Duke of Wellington - with traffic cone as hat



DescriptionRatingInfo
For the past 20 years or so the Duke of Wellington statue has been the focal point of late night pranksters who climb the 160-year-old statue to top it with a traffic cone according Andy Cumbo, a Glasgow native who works as a chef at a restaurant nearby the statue. “Sometimes after a couple of drinks on my way home I put [the cone] back up!” Cumbo said. Locals believe that the cone represents the city’s sense of humor and ability to not take authority too seriously. To them the cones on the statue are just as important as any of the other monuments and buildings in Glasgow. http://lyndseymatthews.wordpress.com/2007/11/14/coned-the-duke-of-wellington-statue-in-glasgow/
