Graffiti

Here's a little story for you all.

Waiting for the train to take me to school this morning, I walk over to a bench I usually don't sit on. The first thing I see is that someone had written on it with a sharpie. And, because these types of things always prove to be hilariously idiotic, I decided to read them.

These did not disappoint. In fact, I didn't get much past the first one. Which read: "Your in America speak ENGLISH"

...ah the irony...

Anyway, have any ridiculous things you've seen scribbled around? There's a station not that far from my house that has the Fundemental Theorem of Calculus scribbled on the wall.

For some reason, there used to be some guy (or guys) who kept writing the phrase "ALF IS GOD" in every restroom in every supermarket near the area I live.

I'm not sure why they did that, nor am I quite sure why an alien puppet from a derivative show in the 1980's should be considered a deity.

I'm sure there are more interesting ones I've seen, but I can't think of any right now.

The only thing I can think of was an underpass that's in downtown Tucson. There are like 10 pillars you walk past and every single one had "FUC" written on it (and it didn't look like kids handwriting). You'd think after the first few you'd get the spelling right. . .

I guess it could have been their intials, but I doubt it.

Wow, people never cease to amaze me. That is ironic. lol

Hmm, here's one: On the waiting-for-ride bench on campus, there's a whole string of "Dear Abby" questions and answers about love, cheating, marriage proposals, and what women want. And Abby is quite the serious responder.

I wish I could remember some great graffiti from a Canadian rest-stop, but alas. It escapes me.

Yep that is ironic. Pity most graffiti in my country is pretty mindless. Oh I remember seeing one nice one:

There was this one public toilet down in a little town called whitby that never ceased to amaze me. You see, there's all the usual grubbing of hastily scrawled names, foul language and crudely drawn appendages, and yet there was one stall that was free from these in most ways. This was simply because it was the territory of one 'Mr.42', who had (with the aid of a pocket knife) carefully and meticulously mapped out nearly his entire sexual autobiography on the walls of that one stall. And we aren’t talking little weedy phrases like "Sharon did 42" or "I Got Laid" ohh no. These were entire paragraphs, painstakingly laid out in chronological order and contained info on the date, where they had gone for a meal / entertainment, the evening itself and then his private thoughts on her after the evening was done (not 'how she was' but her pro's and con's and whether the relationship could ever be anything more then a fling). With the amount of time I spent in that privy I managed to read about a half of his entire chronicle, dating back to about 1998. I actually felt rather sorry for him, as it was clear that he was getting ever more depressed as time went on, the detail and passion in those little stories becoming ever more 'laxed and misdirectional. The last, far shorter entry had been painted over with the exact same color as that which had first graced the wall, all that was visible was the year: 2002
Now you're just being silly.

I cant think of any particularly clever graffiti, but once i saw WHORE written on one of the lids of those metal trashcans and wrote an AL over the OR and drew a little whale below it. Later someone added "Save The" over it so I felt overall it was a wonderful improvement :p

On the note of positive graffiti, one time while in New York visiting a friend, we ventured down into the subway. In the stairway leading down, there was a fluorescent light covered by a plastic case on the ceiling. Scribbled across it in thick black letters was the message, "You are beautiful." It made me smile, especially to see this in the middle of NYC, which most people perceive as being such an unfriendly place.

I have a picture of it, actually, if anyone's interested: http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b292/ ... utiful.jpg

That was my general thoughts too, perhapse his last testiment was inscribed there and hence why it was covered but the rest was left untouched. I'll try to get a photo next time we go, which should be sometime in feb07.
