NZ's Wellington City Council has promised to remove a sign in the suburb of Highbury which proudly alerts the public of the location of Old Bollock Rd, the New Zealand Herald reports. Council spokesman Richard MacLean described the reclassification of Old Bullock Rd as an "astounding" error and admitted "someone had obviously …
They really balled that one up then..
Got any spare T-Shirts?
This looks like an "Elderly Persons" sign competition winner!
What to do with it...?
"We're having an informal discussion now about what to do with the sign when it finally does come down... anything could happen cause clearly it's an instant classic and a trophy."
Surely there's no need for discussion -- ebay.co.nz is working perfectly.
Now if only there was a miraculous simulacrum on the reverse side...
Old Bollock Road
"People wanting to get their hands on it"
Paris because she could have her hands on mine any day...
a bollocking then!
'course it was an accident, mate!
Now, about that repaint job for Cants Crossing ...
"having an informal discussion now about what to do with the sign when it finally does come down"
Don't bother - some souvenir hunter will have made away with it before you manage to open your mouth to speak!
(Fully agree that the odds of this being an accident, rather than an "accident", are a hundred to one...)
Just brilliant. I want to live there!
In Bere Regis / Dorset
Shitterton is a suberb (if you can call it that) of the above named town.
Oddly, Google maps ignore the fact that it exists, but good old wikipedia has a reference to it.
Paris.... because she would not need any help in finding the road to....
@ JIM THE BOSS
Do you think...
.. that they would ship it to the UK when I win the eBay auction??
I wonder how much the P&P would be..
Leave it as it is!
They should leave it as it is. Tourism will go up 1 point.
- gates cose it's the kind of thing he would pay millions to someone to do for him.
someone remind me...
...is JIM THE BOSS a troll, a pillock or a highly skilled comedian?
Screw bloody ebay. Bunch of feckin' pricks. trademe.co.nz for the win!
Old Betty Swollocks lives here
Pity the people who live in Durham:
That's not all
There is another street in Wellington called TORLESS PLACE. The council regularly has to clean it up when "enterprising youths" paint out the bottom right leg of the R. Think about it...
Gotta love Wellywood.
@someone remind me...
Jim the boss is a troll, but barely one. He/she/it lacks the necessary skills to be a proper troll. Me thinks jim the boss has seen the kind of reaction that a man from mars gets at times and this is a half assed attempt to emulate his "success".
Why would anyone in New Zealand stick anything onto the big pile of stinking poo that is ebay? Trademe.co.nz is far better and used far more throughout Godzone.
Just round the corner from where i live
If the sign go's missing tonight it wasn't me!
ebay v trademe
Too bloody right
Second that one
ebay is designed by morons, run by idiots and targeted at the clueless
trademe is so much easier to use and far more functional than that piece of shite ebay
We made the Reg!
Shitterton? Wouldn't be anywhere near Slack Bottom would it?
Paris, because she could have her hands on my footpaths any day.
And how long...
...before the "u" is turned back into an "o" by some waggish fellow with a pot of paint?
@What to do with it...?
tradme.co.nz is where the kiwis go, not feebay. Trademe is not owned by ebay, unlike gumtree or craigslist but by fairfax media.
@AC aka Betty Swollocks
Yeah, I've heard of her and her friend, Hugh Jarse.
btw, "Jim the Boss", get a life.
So does that mean..
..we have to get rid of the Balls Pond Road in Hackney then?
They might go to eBay anyway in the hope of a larger number of folk worldwide seeing it. Who outside of NZ will have heard of trademe ?
I once spent Hogmany (New Years Eve to the Barbarian Hordes) in Pity Me in Co. Durham it was near Langley (Park), Quebec and 15 miles from No Place!!!
Mines the one with A-Z in the pocket
