“Welcome to Atlanta where the playas play and the highways collapse like every day.”
That’s just one way Atlantans have been describing their home city following a series of seriously unfortunate infrastructure fails.
The latest disaster? A sinkhole shut down a popular street in Midtown Wednesday afternoon.

Some are even putting the blame on the Falcons’ Super Bowl loss.
Here are some hilarious (and depressing) reactions:
