i saw this just before jumping onto a trail across the street from burrito union today. nicely played, grafitti artist. and i do mean "artist."

what's the story with the hammer and sickle?! a USSR Hammer fan?
What the?

but now I have that song in my head... sweet.

That is hilarious. That makes my whole day.

mage2001 -- the hammer and the sickle would be a nod to burrito union's theme.

I love Duluth.

If that stop sign were in El Friggin Norte (Blaine), some redneck would have slapped a Dubya '04 sticker on it and popped some caps in it.

Holy crap I love whoever did that.
I would find them and kiss them except I'm pretty sure I will hate them in an hour when that damn song is still in my head.

what i like is that this is obviously the work of someone within a 7-8 year age range of me. perhaps the 39-year-old who wore hammer pants in high school. perhaps a 24 year old who stole an older sister's mc hammer tape and played that song over and over and over [about three years after it was popular.]

regardless, it was not the work of a teen. it had to be the work of a truely hilarious 24-39 year old.

how was your burrito? i miss burritos. you can't get a good burrito to save your life in south florida. apparently cubans don't eat burritos...

Aliecat said...

That is genius at work, right there...

sorry someguy. on this occasion, i didn't actually eat at burrito union. i just hit the trail across the street. but, the past 90 times i've been there, i've enjoyed my burrito quite a bit. granted, i just considered it a head-sized guacamole vessel, but that's me.

much like sushi is a tiny little wasabi vessel.

and fanster, i think the stencil points to the work of an advanced, and uncharacteristically hilarious, scrapbooker.

You beat me to the punch on the "MC Commie" artist. I saw the same thing on the corner 1st E and Michigan and felt encouraged to post...but having the attention span of a raccoon nixed it.
