On June 30, officials in the city of Qingdao formally opened the Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge (青岛胶州湾大桥), the world’s longest sea bridge, for traffic. But many drivers noted to their dismay that some of the safety railings lining the side of the bridge had not been installed, or screws had not been tightened properly. In this animated cartoon, posted by artist Cao Yi (曹一) to his QQ blog, a grinning official holds a commemorative plaque and ribbon to celebrate the grand opening of a bridge project, not-so-discretely tapping in a few remaining safety rails on the clearly unfinished project.
