This is why we love our fans! Not only are they the BEST FANS IN THE WORLD (golf clap) but they’re Jagoff Catchers too..always watching out for blog topics!
This scenario occurred in Johnstown (go Mountain Cats!) No! It’s not a faked Photoshop thing.
A PennDot crew was painting new lines on the road (lines for Jagoffs to ignore). And so it goes, the PennDot crew did not have enough time to stop the painting process and…let’s just say there was a bump in the road (for the full story click here).
Well PennDot was quick to cover up their tracks (badoomp tisshh). An engineer from PennDot said that a foreman vehicle usually travels in front of the painting vehicle and clears obstructions from the road. The foreman vehicle wasn’t there that day which resulted in Rocky Raccoon getting a little more than a mani and a pedi.
If this doesn’t scream Bambi Spinoff, we don’t know what does? But the pic is certainly a SPOILER ALERT on that movie!
Here’s what WE think…the PennDot crew did Rocky Raccoon a favor since the Steelers were playing last night. They basically painted him like one of those 55 year-old guys that go shirtless and paint their faces and guts with black and gold paint then try and get on TV. Other than being squashed, he looks GREAT!
Finally, if you read the story, you saw that the line-painting crew said they’re working on fixing the problem (the post Rocky removal gap in the paint line) but it’s hard to put paint on already painted lines. HUH? Do we not have a proby line-painter that we can put in one of those yellow vests, and can walk out there for 5 minutes with a can of paint and a brush to do some touch-up work… of course after another proby removes Rocky’s skeletal remains with a shovel.
Do ya think the foreman vehicle goes with these guys when they’re off the clock? If they can’t see an animal on the road when they’re working, what do they do when they’re driving home!?!?! Come on guys I know it may be hard to see since it’s not a giant traffic cone…but a raccoon!?!?! You painted a raccoon??
Good try on the ol’ “Supervisor wasn’t there to help us so we ran over the raccoon” excuse! How about this.. the next time your seeing-eye-supervisor calls off, please call off the line painting. Cuz the next time it might little Amy or Johnny riding their bikes in the middle of the road and, without a foreman to yell “HALT,” we wold hate to see THEM get a set of racing stripes, Ya Jagoffs!
