    … And Burn with the woods.

  9. Droll not Troll | 4:07 am |

    Close, but no cigar.

  10. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:08 am |

    Hopefully the bench is made of now inflammable wood

  11. Droll not Troll | 4:09 am |

    This bench is not for our extinguished guests.

  12. Droll not Troll | 4:10 am |

    I have a burning desire to sit there.

  13. Marum | 4:12 am |

    It’s Spotted Gum. Eucalyptus maculata.

  14. Marum | 4:14 am |

    Many times I set fire to my lady on a bench, but I have never yet had the bench start smouldering.

  15. Droll not Troll | 4:14 am |

    It’s safer than going into an alley where you could get vaped.

  16. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:14 am |

    So where is the now sitting area?

  17. Yu No Hoo | 4:15 am |

    Be careful with your arson that seat.

  18. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:16 am |

    NOTE: Burning soon

  19. Droll not Troll | 4:21 am |

    Fine for smoking.

  20. Droll not Troll | 4:27 am |

    Just say now to drugs.

  21. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:30 am |

    Quit smoking and go home, Area.

  22. Yu No Hoo | 4:32 am |

    @ Seventy2rd 4:08 am

    It’s the kind of wood that changes to ash.

  23. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:36 am |

    @ Droll not Troll | 4:27 am: Or meow to dogs 😉

  24. Yu No Hoo | 4:41 am |

    This is the work of some splinter group.

  25. Seventy2rd o clock | 4:48 am |

    @ Yu No Hoo | 4:32 am: It automatically becomes ash when smoking

  26. Frank Burns | 5:00 am |

    *As seen in California.

  27. Droll not Troll | 5:22 am |

    The area is really going to pot!

  28. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:45 am |

    WARNING: Smoking in now smoking area is prohibited

  29. Marum | 7:00 am |

    @72rd 0448.. Ash who?

  30. Marum | 7:38 am |


    Aldi are actually nuts. I went into an Aldi Store to buy either a lighter or matches to light a gas welding torch. They informed me that they don’t carry any implements that encourage smoking. (Aldi Strathpine – just out of Brissie)

    I told them that they are getting cause and effect mixed up. Firelighting devices don’t cause smoking, although smoking may increase the demand for firelighting de

    Needless to say, I won’t be back. I encounter enough, ideological ratbags in this country, without spending my money to encourage them.

    Much like the bloke on the train throwing peanuts out the window.

    Passenger: “Why are throwing peanuts out the window?”
    Peanut thrower: ‘It keeps the Elephants away.’
    Pas: “But mate! There are no Elephants in Australia.”
    PT: ‘Effective isn’t it?’

  31. Seventy2rd o clock | 8:28 am |

    There’s no butts about it

  32. EffEff | 10:56 am |

    @Seventy2rd o clock 4:04 am: It exports Export A cigarettes.

  33. EffEff | 10:56 am |

    @Marum: What about Burmese Tigers in Arizona?

  34. Seventy2rd o clock | 11:39 am |

    @ Marum | 7:00 am: I don’t know, ash somebody else!

  35. Droll not Troll | 4:42 pm |

    @EffEff | 10:56 am: What about Burmese pythons in Flor… oh, wait…

  36. Droll not Troll | 4:58 pm |

    @Marum | 7:38 am: IKWYM about Aldi. They also have that coin-in-the-slot shopping cart idea. Fine in principle but they provide no quick way for customers to get change to use them.

    BTW, worst way I ever saw someone light a cigarette- an electric soldering iron! PEE-YEW!!
    Saw an idiot light his cigarette with a welding torch once, but I figured any third-degree burns would be his problem!

  37. Marum | 5:01 am |

    @72rd 0700. The answer is “gesundheit”.

  38. EffEff | 12:45 pm |

    @Droll: I was referring to the classic Wile E. Coyote / Road Runner episode “Stop Look and Hasten”, with the Burmese tiger trap that could somehow catch a Burmese tiger anywhere. What a comedic masterpiece. But thanks for reminding me that Florida does have a problem with feral exotic pets, such as Burmese pythons.

  39. EffEff | 12:48 pm |

    @Marum: Someone lit a cigarette with a soldering iron? Cigarette smoke already contains enough chemical garbage. It doesn’t need tin and lead too.

  40. Droll not Troll | 8:05 pm |

    @EffEff | 12:45 pm: I didn’t get the reference, but as you gave the name, I watched it again on YouTube. So many great gags, I’d forgotten about the tiger! That kind of literal thinking can come up with some great comedy.

  41. Lora | 8:07 am |

    If that bench was in my town, it would be surrounded by about a million cigarette butts. Even with a trash can next to it.

  42. iLock | 5:04 pm |


  43. Marum | 5:24 pm |

    @Lora. IDNGAF about people smoking. What annoys me, is that they can never find a rubbish bin. In fact, at the townhouses I managed, they used to sit in the BBQ area, and flick the butts into the pool. Such actions defy logic. One particular individual, I accosted.
    Me: “Don’t destroy the facilities, someone else may want to use them after you.”
    He said nothing lust looked at me, with an IDGAF about anyone else look, on his face.
    So. Being somewhat irascible. And there being no witnesses. I seized his nuts in a vice-like grip, and threw him over the pool fence, into the pool. I offer no empirical evidence, to prove this cured his behaviour. Unfortunately the prick didn’t drown, and went on to sire more scum.

  44. EffEff | 4:26 pm |

    @Droll: I also liked the leg muscle vitamins, and Chekhov’s steel plate.

  45. Peter Chan | 2:31 pm |

    Mind your arse . . . sit at your own risk.
