IBEW Graffiti

This is an angry rant from Portland, OR from the gentleman that helped me land my job in construction management! Not for nothing, but I'll betcha the electrician doesn't give a shit about "destroying my past six months of at-home days off"!

Sounds like someone needs to be working on their resume rather than writing notes!

Thanks KR!!

Graffiti Cock!

I love how the ubiquitous ejaculating cock is situated right below the words,

"Sip Savor and repeat!"

The reason I've titled this post "Graffiti Cock" is because that search query has brought 10 random strangers to my blog. Who knew so many people we're looking for graffiti cocks?!

Olympic Graffiti! NSFW!

*****CORRECTION! Our primary source for the photo of Ms. Dupont is a Norwegian website, not Danish.

You may think that nudey calendars have little to do with construction, but you'd be completely wrong! Hanging in every shanty on a jobsite, there is a little reminder that we work in an environment nearly devoid of estrogen!

Nice work Denmark, you've got your olympians posing nude for the benefit of the Eurpoean CURLING association! OK, you can be sure that NBC helped fetishise icy angles by introducing us to the very cute and wholesome USA women's team four years ago (I'm sure noone imagined them posing for a calendar), and this year by totally forsaking hockey for curling, but you Dansk really helped ahem harden our love for curling!

Thank you J. Matthew for bringing this to our attention!

For you NORWEGIAN speakers...

Hardhat Graffiti

I always had the same problem. I hated faceless faces, so I'd draw a face on them. Someone couldn't help themself.

Porterhouse Graffiti!

Given that we don't get stock options (or the insanely huge bonuses) in the construction industry, we sure do get excited about our career choice when other industries only can buy steak, creamed spinach and a shellfish tower with their bonus!

Frankly, I think this is an AWESOME marketing campaign, and I think that Smith and Wollensky is going to make a ton of money on this. Given their profit margins, they're purchasing stock at option prices from hungry financiers.

Visit Steak for Stock to plug in your ticker symbols to see if your portfolio will net you the halibut.

And to you construction managers out there- here's how you get your steak!

¡Vive Construction Management!

LGA Advertising Graffiti

So Accenture is still kicking themselves for taking a risk on a sure bet, but their Ad scheme sort of predicted the outcome.

Now Jet Blue is advertising in a way that is just offensive enough to take out of context for me! So you put the Nut Dust in the Flavour Ball and roll it around in your mouth until you taste it. Really, guys? Didn't we focus group that one and figure out how someone could take it out of context?

Local 78!

This ain't no union rat! This is much more extreme. The Laborers Union Local 78 set up a coffin on Broadway, just south of the Fulton Street Subway construction, with a poster demonstrating the dangers of absestos. Everyone on the street was stopping to take pictures and read the sign- definitely an attention grabber!

Back into the gutter!

Good to see that my New Year's Resolution wasn't to clean it up a bit. Grand Taint Plaza is funny, but since this was created using "Wet Paint" signs, wouldn't "Wet Taint" be slightly more offensive?

Just sayin'

Vintage Construction Graffiti

This certificate must be a little bit old since the "2004" is written on the actual sheet of paper. Lena, I recommend taking the stairs! In the meantime, look for Tiny Furniture's worldwide premier at SXSW this year!

Way to go Kennebunkport!

This is a BEAUTIFUL feat of engineering. Poor Daytrip Society has to look at this all day long! Do them a favour and check out their online store!

My worst enemy!

You can't stop all of them. Especially now that we're starting a new job! Keep an eye out for new posts!
