Mindscapes auctions off the Centenary’s naughtiest numberplate

By Barcham - 24 September 2013 12

Ooh!

If proving that you both love Canberra and still have the sense of humour of a 16 year old boy is important to you, then you’re going to want to bid on this.

C-069 Commemorative Numberplate

To mark Canberra’s 100th birthday, Canberra Centenary has donated a number of commemorative number plates to not-for-profit and community organisations around Canberra for fundraising purposes with %20 of the money raised to go the Dollars for Dili. Not only was the Mindscapes Festival lucky enough to receive one of these number plates to raise money for our annual Mental Health Arts Festival…

WE GOT THE BEST ONE!!!

That’s right ladies and gentleman… Here at Mindscapes we promote the pursuit of mental health through every means possible which is why we bring to you: Centenary Number Plate 69. The first plate to be auctioned off went for over $9000, and their number was nowhere near as exciting as ours. So get your cheque books out and let the bidding begin!!! (Cheques not accepted)

This Auction kicks off on Tuesday September 24th and closes at 2pm on Friday October 11th so check into the Facebook event every day to keep up to date and stay on top of the bid!

The successful bidder will need to contact the Mindscapes Festival Co-ordinator Rachel Muller to receive a letter with the information on how to collect the number plate. Please email rachel.muller@mhccact.org.au for details. Terms and Conditions set out by Centenary of Canberra apply.

What’s Your opinion?

Gee lots of thought went into this design. That’s one ugly commemorative 100 year numberplate .

So no one will steal it after you paid a ridiculous $9000+ for it.

“soixante neuf” belongs to another era. I hadn’t seen anything referring to “69” as sexual in decades. However, not TEN decades. What the hell is the Centenary doing involving itself with this sort of wrinkly, unpleasant prurience?

My Grandma’s the only person I know who’d use the word Tuppence, and she’s probably unaware of the significance of the number also.

Ok, I’ll bite; what is the significance of 069?

69 on its own maybe worth a tenner, but C069? Tuppence at a push.

Wine me, dine me and 69 me.
Not sure if the Kama Sutra is of help here or not.

I wonder what they’ll get for the equally purile B00B5?

Sorry about that….

I don’t get it? It’s neither naughty, rude, nor funny? Wouldn’t give you tuppence for it.

“C-069 Commemerative Numberplate” – there’s a meme where there should be a memo – so the sixteen year old boy is more hipster than budding bureaucrat (or perhaps his mind was on other things).

%20

Really? 20% might be more like it. Normally the mistake is people putting the dollar sign after the value, e.g. 45$…..

So, why are we getting our cheque books?!
