WTF Cellphone Photoblogging

Okay, so, I have a cellphone with a 1.2-megapixel camera, which I take pictures with on rare occasions when I have to get the shot and I have nothing else handy. Today I saw a couple of mystifying things that I just had to share. I'm aware that the photos have absolutely no aesthetic value whatsoever, since I was just trying to document what was there rather than even attempt to make it look good.


I have absolutely no idea what this is supposed to mean. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?


I actually do know what this means, but I'm not telling.

The first is graffiti by two different people. The first graffiti was making a political statement: No war between nations. The second graffiti is a nonsense phrase designed to mock the first phrase. That's my guess.

The second one? My guess is someone has a fairly large bird -- possibly a parrot -- that likes breaking open bones to eat the marrow.

Probably right, and exactly right.

Rob said...

What kind of bird, do you know?

Eli said...

As I said, *exactly* right.

Although I don't know which specific breed.

(Verification word is "worgs" - I like!)

No, it's a graffito by one person that's been modified by someone else.

It originally said

NO WAR BETWEEN NATIONS
NO PEACE BETWEEN CLASSES

If you look, you can see how the second person added the G and the \ to make the R from the P. Someone has a little problem with the idea of class warfare, I guess.

As the rightards were so fond of telling us, pay attention to the kerning. ;)

I think Interrobang is spot on.

Thanks!

Rob said...

Interobang is right! I missed the "overwriting" when I caught the difference in the Rs.

I thought the second one had something to do with Charlie Parker. Bird loved them ribs!
