In other news I'm going straight to hell.

I know this is really harsh to say but what were the parents of the dead 16-year-old from Port Kennedy thinking when they selected the photos they then gave to The Slimes for their page one article at the weekend?

(Note: I don’t want to say the chick’s name in case her parent’s google it and and have to read a random blog slagging off their dead daughter but the story is here).

When your young, bogan daughter is killed because she a)is a bogan b)is dating a bogan and c)hangs out with bogans who think racing their cars qualifies as entertainment, maybe you want to reconsider your decision to hand over a handful of photos which, to be brutally, honest, sort of make her look like a bogan slut-whore.

As Josh, who showed me the paper, said: “She looks like she still wants to have sex with you, even though she’s dead”.

Creepily The Slimes’ (online at-least) headline of What a Waste somehow adds an even more seedy edge to the whole thing, as though it’s only a waste because she’s young, blonde, kinda slutty and could have been getting her tits out at the Dolls House in another two years instead of being buried by her family.

Obviously the death of anyone in a stupid car crash is a tragedy but maybe it’s a nice idea to try to give them a little dignity in death, even if they never had any in life.

Well that seals it Kate - I'll definitely see you in hell now. Read all about the death and subsequent head-shaking, finger pointing and ruined lives in this week's Weekend Courier. Now how's that for a sell?

Yes, you are on the downward escalator. But as we are all nodding our heads in agreement, so are we.

I'm glad I have a photo of Jean Rhys, instead of myself, as my profile pic otherwise I'd never be safe on the streets on Rockingham/Port Kennedy again...

Don't pretend like you've ever been to Rockingham Kate. We know you better than that.

How dare you Johnsy! I'll have you know I have driven, at great speed, through there many, many times...

Hmm, I agree. Slimes grabbed the pic from her myspace page. And, it was one of the more decent ones.

clearly you have toned it down after your recent experiences of being caught out by your blog´s far reaching popularity. but all the same, i can´t help but agree with your sentiments and will be glad of your company in hell. by thw way, i don´t think that visiting your western-suburbs boyfriend´s grandma´s ¨beach house¨ counts as time in the swinging pig, in case you were going to use that for street cred.

Damnit Kate, so far as everyone else knows Granny McTaggert's house is a hot bed of bogan crime and um... whatever else goes on in Rockingham...
