Thanks, George! The silver ones DO look new and shiny, now that you mention it...

Elevators

They probably haven't finished painting yet!!

One of these things is not like the other...

...one of these things just doesn't belong. (I always think of that Sesame Street song when one odd duck stands out in any situation.)
