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.

Mums are hoes!
Was driving along the other day, through the middle of town, and saw a large articulated 'Iceland' lorry, which should have read 'Because Mums Are Heroes!'

But had been changed to read 'Because Mums Are Hoes!

Click 'I Like This' if you think mums are hoes!

First Post, Woo!!

about a month ago i was walking through town where there are some billboards. (can you guess where this is going?)

one one billboard there was a certain Marks and Spencer advert about food.

it started Out (along the lines of): 'this is not just food this is M&S food'

it ended up mostly sprayed out with mostly greek helmets WTF?! but they left 'this is' and put Sparta at the end.

Length? Oh about 1 cubit

45 pages.....i aint proof reading this.

years ago, on the Mersey Tunnel ventalation shaft was a very very large PIES sign, maybe 30 fot high. Could be seen for miles.

Apparently, it was a marketing stunt for the La's reforming - but they only let a few people know so it was pointless, until they did reform.

I like big Pies

Just now...
It was recently my brother's birthday, and as he supports Wolverhampton Wanderers, someone got him a card saying 'To Wolves' Number One Fan'.
I sneakily added 'ny' to the end.

That'll learn 'im.

my step dad..
..a man with strange ideas and a penchant for mischief decided during the Marks and Spencer christmas advertising spree ' CHRISTMAS IN THREE WORDS.' added 'CHRIST IS BORN' by the side,odd as he is in no way a christian and fully knows that 'M&S' is a jewish company...hmm,
he also claimed to have, one evening (drunk), taken some of his pals up to the 'White horse of kilburn' (a large,apparently stoneage,mural of a horse on the side of the hill that can be seen for miles around yorkshire) armed with rolls of black bin bags to roll down the side to create a zebra.. i personaly think some sort of giant cock sprayed on to the beast undercarage would have been more whimsical.ah well..

In an old peoples home
in their toilet was written " be nice to your children because they will choose your nursing home". I guess it was a warning to all potential old people to be!

Not graffiti
This isn't graffiti, but I did some work for Croydon Council and the department behind me was called the "Drug and Alcohol department" - no graffiti required methinks......

I often wondered if they had samples (of alcohol of course!)

Am I the only one old enough to remember
George Davis is Innocent?

All over London in the 70s often in quite inventive places. He wasn't by the way, well not exactly. Innocent of what he got sent down for, not innocent of all the other stuff.

In Monmouth Street in Covent Garden, one of the buildings has Victorian pseudo-graffiti. You know the type of thing: a description of the business written directly on the brickwork. Usual examples are "Gunsmith" or "Purveyor of fine meat".

This place is advertised as selling "Horse Clothing" in big black letters. I doubt if anyone but me sees it. Whoever looks up in London?

I know what it's supposed to be but it always makes me think of a horse wearing a tweed jacket and a bowler hat.

High charged intellectual atmosphere
At the london school of economics the toilet graffiti is all rather political and intellectual, and is written in tightly organised paragraphs with a reasoned argumentative flow. terrible geeky shite. except one...

In one cubicle, on the door opposite the actual toilet, is written in large red letters:


Click 'I like this' if you done a poo.

Seen on Wigan to Liverpool Lime Street train journey.
Just before entering Liverpool lime street station (or maybe just a bit further back, I can't recall, maybe it's after Wavertree Technology Park stop) someone has wrote


On a wall, in very large colourful writing. What the hell is that about? Some chav who was blotto declaring their undying love of Pies? Who knows??....

In huge white letters on a wooden fence down our road:


Stayed there for years and if you squint in the right light you can still see the letters under the creosote.

In a old folk's home...
There was such a home near my old uni halls and we could see the stairwell from the road.

Upon passing by one day, we noticed that someone had burned the word 'disco' into the ceiling of the stairwell.

Since then, some of us have been planning to release a death metal song titled 'Old People Disco'.

dan-dan-dan-dan-dan-dan-dan-dan-OLLLD PEOPLE DISCOOOO!!!

Bearing in mind this was decided at 1am on the way to a 24hr ASDA for munchies, this may explain our decision.

Exeter Uni (and city)
Recent one: 'Ceci n'est pas une mur' on the back wall of Debenhams.

But there are some real classics in the Ram Bar (student union bar) toilets. A while ago the student newspaper printed some pictures of the full text of Jabberwocky (IIRC) written on a cubicle wall in the ladies', not entirely original but cool.
The gents' has some good ones here and there, including the classic 'drama degrees - please take one' on the loo roll dispenser, or a 'debate' about evolution heavily featuring words such as 'gay', 'cock' etc. But my favourite has to be the "Rate your Shit" that has appeared in several cubicles, with entries like '8/10 - nutty with a hint of chocolate', '2/10 - too runny', and the pure genius of '1/10 - like giving birth to a Black & Decker power tool'. All in different handwriting, obviously.

Subtle ... you have to read it twice.
White van with the cheapo vinyl lettering stuck to the side. Should have the company name and 'SHOP FITTING' underneath.

I assume it was done by cutting up one of the 'T's and swapping the letters around, but some poor sod is driving around in a van advertising his company as 'SHOP LIFTING'.

I had to do a double take on it, so I bet he hasn't noticed yet.

Art Terrorism. Quite funny.
Back at university a renegade named Pat had a tasty habit of printing off slogans on little stickers and sticking them in public enclosed spaces. My favourite, which I once spied on a horribly packed tube, was "Cough Freely. Be Generous with Exotic Diseases" ;)

on a predominantly white estate near to my own humble abode, several instances of the phrase BITCHES N HOES were to be found, in several colours and differing font styles.

beautifully out of context.
