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]
“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”

The funny thing is he would have wandered straight past places like Dickson with no idea they were there.
Internal leadership strife is being reported in the Opposition. Is Alistair Coe the right person to lead the Libs to the next election?
