Good for him! 🙂

Pesky potholes have been known to stick around for years in some cities before crews are finally sent to repair them. Obscene graffiti, on the other hand, will often disappear as quickly as someone can phone in a complaint.

With this in mind, an anonymous U.K. artist who goes by the handle Wanksy began spray painting giant penis shapes around the potholes in his Greater Manchester town.

His goal? To attract the attention of local council and get the potholes fixed.

It appears as though his efforts are paying off.

The Evening News reports that within 48 hours of Wanksy’s first tagging session at the beginning of April, “many of the potholes” he’d drawn around the town of Bury had been filled.
