    The correct answer is "Because they'd look silly with four inches". That was the first rude joke I ever heard, just a few days shy of my thirtieth birthday. I'd led a sheltered life until then. And now, ten years later, I know about a dozen rude jokes.

    2. They are esthetically pleasing. Square covers were popular in the renaissance, but romanticism eventually required more sensuality, more style, more imagination. What could be more imaginative and romantic and exciting than a round manhole cover?
