‘You had one job!’ Tradie makes a VERY obvious error when rebuilding an outback pub two years after it burned to the ground
- The Muckadilla pub in outback Queensland rebuilt after a fire two years ago
- The pub’s builder created huge attention after misspelling the name on building
- It was builder Rob Pollock’s idea to put ‘The Mucka Bup’ on building as a joke
A tradie is the talk of an outback town after misspelling ‘pub’ while rebuilding the local watering hole two years after it was destroyed by fire.
The Mucka pub in the town of Muckadilla, 40km west of Roman in Queensland, burned to the ground in August 2019, leaving the town’s tiny community devastated.
Farmer Marty Coomber took it upon himself to buy and rebuild the institution 12 months after the blaze.
As the revamp reaches its completion, the pub posted a picture on Facebook showing it had been renamed ‘The Mucka Bup’.
‘Marty Coomber… you had one job!,’ the caption read.
The Mucka Pub took to Facebook to show off builder Rob Pollock’s prank of switching the venue’s name to ‘The Mucka Bup’
The Mucka Pub was struck by tragedy in August 2019 after the institution was gutted by a fire
Mr Coomber’s wife Christy said it took ten minutes for someone to stop and notice.
‘We didn’t expect it to get as much attention as it has. We’ve got heaps of great people who are supporting us from all over the country,’ Mrs Coomber told Daily Mail Australia.
Many users voiced their opinions on their love for the pub’s sign.
‘PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave it as the Mucka Bup,’ one said.
Another wrote: ‘Don’t correct it. It will become legendary and have even more people stopping.’
The pub began its rebuild in August 2020, one year after the devastating fire
The venue’s sign change has been well-received by the local community online with many asking owner Marty Coomber to keep the name as is
A third said patrons would read the sign correctly after when leaving the venue.
‘When the pub shuts and the patrons walk out, they will read it as PUB anyway.’
Mrs Coomber hinted that the pub’s name could stay.
There is a lot of love for the sign and people are begging us to keep it like it is, so maybe we will! We’ll see how we go after opening.’, said Mrs Coomber.
