Fridays mean seeing the funny side of swine flu

Seen at Gordon Reserve, Spring Street Melbourne this afternoon was the humourous scene above. The statue of deceased colonial-era Australian poet Adam Lindsay Gordon was modified to humourous effect by the addition of a dust mask on its face and a sign around its neck reading:

"ice skating
causes more
deaths than
swine flu"

So totally Melbourne. Have a top weekend everyone.

See that's why I love Melbourne.

In Sydney they'd put a Ken Done jumper on the statue, and hang an investment portfolio around his neck.

Is that a floral tribute there too?

Look at the hideous Melbourne weather...

Hah! In WA, we cut off Ronald McDonald's head (not me personally I should add)
