through in the one place they had used a metal stake.”

“His glory days in “Father Ted” now long behind him, Frank Kelly tries to revive his role as “Father Jack””

“Pretend pastor Danny Nailliah find a willing member for the role of christ at Floriade, unfortunately it’s not easy keeping him on the cross.”

If you lived here, you could be having this much fun too.

Aww, poor little petal.

It’s either a public servant doing some groundwork or a lying politician.

I guess he found a reason.

Get out while the getting is still good!!

“an act government-funded performance artist delicately counterpoints the banner’s optimistic message in homage to the chief minister’s stance on homelessness…”

“Canberra: Living here sure beats dying here”…

Wraith 9:40 am 05 Oct 10

The obvious genius behind the marketing slogan just blew him away.

troll-sniffer 9:29 am 05 Oct 10

Caption: “Here? Right here? You mean ‘here’ don’t you?”

On a more serious note…

Its better than dying at Floriade

Gobbo 9:18 am 05 Oct 10

“Why not live here? Why not die here? Canberra: for every part of your life cycle.”

davesact 9:05 am 05 Oct 10

“Flat out in Canberra”

He’s just staking out his turf for when the crowds are gone.

We saw him yesterday as well… I kind of wanted to check for a pulse…
