One of the things I like most about graffiti is the psychology behind it. Sometimes you see things on walls that make you go, "Hmmmmm..."
For example, why is someone running around Brooklyn drawing pictures of corn dogs?
This particular corn dog even has a French accent.
We all know graffiti is about marking territory -- hence the popularity of tagging, which is just a way of saying, "I was here." Tags can also claim ownership, and going over someone's tag with your own is a sign of disrespect.
But somehow I think the corn-dogger is just having fun, which you have to admire.
