Vonnie Daykin in Nottinghamshire, U.K., has reported a pothole that appeared a couple years ago to the city, but they say it's not big enough to fix. So she celebrated its second birthday, with cake.

A woman named Vonnie Daykin was reporting the thing a number of times, but authorities say it's not big enough to warrant fixing. Vonnie decided the pothole is big enough, however, for a snarky birthday party. She posted a photo of the pothole with a chocolate cake next to it, complete with two candles. It's MORNING EDITION.
