D.C. Sinkhole Provides Comic Relief For Weary Vatican Watchers


It's tough to imagine a news cycle more exciting than waiting for a gaggle of old men in white dresses who are quietly thinking about consensus (and decades-long organized coverups of global pedophilia rings operated by the Catholic Church), but a miracle has occurred in Washington, D.C., to turn our attention away from the Vatican: There is a sinkhole in the Adams Morgan neighborhood. We know, we know, How could anyone tell?

The reaction has been as fast as it has been snide.


Ha ha, you get it, because of fiscal socialism?! This was tweeted by a person who spends literally all her time thinking and blogging and tweeting about what happens in D.C. Let this be a lesson to our younger readers: Do what you love, not what you hate!


Sorry, Silvia, but that's the wrong sinkhole. Florida IS a sinkhole, amirite?

Can I make a stinkhole joke about Michelle Malkin?

I have tutoring tonight 2 blocks from the sinkhole, I am planning on going and checking it out!
Also, the AlertDC thing they sent out stated that the sinkhole was 25 ft deep, which I (and clearly many other people) read as 25 ft across, and therefore the photos on Prince of Petworth were anti-clamatic to say the least.

@cherrispryte I WENT AND WALKED BY THE SINKHOLE, AND THEY HAD A BIG WOOD FLAT OVER IT AND IT WAS THE MOST ANTICLIMATIC THING EVER.

But it was a nice walk and sunny and pretty out so not a total wash.

I just hope it's deep enough to provide adequate cover during a drive-by shooting, but no so deep that a drunken college student might fall to his death after a night out. (These are also things that happened in DC recently, am I doing this right?)

If some cigarette butts from 1998 come gurgling out in front of #1939 Biltmore, those are mine, and I apologize.
