Municipal Governments: The Same In Any Language

So a few weeks ago, the omnipresent municipal construction workers descend on the footbridge near my apartment to commence a new paint job. The paint started going up last week: an attractive shade of burgundy, quite fetching I thought, neither dull nor flashy. It brightened up the whole street.

Little did I know, that was just the base coat. The real paint went up today: a stunningly imaginative gun-metal grey. What is it about governments and boring?

And people wonder why I cheer on taggers.
