Fun contractor name Friday.

Really?! Aggressive Glass and Mirrors? Are they trying to de-emasculate selling window shades and blinds?

Contractor name Fridays!

How many prongs?

Nothing like an optical illusion to distract you from the work you're being paid too much to be avoiding.

Lesson one...

Are we talking about Italians or Italian Americans? That's the real question.

Chinatown graffiti

KA sent me this link to grubstreet- I actually took the same photo three weeks ago on the corner of Mott and Canal. Good looking out- I guess the plywood makes it feel like construction graffiti.

Construction graffiti portrait

I love this portrait so much. Mostly because it looks exactly like someone on my job. Matt Laly pop. The best name ever.

Construction graffiti cock

Sorry if you guys were expecting a rooster, but I'm sure that my regular readers were having cock withdrawal since I haven't posted one in awhile, despite the fact that the graffiti penis dominates the walls of every job.

Valentine's day graffiti

If you know what's good for you, you'll refrain from using any of the words on this list with your Valentine.

Jesus Christ guys, thank you for only adding the filthiest words to my vocabulary. Fur Burger? Anyone?

The Fuckin' Union **UPDATED**

That's right, it was on CNN last night, but you know where you saw it first!

MTA Construction Graffiti **UPDATED**

So CM Wallwatcher got drunk last night and while waiting for the subway to arrive, he saw some MTA construction workers staging for some late night work. Perfect ball breaking opportunity. "Hey you guys! Don't fuck up the spelling of BRODA-WAY!" Everyone laughed- I think that was an MTA-wide joke yesterday.

NYDN Reports on some bona-fide Construction Graffiti! This was paid for by Bloomberg and installed with Union Labor! Broda-Way! Heyyyyyy, that's how the paseano say it!

Children's Construction Graffiti

CC from Portland, ME sent me this link to some chalk graffiti on the plywood surrounding some playground construction. BAD Children! Keep it up and you will be drawing very inappropriate things, rather than marketing for George Lucas in less than a decade!

Silly Pepsi - Advertising Graffiti

You didn't consider what your MTA ads did when they were put next to one another...

Cows don't drink Pepsi. You're not fooling anyone. Besides, the "Got Milk?" campaign wasn't that cool.

It's true, this actually might lure some Red Sox fans into your productsphere. They'll buy anything.

Don't snitch, Pepsi. Po-Po might buy your shit, but that ain't gonna make it popular with the people.

Terrible marketing, Pepsi! How do you expect to sell a product when you're advertising Herp?!

Recession graffiti

It's actually a recession advert, worded quite well!EV Grieve: EV Grieve Etc.: Mourning edition (updated)

No kidding.

It's not a fucking wishing well either, it's a urinal- keep the change out of it!

Recession graffiti

Bowery Boogie snapped a flick of a cop issuing a parking ticket from a horse. I guess the city can't afford gas anymore so they're buying hay instead. Watch out graffiti writers, these horses can run, and jump fences.

Derrière le grand

Strikes again. Who's feuding with the local 608 carpenters?

Olympic Graffiti

Looks like Phleps is clearing a one-footer with some graffiti on it- Of course he smokes pot! That man has to consume 12,000 calories a day! Give me a fucking break!

Like I said... know you're doing your job well when people start talking shit about you on the walls. Like when they call you an "Islameg flag". That's harsh.
