Those brick walls in the parks. Just what are they for?

By johnboy 4 August 2012 31

brick thing

So, these things pictured; they’re verminous throughout inner Canberra.

And yet what are they for?

Surely not just as a canvas for street art?

Whatever they were built for in the long long ago seems to have passed from fashion.

And yet they remain.

Your thoughts, dear readers, are as ever appreciated.

What’s Your opinion?

So you’ve witnessed or participated in said underage sex?

What are you doing watching? Don’t you know that kind of behaviour can get you in trouble?

They’re part of the once Great Wall Of Canberra. To keep the rabbits out. Too many rabbits in Canberra.

Perhaps training walls like they have on police academy movies

Are you angered by the public sex, or by the fact that it is not adequately protected from the elements?

Or perhaps the public sex is inadequate?

Solo tennis practice. They have one at the Barton courts that sees regular use.

What I’d really like to know though, is where all this poorly hidden sex is happening, so I can check it out.

I would say parasitic, rather than verminous. We even had one living in our loungeroom when we moved into the house we’re in now. We removed it. It has not grown back.

Those my friend are our first, last and only line of Defence against the Reptoid Invasion! Count yourself lucky that we had the budget for them back in the 1960s.
