Writing on the Wall

6 Apr

Observed in the neighborhood.

I don’t know who the “characters” are, that the owner is referring to….People relieving themselves or with elections approaching… one never knows πŸ˜‰

    Vijay, were you on a morning walk at that time, it looks beautiful behind the wall with sunrise/fog set in. or was it a smoke on that side?

    Looks like not everybody likes politicians πŸ˜‰

    Nice stains on the wall (lower half) though!

    Ok, don’t laugh at me, but I’m still trying to figure out if that was genuinely poor language, or were they being too clever?!

    I can tell why they have worded this way….in my neighborhood, some one painted ‘Do Not Urinate Here’ and some of the local boys promptly blacked out ‘Not’ and u can imagine the rest of the story

    It’s a little bit like putting up a sign, “This is a nuclear free zone,” which, believ it or not, some of our counciols do around here.

    Just like the ‘no nukes’ sign won’t stop a bomb, this sign won’t stop the “bad characters” loitering near (or toiletering on) that wall.

    What’s so precious about the wall anyway?

    Vijay, you really have a journolist eye man! People might be thinking all creative words to say it out.

    Once I noticed that a wall was stuck with all GOD’s pictures(the tiles one) but I didn’t see any temple around. and then I was told that, it was to avoid the stinkers…! πŸ™‚

    vijay/vijay (and others who are yet to discover twisted-dna by themselves):

    this is a good response.

    How about “Dont uranate her” ? I saw this on a wall near Commercial Street.

    Hey, could you tell me the location of this wall in the city …..
