I emailed the British Garden Birds R Gay story to a friend. His response was this:
they used the ?!
that was meant to be the backwards-R.
the r's in Rock Group as well.
does this work?
Gotta love the cyrillic characters :)
Where someone's graffitied something along the lines of:
I mean really, you just climbed to the top of a building and decided to spray paint something on it but you're going to censor your swear words? What a c*nt!
at Dalmeny train station, just outside Edinburgh. Someone's gone to the trouble of getting along the tracks to write "LUMPING F__K" on the side of a maintenance hut.
My favourite ones so far have been one in Edinburgh where someone just painted "BAWS" in massive yellow letters on a wheelie bin; and one in Glasgow Uni library where there's a legendary bog cubicle where all the grafitti is dedicated to John Leslie.
ones I've spotted round and about on my flickr page...
"WU TAN CLANG"
i once saw some grafitti on a post it note on a bus. i don't know if it even counts as grafitti but it just said "i am gay with your grandad". class
what's the "british birds r gay" story? please share
but this is the news story
the words 'SG18 MASSIVE' on a wall near Aldi. For some reason, everyone finds this 'hilarious' whereas, I just don't.
I like the Korn graffiti though, good find.
Banksy's car near Brick Lane near Rootmaster Bus...
When, OH WHEN did someone decide to put a glass or perspex box around it?
Who would this 'belong' to now? Don't tell me Hackney City Council decided that it was a work of art that needed protection or conservtation? (Actually, is Brick Lane Hackney? I don't think so.. I don't know...)
I noted the glass box / perspex thingy last night when mooching around Brick Lane and it made me really sad that something that has been there for years as a piece of urban art is now viewed as as a commercial commodity because of Banksy's (kind of ridiculous) market value. I mean, COME ON. It defeats the whole point of the piece in my view.
"I'm horny, horny horny Horner"
To this day it still makes me laugh :D
"Biology: It grows on you." or something like that in them.
an old style metallic road sign near me that was still untouched in the late 90s, despite having 'SLADE' sprayed on its rear.
in Bromsgrove i saw
JACK BAYLEY IS TALL.
It's true as well, he's about 6ft1
four "stay thin" graffitis around Sheffield, all hilarious. But none quite match the "I've got the constipation blues" just off devonshire street.
