The Texas Sinkhole Revisited

About a year ago I posted several pointless rants about the new Cowboys stadium, how taxpayers were taking the risk while Jerry Jones took the profits, and how the stadium would be a net loss for the City Of Arlington.
At about the same time, a massive sinkhole opened up someplace in Texas. The earth actually opened, and started sucking in trees, houses, lakes, etc.
I posted a comparison between the two, complete with a picture of the stadium construction. It got passed around and emailed a lot, people got some giggles out of it, and then it died.

Now check this out. You know those encyclopedia-type articles you can find all over the internet, the ones that rely on Flickr, Google Image tags, etc. for their pictures?

Go here. Look at the section "Images Of The Texas Sinkhole".
A picture is worth a thousand words.

That's funny. In the middle of half-a-dozen pictures of the natural sinkhole, sits a picture of the stadium. Does anyone ever edit?
Thanks for the light-hearted chuckle.

I don't know why I get such a kick out of things like that.
