That's gross. Mike Rowe wouldn't even take on that job.

I shudder to think what their mold, mildew, and fungus counts must be like...not to mention what it would cost to even start cleaning out the sludge and the decades of "name this object that fell off a tourist/out of a boat" embedded in what looks like some exceptionally silty, gooey, smelly mud! Knowing human nature, I'm kinda surprised no one's out there with metal detectors looking for lost jewelry or antiquities.

I like Venice, but the last time I was there, about 12 years ago, it was pretty smelly. And there was dog shit everywhere. They didn't pick up after their dogs. It made me realize how good Americans are on that issue.

David Sedaris talks about, in one of his books, a bunch of French people speculating about the contents of a small plastic bag being carried by Jennifer Aniston as seen in a paparazzi photo of her walking her dog. When Sedaris explains that it has her dog's shit in it, they completely disbelieve him, because why on earth would anyone do that?

They don't even know how to spell "gondola."

Yeah, and I bet they don't even have the common courtesy of speaking English.

Whoops, it is spelled two ways in the top pic.

Not in 24-hour military time.
