Punx???

Click photo to enlarge

This is graffiti at the Dizengoff fountain. When I saw it I couldn't help laughing though as I totally had a "Life of Brian" moment. There's a scene in Monty Python's "Life of Brian" where he writes "Romans go home" on a wall. Next thing a Roman guard comes out and catches him but instead of shouting at him for telling the Romans to go home the guard starts giving Brian a Latin lesson and showing him that his grammar is incorrect. The guard then demands that Brian rewrite the sentence out 100 times so that he can learn the grammar. It's really funny! And I felt like that Roman guard when I saw this sentence. If I ever catch the little punks....

Thanks for visiting me on theme day. I have been out of computer contact and unable to comment on others.

What can I say? The photograph captured the evil deed but your narrative captured my emotions and I ended up with a big smile across my face. Nice job.

Such a beautiful fountain, a shame to see it defiled. I did smile at your Life Of Brian moment.

It's interesting to see what people around the world do with my beautiful (well ok, curious) language...

I speak from experience because I teach it and I've heard a few disasters in my time.

All the best from Paris, where we have a new president, you might have heard, and he isn't a woman!
