    We Need To Talk About The Graffiti In Canada, Guys

    "FUCK THE SYSTEM." But call your mother back first.

    So. By now you must know there is a longstanding internet joke about *~Canadian graffiti~*.

    And that even our vandalism is inoffensive, and cordial, and mild-mannered. Har har har — we get it.

    But these are just lazy stereotypes and overused punchlines, right? RIGHT?!


    In a quest to find unapologetically hxc and senseless lewd graffiti to debunk this silly joke, I realized we are very much a self-prophesying meme:

    From Vancouver...

    To Saskatoon...

    Over to Winnipeg...

    And Toronto (EVEN TORONTO)...

    Et même pour le Québec! Où ils correctent le vandalisme! En français!

    Ou peut être juste a bunch of English-speaking Canadians polluting their turf with uplifting messages.

    Regardless... Sure, OK, this whole "Canadian graffiti" stereotype may be true.

    Thanks, Newfoundland.

    Yes, we know it's you.

    But we don't need to stunt or front: We are defacing property with a purpose. SO RESPECT, EH!

    Accept each other. Sorry about your wall.
