This is what a real hero looks like, ladies and gentlemen. Also, if you want to get some real things accomplished in your community, this might be the answer to all of your problems.
In some of the places I’ve lived or worked for long stretches at a time, the pothole situation is totally out of control. I think the worst I’ve seen is in New Orleans. A quick drive to the grocery store was like dodging landmines.
People in Middlesbrough, England, became incredibly fed up when their city council persisted in doing nothing to address a bad pothole problem that had plagued the area for about a year.
It took a local hero to tackle the issue. Someone spray painted huge…ahem, dicks, around the potholes, and they were then filled in within a number of days.
“The power of the willy”, as one resident said.
The City Council claimed that they were already planning to fix the unsightly potholes before the dicks magically appeared on the street. A spokesperson for the council said,
“Middlesbrough, like all local authority areas in the country, has issues with potholes and repairs are carried out on a priority basis determined by the risk they pose to highway users. Currently, however, we are carrying out pre-planned works in the Acklam area and staff were able to visit the nearby site on Fane Grove when the matter was reported to us and have patched over the hole.”
I think it’s safe to say that this unknown crusader is now and will forever be a local legend.
Got a problem? Draw a dick on it! It actually works!
