Funny Signs of Tasmania

I don't know what it is about Tasmania and hilarious signs, but there are plenty to be seen.  So many in fact that a blog post dedicated entirely to them seems totes approps:

What the hell is a "crackpot"?  In this context at least?

I would like to personally thank this sign for existing, because when we got out of the rental car to take it we realized that a bottle of red wine was leaking all over the floor.  Had this sign not existed we could've lost a whole bottle of wine.  Oh the humanity!

That sheep is cute!  What they're selling, though, not so much.  I don't know who is buying bags of excrement, but we've seen many signs in the farming parts of Queensland advertising "horse poo" for sale.  Sadly we've never gotten a picture of it, though.  One time we even saw a sign for "mini horse poo".  What is mini?!  The horse or the poo?  I can't die without solving this mystery!

Heh.  Is it normal to find the word "blowhole" funny?

This one is funny, but also sad.  Poor Tasmanian devils!  They are actually really adorable, and they're dying off quickly.  And they don't want to be squashed!

This one is my personal favorite.  We drove several kilometers out of our way so we could turn around and get a shot of this.  Speedo check!  They must want to inspect the Speedo like this guy is wearing (from this post):

Now, I don't know what the hell "speedo" means in this context, but I'm guessing it has something to do with speed or speedometer.  It also reminds me of this:

Taco, burrito, what's coming out of your Speedo?
These next pictures aren't funny, but a mind trip to see them in Australia:

You don't think it ever gets cold in Australia, but I can assure you in Tasmania it sure does!  There was even snow in places.  Snow!  It was the first time in 18 months I've laid eyes on snow.  Granted there wasn't piles and piles of it, but there was some.  In Australia!

In a lot of places I felt like I was in Norway or New Zealand, not Australia, based on the scenery and temperature.  Not that I've ever been to New Zealand before (next month!) but I have seen Lord of the Rings.

Tasmania is the one state not on the mainland continent of Australia.  It's a whole different world down there!

(More pictures to follow in a separate post.)
