CARACAS, VENEZUELA HAS HIRED 120 MIMES to help downtown traffic. According to Lauri Apple's article on JALOPNIK,
Mimes: What are they good for? Oh, so many things! They bring laughter and joy to everyone who encounters them. They help the white makeup industry stay financially afloat. Sometimes they make precious balloon animals. And most importantly, they know how to combat traffic in high-density urban areas, which is why Caracas, Venezuela has just unleashed 120 of them into the streets.
