Brian’s snapped this hopper in Watson.

The real question surely is whether good citizens can spell?

Some thing to print out, pin up and annoy the supervisor about… I think that it is cute!

I’ll give the fellow credit for starting the sentence with a capital letter and the apostrophe on ‘don’t’. Marks off for sloppy can lettering and the obvious spelling mistake. C+

Nothing ironic about it at all. Some bogan vandal defaces someone else’s property – is it surprising that they’re illiterate?

Way back when my (now having moved on after a midnight flit) bogan neighbours kept stealing my and other neighbours wheelie bins. After a late night hostage recovery, I painted my house number on every exterior vertical surface of my wheelie bin and it stayed in its designated area.

As its sort of my property, am I tagging my own bin ? If the bin pictured above is the property of the painter, is it considered graffiti ?

It’s just some retard that can’t spell and think they’re clever.

Umm,,,looks like some kid got a spray can and had nothing better to do with it.
Just calling every silly kid a retard isn’t really being a grown up.
Might I add you comment about the kids spelling then ask people to check yours..

Maybe the courts/police should grab the next kid found shop-lifting (or similar) and make him/her scrub the graffiti off and repaint.

Given this person is obviously not a good citizen, by their own admission, then I don’t think we have enough data yet.
