People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it…
After yet another cyclist was injured due to a pothole, Wanksy, an artist from Greater Manchester, England, decided it was time to do something about it.
So what was his way of drawing immediate attention to the countless potholes in his city? Draw penises around them, of course!
“People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it,” Wanksy said in an interview. “Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed.”
A Bury Council spokesman, however, disagreed with Wanksy’s reasoning:
“Painting obscenities around potholes will not get them repaired any quicker, but simply waste valuable time and resources.”
But when Wanksy used washable paint to draw penises around potholes in his neighborhood, he found they were suddenly repaired in 48 hours.
We are ever so grateful for these headlines
There are other ways of grabbing the government’s attention
You can go online and fill out a short form to report a pothole. The “draw a penis method” seems way more fun, though.
