The disastrous storms currently edging across South Australia have resulted in some bizarre behaviour from Adelaide residents, as many have begun responding in peculiar ways to the news that their entire city is without power.
Local man, Jayden, a die-hard Port Adelaide Power fan has said that the moment he heard there was a black out on the street, he went straight to the kitchen to get some bananas.
In a blatantly offensive spectacle, Jayden began throwing pieces of fruit onto the street in a hope to racially vilify someone.
“Someone said there was a black out on the street and now we have no Power!” he said.
“Well, I’m sorry. I’m not letting anyone take away my favourite football team. I don’t care if he’s black or not,”
Jayden’s behaviour is a nod to the Port Adelaide tradition of racially abusing people with fruit.
Most recently a Port Adelaide supporter who was filmed hurling a banana at Adelaide Crow’s superstar Betts in the dying seconds of the Crows’ Showdown win after the mercurial forward’s fifth goal in his 250th game
It is believed similar scenes are happening right across the city as certain South Australians struggle with the news that there is a black out of power on their streets – not a black person out on their streets.
“There hasn’t been a black out in our street for a while,” says another man Bryson,
“I thought I better make the effort of throwing a banana at him. It’s what we do down here”
In the meanwhile, all of South Australia could be without power until the early hours of tomorrow morning after a network failure.
