This just in! Radiohead Graffiti! UPDATE

UPDATE: Apparently this is a lie. Nice, protesters, your lies are worse than the lies that you allege the bankers used to 'take all of our money'

Radiohead is playing a free show at the Occupy Wall Street Rally at Zucotti Plaza at 4pm.

Co-Worker JG says: "No permits, it's going to be fucking nuts."

Who's going to check it out?

Rick Perry Graffiti!

OH man. This is the most fantastic construction graffiti photoshop job I've seen in awhile. Apparently this has been around for awhile, but I borrowed the photo from The PENISto Review (Which despite the name is a totally safe for work site)

Here's the photo that the tricksters modified.

Best caption of the day by TJC: "Unsure how corn got on the dog in the first place, Perry was adamant on cleaning it off."

Don't worry Rick, Pooh is in the same boat as you right about now. Thanks Happy Place.

Excel Graffiti!

Those Scandinavians sure put the FUN in function!

Who knew that this website even existed? Or that a Scandinavian copy of Microsoft Office looks like high school bathroom graffiti to an English speaker!

Thanks for 'liking' the website, DK!

Gadhafi Graffiti!

REUTERS/Chris Wattie

Amazing. This guy has always spoken the language of Construction Graffiti, nearly as fluently as Iron Mike! The Seattle Post Intelligencer put together an amazing collage of graffiti depicting the Libyans first attempts at free speech!

I'll have to say, this isn't some cock drawing scribbled inbetween bites of a sandwich looking over their shoulder to make sure they don't get caught- these people took some time!

Gadhafi: "Please can I sleep at your place?"
Satan: "I am fed up with you, this is your last night!"

Carrot Top Graffiti

A couple years back, Tesco came out with a holiday card poking fun at our fairer friends. There was a severe backlash (likely from the ginger community who hasn't come to terms with the fact they have red hair) and the card was pulled from the shelves.

Since, ginger discrimination has been poo-pooed by the populace until today when the world's largest sperm bank, Cryos said, "No more redheads!"

What's this guy going to do?!

Um. Two comments.

1. Thank you Cryos.
2. It's likely this 'man' can no longer reproduce anyway.

Taint Graffiti

How did this one slip past me? Nice find, GJ.

Recession Graffiti

They taste like Foie Gras.

Best part is, they forcefeed themselves!

(Thanks for the photo, LZ!)

Hong Kong Banksy

Through the Looking Glass found this great piece of construction graffiti, where the artist threw a pair of horns on a very popular construction sign in Hong Kong.

While we're in Hong Kong, I spotted this great bit of Engrish on a recent layover there.

"A shop or restaurant where pizzas are made and sold is called a 'pizzeria'

The phrase 'pizza parlor' is also used in the United States."

It's hilarious that all their advertising copy came straight out of a Berlitz language program, but to be perfectly honest, they absolutely nailed it with the Italian food.

Fulton Street Graffiti

I got to take a peek under the skirt of the new Fulton Street Transit Center today - one of the contractors left the door open just long enough to snap a photo. Looking nice with the light blue glass subway tiles and the lighting on the ceiling! I wonder what's going into the channels along either side?

Lets just hope they don't spell Broadway wrong again! Whoops! Broda-Way! (previously)

That Wabbit is back at it!

Fashion Week Graffiti

Have you ever dared to say this? Noone really knows who Banksy is, so he'll say it for you!

My friend RA found this piece of construction graffiti near his law firm. Check him out if you need a business attorney!

Harold and Kumar Graffiti

This is always a welcome site to these guys.

Probably not as welcome as this bit of Engrish that I found!

Bridge Graffiti!

Now this is genius. The bridge goes up, and the graffiti cock is erect.

This guy's got a great blog. You can imagine my trepidation when going to the link "gorilla cock" on my work computer! Turns out it's just photos of graffiti cocks, which are much safer for the workplace!

Frank Graffiti

Don't Throw things in FRANK!

This guy has a great blog- it's all graffiti from inside Porta-Potties.

Check it out!

Designer Graffiti

Since the construction guys don't usually have a printer at their disposal, and the normal retort is "You're Gay" or "Your Mom" or a cock drawing (usually the most effective comeback) I wanted to share a good smart-alec retort. My friend DD put this up on her Facebook- When I asked if it were in her office she said -

"No - thank god. If any of the other designers I worked with used comic sans, we would have to have a talk."

Looking good WTC

I lived in DC 10 years ago, and I'm living in NYC now. It's still hard to believe that these attacks actually happened. I felt like I was living in a terrible movie when I saw the plumes of smoke rising from the Pentagon when I was standing on my roof.

Here's to all the innocent people who lost their lives 10 years ago in DC and NYC.

Here's to all of our soldiers at home and abroad who've dedicated their lives to fighting for our freedom.

Here's to all those who've perished in combat.

It may have taken awhile to get to this point, but we're almost there.

At least we killed the most important one.

9-11 Memorial Signage

All the Subway signage in downtown changed overnight to guide the hundreds of thousands of visitors estimated to visit the 9-11 memorial.

The MTA should hire these guys to work on the 2nd avenue subway so we can have it ready before the 20th anniversary of 9-11!

Or we could just call this guy for one of his slightly inappropriate quotes...

"You guys in New York can’t get a hole in the ground fixed and it’s five years later. So let’s be fair."
-- Mayor Ray Nagin


Look out for the RATS!

What's new MTA?

You're still pissing people off.

While you're at it, you missed a sign. Maybe stop harassing this guy and get your signs up to date.

The birds and the bees.

If you have trouble giving your child "the talk" just show them this amazing illustration. Ignore that most of the illustrations are unhappy and that it is drawn on a box filled with broken glass.

Recession, Double Dipped.

Two ice cream trucks at the top of Wall Street? Now that's a heavy handed metaphor.

At least some people are still doing okay.

That's my kind of rich! Blow the money on the Lamborghini, but don't have enough to garage it, wash it, or even move it! Looks like this one hasn't moved in weeks!

It's Friday!

"You ain't got shit to do, you ain't got no job"

Dope fiend on the job wants you to get him high! Don't do it by yourself!

Celeb Graffiti

The Real Deal reports that Jeremy Piven just picked up Mike Piazza's old Tribeca pad.

From PCU to Entourage, this guy has always come through Construction Graffiti approved.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same about Mike Piazza, but I can about another former Met! Fucking Lenny Dykestra just don't quit!

From the amazing GQ story about Lenny's pro athlete magazine The Player's Club,

To his recent (April) arrest for STEALING HIS OWN $50,000 GRANITE SINK that was at risk of being taken in bankruptcy proceedings an installing it in an office he set up,

To last Thursday's arrest for interviewing personal assistants and housekeepers from Craigslist and then exposing himself once they arrived!

The only person more Construction Graffiti might be Iron Mike

Or this guy who has bailed Lenny out of Jail!

Charlie, I think you need to teach Lenny that winning attitude!!

Schedule is tight!

That means people start talking shit. More to follow!
