Stalling in the Stall


There are many mediums of expression: writing, singing, dancing, blogging, painting, the list goes on and on. But we at 4E would like to expose the world to the most cutting edge and hip new medium for getting ones thoughts or comedic impulses out there. Say hello to the bathroom wall. For the past month or so, I’ve had the entire Hoya staff on lookout for the best bathroom stall scribbles they could find. Here are some of the best!

Thankfully, there are people who use bathroom stall to share some advice:


Or use it to correct other’s advice:

YOU ARE NOT ALONE: Except in here, you're alone in here.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE: Except in here, you’re alone in here.

While others use the bathroom wall to express serious environmental concerns as seen below in this beautiful drawing. (Question…why is the tree wearing a shirt?)



Or maybe they use existing graffiti to make IR puns to display their intellectuality as well as their creativity:


Speaking of puns, take a look at these awesome grout jokes. Famous literature and America’s favorite past time meet the classiness of the grout above the White Gravenor urinals.

But while the people above use the stall for humor, the people below use it for their pensive and poetic thoughts. I would imagine that the desired effect would be to make the reader feel introspective, but all it makes me think about is how long the person must have spent writing this…don’t you have other things to do?

And then there are those who combine comedy with poetry:

A haiku: Oh Lau, I loathe now pooping in Lau it smells oh so gross

    Nice post! I wonder what was on the person’s mind why that tree is wearing a shirt.
