Hole Hearted

And Probably Half-Hearted As Well

Council workmen in Britain filled in only half of three huge potholes - as the other halves were not on council land. After the contractors left, residents were astonished to see that three of the potholes had been filled in only halfway across - because the boundary between the council land and housing association land runs straight through the holes.

FOOTNOTE: Land ahoy.
