I recently saw this piece of graffiti in Bristol, and thought I had photographed it, except there was no memory card in my camera. It took me a moment to figure out, but once I did, I thought it totally brilliant. Why can't we all do this? The world would be so much the better for it.

There are examples of it in Prague (on the John Lennon wall), on Bono, as a car bumper sticker, in lights and as a stencil. You can wear it as adornment
or a patch and you can have the T-shirt. You can discover the meaning of the symbols and find variations.

However, I think we should all just do it, especially as the last link suggests.

Sue, I hadn't seen this before and I quite agree with you - it is clever (as is the variation on your last link).

Such a simple concept but challenging for some and impossible for a few, sadly.

Thanks for sharing.

I quite agree with the sentiments expressed in your graffiti.
Wouldn't it be lovely if we all allowed others to express their opinions and didn't assume we were right and everyone else was wrong?
The American humorist Dave Barry put it very well when he said, "If someone wants to talk to you about his religion, sure as hell he doesn't want to hear about yours......."
