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!)

Interrobang said...

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

It originally said


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. ;)

Eli said...

I think Interrobang is spot on.


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!
