The statue of the Duke of Wellington outside the Glasgow Museum of Modern Art in Glasgow, Scotland, with a traffic cone on his head. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The people of Glasgow have managed to convince the city council not to kill off a much-loved tradition. For years, locals have repeatedly placed a traffic cone on the Duke of Wellington’s head (on a statue of the Duke on his horse). The council complained that it cost £100 a time to have the cone removed and revealed plans to raise the statue to stop people from climbing up. The people responded by launching a petition, which gathered 10,613 signatures in less than 24 hours.
