Las Cortes / Los ReCortes

Here is an image of one of the many interventions on the signs of “Centros de Salud” (public health centers) in Madrid that critically comment on cuts on Spain’s public health-care.  This particular center serves the “Las Cortes” district, which houses the Spanish Parliament.  Depending on its gender, the word “cortes” may mean courts (fem) or cuts (masc).  The sign has been altered to read “Los ReCortes”:  “The (Budget) Cuts.”  The sign is also inhabited by one of Buruclin Borrasca’s square face stickers, Sloth (from the Goonies):
