Graffiti

The Sneak lives in Briggs too.
--The Sneak

 

Submitter comment:

As I studied many of the lavatories on campus I noticed that there was some person who calls himself "The Sneak" who seems to have made Graffiti a hobby. I must have found at least a dozen of his philosophies in various buildings. All of his Graffiti are signed "The Sneak." I have rationalized that they are the same person since the handwriting in them is the same, especially in the signature. Most of the "Sneak's" Graffiti is quite unprintable but here is one example.
