Graffiti is a part of any modern campus. It varies slightly from place to place but not really in tone. It can be quiet intimidating. Now I am not that easily intimidated. I mean some years ago when I was threatened to be stabbed in Limerick. I was not intimidated. True it was 8am on a Saturday morning and my would be stabber was cycling a bike with stabilisers up William Street and was only about 8. But still it was Limerick he probably had a knife.
But in trinity I saw possibly the most intimidating thing I have ever seen graffitied. I mean I have been in Bathrooms in NUIG where I was told by arrows pointing at the bottom of the cubicle door to "Beware of limbo dancing Midgets". In Queens in Belfast I was told stuff like the UVF will kill all Fenians
However Trinity tops all that for the sheer hatred and connotations of violence visited upon my person. Shivers ran down my spine as I read
"you smell like a fool"
The image of D4 types seems to plague every college. Didn't Kevin Myers go to UCD? Griffith College is another one with a reputation for D4 types. I'm not sure about DCU, they might not have many D4 types seeing as it's on the Northside but you never know...
I was threated with being stabbed by a 5 or 5 year old in Limerick once (in O'Malley Park). When I smiled with wry indulgence down at him, I realised the little fucker actually had a stanley knife. God knows where he got it.
stanley knife eh. why am I not surprised. :)
Sounds like Twenty Major had done a poo nefore the Trinners scribe put pen to door.
I live in D4, by the way, but I'm salt of the earth myself :-)
