Morons of the Day: Feuding Mayors

It is a little known fact that the City of Milwaukee actually used to be three distinct cities.  Of those three, two were rather large, separated by a river and the mayors hated each other.  Why, they hated each other so much they actually started a shooting war.

Now, if you've ever been to Milwaukee, you'll notice that all of the bridges across the Milwaukee River seem to go at an angle as they cross.  This is because the mayors of the feuding cities made sure their streets didn't line up.  Fucking brilliant!  Also, it was reported that one of the founding fathers would sell maps of the area without the other cities on it to keep the immigrants in his little town.

Looks like the spirit of cooperation is alive and well in Paris:

Two feuding mayors have taken their anger to the streets by declaring the same road one way - but in opposite directions.

Awesome.
