Sinkhole forms in front of Mar-a-Lago; metaphors pour in
By Amy B Wang May 22

A large sinkhole has formed in front of Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach estate belonging to President Trump.

Town officials posted a run-of-the-mill advisory about the sinkhole Monday morning:

"A 4' x 4' sinkhole has formed on Southern Boulevard directly in front of Mar-a-Lago," the traffic alert read. "It appears to be in the vicinity of the newly installed water main. West Palm Beach Utilities distribution crews have secured the area and will most likely need to do some exploratory excavation today."

But where utility workers saw a repair project, the Internet saw a giant opening for metaphors.

Worth reading the rest just for the Twitter reaction!

BBC has video of the sinkhole: http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-canada-40013480/aerial-footage-of-sinkhole-at-trump-s-mar-a-lago-resort
