QUOTD: Graffiti edition

I was walking on the second floor of Hunter west building when I saw a swastika written in thick black marker on one of the elevator doors. An elderly gentlemen on observing the same said.


"Oh my g-d... that swastika is backwards what an asshole!"

"Oh my g-d... that swastika is backwards what an asshole!"

Let me get this straight, this guy was more concerned that the swastika was backward instead of the fact that it was there?

WTF? the problem is that it was there, not that it was backward.

(Of course, swastikas have not always had evil associated with them. Here's a little reading material:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika)

I'll be honest. I'm freaked out by the swastika.

He was being sarcastic sweetie. Of course thats not the important part, but it did take a way from the affect from the shock of seeing it. It's kind of like if you saw a bear driving a car and a guy says "Oh my g-d that bear isn't wearing a seatbelt." get it?

Like when those white power freaks didn't like your site and then I kept correcting their grammar on their message boards. Sometimes, a response only validates their point.

Wow Dina, the separation between you and Randy is getting more and more blurry every day. It just seems that there should be a 'u' with the 'q'.
And Alison, the guy was being sarcastic. In that he was jokingly making the wrong comment. The right thing to say would have been "Wow, a swastika. That's messed up," or something else to that effect. However, that comment would have been obvious and perhaps cliché. So in maybe in an attempt to add a little levity to the scene, he got creative and pointed out a less obvious aspect of the situation, that the swastika in question was going counter-clockwise rather than clock-wise as is the custom with the swastika used by Nazi Germany. DOES EVERYBODY UNDERSTAND NOW?

Nah, there totally shouldn't be a U there.

I should establish a board for QOTD's and elect myself chairperson (since I'm founder, anyway) and we'd do quality control. Given, this is an awesome quote. But alas, that U is SO distracting!
