Table tennis tagging

A little more than two months since the city installed a new permanent ping-pong table in Tompkins Square Park, someone has tagged it...




We're not always whistle-blower types. But, in this case, we will admit we know who's responsible...

kind of amazing it took this long. If only they had
a sense of art & weren't just adolescent
scribblers.

Don't glorify these jerks who put their name on stuff that's not theirs. Most of us leaned not to do that in kindergarten. Too bad your buddy smurf didn't get the lesson. Not cool.

My hard working super has to repaint the front door several times a year because of assholes like your buddy smurf.

Why are you celebrating this shit?

It's appropriate.
That thing is the worst piece of ghetto-crapitecture I've seen in a while. Maybe now they'll just cart it off and put it in the play area at one of the "Projects" somewhere.

Very sad. I hope they find the culprits and assign them 10 city blocks for gum stain removal via toothbrushes.

It is to be expected, surprised it took this long. compared to the calamities I expect to eventually happen upon this poor table tennis table--excrement, copulation, rape, murder, insufferable art-school project-- this is not so bad.

while it makes me sad that your hard-working super feels the need to paint over it, the fact is that he doesn't HAVE to. reclaim public space! feast our eyes on colors!!!! the outside of the door is for the streets, who cares what it looks like you animal!

Anonymous @ 9:43's comment is either a pretty funny imitation of an annoyingly stupid comment or the real thing, depending on the author's intent.

The Parks Dept has provided this table for everybody to use. Anyone who has ever played ping pong will understand that the douchebag(s) who tagged it have rendered the table mostly unusable.

Damn you Smurfs! This is why I love you Grieve.

Dave - who cares if they had a sense of art? They want to make art, buy a damn canvas. You don't have the right to vandalize property, regardless of whether you have art talent or not.
