City of Detroit produced a lookup tables for its absentee precincts in 2016. It's in Excel. But wait for it: the values are CLIP ART.

This is definitely a real file. For those wondering, if you save this file as CSV the clip art images get lost in the process.

It's a lookup table with lookup values that disappear as a CSV? 🙀

Like how is this not much more work? Is it because they couldn't figure out how to group multiple precincts except with clip art?

That's not incompetence. It requires way more skill to insert clip art into an Excel cell than to type in a number. It's something else.

We are quickly rushing towards a future where there is such minimal literacy to the digital reality that I fear for the future.
