Show Time


A lot of words were blogged last week. I think it's time for a photographic interlude. These pics are from a little while ago, taken at the Perth Royal Show.

The Show happens once a year. At this precious time all manner of creepy clowns, farm animals, escape artists, inventors and fast food sellers descend upon the Perth fairgrounds and take up residence for an entire week. I hadn't been for ages, but this year couldn't resist the opportunity to revisit its glory. So many bright shiny colours.

[My sister took some of these pics. She was "looking out for grotesque things," with the criteria being "stuff Gwyneth would like." Her pics are clearly superior to mine. I shall mark them with an asterisk*.]

I wish I'd seen this big blue monster close up, but it was too crowded here. I don't like to be bumped.

Patriotic Aussie fun times.

But behind the scenes: Muppet rights were clearly being abused.


*

*

Lots of offensive bumper stickers to choose from. All worthy of The Worst of Perth.


The hypnotist in action: "You are ALL Miss World."


Even ShamWow was there.

*

Also lots of human/animal/object bodies on display.

Including a chocolate banana/man:

And the car/face ride.




Seriously creepy...


Let the fluffy animals cleanse your mind.

Aw.

Now delicious cake.

The Daleks were clearly irresistible...


But this one was the best.

Did you know Justin Bieber pioneered Australia?





Alien pods and escape vehicle.






One last thing, which my sister spotted for me.


*

"Oh, that meat looks so juicy and.. HEAD HEAD THERE IS A MAN HEAD IN THE MEAT!!"


*
Must.Look.Away.

Food for thought, eh?

Well, that's about it. I like the show.
