Graffiti is a piece of cake

We are id-iom and we like idioms. There, I’ve said it. Sometimes we’re not quite so literal but today we are and there’s not much you can do about it. Here we have ‘Graffiti is a piece of cake’. Now we all know that ‘a piece of cake’ to mean a very easy task or accomplishment and graffiti to be the act of spray painting a wall. What do you get when you combine the two? You get a nice slice of cake. Plus a small stencilled fly.

In all fairness though painting freehand with spray cans is actually rather difficult. So, in a rather contradictory way I’m going to suggest reading to the end of this post and then forgetting you ever read it. It’ll be better that way. Just retain the image of the nice slice of cake. And try to forget about the fly that’s messing with your cherries. 

As an addendum to today’s post, my research – which consisted of putting the words ‘Graffiti piece of cake’ into Google – revealed the world of graffiti cakes. They’re a thing. Seriously. Check it out yourself. What kind of world do we live in?

Cheers

If the wind changes your face will stay like that!

I’m sure you must of been told this little nugget of information by your parents when you were younger, most probably whilst you were on long car journeys with nothing else to do apart from bickering with you siblings or sticking your head out of the window and letting the wind do its magic.

Sadly this fella had never heard this dire warning and I think we all know what happens next. There he was pulling a funny grimace when the wind whipped up ominously and then changed direction. He was too far away for me to warn him of his impending fate and by the time I’d reached him his face had already stuck in that position. There was little else I could do at that point apart from pat him on the back and wish him the best of luck.
