Whippoorwill American Cultural oddities (125* d) RE: American Cultural oddities 20 Apr 98

In the midwest we call them "borrow pits." Usually they're man-made ponds or lakes where dirt was "borrowed" to use as fill for a new roadway. When I was little I could never understand why they called it borrowing if they weren't going to put it back. Come to think of it, I still don't understand.
