Doofus Of The Day #694

Today's award goes to the Central Bank of Ireland.  The Telegraph reports:

Ireland's central bank has made an embarrassing error on a limited edition €10 silver coin it released on Wednesday.

The special coin features a picture of Irish writer James Joyce, along with a quote from his epic novel Ulysses. However, the central bank has incorrectly reprinted the passage of text.

There's more at the link.

How embarrassing is that?  To misquote your country's premier wordsmith in so indelible a fashion!  Oh, well - the Euro's a joke at present, so I suppose this was simply a poor Joyce of words . . .
