Fire!

Pere at Saragatona has photographed a building with two texts carved on its front, the first of which reads,

CHARITY ENNOBLES
LABOUR DIGNIFIES

Graffiti in Barcelona’s Sans/Sants district expresses a different point of view:

Labour doesn’t dignify, fire does

I can’t remember which (piss-)artist it was who said that if Madrid’s Prado museum were burning down, he would save the fire.
