It's back and it's smelly and it's got Mount Isa in its sights.
The funny but controversial Facebook page "Shit Towns of Australia" is back with another of its competitions, this time the "shitttiest town of Queensland" and Mount Isa has made the final.
According to the page "the shit town showdown" is between Mount Isa and the southern Brisbane suburb of Logan for the dubious right to be crowned "the Sunshine State's shittiest shithole for 2020".
Apparently Logan is defending its "title" from 2019 and the page is encouraging people to vote on Friday for the 2020 event.
It follows a similar battle between the same two places in 2019 in the semi final of the "Shit Towns of Australia" which Logan won.
Other towns in the reckoning in that competition included Tennant Creek (NT) Dubbo (NSW) and Mount Gambier SA).
Mount Isa defeated Ipswich in the semi-final this time round for the right to face off Logan.
In the expletive ridden post accompanying the semi-final, the page described Mount Isa as "mercifully tucked away in the middle of butt**** nowhere, Mount Isa is a toxic desert hellscape with a lengthy rap sheet of shitness."
While some see the competition as harmless fun, others are unimpressed.
Former Mount Isa mayor Ron McCullough took to the page to condemn the choice of Mount Isa among shit towns.
"Not amusing, not entertaining, not fair and not close to the truth," Mr McCullough said.
"Mount Isa has always been an unpretentious (place)".
Keith Whelan agreed saying the laugh was on organisers for their "disgusting, ill informed diatribe"
"Don't react, just block the rubbish out of your reality and keep on being amazing Mount Isans," he said.
