Images of Canberra – The Horror of the HoffGnome

By johnboy - 26 September 2005 7

I’ve long felt that the humorous use of David Hasselhoff’s image was a personality substitute on the part of the terminally boring. I also suspected the “Rock and Roll Gnomes” of Floriade 2005 (and indeed pretty much everything around that ever-expanding monstrousity of a flower festival) of filling a similar role. Now Jonathon Reynolds (aka JR) has sent in hideous proof of this confluence.

The Horror of the Hoffgnome

It pretty much encapsulates the whole business, lacking only a horde of fat bastards using a traffic light to hold up traffic on Commonwealth Avenue because they’re too damn feeble and lazy to walk 50 metres to the perfectly functional underpass.

Got an image in, or of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to johnboy@the-riotact.com

JB – so much anger there: you’re making me jealous! The last time I was that angry was when I had chronic cameltoe for a day.
