Last beer sign fine for readers
ONLINE reaction to the Apple Tree Creek Hotel billboard just outside Childers on the Bruce Hwy has restored my faith in people.
I noticed the sign last Thursday on my travels around the Isis region to check on local flooding, and the “last beer on the Bruce Highway before Gin Gin” part sprung to mind.
I asked the News Mail to throw the photo on its Facebook page to find out what people thought, and I was happily blown away by the response.
Any fear I had of politically correctness and the slowly progressing “nanny state” is now shattered.
Privately, I’m a big fan of pushing boundaries, particularly when it comes to political correctiveness, just so long as it’s tasteful.
But even tasteful comments deemed politically incorrect have come under fire in recent time. Thankfully on this occasion common sense – and humour – won, and I look forward to stopping by the Apple Tree Creek Hotel for more non-alcoholic bevies before doing business on the Bruce.
FUN: This sign outside Childers caught some attention, but most Facebook respondents said it was fine, humorous, and an inventive play on words seen in other ads.
