What Could Possibly Go Wrong? (Follow-up)

Yes, that's an extension ladder resting on a plank suspended between a parapet and a scaffold tower, about 30 feet off the ground. We swear, they're just doing this to make us write about them.

But hey, credit where it's due. Since we're always pointing out how wretchedly inefficient the Mexican workforce can be, we're proud to report that two guys, using buckets and paintbrushes, did the entire front of the church in like a day and a half. It was amazing. And then, because it's Mexico, they repainted it four times over the next two weeks, just to keep the project behind schedule.

We want to know if they got their training from Marty considering his prior work on Trinity Church in Boston

Marty never did anything as crazy as these guys. The Mexicans win hands down.
