Destructive and childish or Creative and awesome?

To sum it up, this guy got tired of all the pot holes around his town so he started spray painting (with washable spray paint) penises around them. People were calling them in and they got fixed.

I for one think it is awesome, what do you think?

hmmm wonder if that would work around here....I don't see the harm in it, especially as he uses washable paint. I think it is interesting that the town's response is: “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.”  when you look at the pictures of the ones that were repaired...they didn't try and wash off the paint at all, just poured over top.

The name "Wanksy" won me over.

We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

And don't forget about the children! As they mentioned, poor, innocent children may see...parts of the human body. Horrifying!
