I'd lean towards Picasso. There is a variance between what you think it should look like and what is actually in front of you:

You'll be the first her eto know when I do the ancestry DNA test.

That is hard to say, I don't know if that would come up on a DNA test.

I just thought I'd re-quote this picture again of a fine American installation. Then we'll ask for a few people to post some fine American SER cable installations ... Looks more like entomology down there vs electricity.

Now I remember some tartan skirt wearing spaghetti-slinger , and a grass skirt wearing hairy toes flip-flop fanatic was trash talking our fine Canadian artwork! Hrrrrmmmph !

Where is that "fart in your general direction" icon.

Next panel I put in, I will mount sideways while singing O'Canada!


LOL

I call em how I see em!

Don't blame this abortion on a whole country, when the installer may have just been delusional at the time of install. He thought it was moving in the wind I guess and wanted to lock it down!


That Canadina job was ugly, yeah this one beats it hands down.

Both installations are ugly and sideways weatherheads just look dumb.

We do that in Canada so it matches the panel.


I agree though, I hate the "limp" weatherhead look.
