    An Artist Is Drawing Penises Around Potholes To Draw Attention To Them

    He goes by Wanksy.

    Potholes are annoying. One ballsy artist from Greater Manchester, England — an area apparently riddled with potholes — wants to draw attention to the problem. So he draws penises around them.

    Naturally, the anonymous artist goes by Wanksy.

    "I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable," Wanksy told the Manchester Evening News. "Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus."

    He claims many of the potholes he graffitis are fixed within days.

    Some drivers appreciate Wanksy's handiwork.

    Requests to have him tackle specific cities — and even specific potholes — are pouring in.

    But not everyone is thrilled with Wanksy's civic strategy.
