Alternative graffiti

I smile eveytime I look at this photo.

Firstly, this graffiti is so kiddy, and my imagination of some kindergarten kids sneaking out at night to draw it makes me laugh. Secondly, there is a local story behind -- China Motor Bus was a very unpopular company and the graffiti shows just how bad the service was: rude drivers, skipping stops and reckless driving. The government terminated its licence some years ago and it is now history. (click for more photos)

I hope you will find this amusing as much as I do...LOL.

It's not very often you can have the history behind a piece of graffiti. Your commentary made it much more interesting that way.

Hi Lisi,

I think the drawings are more sophisticated after the story-it adds to the interest.

"...rude drivers, skipping stops and reckless driving..." so, I don't see the problem. Isn't that how everybody drives? I'm sure Rome would agree with me that doesn't seem so strange. LOL

I think Eric has a point there! I like the drawing, though, I think it's a great idea! Thanks for showing it to us!

those graffiti was nicely done, looks like they ain't the works of just hooligans, but rather, artist.

Kinda miss the days of CNB, with their hard wooden seats =P Well well First Bus isn't much better I guess~
