Smart Thinking: Street Artist Spraypaints Years-Old Potholes With Penises, They Get Repaired Immediately

April 29, 2015


A street artist going by the name Wanksy started spraypainting problematic potholes in Manchester, England with crude penises, and the majority were repaired within 48 hours, and even more within the week. That is how you GET THINGS DONE. Wanksy says the inspiration for his road wieners came(!) after a friend was injured on his bicycle due to a pothole. Wanksy also says the paint that he uses isn't permanent, and washes away in a couple weeks, leaving repaired potholes peen-free. Obviously, I'm going to go out tonight and spraypaint penises on every pothole I see. And wall. And...basically every surface. Eventually, the area around my apartment building will be known as Penistown, and I will be elected mayor AND president of the neighborhood watch.

Keep going for a coupe more pothole peens of all shapes and sizes.






Thanks to ThomasTheTank, who doesn't even feel potholes when he runs over them because he's a f***ing tank.

    This is one of the funniest stories I've seen on here lately. The sheer genius and craziness of this stunt had me laughing hysterically.

  • Daniel L Charlebois

    They did this on The League.

  • Andrew Varley

    There's already somewhere called penistone in south Yorkshire

  • Girgear

    Wanksy! Genius!

  • Sebastiann Elegant√© Neely

    Definitely has more artistic merit than Banksy.

  • MustacheHam

    hmm...If I didn't know any better that "Wanksy" (2nd photo from bottom) is perhaps a spoof of Banksy. It's not really that funny. :\

  • AdvancePlays

    It is, in fact, incredibly funny. It combines both classic toilet humour and innovative wit, elevating its jocular status to a deeply amusing level.

    Deeply something all right...

    Ohh man that's deep.

    Potholes.. HA!.. those are smooth luxury roads compared to where I'm from.. We don't have "roads".. we have "the path of pot holes"

    If it isn't at least 6 inches+ deep, they don't even acknowledge there's an issue.

  • GeneralDisorder

    What? You live in Pittsburgh or something?

    People love exaggerating.

  • KLanD

    Ya.. I should have said 8 inches..

  • TheQiwiMan

    If only all of life's problems would go away by drawing penises on them.

    (I'll definitely be drawing penises all over my student loan checks from now on tho. Worth a shot!)

  • Meh

    Alright this is a start. I'll be standing by for Blair with a crude phallus on his face.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Cool, but I doubt it would work here...

  • Foldedpencil

    Where is "here?"

  • event

    Here is here man.
