The first few pictures are how they spell here in indy-anna.

Sometimes when we see these words wrong, we're not sure anymore if they are indeed right, since we see them so much, written wrong. ; (

mouse (aka kimy) said...

Do you hang around in back alleys a lot?
I wonder how many extra people showed up at the party.

Reya Mellicker said...

Have you ever left a message on a wall somewhere? I've drawn certain shapes with my handy sharpie here and there in the past. Usually it was some kind of magic I was involved in, but I've never thought to write something - a sentence or phrase - anywhere.

If I did, though, I'd make sure whatever I was writing was spelled correctly!

tut-tut said...

how great . . . communication is everywhere, all around us; words and symbols are the air we breathe.

Gary said...

I still say nothing beats the message on the banana.

Trac said...

Haha - yes the banana! :O)

These remind me of when I was 16 and going up the motorway to my brother's party in Northampton. Some rather 'creative' person had put new cardboard signs over a few of the real ones saying...

Harvey's Party 10 miles
or
Take next turning for Harvey's Party etc...

Naughty, but






kind of nice!
:O)

Couldn't do that now, could you? Not without being a CCTV Star anyway.

Trac said...

p.s. What fantastic and neat writing 'I know I have lost' has got!

Trac said...

p.p.s. Clearly, they don't just want to 'wright' on walls. They want to draw (drawer?) as well!

lettuce said...

hahaha, you lot are funny

coffee messiah, i spose there might be some who say that just as no native speaker of english ever makes a grammatical mistake, they also never make a spelling mistake....?
(sounds like a good excuse, anyway)

lamalu - Really!!!! oh. :o(

Kimy, i hate auto-correction

actually, ex-chammie, i do :o)

Do you know i haven't, Reya. I should sometime/s...

isn't it, tut-tut? and these sorts of scrawls are the kind of graffiti i like best i think

true, gary. I almost put that picture up here again. For those who didn't see it, here it is

trac what creative family/friends you have. funny and creative. (like you)

Trac said...

Have you started drinking early?

I only ask this, because you seem to have given up capital letters, so I figure that's because you have a glass of wine in one hand!

:O)

The Trustees said...

We hope to see excellent creativity like this on campus this year! we doonna care how you spell it, Kidz,

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

I'm not sure I should be, but suddenly I feel totally inclined to go and wright on walls! Lovely observations, Lettuce! Very cool! :-)

Dumdad said...

Wright on!

The Liberator said...

yay!

Shammickite said...

I don't blame you for going back and having another look at Tessa in the mud... I go back myself and I just can't believe how much she loved that slimy smelly greasy dirty MUD! But I couldn't stop her... all I could do was laugh, I was laughing so hard I could hardly hold the camera still enough to take pics!

Barbara said...

What struck me was how neatly "I KNOW I HAVE LOST" was written. A very thought-provoking post.

R.L. Bourges said...

Shammickite said...

Interesting... that Mudwig gets around.

lettuce said...

Vanilla, me too!

well shammie, some people pay a lot for that kind of beauty treatment...

barbara, isn't it? like the careful concentration of desperation...

rlb - thanks for the link! i do like to see the geographical meanderings of some of these graffitis
