Harold Bishop has a posse

The Rae St Institute > Blog archive > Blatant theft of ideas

In the spirit of others.. or maybe just because I felt like ripping off an idea, here's some of the weird crap people are googling to end up here -- and in another blatantly stolen concept, two of these are made up.
  • racv straight line reverse
    twice, and from entirely different locations. Huh?
  • the benefits of creative communications to any supermarket
    Because everyone knows what a keen and skilled visual merchandiser I am.
  • topiary pictures
    mmm... hedges. um.. but where?
  • wayne dyer debunk
    Yep. You heard it here first. Disproving the existance of Wayne Dyer, since 1974.
  • incriminating ballarat tales
    Did you hear the one about the man from burrumbeet? Or wait, was it Nantucket, I can never remember.
  • who hates damian murphy
    Evidently, I do. Or something. Supposedly.
  • giant bears
    Yes, I sell them now. Lots of them.
  • invisible parking concepts
    Um yes. With teleportation helmets. And parking inspectors. And such.
  • cliff a security liason officer
    Is that a verb or a noun?
    Either Sir Cliff Richard has changed careers, or there's a sinister plot involving large falls and an underpaid contractor
  • notable fourth century warlords
    Research is what we do best here at the Institute. Research about really weird crap. Like dudes with unpronouncable names from countries that don't exist anymore.
  • "everyone hates him" family gossip
    They sure do. Whoever he is. Fucker.
  • too small to get fucked
    Um. This one is just disturbing.
If you can guess which two are made up you win the people's ovation.. and fame forever. Or something.

irrelevant, but a muse to the unmused. - volvo corby, Saturday, June 11, 2005, 6:20 AM
im hoping youll find the irony in this, as it has been lost on all i have told so far.
picture this; huge army green defender, equiped with "i pick out small children with a toothbrush every sunday from the..." bull bar driven by a quasi-mod couple (oh, that was not the irony, its gets better) on a saturday afternoon with a rather huge ikea cabinet (complete with extra-terrestrial vcr instructions on box) strapped to the roof.
the back widow sports a sticker, not in the vien you would expect from such a moving catastrophe. no "i own a gun and i vote"...no, oh no.
in the place of "no fear" was the sequence of numbers; 11:11 21.12.2012.
was this a declaration to their love of WWF, (wwp,b,f,d or whatever its called now). no! the end of the mayan calender. the beggining of the golden age. shed all of this world and prepare for the enlightenment.
apparently, the new enlightenment can not be achieved in the back of a toyota corolla seca ascent hatch-back, but that of an army green defender with all the ikea needed to start the new world.
get some sleep.

I'm struggling to work out how anyone could fail to see the irony in that.

You must submit them for reneducation, STAT!

Though of course it could also be a fatalist thing, the old eat-drink-be-merry thing, y'know, "We're all fucked anyway so I'm just going to buy me a big fuckoff 4WD because I feel like it"...

But more likely just stupidity.

Money doesn't make the world go round.

Stupid people do.

Incidentally I was talking to someone the other night about how Ikea instructions have been written for extra terrestrials, all Voyager-style.

You're either a mind reader or I know you, and you were there...

The weirdest search we're had since The B_lt Googling Incident was something to do with splinting broken kitten bones. Reading sad stuff like that makes me wish they'd used commonsense & simply called the vet instead.

But y'know, you can save money!
