Our friends in England have come up with a great idea to fix potholes. Mashed potatoes. Well...not exactly.
A section of the highway in North Yorkshire was blocked in both directions this weekend after a truck spilled its load of instant mashed potato mix. The Pressâ€”which reports that freezing chemicals used to lift the mash did not work, so high powered hoses had to be used insteadâ€”spoke to a police officer who said, "Instant mash is covering the road and cars have skidded as a result of the mash swelling up."
