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.

more shameless Ucking
Down here in Kent there is a town called Uckfield, named after the river that runs past it. It's the only place I've ever seen a non-rectangular river name-sign to avoid graffiti, it's shaped thusly:

There's a village that I used to drive through on my way to work in Rotherham (something else I'm sorry about).

This village was called "Stone" - Of course, it was hilarious to change the sign to "Stoned". Apparently.

It didn't matter how small the sign was made, it was still changed.

I never found that one funny.

Neither did the residents I reckon.....

have you heard about the tales of those toilets? Particularly the 3rd floor ones..

The toilets in the philosophy department are quite good as well. Definitely enough to keep you entertained for a good half hour. The toilets in the med school don't have any, but they do have handprints on the back wall at about the right level for someone getting a good seeing to from behind....

Union Road
For some reason, the sign for a road round the corner from me was changed from "Union Road" to "Onion Toad"

For reasons I never understood, it made me laugh. Every time.

I'm so very sorry

Graffiti isn't quite the word but this one makes me wee every single time I go past it.

In Margate we have Poorhole Lane.

Every single time we have a sign put up the 'r' has been removed. A new sign is inevitably put up and the 'r' is removed once more.

After about 6 or 7 times you'd think the council would get the point that no-one in the area has a mental age beyond 12 (good in only a certain number of cases) but no, resources are being continually wasted.

But in the best possible way.

Futile efforts from authorities are always fun.

Basically this is the best conjunction of three words in the history of literature. I saw it on a phone box in Balham, but here it is on the Church Sign Generator.

Village Names...very abusable!
I live near a village called 'Uckington' in Gloucestershire, and quite regularly the village name sign is altered to read 'Fuckington', or even better, just 'Fucking'.

When I was at Uni in Leicester the village where my halls were was called 'Scraptoft', and this was often defaced by the naughty students to simply read 'crap'.

And it was. It really really was.

Leicester University
Sitting on the toilet at my sister's university bar a good few years back, I noticed some extremely small graffiti on the bottom of the door... Lean forwards straining to read it and it says "You are now peeing on your shoes" - genius!

Another one.
Outside my College there are a load of white corrugated metal fences, and in big black lettering on one of them: "Question Everything!"
I walked past one day and asked myself "but why?"
Job done, I guess.

I love drawing on boxes of Family Circle

If the guy designing it didn't want this to happen, he wouldn't have put the jammy dodger and the chocolate finger so close to one another.

Hello Mr Fudgebags!
I'm also at Glasgow! The ladies' loo in the library has some gems, but my flatmate once told me a tale. He was in a cubicle, idly reading the typical "come and suck my boaby" graffiti. A chap had written that he'd like to suck a man's cock, and requested advice. This had been added. He'd written back, now asking how to find a man to suck off. "That's easy," someone had replied, "you just let them know you're here by tapping your foot."

My flatmate is a drummer.

He stopped tapping his feet.

No overexcited cottagers that time, but he was lucky...

In toilets

"While you're reading what i've put, you are pissing on your foot"

seen it twice now, might be a 'quote' from something.

the pleasant spa town of leamington
has some of the most whimsical graffiti of anywhere. when i lived there a few years ago, its gems included:
(massive black letters on the front of the station);
a series of time updates ending at 4.19am with the eminently sensible
and, painted on a pavement
(this one trailed off at the end, so you wondered if the author ever made it to his destination);

At work
In the toilets the sign reading
"Please refrain from putting chewing gum in the urinals"
had been changed with a marker to read
"please refrain from chewing the urinals"

A particular favourite in London
On a tube once I saw a poster with "In case of emergency"

Someone had scrawled underneath "CALL THE JELLYFIENDS!"

Me and my mate still find this hilarious, 20 years later

I live in Amsterdam
Which is often shortened to ADam. On a bus I once saw that some borough hooligans had declared how proud they were of where they lived by scrawling "ADam West Rules!"

Quite why they felt so strongly for the batman star I will never know

In a service station toilet cubicle..
On my left, "To play toilet tennis, look right",
