I’m not drawing any such thing!

My ASCII skills are pretty ordinary anyway, and wordpress doesn’t like lots of spaces in code tags.

Hmm not quite the same thing as a long departed american battleship famed for it’s gluttony.

Wait, I had a memory flash. I’m sure I read somewhere earlier in the year that Bosom Buddies is having some kind of significant anniversary this year that might just be 10 years. After a google search I found their site http://www.bosombuddies.com.au/index.htm and the logo is remeniscent of the flower bed although the site doesn’t seem to have been updated in years, so who knows if it’s them or not.

I think you get the drift, but if you don’t, then you can download it from http://goggo.dyndns.org/hmassamuel.txt

nor can I, maybe they should have drawn a boat in the flowers.

I can, however, draw an imaginary HMAS Samuel

Well the USS Maine was retrospectively re-classified as BB10 when the USN brought in its numbering system.

Famed for her extraordinarily heavy coal consumption I can’t imagine why they’d be paying to publicise it on Northbourne.

I much prefered the ABC logo at that intersection. I’m just going to assume that “BB 10” is another banana wearing pyjamas, although Google tells me it might be a battleship, do we have battleship shops in Canberra?

Some-one isn’t getting their money’s worth from their advertising payments to our jealously controlled government billboard monopoly.

Speaking of our gorgeous flowerbeds, does anyone know what the one on Northbourne near Dickson is supposed to say?
having spent a lot of time looking at it while avoiding the window-washer at those lights, I eventually decided it said “BB 10”, but buggered if I know what that means.

Nice pic! Love urban type photos of the environment we live in!

If I didn’t know what the others looked like then I would be dying of suspense, mainly due to a lack of air that occurs when one holds one’s breath.

Actually, from some angles, the flowers have a rather suspicious shape.
