Funny defacements spotted in public places

Defaced.me is a blog all about rejoicing in spotting things that have been drawn on, torn apart, covered in stickers, or just plain sullied.

"A photo blog all about people ruining other people’s stuff cuz it’s funny."

Oh. Yay. 4chan is over there, actually.

Yeah, at the risk of sounding like a pussy, I don't know about that "ruining other people's stuff" angle.

But pictures of ghetto stuff is cool.

Completely worth it for this one.


Which I guess I would know if I kept with Meet the Lady.

God this Internet is a small place.


A small, small place getting smaller all the time.

This would be awesome if they set the bar a bit higher. Geordi Washington was cute but tall men need not limbo for this.

Need NSFW added.

Tons of bathroom humor and senseless vulgarity with the occasional gem such as the universe seen through a hole in a brick wall.

Seen a lot of these on Hacked IRL.

Yet another tumblr blog filled with images from elsewhere and in this case hotlinking images from flickr that are All Rights Reserved. Both add up to being very negative.

My apologies - the hotlinking was not happening. It's just the blatant copying instead. That's actually worse.

Every Monday through Friday, featuring a photo of me, taken about 5:30 PM.

Since it's tumblr, I guess it's unlikely the site will get hacked & defaced.

Shame.

How many times do I gotta click 'next' before I get to the funny ones?

Some of the defaced currency is funny (especially this Aladdin Sane-style Mexican banknote), and just one or two of the other things; the rest is crap that only a bored junior high student could love. I mean, really bored.

Yeah, I'm anti-"other people's stuff"-defacing.

If you want to take something of yours and write, scribble, slash or otherwise deface it? I'm there.

Full-disclosure: I am an admin on DEFACED (and of Meet The Lady, incidentally), and a bunch of the more recent images are photos I took. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that more people aren't as entertained by this stuff as I am. It fascinates me to see who decides to scrawl what, where. And the wide gulf that stretches between brainless (and even unintentional) humor and more clever/artistic stuff. And while I'm not all about defacing other people's stuff per se, I totally enjoy seeing the defacing of advertising. Some of them aren't funny at all, but I find them all pretty interesting.

Anyhow, guess it's not everyone's cup of tea.

This animation was pretty mind-blowing. That's a -lot- of work. I kept bein' distracted by the work over clean brick: either a lot of that raw-brick charm is lost forever or else someone -else- now has a lot of work.

There's a neat example of this, without crossing the line, that I passed on the way to work all this week.

There's a "XXXXXXX for Congress" yard sign on the side of the highway on-ramp and someone put a small sign in front of it which says "Politician for Hire."

I was tempted to snap a photo and post it somewhere, but while the politician is the one I oppose, I don't know that the accusation is any more accurate than it would be for almost every other politician in America anyway. So I just admire the commentary, the execution, the fact that it doesn't actually deface the original poster, just adds context, and I drive by without spreading the accusation.

It could use some Facebook and Twitter share links at the end of each post.
