More Groutfiti

See original post (http://maboswell.blogspot.com/2011/03/grout-phenomenon.html) for context.

I’ve had ample opportunity to gather more grout scrawlings on the bathroom walls of the SEM 2 building at The Evergreen State College. A quick list:

  • Grout of bounds
  • Grout, grout, let it all grout, these are things I can do with grout!
  • This is Major Tom to Grout Control
  • Some are born grout
  • The Groutuate
  • Coming grout of the closet
  • You know you make me want to grout!
  • Salad w/groutons
  • Groutational Symmetry
  • Groutful Muthaf***in Dead
  • That’s Groutrageous!
  • The Grout Depression
  • Groutuity included in check
  • Be the grout you wish to see in the world
  • Hansel and Grout-el
  • Down and Grout
  • The Groutest Story Ever Told
  • Who let the dogs grout? (Grout…grout…grout, grout)
  • Groutesque
All for now. I'm grout.

this term has now made Urban Dictionary as accepted new word:

October 23,2011: Groutfiti

A form of graffiti. It involves writing in the tiny space of grout in between tiles in public toilets. The phrases always are made up of some pun using the word grout. Other examples include movie titles, like "The grout, the bad, and the ugly" or simple words, like "groutrageous."

This type of graffiti has no deep meaning, but it is a great example of intellectual fun. It makes sense that it exists primarily around Universities where people are intelligent, yet very young and therefore still trying to amuse themselves and others by doing things like writing on walls. It all starts when one person makes one of these grout puns and it is seen by another student who, while urinating, who then thinks of another pun and writes it on another section of grout. Soon the "groutfiti" spreads and people spontaneously think of puns while pissing.
"Thrre stikes and you're grout"
"The Grout Gatsby"
"The Grout Barrier Reef"
"The Groutain of Youth"
