Spices are awesome. You can take a totally bland, boring bowl of runny snot, and make it into something tasty with a prudent selection of spices.
Evidently, some real estate developers are now taking this approach to their spruce up their fecal smörgåsbord.
Behold Ginger Fields, a shiny new housing development, just outside of Mechanicsburg.
Amazingly, those are the actual street names. Turmeric, Cardamom, Ginger, and Thyme.
I wonder what sort of blandness these people are trying to liven up with those spicy name… Let’s go see, shall we?
After a short ride, we arrive at the grand entrance. Note the lovely beige house.
Surely, not every house in the development would sport so unimaginative a color pallet?
Well, let’s just see what’s around the corner…
Wow! It’s a horror show! If it weren’t bad enough that every house is the same color, every house is the same BEIGE color.
Whatever. Slapping exotic-sounding labels on the streets of your brand-name, all-beige suburb does not make it exotic, unique or interesting. It’s just a sad, pathetic, attempt to polish this turd of a neighborhood.
Anyhow, after I had my fill of these banana-republic mass-produced bullshit people, I rode out into the remaining farmland, where I regained my composure.
I’m going to the woods tomorrow. I’m afraid I’ll loose my Buddha-nature if I stay in the suburbs for Earth Day.
