An image of 6-foot-5 cop knee-deep in a Flint-area pot hole is making the rounds online and giving us a laugh ahead of what's sure to be another infuriating drive home.

We're, of course, not laughing about the pothole, which is one of just thousands that have appeared across the state amid this week's thaw. Potholes can lead to costly car wrecks and actual deaths.



We're laughing at the captions below the Grand Blanc Township Police Department's post.

On Instagram, a friend captioned the scene "end of the rainbow."



Grand Blanc PD says on Facebook that McWain Road south of Baldwin Road, where the pothole lives, was closed for a time Friday before the Genesee County Road Commission made temporary repairs.
