Sure sign of Aussie humour

AUSTRALIA is a unique place to explore with quirky bits and pieces hidden along the way, but if you thought you had seen and heard it all you might want to think again.

On a recent road trip to Warwick, Charlie Stone was travelling near Yangan and stopped on Strudwicks Rd to take a closer look at what he was sure was a joke sign.

"We were just passing through on Thursday, March 29, when we saw the sign," Mr Stone said.

"There were lots of people stopped taking photos and we thought it was a bit of a laugh.

"Everyone just wondered what the reward was for and that was what the discussion turned out to be.

"Was the reward for the person kissing the angry snake so they can buy some anti-venom or was the reward for the poor snake that might need its own vaccination against human diseases?"

Mr Stone said he had come across this sort of thing in his travels from time to time.

"It is also the sort of thing you would read about in travel books," he said.

"The sign just provided a good laugh for the drive."

Commonly known as the king brown, the mulga snake is the 20th most venomous snake in the world and the 17th in Australia.
