ZenTiger The Bill Posters Natural Enemy

There's two funny things in this post. The first is that a Dunedin Council Property Manager has discovered the natural enemy of the posters plastered over walls and fences: A 'cancelled' sticker over the poster.

Or is a low turn out to a gig just a sign that the gig itself is seen as a boring, non-event that cannot compete with staying home and watching 'queer eye' re-runs? You decide:

Ms Ellis said this week only 35 people attended the Lavender Globe awards on Saturday, compared with about 150 in previous years. She blamed the ‘‘cancelled’’ stickers [someone] put on Dunedin Pride Week posters on hoardings in front of the Wall Street development in George St.

Odd that they seem to have been some of the only posters dealt with in this way. And why not just put a sticker saying do not post over them ? Or warn the organisers ?

Turnout was probably down because of the price too. Though on a side note a lot of the Pride Week Poster were vandalised and I had a nasty homophobic experience the other day just because of the clothes I was wearing.
