Pothole confident it will survive latest council tax increase

A POTHOLE is ‘100 percent certain’ an increase in council tax will have no effect on it whatsoever.

The pothole, which first appeared in 2002, laughed and said: “Who do you think you’re talking to?

“I have seen council tax increases come and go. The first couple of times I thought ‘oh well, it’s been good while it lasted’ but then I began to realise that I am immortal.

“I’m not sure if I’m actually a god, but it does feel as if I will be alive for as long as the universe exists. There is something to be said for being at the very bottom of the council’s to-do list.”

The pothole added: “Sometimes they put a cone on top of me, which I find very amusing. It’s like I’ve got a fancy hat.

“Then they take it away and put it on top of one of my friends.”
