Huh ?

There is really no way for this post to exist without my being a  tiny bit indelicate, so you will have to bear with me.

   Sometimes, when I am at work, I need to use the bathroom.And of the times that I have to use the bathroom, sometimes  I need to...Um...."drop the kids in the pool", if you know what I mean. And I think that you do.

  For the last few weeks, whenever I enter the stall to "take the Browns to the Super Bowl", I am greeted by this on the back of the stall door:   I SUCK DICK.

   It's a little bit faded, and smudged, because someone half-assedly (no pun intended) tried to clean it off, but it's still easily readable.

  Now, here's my question about this: What's the point ? Is it a confession (either that they perform fellatio, or an admission to someone named Dick that the confessor  sucks ) ?

  Is it an attempt to trick me into thinking that I suck dick ? Was writing it in the first person an attempted ruse? Am I supposed to look at it, read it and ask:  "Do I ?"

  I just don't know why someone would write this. Some  bathroom stall/wall graffiti I understand. I get the little rhymes and puns and such("Here I sit, brokenhearted.Tried to shit, but only farted" and so forth). Even casting espursions onto some else's character(For a good time call So and So)...That I understand. I don't agree with it, or condone it, but at least I understand the motivation.

  I just don't understand the motivation for this.It's just written in plain black ink, no stylish flourish to the lettering or anything. No real artistic value to it.

  It's just odd.

You know, there used to be a certain elegance to bathroom stall graffiti. Remember the "God is dead - Nietzsche" scribbling followed by "Nietzsche is dead - God". Now that was class.

Now it's all dick and shit jokes.
