The warning came with this.

And since Australia was settled by nothing but convicts, the country knows a thing or two about criminals.

I’ll be in Brisbane next Monday. I’ll inspect for damage. Meanwhile, let’s discuss if this is best use of police time. (Via Mashable and the 4,927 people who forward this to me.)

    That’s right… Nickelback are “awful”. So awful they are still touring and able to fly to places like Australia to perform.

    Bet the guy who made the poster ONLY DREAMS of someday being anywhere NEAR as unpopular-yet-somehow-still-adored.

    Or maybe Bickelback are copying Alice Cooper’s old marketing ploy of posting “protest material” before a gig.
    No. I’m not a Nickelback fan. The songs I’ve heard are decent enough.

    But I am tired of “haters” or as we used to call them: “Assholes”.
