Road Work, Oh Joy

Spotted along Rock Creek Parkway at Virginia Ave NW in Foggy Bottom, this electronic sign warns of impending Constitution Ave. road work, adding “OH JOY” to the projected start date of April 11th. Is this a hacker at work, or just a sarcastic DDOT/NPS electronic road sign copywriter? Either way, it was funny.

Update: No joy. :’-(

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
