What am I laughing at?
Nothing, actually (at least nothing connecting to this post). It’s a different ha-ha I’m talking about today.
A ha-ha is a type of a wall (keeping the theme here) that keeps livestock out but doesn’t ruin the view.
Heaton Park in Manchester has them and here I give you some pictures:
Naturally, the first question one asks is, how the hell did they get that name? From Wikipedia:
The unusual name “ha-ha” is thought to have stemmed from the exclamations of surprise by those coming across them as the walls were designed to be invisible.
It’s a good job those coming across weren’t swearing. Otherwise we’d have to call them fuck-where-did-this-come-from.
