Painting Mixup Leads To Sussex, Wisconsin’s Water Tower Reading “SEX” In Size 5 Billion Font

sussex wisconsin water tower mistake

You’re a contractor who specializes in painting water towers, AKA you work one job every fifty years, I assume. The night before one of your two lifetime assignments, you managed to get it in at the Motel 6. Congrats! You told the rest of the paint crew, and they, too, congratulated you. But you wanted more credit; you needed more credit. So you shot your shot.

From WKBW:

Residents of Sussex, Wisconsin are doing double takes after a paint job on the water tower was left undone Wednesday, leaving the word “sex” behind.

A contractor told WTMJ-TV that it wasn’t their initial intention to leave the tower in that state, but explained that workers ran into a venting issue, and had to stop the job in order to let the paint dry.

Sounds convincing enough, right? Get a load of the contractor who gave that quote and you’ll instantly switch over to the “yup, completely intentional” bandwagon (it’s much more fun over here, and we can’t wait to have you after you watch the below video.

Aside from his incredibly transparent ulterior motives (he clearly has an addiction to honks and road traffic), the best part of this video is our man shamelessly plugging his contracting company. This guy is my new Wisconsin hero, narrowly edging out Joseph Benedick, the made-up Wisconsin app entrepreneur I invented two years ago.

Apparently the script SEX is going to be covered up by the end of the day, but we’ll never forget about the real sex it represented. Nice.
