39 Times Vandalism Was Wholesome And Hilarious

Vandalism is bad unless it’s done by clever people. No one wants to see weird dirty thoughts etched into a toilet stall. We would, however, love to see some funny writing on a passive-aggressive note or a silly message covering up a street sign or two.

Not all vandals are created equal. Banksy, for instance, is sending messages of hope or speaking truth to power. You spray painting your name on a playground or sticking a hand in wet cement is not creative or fun or wholesome. If you want to know the right way to make vandalism into art, look no further than this post.

I hope these photos inspire you to make your own wholesome art.

Here are examples of when vandalism made something better:

Speaking of law enforcement, it’s important to note that vandalism is a felony if you deface something valuable enough. If it’s the side of a brick building, you’re probably safe. If it’s the Lincoln Memorial, better find that orange vest because you’re about to be picking up trash by the highway.
