The Groupon Guide to: Street Art
Although all art is frowned upon by society, only street art wears the double-frown crown of also being illegal. Protect yourself from the rule of law by never, ever creating any of these commonly seen works of street art:
- A little girl holding a flower, except the flower is an army gun and the little girl is mostly a cattle skull
- A name rendered beautifully in giant squishy, stylized letters that make it as impossible to miss as it is to read
- A familiar object we take for granted left outdoors, such as a confrontational expired parking meter or a dog tied to a coffee store
- A peace sign, subversively commenting on your roommate's unfair method of slicing pizzas.
- Picture of the Muppet Babies with the word "Submit" written underneath
- A marine-life mural painted by the irredeemable vandals of Mrs. Holmer's third-grade class at P.S. 109
