|I saw perhaps the most brilliant graffiti I've ever seen, the other day. In huge letters, on the back of a KFC billboard, primarily visible from the KFC parking lot, simply "OBESE?"|
I've also been seeing a lot of 'tagging' sort of graffiti, the rubbish three letter gang initials or gang name every ten feet sort of thing. The only one of these (that may or may not be one of these) that I find more amusing than annoying is the one that's all along the length of Matilda Street, repeatedly declaring in large letters, "POO", each with a nearby picture of a Mr Whippy style steaming turd.
But for the rest of the tagging graffiti, I wonder whether that sort of vandalism would be dissuaded if some counter-gang were to go around at night finding tags and appending to each of them something offensive to the gangs but not to any reader. Something like, eg. turning every instance of "SBK" into "SBK is childish." Even if it didn't discourage tagging, it would at least make the graffiti more amusing to passers-by. [10:55] [0 comments]
