We have quite a few lamp posts in the small town I live in. A year ago, they all got a fresh paint job of black matte paint and official stickers that always make me chuckle reading roughly, “Affixing stickers is prohibited!” Apparently, when they were painting them, they noticed how many “flat for sale!” papers had been taped to the posts at eye level and they wanted to stop such defacing of public property. Good on ‘em.

Two days ago, I noticed that one of the lamp posts had been vandalized! It’s unclear to me what the intended goal of the vandal(s) was. Personally, I’m quite happy with the bidirectional reflectance distribution function of the town’s lamp posts. This lamp post does, however, reside on the coolest teenage hangout corner in town. The youngfolk spend hours upon hours sitting sulkily on the steps of this bank.

    Execution is everything, kids! You can do better than this.

    I know that corner! What’s with the warning sign? Sailor hat ahead?

    Betsy should comment after Jane more often. Marge looks quite concerned with that hippo overhead.

    Driving is a real danger around here with all the sailor hats. At least the authorities do a pretty good job of putting up these signs wherever they see one on the road. And don’t even get me started on the cowboy hats!

    perhaps it’s street art? at least it makes a change from the angry political graffiti that springs up around here every day!

    Colindres is delightfully graffiti-free (relatively). Marga’s family, who live in Mondragon, always mention that when they visit.
