The Bea Arthur tag

The "Bad Pussies" mural on the side of Mama's at Third Street and Avenue B (which "passes off a subtle message of yuppicide") has always fascinated me...



...and even more so now with the passing yesterday of NYC native Bea Arthur, who was 86.



...the Bea Arthur tag has been there for as long as I can remember... I just never knew why. I've seen the Bea Arthur tag a few other places around the neighborhood...just can't remember where at the moment.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. V. strange.

Supposedly, the original title of Too Much Joy's [i]Cereal Killers[/i] album was:....

[i]Don't Worry, Bea Arthur[/i]

BAhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

EV needs some new murals, goddammit.

I liked the mural that preceded this one - of the skulls with names of the dead on them. Seems more appropriate now that there should be a Bea Skull. Kittehs have been naughty as they can be, get along now...
