The 10 best memes from the Asheville Sinkhole Group

ICYMI, a sinkhole that opened at 1010 Merrimon Ave. in June has been getting a lot of press. The fault lies in a culverted (piped) stream underneath the privately-owned parking lot, and despite being filled in, it’s been slowly and steadily growing in front of a (fortunately) empty building between two shopping centers. The Asheville sinkhole has caused some serious issues – like a huge build-up of sediment in the nearby Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary – so to combat the stress of the situation, a troupe of wily Facebookers created the Asheville Sinkhole Group (also known as the Asheville Sinkhole Society) as a good-humored way to keep up with news and make the most out of a deepening situation. And the admin of the page is, of course, the sinkhole itself.

New materials for permanent repairs have arrived to remedy this un-holey situation, but even after the sinkhole is long gone, we’re betting you won’t have to dig too hard to find these high-quality memes. Props to our creative community for their humor + visual skills.
