You know things are bad when swans start joining the dole queue…
The CSO has today revealed that unemployment rose again for the month of June – the third successive increase. No wonder, when apparently even swans are signing on too.
The below shot was posted by Reddit user “Darraghd” to Reddit/Ireland this afternoon under the self-explanatory title “The swans in the dole queue – fantastic photo” and appears to show a flock (or a bevy, game, herd, team or wedge) of the birds swanning into a dole office like they own the place.
Check out the total indifference of the blighters in the full shot below:
Unfortunately we can’t tell exactly which dole office the swans turned up at, which is why we’re hoping that our JOE readers out there can fill in a few blanks for us.
Did you find yourself stuck behind a flock of swans collecting their Children of Lir/cygnet allowance this morning? Don’t be afraid about outing these beautiful yet surprisingly intimidating creatures, however, as they certainly can’t use the internet… yet.
