National Gallery goes with another inquiry into cancer

By Big Al - 21 August 2006 26

The National Gallery has decided that it’s time to throw good money after bad and engage medical consultants to undertake yet another investigation of possible links between the building and a number of cancer cases among its personnel.

This comes despite the fact that an earlier professionally prepared report found no link between the building and apparent cancer cases amongst gallery staff.

The fact that the Community and Public Sector Union spokesperson David Hermolin is saying that the appointment is a positive step towards getting to the bottom of staff concerns suggests that this is indeed an expensive placebo – They’d be better of trying to find a link between cancer and being fat and stupid, sitting on your arse all day eating twinky bars and only heading out into the sunlight to suck back a Horizon mild…

If two chicks stand next to one and a half million volts of caged lightning, does that mean they’re both hot?

The guys at Questacon stand next to one and a half million volts of caged lightning that jumps 90cm – they aint that concerned about some pissy little mobile station!

Still doesn’t explain why it’s the Gallery, about 100 metres down the street, where people complain, not the Science Centre.

And you can light your own way through a foggy morning….

Keeps the head nice and warm for a few minutes though, when stepping out into the winter night after a hard day’s work…

I know what is causing the cancer.

Most people are not aware of the mobile phone tower that has been installed behind the circular facade of the National Science Centre. I know the fellow who made the fiberglass sheeting to cover the antennas.

That will do it.

Best not to tell people about the microwave door openers… A 10mW 10Ghz source less than 3 feet from peoples heads.

Anybody remember the relevant episode of Futurama? Calculaon to Bender:
“That was so bad it gave me cancer…”

There’s a lesson in that.

You skated without a helmet on? 😉

Danman 9:27 am 22 Aug 06

Naah – Im that tough the cancer checks on me 🙂
Tho to have been a skater I must have been brain injured at some stage

Mr Evil 9:15 am 22 Aug 06

Danman, Have you been checked for cancer lately???

Danman 9:09 am 22 Aug 06

So its haunted?

I remember when i was a sk8r Boi – theres a nice smooth undecover carpark next to the gallery – haunted only by skegs and the occasional security guard

No, the footsteps were like the staue of liberty in Ghost Busters 2….

Maybe that’s it? There is an evil vibe running in the Canberra sewers and some of the goo got into the NG and now it’s evil?

Thumper, you sure that it wasn’t the Aboriginal Embassy campers wheezing in the background on a cold Canberra morning?

Thumper 8:37 am 22 Aug 06

It is no laughing matter!

I used to work across the road from that building. It used to leer at you when you drove past in the morning.

And sometimes, when the wind was right, and is was dark and cold on a midwinter night after finishing work late, you could hear it wheezing as it’s footsteps slowly followed you along the footpath.

Well, okay, the wheezing bit may be an exaggeration…

No, it’s true: the building is full of cancer. Mel Gibson told me that cancer cells were injected into the concrete to kill everyone in the building – it’s all part of a Jewish global conspiracy to make artists die young and thereby keep the global art industry afloat. 🙂

What is it with people nowadays when they think that a building is killing them? We’ve had the paranoia surrounding the ABC Building in Brisbane, and now it’s the National Gallery of Australia! Whinging leftie wankers!
