A northern England ‘street artist’ going by the moniker Wanksy is shaming councils into road repairs by painting penises on pot holes. It seems to be showing signs of working too although Wanksy himself is conscious of some of the rushed repair jobs that he’s instigated. “To fix a pothole properly the council should cut a nice clean edge into the tarmac, fill it, roll it and seal it with hot tar.. Not just turn up and dump some tarmac in and roll it in.. At least they’re getting filled though.”, said Wanksy via his Facebook page.
Not everyone is a fan of the Diabolical Dick Doodler however. “Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counter-productive. 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!“, posted one critic.
