Dublin: 9°C Sunday 9 May 2021

Someone jumbled the letters around in this iconic sign, and now it's really rude

Quite easily done, actually.

All it required was removing the ‘D’ from ‘DOCKS’ and moving down the ‘C’ from ‘CANAL.

Several photos of the sign from several different angles indicate that the new configuration is the real deal. It’s already caused several double takes today.

DailyEdge.ie has asked Dublin City Council what the blazes is going on. We await their response.

In the meantime, if you’re responsible, get in touch in confidence. Messers.
