What caught the biker's attention was a dead raccoon in the middle of Franklin Street. Not that unusual - except that this racoon raccoon had been painted over by a road crew.

Sorry, pet pave.

From TFA:

"But with the amount of congestion Thursday, the squirrelly geometry of the road and the size of equipment, they couldn't turn around to go back and fix the mistake."

Ambrosini said a foreman vehicle usually travels in front of or behind the painting vehicle to clean up or move any obstructions.
The paint crew saw the dead critter, he said. But it was too late to stop the double yellow lines from running up the back of the raccoon.
He said that the problem occurs "pretty frequently."
"Painting the yellow lines over the existing lines is not easily done."

I don't know whether to laugh or to do something else.
