Never mind the bollocks bollards

Downtown bollards mysteriously painted blue

It isn’t yet clear how the two bollards on two corners of Kirkwood Avenue and Walnut Street became blue.

The two 1,400-pound concrete balls were installed in May 2008. One was painted green and the other was purple.

[...]
The bollards were due to be repainted, said city public Works director Susie Johnson. She said city staff had been asked to order new green and purple paint for a pre-graduation weekend touch up.
So let me get this straight, (not to be hard on the scum that coated these balls blue, they did show some spunk), but why didn't the staff of the city realize their balls were flaking until the parents came?

This has been a pubic service announcement.
