A Dublin café has gone viral for asking customers not to pay with “soggy bra money” during the heatwave.

Pip’s Café and Deli in Crumlin placed a sign in their window telling the public not to take cash out of their bras as the country basks in the heat this week.

The sign, which has gone viral after the business shared a photo to their social media channels, read: “Due to high tempetures [sic] we will not be accepting money out your bra!”

Paul McDonald, who owns Pip’s, said that people have gotten “a great laugh” out of the hilarious sign and stands by the message.

“When the hot weather came in, the girls noticed that there were a few ladies coming in that weren’t carrying purses and they were reaching to their bras for their money,” he told sundayworld.com.

“And the money was coming out soggy and the girls were just saying, ‘This isn’t nice. It isn’t pleasant.’

“It’s as bad as the fellas going down their jocks or their socks for the money.”

Paul continued: “So, we just had a little bit of banter about it, and we’d seen [a similar] sign before so we said we’d put it up and see how it goes.

“It’s been taken in the humour of which it’s meant, just a joking sense but at the same time, getting the message across.

“It’s getting a great laugh out of everyone that comes in and even the comments online.

“A lot of people are coming in and saying they’ve seen the poster; they think it’s gas... The only complaint has been the spelling of temperature.”

Pip’s Café and Deli is also home to the Breakfast Roll Challenge, where any confident customer can try their hand at finishing a 22-inch Parisian baguette filled with ten sausages, ten rashers, six eggs, and six hash browns in under 45 minutes.

If the brave competitor finishes the “absolutely huge" breakfast roll, Pip’s will donate money to charity.

Paul explained: “People are coming in and giving that a try. If they manage to eat it, we give €50 to a local charity which is the Men’s Shed in Crumlin, a charity that looks after men’s mental health.

“If the people don’t finish it, they give the €50 to the charity.

“We’re aiming to get €1,000 for the Men’s Shed,” he added.
