Thread Name: BS: Graffiti Anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Graffiti Anyone?
The content wasn't important although it was quite good, but the greatest piece of bathroom literature I ever saw was in the Men's first floor restroom, stall adjoining the wall, of Draper Building at Berea College in 1967.

Imagine if you will..............

The wall is multi-shades of green ceramic tiles measuring about 1 inch by 2 inches. The grout gap measures maybe an eighth of an inch and the wall is about 6 foot long (in the stall) and goes to the ceiling, about 12 feet. Graffiti covers all of the GROUT, every tiny bit of it....none on the tiles..... and extends the height and width of the wall. The lettering is incredibly neat and completely legible...a beautiful job! It was a true work of art and I wondered who the hell had done it and what an incredible amount of time it took to do! I mean what the hell, this was college and there was an incredible amount of time to waste.....

It remained there all the time I was there as if even the janitors and administration people found it to be a work of art as well.
