Don’t F with Us

This is one of my first finds. I picked it up off the sidewalk outside of my high school sometime around ’92. I remember there was a fire drill that day. I put this in a photo album I’ve kept for all these years.

Like a Bud in the Carpet

I found this sitting on a trashcan at a supermarket. I’m not really sure what to make of it, other than a) the author fancies himself something of a rapper and b) he smokes a good deal of pot. (Note the “bud the in the carpet” line, not to mention the telling shopping list on … Continued
