Now Shock-Politics Nudity Is Used To Draw Attention To... Potholes In Streets
— Ace

I'll be shocked when the left doesn't strip off it's clothes as a protest against this or that.

PEOPLE in a small town in western Canada are so fed up with the rotten state of their main road that they came up with an unusual form of protest - a calendar that shows them posing nude in the potholes.

One inhabitant of Leader, Saskatchewan, is shown sitting in a canoe that is perched in a pothole.

Another has his dignity preserved by a well-placed camera while a third man covers up with a strategic hubcap.

"The initial impression when people open the calendar for the first time is 'Oh my God!' It's pretty dramatic," said Wayne Elhard, the local MP.

Leader, a town of just 1000 in a largely farming area of southwest Saskatchewan, says it can't afford to fix all its roads.

Thanks to PetiteDov.

1 You know, with the amount of time these people spent getting naked and producing this calendar, they could have gotten out there with a shovel and filled in a few potholes.

But Canadians are socialists, so i guess it's all about getting the government to do it for you.

3 Massachusetts solved this problem long ago.

You place an orange barrel in each hole. As the barrels wear out or get destroyed/stolen, place a new barrel in the hole.

4 A guy in my hometown had a better solution. He planted a tree sapling in the pothole. Nothing like having a tree growing in the middle of the street to get the officals' attention.

5 True fact: Canadians, by Darwinian design, have an extra layer of oily, water-resistant body hair.

This additional coat also accounts for their musky scent.
