This is a question Best Graffiti Ever

My favourite was a public loo in Oxford where someone had written a huge poem all down the cubicle door. Best bit? Someone else had added detailed literary criticism. Only in Oxford. Have you seen better? Worse? Do tell.

In a lift at my local hospital
Maximum capacity 28 persons (or one fat cunt).

The last bit's added.

Ungodly grammar
Driving out of Nottingham one day, I noticed a clever bit of anti-Christian graffiti on a huge sign outside the weirdo Church off Gregory Boulevard (if you're local, you'll know which one I mean). "God Is Dead. Good." Who'd have thought that that two carefully placed full stops would result in such a clever twist? That'll teach 'em for preying on impressionable youngsters who may have been seduced by their poor use of grammar and trendy vocabulary!

I live in such a nice town
The graffiti daubed in (I hope) mud on the wall of the public loos read:

"Laura smells of of sh*t"

Yes, with the asterisk. I mean, you wouldn't want to offend anyone, would you?

How's my Driving?

A Fave From My Home Town...
Written a while back along with a few other iffy slogans credited to a local scratter by the name of Ziko was this little snippet of insanity...

"Ziko has big teeth".

I never did find out if he had a massive set of nashers, sadly.

Oh and a road name sign in nearby Bridgwater was always being altered from "Longstone Avenue" to "Bongstoned Avenue". Twas on the 'charming' Sydenham estate, like Moss Side only with Somerset accents.

there is a public Girls School called 'Polem Hall'

childish but good
There's a public footpath near my office with a sign that someone has altered to read "Pubic fartpath"

Incredibly childish but never fails to make me smile. Been like that for years.

You Look French
Was one insult written on a traffic bollard (of all places) on the way to my old school.
But my favourite is written on the wall of the underground carpark of the Asda in the town I grew up in. I went to meet my mum for lunch once and she was laughing so hard she was crying. I asked what was wrong so she took me to the carpark that she had walked through to meet me, and there in 5 foot high green letters it said...

"Piss Pants Dan. (It's just not his fault)".

I'm sure MC Hammer would never have done it...
..but in a subway in Hemel Hempstead, on my way to work each day I would note the graffiti which read:

"I got rapped here".

..which never failed to amuse me, mostly because I couldn't imagine who'd want to commemorate where they were presumably 'raped', or how they could spell it wrong.

Not condoning rape, just vandalism.

Only in West London
Turnham Green, for those who don't know it, is one of the poshest, leafiest, whitest bits of London. And written on the wall of men's toilet of The Tabard, Turnham Green's poshest, whitest pub, in beautiful curlicued handwriting, was a little poem...

As I was walking through Turnham Green,
A book face down it chanced I seen,
Eric Hobsbawm's 'The Age of Capital' was the Edition
I left it in the same Position

Makes a change from 'Fuck Chelsea' which is what's written on most of the loos in the area.

In Sudbury town centre, someone has written 'VOTE HERE' on a wall directly above a bin. With an arrow for the easily confused.
A hell of a lot easier to find than the official polling station, and about as effective.
Also quite clever for someone from Suffolk...

Woo, 1st post

Street signs!
Recontextualising such a common fixture as a street sign has a huge effect. It is simultaneously inconspicuous and memorable.

I wish I could take credit for this one, but the best I did was stick a red reflector sticker on a deer crossing deer's nose.

Some whippersnapper
in my local vicinity keeps stenciling the infamas bottleguy and goatse images on walls/fences/electrical boxes etc.

And once i saw some young children looking closely at it trying to work out what it was.
For their sake i hope they never did.

So many...
I've always liked the type where one person writes something, and someone has been so bothered by it that they've felt the need to write a reply underneath.

In the mens toilets in the Cro Bar:

"DJ Eazy pisses on any metal band"
"Why not just use a toilet like anyone else?"

and from the excellent Pictures Of Walls website:

"T-BONE is da illest"
"I'm sorry to hear that. I hope he gets better"

(see www.picturesofwalls.com for more fine examples of the art...)

Factual graffiti...
A few years ago I used to regularly go and see one of my mates play in a band at the Old Vic in Derby. On one such occasion, after soundchecking we were messing around, when we stumbled across the most breathtakingly, thought-provoking piece of graffiti either of us had ever seen. "Most vikings are gay" it boldly declared. We both pondered for while, as to how this conclusion was reached. Was it just a sweeping generalisation? Did the author carry out a detailed survey of viking sexual orientation, or was this something more meaningful? I'd like to think that this was a genuine conclusion to a proper viking-based sociological experiment - but it was Derby. Aswers on a postcard please....

Most amusing ones I've seen escape me,
but for the minute:

"I wish I had a tag" seen by a large bit of alright graffiti and clearly done with the same hand.

"Free airbag test" written in small writing on a Clio's bumper.

Hasn't this topic been done before bytheway?

Bus Stop
"This bus stop is out of order"

Not sure why but it really amused me...just how exactly can a bus-stop be out of order!?

the middle of Goldsworth Park in Woking stands a rather large electrical substation. Cruedly spraypainted on the side, it reads: "Goose my boy!". Don't know why, just makes me chuckle.

The vilest I ever saw
was at Chorlton Street bus station in Manchester, on the back of one of the cubicle doors:
" Phone 0161 XXX XXXX if you like to shit on fat blokes"
Still makes me shudder...

Finsbury Park graffitti
On the side of the Rainbow Theatre, now sadly occupied by some evangelical church, some one had written
"Ken Dodd's Dad's dogs dead"

I think i got the apostrophes right

But we personalised it and wrote it on his boot while it was open so he didn't see it until he shut it.

Also "Performance Astra" all along the driver's side
