This blog brought to you by the following corporate sponsors...

I've seen a lot of stupid graffiti in my time, but this... oh, dear. See it? Up there in corner? It's the frikkin' Ford logo.  And then below it, we have "Like a ROCK" (underlined three times, because the writer really means it). What are vandals coming to? Tsk tsk, modern urban yout'.

In my day we made up our own corporate mottoes, thank you very much. I still recall scrawling "PEPSI: SOME PEOPLE LIKE HOW IT TASTES" on the desk during Western Civ, and spraypainting "MOP 'N GLOW: IT MOPS AND GLOWS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT" on the overpass heading out of town...

(Found by Stacy, which I find highly suspicious.)

Somebody take these kids' Xboxes and iPods and give them copies of "The Anarchist's Cookbook" instead.

Is this real graffiti or some sort of modern art imitation graffiti? The black walls seem a little too hip.

At least they didn't draw a Calvin peeing on another Calvin peeing on a Chevy logo.

Somebody spray painted "knitting is love" on the building behind where I used to work. And they used a stencil. Tidy vandals who like to knit... what is the world coming to?

I will always regret not having a camera with me that morning.

I don't know a gang of American pickup trucks enthusiasts scares me. Terrorizing people in their gimme hats - shiver.

I've never seen carpet graffiti before.

This is, from my recent experience, standard fare for a foreclosure. Actually, there could have been a lot more graffiti, and melted crayons on heat registers.

What? No Dodge logos? Perhaps they can't spell "Daimler" or "Fiat" or any other of them ferrin words.

And what does that one that's partly obscured by the door say? It looks like "something something ck me". "Truck me"? "Back me"? "Slick me"?

I have no idea.

To add even more insult to the vandals, "Like a Rock" is the slogan for Chevy Trucks, not Ford.

The second and fourth photos are an unfortunate reminder of what can happen when the listing agent is not present for a home inspection with an overzealous inspector.

Dude, I told you, I am afraid for my life. I passed that house today and sunk down. I checked for signs of Chair Massacres, but there were none.

The writing behind the door is obvious. F*ck Me....hmmm, they didn't get that one right, either, did they? I can't believe you don't need a license to graffiti!!

burhanistan said...

Well, duh. We were having some fun with it.

I'm more puzzled by the fact that the house is located in Jersey Shore, PA, which as far as I can tell is about 250 miles to the west of the actual Jersey Shore.

There's some graffiti interuptus I see on my way to work each day that appeared during the G8 summit.

'Are you ang' it says.

It makes me very ang.

Meli, if you think spraypainting "knitting is love" is strange, check out www.knittaplease.com. Those tiny vandals actually use knitted items to spread that love!
