This Guy Draws Penises And Vaginas Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed Quickly
A street artist from Manchester, England is helping local residents get potholes fixed as quickly as possible. City officials are quick to act when they find giant penises and vaginas drawn around the holes in the road.
The street artist who calls himself ‘Wanksy’ appears to be providing a valuable service. Not only does he borrow his name from the famous street artist Banksy, but his penis and vagina drawings are forcing city officials to fix the potholes in record time.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News about his strategy to get the roads fixed, Wanksy explains:
“I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus. It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.”
Wanksy has even started a Facebook page where he shares his most recently pothole “fixes.”
Not everyone finds the pothole penises and vaginas to be funny. A council spokesman told the Evening News:
“Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school?
Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counterproductive. Every penny that we have to spend cleaning off this graffiti is a penny less that we have to spend on actually repairing the potholes.”
Sure the city is spending more time and money but the potholes are reportedly being fixed in record time.
