Cowart's Common Room
An Amusing Graffito

Just read Rosie's recommendations about books for narrow boats and narrow dogs and the killer fish they feet on the way. If the books are as good as Rosie's commentary they must be most excellent. But they put me in mind of a piece of vandalism that I saw this evening in the river Thaw in Cowbridge. Some barely literate person had found a square piece of waterlogged board and a can of paint and had written 'DANGER PIRANHAS' and then thrown the board into the river so that it was visible to everyone crossing the bridge that connects the two sides of our main park. Because the writing on the sign is difficult to understand - and made more difficult by it being below the water - you stand on the bridge trying to figure it out and then it hits you: Danger Piranhas and, if you are me, it makes you laugh and you go on your way uplifted. Would like to have had a picture but I suspect the underwater object in the dark and turbulent water wouldn't photograph well and I didn't have my camera anyway.

Faith's Avatar I suppose that might have made me smileSmile The other day in the supermarket when I went to weigh my fruit, the machine was not working, and someone had blu-tacked a piece of paper with Out of Order on it..... and I was irritated til I saw they had added a 'smiley' and the words 'Be happy'.

There is one on a bus stop here that says...
"Jamie is a pedofile"
which has scrawled underneath it...
"What - he likes bikes?"Laughing

I think feet would be more appropriate but I liked his thinking.
