Hi,

It is a sad indication of the state of my life that I'm taking cellphone snapshots of graffiti scrawled on the walls of the gents' toilets, but this struck me as particularly noteworthy:

Join BECTU and become a spark!

Now, is this:

A ) A vicious slander upon the good character of our colleagues from the electrical department, whose cheerful deportment and unstinting helpfulness shine like a golden light over everyone on set,

or

B ) The most accurate piece of bathroom graffiti since man discovered that it's possible to simultaneously vent one's bowels into the void and one's spleen onto the wall.

Well I guess that's better than the other way around...

haha, My favorite one (of which I have no photographs) is one I saw in a University. In the toilets of the Arts faculty building there was a toilet paper dispenser with the words "Arts Degree; Please Take One" nicley stenciled above it.

My favourite, which I didn't see, only heard described, is the one penned on the side of the stall. Upon leaning down to read it you discover; "You are now at a 45 degree angle"
