Across the street from my apartment are some very high-end stores. One sells designer clothes and shoes for men, its neighbor sells design furniture. I don’t know if that’s the reason, but there is a graffiti artist who scratches all kinds of things on the wall between the two.
Now I’m all for graffiti, when it’s done in a nice way. I know some graffiti artists are true artists. The artwork they leave on old decrepit walls is amazing. I can also see that there are people who want to share their opinions with the world. Please do! But I don’t get graffiti that don’t seem to have any meaning.
Now this thing across the street, for instance, it says: ‘MC FOF’. Since I have to look at it all day I’d like to know what it means, so I googled it. Nobody knows. It must be an inside thing. It’s very funny and creative the ideas people come up with though. They try to work it out. ‘McFries Or Fanta’, MasterChef Fish or Fries’, ‘MacFast Or Fart’, anyway, nobody seems to get to the answer of this mystery.
I have an inkling it’s in the English language. So I’ve also tried my best to solve this puzzle. I’m inclined to look for FOF in the direction of ‘Fight or Flee’ , or ‘Freedom or Fight’, something like that. But the MC? And maybe I couldn’t be more wrong with my FOFs. I would really like to know though. So, anybody acquainted with (or maybe being a) graffiti artist? Please let me know, ’cause it’s driving me crazy.
Again, I know what it’s like to have an itch to share your thoughts with the rest of mankind. I have a few requests though. Since you’re being such an artistic and creative person, why don’t you put your text on a T-shirt or hang a poster up in you window. Instead of writing on somebody else wall. I mean, they will only wash it off again. What’s the fun in that?
And then when you do share something let us know what it is you want to share. Please. How can you want to get something out there that nobody understands. I fail to see the sense in all that. But maybe I’ve got it all wrong. Maybe that’s just what it’s meant to be. Nonsense.
