Americans enjoy some of the greatest roads on earth. I live in Costa Rica the country with some of the worst road conditions on earth, I can sympathize with the folks in this video from Russia.

@Robert Gentel,
That would be hilarious, but for the poor souls behind the wheels.

@DrewDad,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakov_Smirnoff#Russian_reversal
Quote:
Russian reversal or "In Soviet Russia" is a type of joke originated by Arte Johnson on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and popularized by Smirnoff, and is an example of antimetabole. The general form of the "In Soviet Russia" joke is that the subject and objects of a statement are reversed, and “In Soviet Russia”, or something equivalent, is added. For example:

In America, you catch a cold.
In Soviet Russia, cold catches you!

Here are the kind of pothole that bothers me (I'm used to the smaller ones now).

When the pothole is wider than your car and hard to dodge it's bad enough, but when there's some dude fishing in it....
