If there are tentacles in a man hole, you're watching the wrong kind of anime.

I'm surprised no one has posted the answer I read once. Manhole covers are round because all other shapes can be positioned so the cover could potentially fall down into the hole. Wikipedia has a nice collection of answers too, as well as square hole covers that the monsters in question might like.

my answer when I was asked this question...

because people are round!

surprisingly enough, I actually got that job. not so surprising, I no longer have that job.

Duh! I mean, it is also to prevent the Triangle monsters from getting out... but those square ones are the worst!

Actually triangles work too. I believe that's all they have in Bennington, VT. Matter of trivially...

Congrats on the print. Wish I could pick one up right now but gotta save a little bit right now, bummer. Let's hope it stays up for sale for a while. Great job.

Thanks everyone for the votes and comments! I hope you enjoy my manhole. ;)

Heh. I was hoping someone would mention this. A friend of mine had figured it out and has been waiting for years to give his answer in an interview.

Why are manholes round?

Because they aren't triangles.

Two things...

What does this have to do with job interviews?

And the second line of text (to prevent the escape of square shaped monsters) kind of ruins it for me...like when you have to explain jokes to your slow friends...

woot changed my signature...apparently linking my old blog was "advertising"...never thought I'd see anyone give Obama a run for his money on being the nanny state...

Congrats on the Win, Chris! It's the awesome lighting that makes this one for me.
Excuse me, now I have to go back to my job where they don't have enough imagination to ask inane trivia questions in interviews. Disliking that fact is my greatest strength, by the way.

Through the toilets while they were still young, of course!

Actually that was stated about three posts into this thread.

Glad to see a brown shirt. I like brown shirts. Fail to see how this really fit the theme though.

Having not heard this question before I was confused but laughing regardless, cause it's just funny.

I knew a guy who would make his prospective employees use a click-clacker (one of those plastic-handled things with two balls that swing around it) during the interview to see if they could make it uh, click-clack. Must be tough to get shot down by a children's toy.

I wish this shirt had been done on either black or charcoal, I think the design would have had a lot more 'pop' to it and it also would have given a better impression of a man-hole cover being set in the road/street. Superb artwork nevertheless!

I can't help but feel this shirt would have fit better with #144.

Reminds me of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

Boy howdy, these newfangled transportation methods are really something. Just found out the shirt I ordered on May 25 is finally scheduled for delivery on June 24! Why, as little as 82 years ago it would have taken at least 3 days longer to get my shirt!

Really? Far better shirts?

Newp.

The perfectionist one was good, I'm going to pass on it because I'm more of a "Bare minimum" kind of guy. The rest of shirts were mostly just horrible text shirts.

Oh, and a Napoleon Dynamite shirt... I got sick of ND References about 6 months after the DVD came out and EVERYBODY decided they loved it and was the most quotable movie ever.

A "Hire Pedro" shirt would of been better. Damn... wish I would of though of that before just now. (Unless somebody else did submit that idea)
