Harry: So this is the list of winners and losers, and the model photos. Which do you think won?
Udge: Well, G already told me that the winners were all groups of little pseudo-houses, so ...
(Looks at the models, considers carefully.)
Udge (pointing): Not this, but either this one or that.
Harry (grinning): Why "not this?"
Udge: Because it's ugly as shit.
Harry: That was the winner.
Udge: Bah.

Astonishing how many people seem to have been born without an aesthetic sense. Or is it drilled out of them by their years in hideous schools? Someone should do a study about that... It's actually slightly better (out here) than it was thirty years ago, when absolutely everything going up seemed to be ugly, but I still often pause in helpless wonderment. Surely somebody, at some stage of the process, should have noticed that this thing was going to be an eyesore?

Must be a public works project, for some reason politicians seem to have no artistic or beauty sense at all.
