sergeant sandwich: grout post!

That reminded me of bathroom graffiti I'd seen long ago once in Pittsburgh and then somewhere else entirely: scrawled into the grout between the tiles were the words "GROUT ART RULES!" and "ART GROUT DROOLS!"

In all of my 56 years, I have never written anything on a bathroom wall. Does that mean I'm weird?

Fart loud if you love Jesus!

I took this in bathroom of the drug court where I'm working as a social worker:

There used to be a whole bunch of grout puns written in the grout of the wall of the men's bathroom in Powell's Books, in Portland, Oregon. A few months back they erased it though, which made me sad, because some of them were about as entertaining as a pun can get.

Hey what a coincidence, I have been reading about May 1968 in France this weekend and some of the grafitti that was all over the walls there.

Years ago I was shopping at Boeing Surplus. Inside the huge facility was a special cutting tool room which had higher-value merchandise, was fenced off, and a employee in charge of just that section.

I was standing before a chest of metal drawers, and I saw that the bottom drawer was pulled out slightly. There was a small piece of masking tape on the top edge of the drawer with something written on it. It was so small I had to fully squat down to read it.

The cryptic message read "Metric will win"...

From the bathroom of a physics building of an east coast university: "Heisenberg might have been here."

One of my favorites was in the women's bathroom at the Hole in the Wall in Austin:


Damn cross-dresser.

(ahem - that was actually at the Triple Rock in Mipples, according to my own submission.)

Y'all gonna hate me, but this was in the ladies room in the Macarthur Building on Adelaide St, Brisbane.

I was just thinking last week, "Has anyone ever studied what people write on bathroom walls? Does it change over the years?"

And here is this post!
