      Masturbating while thinking of your mother is so 1990.

  • The_Stif

    #1 aint no lie. These are all awesome.

    • Mike

      To be perfectly honest…#1 is exaggerated and smacks of lefty insanity……

      With the exception of the "screaming fire in a crowded theater" example (as in things that endanger the public welfare) you are absolutely allowed to speak your mind in this country.

      If you think your right to free speech is oppressed, remember there are countries where Keith Olberman, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart and everyone else who likes to publicly criticize the government would have been executed a long time ago for acts of sedition against the state….

      You're still allowed to voice your opinion in this country. Whether your opinion has any real weight is another issue altogether.

      The First Amendment unfortunately protects those WBC asshats who like to picket at the funerals of dead servicemen. Remember that the next time you feel like bitching about the govt. denying your right to free speech.

        Whoa, sorry to awaken your slumber Buzz Killington. I play my part in this shitty game called lower middle class life, so i feel that I have the ability to bitch in general. You may not agree with my statement, even though it was light-hearted (I understand tone and sarcasm are hard to detect in a comment thread), but I did say it, and things like that are said all of the time on this site. I am sorry for rattling your cage, but you may want to avoid hanging around if things like that do get your stirred up. No sarcasm or hatred intended, just using my first amendment rights here.

    #27 clears up that question…white with black stripes 🙂

  • carl

    if you dig this stuff, make sure to check out Banksy's "Exit through the Gift Shop" film

    • qwert

      fuckin awesome movie…

      • Ciggy~Num~Num

        good film….also google the film about ROBO and BANKSY. it will make you think twice about BANKSY…..the whole movie is on Vimeo..i just forget the name.

        • carl

          thanks, i found it here… called graffiti wars

          • DrROBOTO

            I dunno about exit through gift shop….its kinda sad.i think it shows how mr. douchebag bit off of banksys style and made a lot of money doing it, and did it for moneys sake not so much for the thrill and concept of displaying awesome ideas through art in illegal means…Its cool how that guy doesnt rat on banksy for the disneyland thing, and how he appears to love doing it on the street first,but if you notice banksy's attitude toward the end its more like amused disgust at the fact that he churns out all that art fast and without much thought and then sells everything in art venues and doesnt do any street pieces at all..

            • gravella

              i think you missed the point

  • chicago

    Meh post. …its missing some Chivettes spraying paint on stuff.

    • nekked

      • asdf

        dont know whay youre getting thumbs down… i would actually LOVE to see that
        especially on a humpday..
        humpday body-paint special??

  • Logan

    #5 I think I'll paint that in my room someday.

  • MMA-blows

    #30 Is badass

    • Unfkngblvbl

      a lot of effort for some graffiti, but bad-ass nonetheless, if it's real.

    • EZRA2

      Im a graffiti artist and there is no way dude made is 'S' look like that with a maker or a spray can. makers have two consistionces and spray can flare and if youre a really good graffiti writer then you wont get any drips. Its shopped, but very well done too.

      • MEEEE

        yeah use tineye to search the image, def shopped

      • John

        You see an "S" in that mess? What does it even say?

        • EZRA2

          Im not to sure but I think it says "sick'

    • Woody

      Makes me dizzy, looking down from that high up.

      • Hey...

        Lower your chair.

      • CNG

        uggh, STFU please faggot.

      • Capt Obvious

        That tag is doing no harm. I'm sure not one single person outside of those involved even knew that was there before pic's were posted. Hell, most people are nose deep in there triple espresso, half whip, end around double whammy burger and jumbo fat fries, blathering away on their smart phone whilst they drive to and from their mundane 9-5 jobs to be bothered with some artist putting his mark on that "Landmark" you most likely take for granted. I envy the fearlessness he showed, and the view he certainly enjoyed. If it is real, I mean.

        • Unzippedshark

          You are right domshooter, that bay was a beautiful landmark,
          The bridge is the vandalism

  • manchakattack

    #28 is sooo beautiful.

    • Jobiwan

      I took that at the street art exhibit in Los Angeles.. It was huge almost 30 ft tall. It’s banksy. I can email you a high quality copy if you want

      • https://www.facebook.com/katelyn.manchak Katelyn Manchak

    • SanDiego

  • asdf

    #27 except zebras are black with white stripes

    • Billy

      Nice try………………

    • Craigery

      Really? Next you're going to tell me you can't actually remove the stripes and hang them on a line…

  • SenorWilson

    #12 I GET IT!

    • Rrrrrandy

      I don't… why is that chimp holding an Obama mask?

      • THIS IS MADNESS!!!

        Awww… That was funny I don't know why you are getting thumbs down. Bush got ripped on all the time it's how I'm going to remember him whether he is considered good or bad 10 years down the road.

    • Billy

      I wish I didn't.

    • mouchette


    • Katie

      Please explain

      • guy

        Bush and Obama are the same person. They both were picked to win and both played their role

    • Ryan

  • Stan_Dalone

    #26 Pretty sure this is a Banksy ripoff. Doesn't look quite like his work

    • Chuck Testa


      This was in Central Square in Cambridge, MA. It was a real Banksy…until they power washed it off.

  • Chelios

    #27 is really cool

  • Master_Rahl

    #2 there's a fine line between genius and insanity. This is pretty cool… but nuts

  • Master_Rahl

    #4 #10 Both full of awesome. I love me some old school games. The greats.

  • Craigery

    #14 Clever idea, terrible execution. Don't try to do street art if you have no artistic ability.

  • il tedesco

    #19 u can see paintings like that in nearly every spanish city

  • A BiPolar Guy

    #22 – There is no fate but what we make, but I fear we (all mankind) are making the wrong thing fast.

  • StormChaser
