My friend was quite pissed about the bill she was going to have to pay later, but even she saw the humor in this poor attempt at vandalism.
MSU played a good game and won deservedly so, but...I'll let you guys infer what I mean with the picture.
That's so awful and funny all at once, they ought to have an adjective for it.
This morning I drove by all kinds of green grafitti sprayed on a sidewalk along Main street, around Pauline. Classy, classy, classy. I couldn't discern the spelling from my car, sadly. I'm sure there was something headsmack-worthy.
There is an adjective for it. Sparty. It has both noun and adjective forms.
Not enough posbangs in the world for you today, sir.
Statee also works.
It looks more like "Staee" to me. It actually seems like the vandal started to paint a "T" and then turned it into an "E" (and then added another one, just to prove his brah-hood).
Yea, you're right. I saw the line in a quick glance and thought the T was squeezed in there.
I don't know about you, but when I see OSU or MSU vandalism my first thoughts include an answer to the question "How can I change this product of below-average decision-making/creativity to make the perpetrator look as dumb as, or dumber than, my confirmation bias against him allows?"
If I ever saw "STATE" graffiti on a car, I'd quickly *do my best* to come up with something elegantly simple and comic--like adding two hyphen-like substances to the second 'T' to make the word seem misspelled to all passer-bys. As much as I love thinking of Spartan culture unovercomably submerging itself to elitely deep depths, I think it's more consistent with Michigan Manhood to, rather than want to push Sparty beneath us symbolically-yet-paranoidly, pursue the casual elevation above them of ourselves.
So yeah, I'd strongly consider picking up a can of spray paint. And I like to think that's what happened.
I think most people would not spray-paint their own cars. I'm not giving this Sparty idiot the benefit of the doubt. He/she already flubbed the use of CAPS with the first "t".
If you take a closer look at the first "E", you'll see that the "L" portion of the "E" was performed in one stroke instead of two, which means that it was originally drawn that way.
WOW. That sucks, yet is funny at the same time.
My neighbors had about every state fan at their house and they wouldn't stop breaking beer bottles and stuff on the side of the scUM (my) house so we called the cops and watched them scatter. It was awesome.
Where was your shotgun?
haha Saturday night was actually the first time I've thought to myself "see mom! There was a good reason to get my CCW!"
how did you avoid going Gran Torino?
not see that and call 911?
Obviously, that's a crazy day for AA police. And I have no idea about response times. But I'd have called, and called again, and walked down the street a block or so behind the people I saw do that, and call again and again and again. Until a cruiser came.
I walked by this at about 10pm on Friday night. AA cops weren't there at that time either.
"Hi, um I am on my cellphone on Pauline, and I'd like to report some vandalism."
"Okay, what kind of vandalism?"
"Uh, it would be an act of vandalsm on the English language..."
"I see. Would this by any chance be related to a probable MSU student?"
"I think so."
"Yeah, we're getting a lot of that. We'll send a patrol car with a dictionary right away. Please stand by."
You're not calling anyone from downtown on gameday.
They were just promoting TeeWorld...
Or were just really excited....STATEeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
This poses the question: we all know that if you can't get into college, you go to State. But what if you can't spell State?
You still go to state.
Actually, you go to "StATEE."
Which is the roughly-translated equivalent.
Well clearly then you'd go to STAEE
Don't think there could be a more perfect representation of why I hate the idiot fans of that school. You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.
I feel bad for your friend, but that is awesome for my psyche. I know that quite a few individuals at State are thoughtful and articulate individuals, and the depressing fact here is not that they misspelled "State" (I chalk that up to drinking), but that someone (or a bunch of people) thought it would be a great idea to tag someone's car because their school's football team just vanquished a rival.
well that is certainly not classy at all, and downright unacceptable for that matter, the percentage of our fanbase that does these things is very low, and the percentage of their fan base that does these classless things is much higher.
My buddy has his car flags ripped off his truck. Not cool at all.
damn, that is just too funny.
There were a decent number of Michigan fans outside the stadium that I though were pretty classless after a game where we lost the trash talking rights for the season. A good many of them had the Michigan version of the hats Brian was just ragging on in his main post, and I would be hard pressed to classify them as likely alumni from any of our campuses.
How long until Lloyd Brady is hanging out the window of that car?
but some STAEE moron(s) also spray-painted the "MSU", "State", etc. all over the sidewalk outside the stadium, NW entrance off Main Street. Classless as hell. Maybe we need students to guard the staduim like they guard Sparty at MSU.
Maybe those jackasses need to be disciplined by MSU, if they were current students and caught on tape.
Simple solution. Snipers on the new towers.
It's like home school except instead of a dedicated mother you get a drunk, dyslexic, and apathetic uncle. "I don't care, spell words however the hell you want. That looks right to me though."
i think six zero needs to somehow immortalize that in T-shirt form
"If you can't get into college, go to StAEE' shirt?
Sounds like they were getting pepper sprayed by the car's owner as they were painting it.
You know, like the Castle Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh.
Also I've got a good (it happened to me so maybe not so good, but I'm over it) car vandalism story. I went down to Columbus in 2006 for the OSU-UM game ... my car actually had Ohio license plates but I forgot to take off my UM license plate frame and the night after the game I found a stab hole through the hood of my car.
You stay inside to protect your couch, and they hit your car!
Damn them. Damn them to Hell!
Ah the classic ruse. I believe the Spartans used a variant of this in the Pelopennsian Wars. They would set fire to their enemies houses and establish the pattern. When they attacked agian, they found their enemies guarding their houses, so they burned their cattle.
So this is what an education from MSU gets you, huh? The stupid fucks couldn't even spell part of their own school's name correctly...sad. I think this pretty much sums it up in a nut shell the type of degenerates that god awful school is producing and it's scary! On a side note, to bad you didn't catch the little bastards, I'm sure it would of been fun putting a beatdown on some Sparty clowns, karmas a bitch!
... but not as bad as this classic tattoo on an Everton supporter:
My family told me that when they were walking among the sea of fans down Hoover after the game, a drunk Spartan fan ran up to one of the cars attempting to get out of the stadium and punched out one of their windows, and sprayed glass all over their kid in his/her carseat next to said window. It's so hard for them to celebrate a win with class.
Enjoy your 7-6 season, Spartans.
Any chance we can get a T-shirt of this? Something like a picture of a spartan with StAEE below it?
hated english and sciene too, don't care much for engineering, it looks like I'm going to MSU..
