The original message, seen above, was reposted by at least 19 other Twitter users as of Thursday afternoon. One user playfully responded by asking the department to make a swift repair before Jesus returns.
The official Twitter account of the District of Columbia’s Department of Transportation.
“Sorry, we will no longer be able to fill your potholes after Saturday,” read one Tweet posted on the agency’s account at about 1 p.m. Thursday.
Minutes later, someone with access to the agency’s account posted: “I guess I should have been a little less subtle. I was kidding. Or was I?”
Well, it took MSM FIVE days to catch up to us here! ~JP

‘Rapture’ Prediction Brings Wide-Ranging Response
:: Judgment Day on May 21st? ::
We picked up a pamphlet in Union Square to see why so many people are talking about the world ending on May 21, 2011.
It turns out the theory comes down to two numerological proofs.
The first proof is based on Genesis 7:4, when God said to Noah: “Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
When God referred to seven days, he meant both seven days and seven thousand years, because “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The flood occurred in 4990 BC. Seven thousand years later is 2011.
The second proof looks at the significance of the number of days between the Crucifixion and May 21, 2011.
There are 722,500 days between these dates. 722,500 is a significant number because it is composed of the significant numbers 5x10x17x5x10x17. Five signifies redemption; ten signifies completion; and 17 signifies heaven. The numbers represent the day of redemption (5) and the Christian era (10) and the ascent to heaven (17) — and these factors are doubled for added significance.
We’ll know for sure in 27 days.
