City Council's Tweet About A Pothole Is Laughably Ridiculous—And Twitter Is All Over It

City Council's Tweet About A Pothole Is Laughably Ridiculous—And Twitter Is All Over It
Updated 2 months ago

Inspector Darren certainly had his work cut out for him and it wasn't going well. 

In an attempt to soothe public concerns over potholes, the Cheshire West and Chester City Council in the UK sent Darren out to measure a pothole. Using a level and a ruler Darren set out to ease everyone's mind. It failed spectacularly, and Twitter loved every moment. 

Cheshire West's original tweet was deleted but here is a screenshot:

The council posted the photo to show the pothole was under 50mm and therefore they would not be fixing it right away. 

People immediately noticed that Darren's measuring technique was a little off. 

This was the moment for the council to say, "Perhaps you are right. We will measure again." 

But noooo...Instead they tweeted:

That's all it took for Twitter to let loose:

And that was just the beginning. 

Soon Darren and his measuring stick were the latest meme. 

It seems Darren is now an internet celebrity and people can't get enough.

It was good to see Darren didn't let all this fame go to his head. 

He was back at work.

It's possible Darren's fame is getting a bit out of control.

If we know Darren, he'll show up again to defend us against those pesky potholes.
