I think it is.

Feel free to discuss, fellow Spoofers and readers.

Regards,

Skoob.

It depends where it is at.

Generally, it is mostly VANDALISM!

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Is vandalism art?

Is art vandalism?

Is the urge to destroy a creative urge?

I have a mate who thinks that the Tate Modern would be better if there was a Debenhams.




Ssshh...... you never know just who is listening.

I've never done it on anybody else's property, but I've done it on paper, my own I hasten to add. Often thought about doing a giant one down the side of the house with Homer Simpson on it, but the wife wouldn't have it and the neighbours would complain.

I think people like Banksy and Seen are really creative. They both make a living out of it these days. And I think that guy whose name eludes me right now but who they call the 'Pavement Picasso' who does all the 3D stuff is amazing.

All in favour of creativity, despite being a curmudgeonly old sod.

Mind you, most of it is mindless vandalism.

Regards,

Skoob.

Agreed!

However, the best graffiti is usually a witty remark.

E.g. someone wrote: "Grils are stupid!"
somebody added: "Don't you mean girls?"
Some wit added: "What about us Grils?"

We had a little grafitti in the bathroom at work.\

Some idiot wrote "Kill all the white people!"

I saw that, thought about it for five seconds, and wrote underneath it "Then who will pay your welfare checks?"

The next morning, I saw that someone had written underneath that "The Jews."

Bog humour, superb, actually a metal band called Type O Negative have a song called Kill all the white people, maybe a Type o Negative fan wrote it?

Bog humour,

Written on lavatory wall:

9 inches, any takers?

OK but how big's your dick?

Stupidly,

Skoob.

Graffiti found on condom machines:


Shower cap for dickheads

Head gasket for a hot rod

Sperm bank deposit envelope

My favorite: Don't buy this gum - it tastes like rubber!

Done, but with errors on page.

I have a set of indescernible letters on the side of my house. Granted, the color is good. But the shading is ghastly. Not to mention the plain brick background. No, I don't call this "art". I call it some kid with too much time on his hands.

Signature lines are for psychos.
