Eddie Prosser, a Jackson Mississippi resident decided the only way to get City Hall’s attention to fix the obstruction of traffic, was to throw a birthday party for the pothole.
There were balloons and a giant card reading “Happy birthday, Pothole! I’ve been here for over a year!”

To drive the point home, the sign also says “I’ve been here for over a year!”
“I do find our problems in the city of Jackson serious, but at the same time, it’s just one small pothole,” he said. “When they fix the potholes just a block away, it wouldn’t have taken another 10 minutes [to fix this one].”
The city finally caved in, and filled the hole. Will they pave it before its second birthday?
