Caveman Tweets

Kids, of course you know what Twitter and Facebook is, but did you know that before they existed the only way people could spread their important messages was by writing it down on bathroom stall doors?

I discovered this one today in a coffee shop restroom here in town.

Ernie loves white bread.


It was like a stroll down memory lane back to the good old days when no-one heard of Atkins and spending time in front of the computer meant writing 10 PRINT “BOOBS”; 20 GOTO 10; RUN.

I loved the message and laughed out loud in my seat.

Does anyone know WHO this Ernie is?

But more importantly: Is Ernie on Twitter??

    There’s a bar I frequent that encourages graffiti (in chalk) everywhere. It can be benign- often, college students will put their class year and university name up. It can be hipster chic, like the “What Would Voltron Do” graffiti. And it can be crass (and hilarious). They have some speakers in the back room that can’t be reached flat-footed. My friend dragged a chair over there and drew a giant yellow chalk penis on the side of the speaker. It stayed up for at least six years, and even then it only disappeared because the chalk had faded.
