There is a bathroom here at uni that every year I here had some of the best graffiti I’ve ever seen. The first year I was here it was “They say it isn’t ethical to put hidden cameras in the toilet, but I did. For science!” The next year there was a sticker about teen suicide and the rather black humored line “What do you want me to do about it? I’ve already not killed myself.” The strangest thing about it is the writing it very close to my own and the joke is very like I would make. It gave me a moment of confusion as to weather I wrote it or not. And then this year there is a debate about animal testing with the lines, “Ask the children of Thalidomide about not having animal testing.” And the reply “Thalidomide was tested on animals, the long term effects were not just not studied.”
