Wombat warning for Bonython

By Sammy 7 February 2007 24

The ACT Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, John Hargreaves, has announced a wombat warning specific to the residents of Bonython.

Bonython residents seem particularly unaware that the planet is inhabited by creatures other than themselves. Signs have been erected in the suburb to warn of the imminent danger of a wombat and car interfacing at speed.

Minister Hargreaves states:

“When you see a sign highlighting that kangaroos, wombats or even ducks are in the area, please slow down.”

Evidently, in Mr Hargreaves mind, the absence of any sign is implicit approval to drive however the hell you want.

This is reminiscent of the “No lines – do not overtake unless safe” message, which implies that if lines are present on the road, you can overtake when unsafe to do so.

WHich brings me to a question that has haunted Canberrans now for many a year.

Why are all those Teddy Bears nailed to trees on the Bungendore Road?

And who did it?

Evil bear haters? Someone who as a child was molested by a teddy bear? A jealous boyfriend? A raving looney with more money thatn sense?

And how the fructose did they get some of them up the trees so high!

There is a sign on the Monaro highway showing a kangeroo wearing skis.

I guess it must to warn those drivers heading to Thredbo.
