On one of my hobbles around Nottingham Castle, I came across some council workers removing a sign from the wall.

The sign read:
Visit Nottingham Castle to hear the fables of Robin Hood and his Merry Men

The graffiti written below it said:
Then visit Nottingham Council House to hear the fables of the
Merry Men and there robbing hoods

"I thought it was hilarious!. I'm going to include this in my Historical Walks of Ye Olde Nottingham articles for sure.
Wish I'd thought of it."

Ah the good old sense of humour will out in the end (except if this bloody spelling checker tells me again that I have spelled humour wrong).

Hello hello hello Arm,

I did notice a graffiti'd sign in the jobcentre a couple of years ago.

Sign: What job would you really like to do? - We can help!

Graffiti: Part-time gynalocical assistant!

Lynton,

Thought you might appreciate this Spell-checker Poem

Spell Check Poem
Also know as…
The Pullet Surprise Can Did Ate


Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea,
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight for it two say,
Weather eye and wring oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long,
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.

To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should bee proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaw's are knot aloud.

Eye have run this poem threw it
Your sure reel glad two no,
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Being a geek, the best piece of graffiti I've EVER seen was on a road sign leaving B&Q in Ashton-under-Lyne.

The sign originally read:

"Right turners use both lanes"

To which was added:

"Unless somebody's watching and collapses the wave function"

Sadly, before it could be appreciated by more physicists, the sign was cleaned.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

Ellie - quality.

Loved the graffiti removal hotline one.

I'm Banksy really.

But don't tell anybody.

Regards

Pablo Pricassole.
