I wonder how long it will be before someone arrives in the night with an excavator and digs it out again?

Isn't there an industry in W. Africa, making coffins in odd shapes such as cars and such?

I can think of a certain American politician who deserves a similar ironic fate.

With rivers and lagoons dry for a year new paths across flood plains appeared. Previously inaccessible islands on foot were farmed. Now the water is back bridges are required. This footbridge has just been constructed by locals up in the Delta. I would think that any intelligent croc will be waiting just down stream.
