C&C Government Factory

I can't be the only one who thinks of Everybody Dance Now when I see a government vehicle.  Unlike certain other states, Hawai'i does not have forty billion license plate types.  The first three characters denote the service or organization or government whatever.  With the exception of the Honolulu Police Department (their plates start with HPD) and the Honolulu Fire Department (their plates start with HFD), pretty much all government vehicles have the first three characters on their plates as C&C, meaning City & County of Honolulu.  Sometimes it's on the side of the vehicle.  The lifeguard trucks say C&C LIFEGUARD on the side.  I want to get some letters and add FACTORY after it one day, but I don't think anyone else would get it.  Maybe xkcd can help me out.  Seems obscure enough for them to jump in.


Anyways, C&C Government Factory has been spending the day destroying our street to replace the water pipes.  I'm ok with new pipes, but since I work from home, this is becoming a noise problem.  They have been running a diesel powered walk-behind vertical circular saw that moves at about 0.000000000000000000001 m/s and makes the worst sound in the world.  I would close the windows, but then it would get to hot.  It's easier to blog and complain.
