Street Artist "W*nksy" Is Getting Potholes Fixed With The Help Of Huge Penises
Remember when you were in class and someone would draw a big comedy penis on one of your books and you’d end up having to get a new one? Well that’s happening to the Bury council… with roads.
That’s right. A mystery street artist has been roaming the streets of Bury, Greater Manchester, and drawing huge penises around any potholes he finds in an effort to get them covered up by the council.
He goes by the name of W*nksy. Get it? You know, like Bansky but…. ah forget it.
‘I wanted to attract attention to the potholes and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus,’ He said.
‘It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem. It seems to be working, judging from the Facebook fan page.’
A spokesman from the local council had this to say:
‘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!’
Whilst some of the penis potholes have been covered up, many remain untouched.
So, what do you think? Childish and inappropriate or innovative necessary? Let us know in the comments!
