Street "artist" Wanksy called attention to potholes in Manchester, England by drawing penises around them in non-permanent paint. Within a few days, they were repaired. Now that's a real pubic service.

Thanks for the penile pun, my dear niece Lindsay Tiemeyer. 3045488-slide-s-2-anonymous-activist-wanksy-gets

  1. Those roads certainly do look cocked up.

    Anyone trying that in the rust belt in the spring would run out of paint pretty quick.

  3. Thanks to our winters + heavy traffic Chicago uses a lot of salt, which trashes our roads, so we don't just get potholes, we get sink holes you can lose an axle in. The biggest one on my block had an upside down orange cone in it for about 8 months and once it was almost obliterated by being run over so many times, it graduated to a construction sawhorse guarding it instead. That's been 3 or 4 months now.

    BRB....need to run to the hardware store for a sec....

  4. I SEE NO DOUBLE-ENTENDRE PUNS IN THAT WALL OF TEXT YOU ERECTED WTF 

  5. Same in my city. There was a broken sewer pipe blasting smoking hot sewage into a local creek - it looked like heavy rains has washed out the dirty and the pipe cracked under the weight. It took five (5!!!) Calls to the city, two to the apartment complex owner that owned the land, talking with the repair truck twice. Finally they found it on a snowy day when they spotted the steam. I also got several calls demanding where I live, I assume for purposes of revenge.

    Raw sewage. In a major city. In a densely populated area.
