    Nice comic.

    Some of my most profound moments come from being on the john, or when I'm in the shower. I guess the bathroom is just a magical place.

    heh, I have this fascination with bathroom graffiti. Some of it is hateful and emotional, some is pointless and then some is like a message that hits you when you least expect it!

    Wow indeed.

    I guess these messages are always there, and its up to us to choose to pay attention to one or the other -- after all, "Jess" could have been sitting there, wondering why it is someone says she sucks...

    (tho in the last frame it looks like "Joss" sucks; I thought maybe it was a dig at Joss Stone)

    Yay! A new comic! I love your comix M!

    Some of my greatest realizations come while on the toilet as well. I swear that the Buddha was on the toilet when he become self-realized. What's this crap about sitting under a tree? :)

    phil - I know! A bit of graffiti that is poignant!

    jay - in reality the only bit of graffiti was the one I read - the toilets were pretty clean otherwise, which is funny for public ones. It was hard to miss - but it's like anything I guess, it's what you notice.

    dan - maybe trees were toilets before toilets were invented!!!!?

    When I was at uni, I used to collect bathroom graffiti and those etched on desks in lecture theatres. No idea what I did with them!

    chicky - ME TOO!! The uni toilets are ripe with angry, emotional and political messages - so interesting. It also depended on which toilets you went to. The Arts toilets were always full of politcal messages, as were the psych/biol not so much, the architecture - nope, English - hell yes. My friend S and I always wanted to do a book with toilet graffiti in it. But I guess it's a niche market. heh. I would love to dress up as a boy and go scout all the boys toilets to see how their graffiti differs.

    Hey, maybe one of you boys out in cbg land could take a few photos and send them to me! Go on!

    If you like bathroom graffiti, then you should check out Off the Wall at Callahan's by Spider Robinson. It's all bathroom graffiti (though it's semi-fictional, I believe).

    danke!

    That was... sublime in a cosmic sort of way. An interesting twist on the theme :) Who knew gods spoke through public toilets?

    thanks :) And yes, you're right. Who knew?!

    see? the dunny wall never lies. IT. NEVER. LIES!

    my thoughts exactly!

    I too love the bathroom art. Is a blogger attempting to lift your spirits in the middle picture?

     
  • At 6:56 PM, Blogger M said…

    lol, well bloggers DO tend to lift my spirits, but that was truly a bit of graffiti on the bathroom wall. No kidding!

    Okay, here's an embarrassing confession Mez. I thought the middle shot was a woman in front of a computer. I thought those were the tops of her glasses and not the back of her head. Please don't hate me for this.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH oh jesus, time for me to take drawing lessons!! :p Course I don't hate you for it!

    It's not your fault, it's mine. I wasn't looking as closely as I should've been. I'm sure you need art lessons like I need swim lessons.

    Toilet wall grafiti is the only reason I still go to uni. Do you ever do little sketches on the toilet wall?
