Franks caught vandalising own billboards

In a strange twist in the Franks billboard monitoring saga, infra red camera footage has revealed that Franks himself was responsibile for defacing his own hoardings.

Franks had previously claimed that he was the victim of an organised campaign to deface his hoardings and had installed infra red cameras to monitor his billboards. Photographic evidence revealed bored teenagers were responsible yet Franks has continued to insist “Mr Big” is still at large.

However, further evidence revealed today shows “Mr Big” is none other than Franks himself.

    Burt won’t be happy, ‘sod.

    In this spirit of frankness I feel the need to confess that I am the love child of Bryan Spondre and his vacuum cleaner.

    [lprent: I think you’ve been associating with the ‘sod too much.]

    What concerns me is not so much the fact he’s vandalising his own billboards, but rather, the fact he’s wearing a hoodie! Yuck.

    Stephen Franks would never, and I repeat, NEVER wear a hoodie.

    You might want to check out – see the photo down below and you might see a similarity, aided with a bit of photoshop super-imposing.

    Lies! All lies!

    Good God, that’s not a hoodie he’s wearing?

    Is it for real? I did wonder if it was a law and order trick to draw sympathy for zero tolerance, to deface own boards. I wonder if boards make any difference to anyone’s vote? Nice smile vote for him. Nice dress vote for her. Pretty board vote for it!

    Hmmm even he thinks he is an ugly muppet

  11. I knew those Nat’s were onto something about hoodies, as soon as he puts one on, look what happens!

    Hard to tell what’s humour on The Standard sometimes…for those wondering, the tags ‘humour’ and ‘satire’ usually give it away.

    I was almost persuaded

  14. Tane 14

    Ha! Good to see you see the funny side Stephen.

    Arrrgh! Billy – you shouldn’t do that to us so soon after lunch!

  16. No – I was almost persuaded! Halt this identity theft immediately!

    Billy: comment of the week, thank you!

    In this time of crisis, with the economy going down the drain, and the risk of job losses, it reassures me to know that National’s Wellington Central candidate is so in tune with issues on the minds of the people he wants to represent.

    Of course not. They were busy elsewhere.

    Rex: Hilarious. Was that the Palin standing as Vice pres of USA?

  21. Perhaps he has just taken them down after they have been vandalise?

  22. Bored teenagers?

    How about teenagers who don’t have any respect for other people’s property.

  23. He hasn’t been vandalising his own posters, but he has been vandalising other peoples’.

    A hypocrite as well as a bigot?
