The Kronic—what?—kles of Keith

July 30th, 2009 · 151 comments

One lazy Sunday, when our anonymous submitter in Minneapolis spotted this bit of graphity on a wooden bridge at a park, “At first I thought it was sweet in a sad kind of way,” he says. But then he kept finding more — “on benches, picnic tables, even trees, and they got progressively more insane.”

And yet, as many questions as these notes raise, I’m sure we can all agree that whatever Keith’s wife did, IT HAD TO BE DONE.

Here, Keith’s wife really shows off her flair for language (which we got a brief glimpse of in her earlier “hot dog” opus.)

Then, evidently quite pleased with herself, Keith’s wife gives herself an encore on another bench.

    How could you have forgotten to post the last note?:

    PS In case you couldn’t tell from my subtle hints, “she” was born with a penis.

      kmf,

      I could be wrong about this, but I suspect that he message writer is a former working girl who knows a good deal about “the game.”

      The high-income-earning prostitutes (escorts) learn early on in their careers that the best places to find rich men to “date” are always the local hog dog stands.

      It stands to reason. After all, it doesn’t take a a mathematician to realize that those who can afford to regularly frequent hot dog stands are usually: sophisticated, wealthy, and gentlemen of leisure who, more often than not, are beyond reproach.

      While these fellows are quite willing to spend any amount of money in order to satiate their most primal urges, they are also discriminating connoisseurs in matters such as the selection of their paramours.

      You have to view it from the gentleman’s perspective. You see, his aim is, undoubtedly, to turn an ordinary, common debauchery into something that will be viewed as a most pleasurable and delightful experience for both himself and his partner.

      He would like the occasion to be as memorable and as cherished as well-loved melody.

      Given his goals, you can be certain that he will certainly insist that the partner he selects possess, at the very least, the body of one of Botticelli’s more voluptuous nymphs.

      And, given the fact that the fellow has enough dash and refinement to have become well-known to those who are habitues of the “hot dog scene,” he’ll no doubt require that the young lady also possess that enigmatic, yet still recognizable gleam in her eye that, when caught just right in the light of a flicjkering neon hot dog sign, resembles nothing so much as a whimsical whirl of a starburst against velvety night sky.

      One glance in one another’s direction, and they instinctively know that they are destined for a rendezvous with enchantment.

      So, anyway, kmf. I certain the message lady’s been off game for a time.

      I’m fairly certain that hookers like guys who hang out at hotdog stands, but maybe she was referencing the similarity in shape between the phallus and the ballpark frank. (I hope not, as that does strike me as being a bit ribald. There’s no need for that kind of talk, no matter how upset you are with Keith. )

      Anyway, I hope the two kids work things out. They seem like a nice couple.

      Or maybe a woman with a low voice and an unfeasibly large clit.

      (Some women I’ve been “seeing” have clits that are six or seven, or even eight inches long.) Anyone who tells you that women’s bodies aren’t RAPIDLY changing is a definitely a nutter.

    Ahh straight out of one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known works.

    What we see here is a tragic case of middle school love gone wrong. Kieth finally got under her training bra by having her snort pixie stick and getting that sugar high. Once Kieth’s “wife” (that would be a proper use of quotes missy!) had her hooked on the stuff, she snorted them so much she developed a mild case of diabetes, but as long as she kept off of the stuff she would be fine. The withdrawls made her tired, and her libido fell so much that the hanky panky with Kieth became very scarce. Keith’s budding body was then spiraling out of control in a frenzy of hormones, that was until he met “her”. “She” was a older “girl” who had a thing for thirteen year old boys. They didn’t want to climb in “her” man-made vagina, they just wanted to feel “her” man-made brests, thus making her feel less of a slut. So, Kieth left his “wife” for “her”. The “wife’s” emotions/irrationality got the better of her, so she then felt the need to write these notes for the rest of mindkind to take pity on her, make a gilded statue in her image, and possibly to lynch the hearless bastard that didn’t take an adolescent relationship seriously.

Sucking that businessman’s penis on the Jerry Lewis Show. Where are the parents? Out partying, I suppose. Meanwhile, it’s McKenna’s 18th birthday and her mother’s got her out shoveling snow in July and that means that she’s dealing coke and wants McKenna to cut it up some more because those summer school kids on campus don’t know Dr. Dre from Draino.

    • #15.4   Michelle S.

      The y’s don’t necessarily give anything away, considering they vary widely within the same notes on nearly all the photos. For instance, there are at least 3 different y’s in the third note alone. Swoops and strokes vary in most people’s handwriting depending on the speed, pen, surface and emotional state.

      I think the more interesting features to compare are things like the capitalization/underscore of words to emphasize, the way the upper case T’s and J’s umbrella the next letter. The curled tails on her upper case A’s, R’s, and K’s and the small a’s and u’s. All the notes share similar and unusual features to one or more other notes.

      I don’t claim to be an expert, but it looks to me like they were all written by the same person in different moods. The note that alludes to suicide is the most interesting to me in that there’s a dramatic flair to the hand, but it’s controlled – resigned – lacking the anger in the other notes.

      Billboards… would be cool to see a pan on a billboard. The best spot I have seen one was at the start of the year at a music festival. Prodigy were playing and they must have been trying to film the act from somewhere as they had these massive projection screens everywhere and all of a sudden this message comes up on the screen with something along the lines of “Security guard at front of house move! You are blocking the camera” It stayed up for about 5 minutes but in my inebriated state I forgot to take a photo for pan.

    This is actually horrendously sad to me. Maybe it’s because of my personal perspective, but I’m reading ‘she’ as heroin. And that wifey may have introduced Keith to some other (“softer”) drug, and he introduced her to “HER”, but she’s gotten clean, and he has not, and she’s reaching out in places he may frequent.
    Just my 2 cents.

    You gotta wonder, did the mysterious “she” make Keith abandon this poster child for Sanity Fair? I refuse to believe anyone can actually break someone else’s brain this entirely just by cheating and leaving. And unless he held a gun to her head and shoved shrooms down her throat, nobody forced Miss Whackjob 2009 to take drugs. She must’ve been just a tad warped before he left. I’m betting the crazy factor pushed him out the door. If someone left notes like this for me I’d skip town. Fast. Permanently. Leaving skidmarks and a tiny yellow puddle in my wake.

I mean, how’s Keith gonna know how sorry he’ll be if the messages are unreadable?

      Also, a lot of these pieces of wood look pretty old and worn smooth, which would make it easier to write legibly on them. Just sayin’.

    As if it weren’t enough that those are supposed to be outside yet look pristine (but aren’t made with unerasable marker, because the ink would look different on the wood!).

      Most of them were taken with a really good camera, but some were taken with a really crappy POS, which could show a nice amount of distortion. The one you mentioned was taken with one of those, with me standing on the table and facing down. It was also quite fresh, so the ink had not had time to fade. By now most of these are VERY faded.
