Queenslanders aroused by dogs, according to Queensland sign
A ROAD sign at a remote outback roadhouse shows of a 'more special kind of love' between man and man's best friend in the Sunshine State than is considered tasteful in most other parts of the country.
The sign is at the Puma Camooweal Roadhouse - which sits 13km from the Northern Territory border - in the small Queensland town of about 200 people and probably more than their fair share of dogs.
The signs says "Camooweal welcomes you to Queensland", in a way, seemingly, no other town can boast.
The NT News presumes the dog depicted is a Jack Russell but cannot be certain.
Ironically, despite the sign, dog lovers would be well advised to make the 13km trek to the west, with the Northern Territory Criminal Code Act stipulating a maximum three year penalty for bestiality, while Queensland courts can hand out up to seven years, a perplexing anomaly considering Queenslanders are such notorious sexual deviants.
This is not to suggest the NT has more of a problem with this sort of affection, the opposite in fact, the more lenient penalty suggests it is hardly an issue. Territorians, more rightly use their dogs as a lure to have sex with other humanoids.
Well placed sources have told The NT News that the sign may have been crudely altered.
The sign also indicates the townsfolk are proud of their new electronic funds transfer point of sale (EFTPOS) capabilities - but they may not yet have payWave - probably Australia's last public telephone, souvenirs for sale - most likely 'I love Camooweal', 'Straight Outta Camooweal', and 'I love dogs' T-shirts - as well as public toilets, camping and park benches.
There is one section left blank in case the town gets a dazzling new feature.
The town was gazetted in 1884 and got electricity in 1852.
It follows on from some famous crudely altered road signs in the Northern Territory.
