The Pothole Chronicles

The infamous portal to the netherworld, otherwise known as a pothole located next to the property tax-free oasis on the Admiral Street in Kansas City, Mo has finally been dealt with. It has entered the fifth and final stage of the pothole life-cycle: the metal plate cover-up (other stages are: birth, neglect, warning sign, and barricade). The metal plate is a permanent stage and no further development is expected.

The plate is artfully decorated with custom lettering where the top line reads “K.C.W.D” and the the bottom line can only be read with a mirror.

To quote the musical Oklahoma:

Ev’rythin’s up to date in Kansas City
They’ve gone about as fur as they c’n go!

Update: Always resourceful Hyperblogal suggests putting clown cozies on the metal plates to brighten up our streets a little.
