“R U OK? Day” followed up with far less popular “R U OBAHN? Day”

DAN SCHMIDT

In the wake of the extremely important R U OK? Day, a group of South Australian public transport enthusiasts has launched the far less important R U OBAHN? Day.

Unlike R U OK? Day, R U OBAHN? Day serves essentially no purpose whatsoever, it just gives a bunch of numpties and satirical news reporters a chance to talk about the O-Bahn.

Since the name itself doesn’t even make any sense, not even to us, Adelaide Mail reporters caught up with the campaign organiser on the 541X to find out what this was all about.

Campaign manager, Agnes O’Barnes, stated ‘Well, I think it’s pretty obvious. We’re simply just raising awareness of the O-Bahn throughout South Australia. It’s an important thing to talk about, I actually think every day should be R U OBAHN? Day’.

Rapidly running out of content to fill a complete story based on a very loose pun (even by our standards), we probed Agnes to talk about the O-Bahn further.

‘I think it would be great to have more people talking about the O-Bahn, there’s been some great initiatives lately. Of course there’s the O-Bahnacle Bills seafood delivery service, and who could forget the “Come and Try the O-Bahn with your own car day”? Oh, sorry, you guys might want to leave that bit out. Didn’t you get sued or something?’

The complete lack of success of R U OBAHN? Day has somehow urged organisers to organise more local campaigns including R U O’SULLIVAN BEACH?, R U OG ROAD? and R U OTR?.

Ridiculous.

Note: This article is in no way intended to undermine the R U OK? initiative. Speaking openly about mental health and distress is extremely important to all of us. Please reach out to those who you care about, you don’t need to be an expert, just listen and be supportive.
