BS: Graffiti Anyone?

From: Fiolar

'Catters may remember some years ago about a well known brand of vodka that had an advertising campaign with the words - "I thought ..... was ..... until I tasted ..... Vodka." I recall a classic graffiti on the walls of one pub's gents which went as follows: "I thought Wan King was a city in China, until I tasted ...... Vodka." Another classic (cleaned up a bit) was "It's no good standing on the seat; The Crabs in here can jump six feet." "Crabs" by the way in this context does not mean the shellfish variety but the slang name for "lice."

"I thought Wan King was a city in China,"

*grin*..a lot of American will say "huh?" to that, just as they don't understand the cultural place of "loo" and "knickers" etc....

I DO remember a graffiti from the Methodist Student Union at the U. of Kansas that asked: "Can a metaphysican be sued for malpractice?"

The first bit of graffiti I ever laughed at was on the men's room wall at a san francisco retail store. "Krishna Saves".

There's also a local artist who's done a series of 'signs' that, although not graffiti, are worth mentioning. His standard format is the black and white highway information sign, done huge. Three stories high, pointing up 'SKY'; 75 feet across, pointing at a large tree 'ONE TREE'. It's better in person.

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.

Lay down your burdens
Lay down your cares

With a big can of spray paint, yeah
And a big blank wall
And I can guaran-damn-tee you
There ain't no cops around at all

Graffiti Limbo
Where do you go?
Graffiti Limbo
When there ain't no justice

I only speak for myself
But the word around town
Is that something's shaking, yeah
In the underground
I only speak for myself
But the word on the street
Is that the writing's on the wall, yeah
And the cop's on the beat

As a very naive teenager I went to Highland Dancing camp at Lees Macrae College, in Banner Elk North Carolina. We used a boys dorm. It took me the longest time to figure out what those toilet things on the bathroom wall were, and I was in college before I understood what "This is a teepee of shit and peepee, not a wigwam to beat your tom tom meat on." meant. Someone had written it on the wall of one of the stalls. I am afflicted with a better than usual memory, especially for things that rhyme.

One night around the same time we were sitting in our favourite pub watching a Phillipino writing on the wall of the Phillipine Consulate across the street. He was using a tin of white paint & a brush & very carefully wiping the brush on the tin as he neatly painted MARCOS IS on the wall.

2 punks approached & spoke to him. He handed the brush to them & they scrawled some obscenity across the wall, without wiping the brush so the paint ran. When they handed back the brush he carefully completed his message and all the world could read MARCOS IS A BAD MAN.

it has now been recognised that having a wall sych as that painted to look nice by the local community often tends to slow down the rate at which it is covered with graffitti - but once it starts, if not removed, then its use as a place fo graffitti gradually becomes "accepted"

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.

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

And cure is so much nicer than prevention,
So verbalise your pre-orgasmic tension.

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...

My favorite graffiti is the art on the sides of box cars... I almost don't mind getting stopped for a long train as long as I have a good vi3ew of the art rollin' by in front of me...

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"

(Ratagan youth hostel gents, 1975): "Economy drive - please use both sides of the paper"

"Those who write on outhouse walls..."

Liverpool version

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.

On a very sad note, three lads were creating a graffiti mural in a dangerous place beside a railway line at Loughborough Junction, London.
A train killed all three in a horrifying incident.

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"...
