Fun Art Project! - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

The next time you go into a stall in a public restroom and there's graffiti all over the wall, take out your trusty pencil or felt tip pen. Draw a big box at the top of the wall and write inside the box, "This wall of graffiti does not cite any references or sources. You can help Wikipedia by rewriting this graffiti." Or maybe "The neutrality of this wall of graffiti is disputed." Be creative! Write little "[citation needed]" superscript notations after several bits of graffiti, maybe cross one out and write "rv vandalism" or "NPOV" next to it. What else might you write?

People leave livejournal websites in washroom stalls now?

Is this the 21st century equivalent of "For a good time call Jenny 867-5309"?

Geez, that's a really nifty idea! I'll try it out tomorrow at the Wal*Mart where I work. :D

This could also be applied to the fliers some people post in the stalls. There was one recently that was trying to get the "NUDE PERVERT BEACH" along our local shore shut down. =D

For ease of use, just print stuff up on Avery labels...

Either MAD or Cracked gave a list of inadvisable professions long ago. Most were made up, aside from White Basketball Player. One of the few I remember is Bathroom Graffiti Editor (changing "yo" to "your," etc.). I thought, "That's not so bad if you're getting paid for it."

My college had a popular graffiti catchphrase:

Tom
Yagoda
Blows
Dead
Bears

One day I wrote, "Mr. Thomas Yagoda administers oral sexual intercourse to ursine cadavers." Someone scratched over it. Philistine.

Yes, philistine!

Hmm, was it always written like that, with each word on a separate line? I'd be tempted to add extra text to each line...

Tom "Crazylegs"
Yagoda's secret to stress relief: he
Blows off
Deadlines and relaxes on a
Bearskin rug - what a slacker!

Someone did add to the lines. Something like:

Tomboy
Yagodamak
Blows away
Deadly
Bearskins

But you do it better. As usual.

I would be tempted to do {{notability}} or {{Afd}}.

As for graffiti stories, Stephanus loves telling the story of a graffito he once saw that said:
"πάντα μένει καὶ οὐδὲν ῥεῖ"

Aha! Now "Constipocrates" makes sense.

Interesting and odd. But it seems to have to do with the word order. If you put the words in the normal order KT isn't near the top anymore.

I usually write "toy" over crappy stallwork.

Hoenstly, you have all the time and space to yourself, so there is no excuse for bad bathroom tagging. hehe

Though my favorite was a hole in a bathroom door looking in to the toilet with inscription "For men and talented women". XD

Oh, tis the basic thing to put over crap to let them know they suck. By doing so, they often get mad and either get better, or stop all the junk (especially if you tag better right next to it)

He who writes on bathroom walls carefully rolls his poop into little balls.
He who reads what's written on the bathroom walls, gleefully eats them.
