“WARNING TO MEDIA:
Poisonous snakes reported on Special Stages. Take care!!
Well, it was nice of the organizers of Coates Hire Rally Australia 2013 to place the memo where it was most likely to be seen. And, to be fair, photos of this notice did make the rounds over social media, reaching people on the stages (those with signals and those who heard it from those with signals, after messenger birds were eaten by snakes), who could use the update, and people in Europe, who needed something to wake them up a bit (after blasting Twitter with complaints about the ungodly hours, affecting them in ways no one else has ever experienced or could ever begin to understand, true bravery in action, failed to do the trick). So, job well done, Rally Australia.
Plus, it was just the most unappetizingly delicious combination of disturbingly horrifying and completely hilarious, marrying juxtaposition and contradiction (unappetizingly delicious, people!) in an (assumedly) unintentional homage to the Wedding Bells stages.
