Wilson gives M'boro the thumbs up
KEVIN "Bloody" Wilson is renowned for his comedy, but recently he has unknowingly become an ambassador for Maryborough.
During his last visit in 2013, he dropped into the Post Office Hotel for a few cold ones and took a photo of the pub's iconic sign, which sits out the front of the business.
The sign reads: Husband Day Care Centre. Need time to yourself? Need time to relax? Want to go shopping? Leave your husband with us! We look after him for you! You need only pay for his drinks!
Mr Wilson has since posted the photo to his Facebook page and captioned it: "And Betty wonders why I love touring Queensland!"
Since he posted the photo it has been "liked" more than 35,000 times and it has been shared more than 31,000 times.
Manager of the Post Office Hotel Michael Heiser said Mr Wilson had provided both the pub and the city with invaluable publicity.
"It's a good form of advertising," Mr Heiser said.
He said it wasn't just Kevin "Bloody" Wilson who got a kick out of the sign - he sees people photographing it all the time.
During busy periods, he has seen between 40 and 50 people a day stop and take a photo.
Mr Heiser said it was a pleasure to have a visit from Mr Wilson during his stay in Maryborough - and the much-loved funny man had promised he would return to the hotel.
"He had a couple of cold beers," Mr Heiser said of Mr Wilson's visit.
"He enjoyed his time here.
