A little creativity and a birthday sign helped some residents in one Jackson, Mississippi get a bothersome pothole fixed.

The pothole was almost 5 feet deep and residents say it had been there for more than a year.

So they put up a balloon, and a sign wishing it a Happy Birthday.  The sign also noted two “little brother” potholes had popped up as well.

The sign went on to say that the city had been called more than 300 times to try and get it fixed but nothing had happened.

Well, it appears the birthday celebration did the trick, because city workers did end up filling in the pothole with dirt.

The two “little brother” potholes were also filled in with dirt.
