The Stanhope legacy owl returns to Belconnen

owl

We have the happy news that the “owl” has returned to Belconnen.

Would it even be Belconnen without an enourmous phallus on a major road?

It’s been away for repainting. Non Government political candidates in Ginninderra should form an orderly queue to be photographed with it from the worst angles.

Bonus points to the candidate using perspective tricks to perform obscene acts.

“The Stanhope Legacy Owl” (love that) has returned to Belconnen.
Meanwhile the Barking Owl has returned to the ridge behind Macarthur. What a terrifying noise they make. Anyone agree with me about the noise?

It’s not a dog, is it? I’m not trying to have a barny here, but it would be a hoot if you’d made such a powerful mistake.

I’d keep going but I don’t know enough about owls.

For those who haven’t heard a barking owl, it does sound a little like a barking dog, but it has another call which has been labelled the “screaming women call” and it sounds like nothing like a dog.

I actually quite like the owl, although I admit I had never viewed it from the perspective shown in the accompanying photo.

Why does no-one ever complain about the giant electric blue phallus at the glassworks?

It could be a hair straightener? or a water bottle? But what could the above be?

I think a lot of people on here are confused as to what a penis actually looks like…

Well, thanks to your phallocentric contribution, at least now we know what a penis thinks about.

That thing is such a heap of crap. Why couldn’t they paint it where it is?

More to the point, why did we pay for a piece of art that continually needs maintenance such as annual painting?

Fair enough if it were a giant owl carved out of stone that would last for the next dozen or so centuries, but removal and painting every year?

It shouldn’t need painting again. Just a good rub down, now and again, should keep it happy.

Perhaps with some form of smoothing cream?

Yes. That ought to straighten it out.

I think of it as “The Mr Gillespie” sculpture.

So with Karise visiting, Belconnen will have The Owl and The Howl.

I for one welcome the return of our phallic-owl overlords…….

So you’ll be putting your hand(s) up for Legacy Owl’s rub-down then?

Based on recent ACCC rulings regarding consumer expectations of quality/price, I would say for $400k this owl should be covered by warranty for a long time to come.

Geez, I wish my owl had similar coverage. Private health insurance ain’t covering enough for its promiscuous behaviour.

The real question is what numpty approved the purchase of a fibreglass owl as an outdoor art installation?

Owl? I guess if you look at the statue from the right angle it could look like an owl. But I’m pretty sure that is just a giant fibreglass cock.

The repairs are apparently being made at the expense of the artist, but when taxpayers have forked out $400k in the first place you’d expect some kind of warranty. The real question is what numpty approved the purchase of a fibreglass owl as an outdoor art installation?
