» Best Graffiti Ever

Wirral railways
My favourite was one I first noticed when I was a kid on the local trains, on the sign that read:

'Please Mind Your Head'

some wag had amended it to read:

'Fleas in Your Head'.

Also, not particularly witty, but on the bridge at Bromborough Rake station there was, in simple white letters:

'The Clash'

I think it's been removed now...

» The worst sex I ever had

...of my sex life which can be broken down as such:

early-crap crap crap first time to the extent that she said "it didn't count" sometime afterwards

uni-bits and bobs here and there including a 7 month stint with one girl who had a boyfriend elsewhere (it was all shit)

recent-amazing 2 month period that left me broken, emotionally that is, when it ended. I'll always have the memories. Lucky me.

So, in one way or another, it's all been the worst sex I ever had .

» Best Graffiti Ever

And yet more Merseyside railway stories...
Seeing that railway bridge reminded me that for some inexplicable reason the railway bridge in Bromborough was covered with Wu-Tang Clan graffiti. And if you know Bromborough (or the Wirral for that matter) you'd know that it's hardly the place you'd expect to find many rap fans. If I was back home I'd try and get a picture - although I'd probably be chased off by scallies at this time of year.

Also, El Barto, the infamous Springfield graffiti artist visited The Wirral once and left so many tags that he made the front page of The Wirral Globe...yep, graffiti was big news back home.

I really hope no-one has already posted this otherwise I'll feel like a right idiot, but then someone really should have done. The rumour goes that before The La's became The La's they were known as Pies. To gain notoriety they graffitied their name on one of the ventilation towers for the Mersey tunnel, an image of which can be seen here, on the far right: www.alandunn67.co.uk/spies.html

That's now been removed but you can still see 'PIES' written on a wall next to Edge Hill station, also pictured on that link (second from the left).

Also, so my female friends informed me, The Egg cafe in the centre of town used to have an extensive debate on the subject of 'cake vs sex' in its women's toilets. I think they said cake was winning.
