Fight Against Maturity

Achtung! Schlangen!



Austrian officials fed up with motorists stopping to urinate by the roadside have put up fake snake warnings to scare them into using toilets.

Franz Perder, manager of a motorway restaurant in Guntramsdorf where some of the signs have been placed, said: “The idea is that people stop to relieve themselves, see the warning about snakes and get back in the car instead of going to the bushes to take a leak. Of course there are no snakes but they don’t know that. The warnings have worked really well.”


There are just some places you don’t want to be snake bit.

  1. Reminds me of an old Woody Allen movie, Bananas. “What do you do if you get bitten by a snake?” “Suck out the poison!” The devil’s in the video details.

  2. You suck out the poison. I’ll just wait in the car.
