Happy April Fools’ Day! Although “Operation Pothole” actually seems like a good idea, this is a completely phony story.
Bonus points to any readers who noticed:
- “Operation Pothole” is a clever pun we can’t take all the credit for.
- “Project spokesperson Bill Nelson” is just another name for Willie Nelson.
- Nelson’s quote contains the name of two hit Willie Nelson songs: 1980’s “On the Road Again” and his 1982 cover of “Always on My Mind.”
