Not Lovin It

ronaldA Ronald McDonald statue was unceremoniously escorted out of the Huadu commerce area by the Chinese enforcement officers because he was blocking foot traffic. The officers ripped poor Ronald off his base, leaving behind his big red shoes, after telling the Maccas staff if they “accept the punishment, they can have their statue back.” As if. Word on the streets is Colonel Sanders was behind it!

First World Problem

fatFacebook have been forced to remove the emoji “feeling fat” from their status update icons after a body image group whined and then started a “fat is not a feeling” petition on Change.org . Seems they consider the weeny little icon with a double chin a form of body shaming. Hell, I see the smiley face as a threat to my gloomy disposition. Build a bridge and get over it. 😉

Bin Laden With Explosives

If you are wondering why all the rubbish bins have been welded shut at Brisbane railway stations its because of terrorist fears. Seems the metal bins are ideal to hide explosives that can be detonated remotely. This is what happens when you put the country on high alert…. a binless society.

Are You Nuts?

No peanut warning on Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey NutsIn the continuing effort to maintain the Nanny State tradition, a British supermarket has removed Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts from their shelves because, wait for it ….. they don’t have a peanut content warning. Who’s a monkey’s nut now?

Psst Are people with nut allergies that foolish?

Fallout From Penn State Continues

Oh my, Neil Diamond’s song Sweet Caroline has been erased from Penn State football games playlist. Seems in  the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal the lyrics “touching me, touching you”  are now deemed a tad inappropriate.

Who Took The Brisbane Axeman Sculpture?

OK Loons, someone has taken down one of my favourite pieces of public art in Brisbane. It has vamoosed without so much as a news story. I suspect the NAB bank, which now owns the piece, was behind its vanishing act. The Axeman sculpture which was created by John Underwood’s Artbusters Organisation was originally part of the World Expo 1988, hosted by Brisbane.It has been captivating tourists for nearly 25 years. I want it returned no questions asked!!!!  Fingers crossed its just getting a makeover, but I suspect it maybe gone for good. The Sunshine State just got a littler darker 😦

Clean Them Yourself!

%#@!

Attention disgruntled dishwashing people in the US. If you happen to be pissed off with the sudden ineffectiveness of Proctor & Gamble’s Cascade dishwashing powder, don’t worry, it’s simply they have stopped using phosphates in the ingredients. Which is basically, the cleaning agent! Reason? 16 states have banned the use of phosphates due to it’s fish killing properties so the company have complied and removed it.  Hmm, problem is, now the powder does jack shit.

Leave It To Beaver

Vagina? Hands praying?

Oh my, a beaver statue in Bemidji, Minnesota has been removed after some people thought the scene painted on it looked like a vagina rather than the hands of a woman praying. Ooh ah, a beaver’s beaver! The artist Deborah Davis and several others were so upset to discover the beaver had been removed from the Bemidji Sculpture Walk they stood at the empty site and held up “Censored” signs while other artists covered their beaver sculptures in protest too.

Psst This would never happen at a CowParade 🙂
