Bold new statement – “I am an A Hole”

This recently discovered tagger, apparently going by A-Hole, appears to be posing quite the interesting challenge to our collective moral judgement. This simple statement, straight and to the point, gilded even, is all at once a pure proclamation of existence (a caveman’s hand on the cave wall), an exclamation of artistic relevance (applied with an assumption of importance, that is without permission, and to a highly trafficked area) and finally a rebuke and rejection of the original motivations for its very existence. The A inside the circle being a clear representation of an “A Hole”, standing in for @$$#ø¬∑ which stands in for “ass hole”, builds an inherent impenetrable wall against any outside criticism. You don’t appreciate this? Well it’s too late to sound off, the artist has already made judgement on him or herself! Your opinion is inert.

Well done, asshole.

    Love it. Perfect satire of the street-art scene. (Sincerity. Really.)

    And notice how the artist chose gold paint for this particular symbol, perhaps in an attempt at subtle commentary on the relative privilege and financial security such “A Holes” have no doubt experienced in their early lives.

    I choose to believe this is a subtle reference to the anarchy symbols that we would draw in Sharpie on our Trapper Keepers in 9th grade, because we were SO FUCKING PUNK ROCK.

    Oh, golly, you sure showed that darn crummy ol’ anarchist what for, buster! I’m sure he’s duly chastened and will, like, ruminate long and hard about the error of his ways and shit. Another job well done by the hipster morality police!

    run your hands over your dog’s back and see if you can feel his ribs. if you cannot, your dog is overweight. if there is a layer of fat over the ribs, but you can still feel them, then he is not overweight. years of research have gone into the world of weight loss solutions and we used all the data we could find to device this system. very early in our studies we found that special diet incoperated for a certain type of gym routine was the way forward. high carbohydrate, isometric, food combining, food seperating, high protein, ketogenic are just the few types of diets we combined with work out routines. . if you have certain health conditions, such as glaucoma or high blood pressure you should consult your doctor before you begin having any diet pills. you must not mix with other weight loss diet pills. although, diet pills are recommended for a short-term treatment i.e. six to twelve weeks. it has also been shown in studies to remain effective in a 36-week trial.
