A couple years ago, I did a post on textbook defacing, which ended up being pretty fun. I think we're due for another spotlight on an anonymous book defacer slash (/) budding comedian. The humor is about as juvenile as it comes, but I think that's what gives it such charm.
This one comes from a 1982 yearbook. Whoever the mysterious graffiti firebrand is, I'd love to give him a high-five for his wonderfully hilarious douchebaggery littering nearly every page.
I've obliterated any last names to preserve the innocent, and the name of the school I'll leave anonymous as well. So, let's check out some high school yearbook shenanigans. I will warn you, however; don't expect an underground Oscar Wilde. "Slut School" (pictured above) may be his finest work.
Although I don't know this young man from Adam, I must admit that I share the defacer's opinion. This guy does look like a dick.
Ah, the old beard and mustache graffiti - timeless.
"We want you Mike" - At last, a clue to our defacer's identity.... and his egomania.
"I wish Dina was sitting on my face." Nice. Like I said, he's no Oscar Wilde. But as far as yearbook defacing goes, our Mike is quite the wordsmith.
This is actually from the school play of "Diary of Anne Frank".... making this perhaps Mike's most tasteless work. But remember, a true artist knows no boundaries.
"Me? Wow!" Could this be our secret scribbler, Mike? Hmmm. He doesn't look the type, and reading his entire works, it's obvious he's a big athlete. I don't think this is him, but you never know.
Is this Mike being a complete jerk, or is he being playful? The beauty of his work, like a Pollack or Picasso, is that it can be interpreted in so many ways.
And finally, perhaps his most profound work. "The Future is Ours..... Whose?" Whose, indeed. Bravo, Mike.
It's a pity he couldn't resist inscribing "ugly" on that girl. Alas, his artistic temperament rears its ugly head once again.
