Searchbarred, no recent threads like this.

I personally hate graffiti in general, I think it's destructive, unsightly and just dumb. However, I can't resist some good clever stuff on the inside of a public toilet stall, it makes my dumps so much more entertaining. Opinions?

It's only idiotic vandalism when I find my phone number on the wall.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

Clever and entertaining? Yeah. Idiotic Vandalism? Yeah, as well. There's no meaningful self-expression in toilet graffiti.

He who writes on shit house walls
Rolls his shit into little balls.
And he who reads these words of wit
Eats those little balls of shit.

I read that in a portapotty when I was 11. I still remember it.

With graffiti, it really depends on the quality, adn what they're trying to accomplish.

Mostly the latter.


So if it's retarded, it's retarded, if it's tasteful/meaningful, it's tasteful/meaningful.

If it's funny I appreciate it, if it's just bullshit like most graffiti, then it's still bullshit, public toilet or otherwise.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I think all those penises drawn on the wall are symbolic of our troubling economic times.

EDIT: Even the funny ones wouldn't be so funny if you were the one who had to clean that up.

Same as any graffiti:

It depends entirely on what you write/draw and how you write/draw it. Obviously.

I love toilet graffiti, just as long as it's done with style and funny.

I especially like this one.

True. I guess I see a lot more clever and funny stuff in toilet stalls though, while most "regular" graffiti seems to just be indecipherable crap. But of course both types have their large share of crudely drawn weiners.

EDIT: "Push button receive bacon" is ****in classic.

Sell your Valvestate to brainless 17 year old for mighty sums of dollars. Purchase a JMP for a pittance from a desperate seller. Masturbate to pictures of yourself and your new, real Marshall. Eternal glory awaits.

Depends. Most is dumb, but if there's a good message behind it or something similar, I support it

I avoid public restrooms at any and all cost, so I really have very little opinion on this matter.

You guys should look up a guy called Banksy, his grafitti is considered works of art

Exactly why I said MOST regular graffiti is indecipherable crap.

I find it very entertaining. I found a lovely little quatrain in one of my school's bathrooms:

I take a shit,
Alone with thoughts;
I skip the quiz,
And pop a squat.

You can't beat that.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

O Cloacina, Goddess of this place,
Look on thy suppliants with a smiling face.
Soft, yet cohesive let their offerings flow,
Not rashly swift nor insolently slow.

--- Lord Byron (1788-1824)

Great example.

Just a little added information on that to explain why that's funny for anyone who doesn't know. 'Cloacina' was the Roman goddess of sewers.

This is indeed 'toilet humor' from Lord Byron, which is a bit like Dickens telling a fart gag.

If I find it ammusing then cool, but it's mostly stupid. Seriously, no one wants to see your F*CK YOU and and your swastikas in a stall

Hate it. The male toilet in the library at uni has a wall covered in little conversations where people try to be "out there" and out-smart each other. Also, inside cubicles it's just old guys looking for 14-17 y/o boys. Sick.

Purest form of art

That is quite a thought.

I think it's funny. It gives you something to read while you're in there.
I wouldn't write on the walls of a clean bathroom, but I've been to this public stall that had a swastika on the back of the door and I turned it into a Windows logo.
#36
I avoid public toilets as much as possible, but Loo Graffiti is an important cultural aspect.
#37
Usually it's a load of crap (no pun intended) but occasionally there is some which is genuinely thought provoking and clever (such as the 'purest form of art' pic a few posts up). That I quite like.

The best one I know of was in the toilets of the leeds university library. Written on one of the toilet roll dispensers were the words "Sociology degrees, please take one and use appropriately"

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

since bathroom graffiti is neither done for financial gain or personal recognition it is the most pure form of art
