Found this article in Sydney Morning Herald’s Heckler column. Makes for interesting reading, what do you think?
Canberra – where being polite is a capital offence
[Also sent in by Thumper]
There’s a third porn suburb, as anyone who sees the makeshift “XXX” signs along the Monaro Highway will know: Hume.
“Canberra – Home of the Hedgehog”
Oh – Mr Evil, I think you’re taking Adelaide’s claim to fame with the unsolved murder thing…
“Canberra – We don’t like the government either”
Here’s one for the lycra brigade:
“Canberra – The Nation’s Jock Itch Capital”
Canberra – Men in tights
Hey, porn has two suburbs (someone forgot Mitchell)
Canberra – It could have been Dalgety!
I think Capital Tourism or whatever they’re called these days should be picking these slogans up for their next ad campaign that will get shown on our screens.
Canberra- we’re only here because Sydney and melbourne missed out.
Seriously, the writer has a good point, lycra clad bicycle wannabees are a classic. They are just so vain and so laughable.
Seriously, do you need to have all the best lycra gear to ride a bike? After all, its just a fucking bike!
And they just look so bad….
“Canberra – more unsolved murders than anywhere else in Australia”
“Canberra – Round-about heaven”
“Canberra – Where porn has it’s own suburb”
Canberra – we hide the good stuff in obscure out of the way places
“Canberra – better than Queanbeyan”
“Canberra – Light No Fires”.
“Canberra – We know what’s good for you”
“Canberra – not quite as crap as you have been led to believe.”
“Canberra – bring your pet camel”
“Canberra – your tax dollar starts here”
Canberrans are being urged to conserve water as the drought deepens. Should we have permanent water restrictions like Perth does?
