Anonymous activist has a 'unique' way to get potholes fixed (potentially NSFW)

Like many cities, Manchester, England, is plagued with potholes. One half-mile stretch of road can have as many as 70 holes. After claiming he saw his friends injured in pothole-related bike accidents, one anonymous resident has taken matters into his own hands.

He goes by Wanksy. And using what appears to be an industrial level chalk, he draws penises around the potholes, creating moments of visual terrorism that the city can’t ignore. Really. Because according to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), within 48 hours of Wanksy’s efforts, many of Manchester’s problematic potholes, which had been a nuisance for years, were filled. Within a week, even more were fixed.

...Wanksy is already developing a fanbase in the U.S. "We need you in Madison, Wisconsin aka pothole hell," writes Matthew Schmock on the Wanksy Facebook fan page.


Pictures @ link as well, so... Yeah.

Well, at least a bunch of dicks helped solve this issue.

Now if only the ones we have in congress can start doing something help for a change...
