What The...?

Have you ever seen something in passing, only to stop and think 'What the...?'

I've been having 'What the...?' moments ALL week, about 5 times a day, from the same thing.

This week, I am in class on the World's Busiest Air Base. The base is an international melting pot, with all countries belonging to the world's biggest gang (NATO) represented. The base itself is pretty much a cash cow, with umpty fazillion dollars flowing EVERY day.

One of the newer buildings is a much needed Teen Center. After school, the middle and high school kids go to the center to do 'homework' and hang out with their friends. It took a lot of time and about a kazillion dollars to get the much needed center up and running.

My class is held in the conference room of this new building. In front of the building is a bench, the reason for my 'What the...?' moments I've been having this week.

Here's the bench...What do you see? Look closer...I know you see it!

WHAT THE...?

Who authorized the purchase of a bench supported by stone penises... in front of the multi jazillion dollar, state of the art Teen Center? I should add that it sits facing one of the busiest streets on the base.

Someone didn't just go out and buy this bench. A lot of important folks had to sign off on purchase orders, contracts and any other paperwork needed to legally spend Uncle LeRoy's money. They HAD to do this on purpose! Why do I think this, you ask? Because it's the only bench in front of the building!!!

Since the bench is right in front of the entrance, I will continue to have 'What the...?' moments until about 1600 (that's 4pm for all you 'normal' folk) on Friday.
