Ok, the “owl” might be a teensy bit phallic from the right angle

By johnboy 13 May 2011 40

owl or penis?

So the Owl unveiled yesterday has attracted a lot of debate.

But that’s just viewed from in front. Viewed from behind it looks like a very special message to the people of Belconnen doesn’t it?

Thanks to Gerry Built for the image. Got a picture you want to share with the world? Email it to images@the-riotact.com .

Nice Mr Coe, the Liberal MLA put a leaflet through my letter box this morning telling me that; “ACT Labour spent $400,00o of public money ” on the Owl/Penis. He thinks that money would have been better spent on roads, mowing and traffic problems.

Canberra City Council ought to concentrate on roads, rates and rubbish. I guess the OwlPenis might come under the third category. And constitute mis-use of the second.

I have to say I agree with him.

If I were in the Liberal think tank, i wpould run ads with pictures of all these great art pieces with price tages attached. I wounder what the total would be. What could we better spend those Millions on?

Nooooooooooo!

This’ll give Danny Nalliah and the Misguided Nutjobs another excuse to come back to town on a mission from God to save us with another prayer offensive.

I hope so! It was a real hoot last time!

PB, I had to look that up – but very wise words indeed. 🙂

That’s right. She became an owl. Not a $400k penis-shaped monument to Viagra 🙂

Has anyone asked the ACL what they think is ???

PB, for someone who allegedly has very little time for the Welsh affliction, you do seem to know a hell of a lot about Wales, and Welsh folklore.

You’re not suffering from any form of Welshness, are you?????

BLODEUWEDD

) (Welsh) “Flower Face”; “White Flower”. Lily maid of Celtic initiation ceremonies. Also known as the Ninefold Goddess of the Western Isles of Paradise. Created by Math and Gwydion as a wife for Lleu. She was changed into an owl for her adultery and for plotting Lleu’s death. The Maiden form of the Triple Goddess; her symbol was the owl; goddess of the Earth in bloom. Flowers, wisdom, lunar mysteries, initiations. Blodeuwedd was created from the flowers of oak, broom, and meadowsweet by Gwyddion and Math as a wife for Gwyddion’s nephew Llew. This arose because Llew had been cursed by his mother, Arianrhod, that he would never win a bride of his own people.While Llew was away one day Blodeuwedd saw Gronw hunting in the woods and the two fell madly in love at first sight. She and Gronw made plans to kill Llew, but because he was no mere mortal, Gronw asked his lover to discover for him the secret of his death. Blodeuwedd coaxed the information out of Llew, and not only passed the information along to Gronw, but tricked Llew into being at the right place at the right time. At the moment of his death, Llew turned into an eagle and flew away. Gwyddion sought out Blodeuwedd to seek revenge, and for her punishment decided he would turn her into a bird, on which only lived by night, a carnivore whom other birds shunned and feared. Thus she became an owl.

Is the size dependant on the temperature?

A quick glance at the pic tells me that size is not so much the issue here. It appears more like a basic erection problem. Maybe Belconnen motorists are just plain ugly ??? Nah, I think we will go with temperature this time.

Proof that there’s a giant cock behind every piece of public art in this town, .

The first thing that came to mind when I saw it was a song by Tim Minchin: Ten Foot C#ck and a Few Hundred Virgins.

Cost about $400k to build, right? Looks like they needed a LOT of viagra to erect that monster! A public salute from Stanhope to Ron Jeremy 🙂
