Unauthorized Hole

I spotted a new hole on my walk today and called the local authorities to report it. The Municipal Maintenance Bureau, the Parks Department, the Roads and Byways Division, the Civic Enhancements Group, even the Wartime Preparedness Committee all denied any knowledge of and any responsibility for the hole.

A couple of hours ago I told my story to an off-duty policeman in a bar. He didn't seem to think it very interesting.

"Off the record," he said, "it sounds to me like we're talking about an unauthorized hole. It happens all the time."
