Difference in language

A funny thing happened here on the FOB recently. One of other units here needed a building painted. Since their unit is very busy with missions they decided it would be best if the Local National work crew painted it. So the gave them instructions to paint the building red and white like a lot of the other buildings around here. So the local work crew mixed the red and the white paint together and painted the building PINK! :) It is pretty funny driving down the road and seeing a big pink building. I am just glad it isn't one of my unit's buildings.

I can think of some good names for that building, but I won't say them here!
