Many years ago, traveling south on Highway 99 from Bakersfield toward Los Angeles there was an old abandon building off to the west as you began up the grade of the Ridge Route (the Grape Vine). Someone had painted in large letters "Jesus Saves". And so it was for many years. Then one day as I was headed over the Ridge and happened to glance toward said fixture I ntoice that someone had painted below the original lettering "...Green Stamps". I hope some of you are old enough to remember what Green Stamps were.

That's from a song by the Gasworks, Guest,strad, a duo from Lancashire, I believe. If memory serves, the chorus goes:

Verbalise your pre-orgasmic tension,
Whisper dirty things into my ear.
Please afford me proof of your intentions,
Say those three short words I long to hear: (drop 'em blossom) For
I'm so insecure I need your constant reassurance.
You're the only cure, so please don't tax my endurance.
And cure is so much nicer than prevention,
So verbalise your pre-orgasmic tension.

Verbalise your pre-orgasmic tension,
Whisper dirty things into my ear.
Please afford me proof of your intentions,
Say those three short words I long to hear. For
I ain't heard a dirty word since 69 BC;
Now I long to hear each little obscenity.
And cure is so much nicer than prevention,
So verbalise your pre-orgasmic tension.

(copyright by John Brown & Mike Draper - aka "Gasworks")

Sheesh - the things one commits to memory!

Not especially funny, but extremely well-placed was the graffiti on a fence to one side of the M40 on the way into London, with the words, in huge letters "why do I still do this every day" for the benefit of commuters stuck in the traffic. It was there for years, but appears to have been painted over recently

The most intellectual piece of graffiti I've seen was drawn three feet high along the full length of the wall of a block of flats in Üsküdar, across the Bosphorus from Istanbul. Advanced high school or undergraduate organic chemistry reaction diagrams. I think it was documenting the Grignard reaction. The only explanation I could think of was that somebody in the block opposite was using it as a revision aid.

Back when I was in college at VCU I discovered, quite by accident, a "one-holer" in the basement of the old administration building... I kinda thought of it as my own private bathroom 'cause no-one, or so I thought, knew about it...

This was around the time that Richard Pryor had that unfortunate accident with fire and got badly burned with some kinda illegeal activity and his PR people concocted a story that he was drinking rum and it caught on fire... Yeah, right???

So I wrote on the door of the stall, "Richard Pryor gets lit on rum"...

About a week later I was making a visit to my personal, or so I thought, bathroom only to discover that right under my comment someone had written, "That's base!"...

So I took out my felt tip and wrote under that comment, "Free Base?"...

That's about as far as that thread went and those 3 comments/graffiti contributions may and probably are still there... I've often wondered if some kid later found what he or she thought was their own personal privy and wondered, "Who is is Richard Pryor?"...

LOL...

In a pub in Lawrence, Kansas, a woman came out of the ladies room with a puzzled look. She explained that on the inside of the door, facing those seated, was this curious bit of graffiti:

"I usually don't write on toilet walls,but in this case I'll make an exception."

Gents toilet wall graffiti down the years:

"It's no use standing on the seat
The germs round here can jump six feet"

"Seven-Up is good for you - ask Snow White"

"Linda Lovelace has the nicest teeth I've ever come across"

(Imperial College toilet wall, 1969): "Shit hard - it's a long way to the refectory"

"Those who write on outhouse walls..."

When you use these marble halls
Use the paper, not the walls,
If no paper can be found
Rub your arse along the ground
If that still no do the trick
Wipe your ares upon a brick

On a demolition site on adjoining toilets that had been outhouses in someone's back yard

It's no good standing on the seat
the crabs in here can jump six feet
and if you think that's rather high
try next door, the b*st*rds fly.

And next door read:

In this place of rest
we do our best
to keep it clean and sweet
so God bless your soul
and sh*t down the hole
and not upon the seat.

My Dad's favourite was on a particulary heavily written upon wall.

One would think with all this wit
That Shakespear's ghost came here to s*it.

And as George P said, isn't it weird what one's memory retains?

A historical one based on the popular mid-19 century popular song, 'I Dreamt that I Dwelt in Marble Halls' (from my mother's youth - seen in a ladies lavatory in New Brighton)

I dreamed I was tickling my old feller's feet
With a glass of sweet oil and a feather.
The more that I tickled, the louder he laughed
Till the cheeks of his arse flapped together

Lewis Carroll, IIRC, parodied "I dreamt I dwelt..." as follows:

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls,
And each damp thing that creeps and crawls
Went wibble-wabble on the walls.

A long time ago I heard:

Last night I tickled my grandfather's balls
With oil on the end of a feather,
But what seemed to please the old gentleman most
Was knocking them gently together....
Cetera desunt.

Some years back there were two or three (or more) paperbacks released of (alleged) amusing graffiti. The one that stuck in my mind was the tale of a gent's urinal somewhere that had the graffiti painted over. On the now pristine wall, someone drew three columns labelled "Sport" "Politics" "Sex".

The next bloke wrote underneath "Up the Reds", "Up the Reds", "Up the Reds"...
