....Is a pothole a whole hole or is it a half hole?

 I think yours are the other ends of some of ours, so you get half- we get half (more or less)

...wonder does it also apply to potholes, they seem to be stockpiling them

Wikipedia says:
A gonad or sex gland or reproductive gland is a mixed gland that produces the gametes (sex cells) and sex hormones of an organism. In the female of the species the reproductive cells are the egg cells, and in the male the reproductive cells are the sperm. The male gonad, the testicle, produces sperm in the form of spermatozoa. The female gonad, the ovary, produces egg cells. Both of these gametes, are haploid germ cells.

Blizzard in Plymouth again on Sunday - and our poor tortoise disappeared into his hut again for a couple of days to shiver. I blame Putin, it's some sort of sneaky warfare he's conducting! But sunshine here yesterday and today and this morning I was able to go for pleasant run on the GF with my wife on pillion *smile*.

Very nice pub - frequented by none other than the Queen, who lives round the corner at Sandringham.

We are very lucky here in Norfolk we have some lovely villages with fantastic pubs, and the TERRIBLE road network keep outsiders away! Get off my land!
