Street Artist Draws Penises Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed More Quickly

A street artist from Greater Manchester, who goes by the name of Wanksy, has found a way to get his hometown's potholes fixed more quickly.

After his friends got injured by these potholes, the anonymous artist went around with a can of washable spray paint, and drew penises around potholes.

Wanksy said, “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.”

His temporary graffiti has successfully caught the attention of the city’s council, and potholes are usually fixed within 48 hours after the drawings are made—however, a spokesman of Bury, a town in Greater Manchester, found Wanksy’s action to be very insulting.
