OK, the eggs are brilliant. But Weird Gal Yankovic is just... wrong.

I would be way more delighted/entertained finding a Hanksy over finding a Banksy. These are pretty hilarious

I'm getting a real Brandon Bird vibe from these...

I see this one regularly here in Chicago and it never fails to make me smile.

I love these. Especially Gaffigan and Gaffigan and Gaffigan.

I'm waiting for Spanksy, who'll give them all a paddling and send them home.

He's the street artist gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

Huh, I need to go tool around my old hood and look at the new street art. It looks like he covered up a pretty epic piece with the 'Cage Against the Machine' one. (It also looks like it was a semi-official do-over, which are pretty common around Melrose/LaBrea.) I do like how he sets a random-looking pastel base underneath the cartoons.

Have a good day at work, Honey. By the time you get home I'll have a Peewee Merman tattoo on my left buttock.

elizabeth hanks' interview with hanksy from last year is pretty great

I thought these were pretty funny. I also thought it was hilarious that he posted negative tweets about how awful people thought he was to his blog, in comparison to people who post all of the congratulatory praise (and that Jim Gaffigan figured out he could get posted by insulting him, heh!).

Also reminded me of this old chestnut T.HANKS.

"What's your favorite Tom Hanks movie?"

"Either The Money Pit or The 'burbs."

At this point everyone cheered, since clearly those are Tom Hanks' two greatest films.

I've been loving his stuff since I caught the Cage Against the Machine last month. He's pretty fantastic.
