Still proud

graffiti fail

Athens, Tennessee. A young man attempts to pledge his undying love by spraying it on an overpass of I-75.

“Myers said when she arrived, Clark was standing at the railing holding the rope with his friend dangling below. She told Clark to put his hands up, but he said he couldn’t let go of the rope.

She said Musnicki tossed the can of red spray paint and tried to escape, but got tangled in the rope. She put Clark in her car and drove around to the road below, arresting Musnicki after he was helped down by a passer-by with a ladder.”

Yeah, you laugh. But I bet both these fine lads got a little something for their trouble. Arrested spray painting “I love you” on a bridge abutment? That there’s romance for you.

sock it to me

Actually, I’m kind of surprised he passed the “put up your hands” test.

OT: Stoaty, I’ve made amends with my Mocassin Bend faux pas: http://perfunction.typepad.com/perfunction/2008/03/loony-bins-new.html

I saw that on Drudge!

Butler hospital in Providence was founded as the Butler Hospital for the Insane. I know this because I used to bike to the North Burial Ground and snooze under the founder’s monument.

Uncle B’s place in London was not far from the Hospital for Incurables. Yeah, it must’ve been REAL happy walking in under an archway that says that.

And to you, NB!

Being the irreligious type, it’s not really one of my big days. But Uncle B sent me a Lindt chocolate bunny, so…w00t!

Wait, is w00t! an appropriate Easter greeting?

Of course it is! He is Risen – and you’ve been appropriately chocolated.

I knew a guy in high school who did that on a water tower. He didn’t get caught tho.

Happy Easter everyone!

Kowboy, I used to throw rocks at a water tower I walked by on my way to school. It made the neatest friggin’ sound. It sounded exactly like the Martian Machine rayguns in the (old) movie War of the Worlds.

I have always wondered if that was where the Hollywood sound effects folks got the sound. I can’t be the only person that’s thrown rocks at a water tower.

McGoo, never tried throwing rocks at em. They were usually too damn far off the roads here to bother with. lol

I hear ya. Only reason I could hit it was I always cut across the field, close to the tower.
