Just in time for the Hanukkah season - inadvertant Nazi symbolism!


Gardeners hired by Melbourne City Council intended to arrange the purple and white pot plants into neat geometric shapes.

But they left six 3m garden beds along Swanston St displaying large Nazi symbols.

Vandals were initially believed to have rearranged the plants as a racist slur. But closer investigation showed gardeners had inadvertently used the pattern.

Seriously… how the hell do you INADVERTENTLY use the single most notorious symbol of hate in the world? SIX TIMES?
