Truth in advertising?

By johnboy 7 December 2008 22

One of the stranger (or perhaps more depressingly predictable) things about Canberra is our rules on advertising signage. You can’t put up a billboard. But if you can write it with flowers and pay off the Government you can still advertise on prime real estate down Northbourne Avenue. Assuming, that is, your outfit is adjudged sufficiently worthy.

Babscott1 sent in this one from the foot of Vernon Circle a few months ago. She thought it a profound statement on Canberra’s heart.

Go on, have a snigger. You were probably going to hell anyway.

What’s Your opinion?

It seems that many people with CP actually refer to themselves as spastics. I remember that the comedian Steady Eddie used the term constantly and said he wasn’t offended by it.
