Let’s talk about this lil’ piece of graffiti that’s made an appearance all around West Town, Ukrainian Village and Wicker Park:




I feel silly asking this, but does anyone know:

1) What it means?

2) Who it’s coming from?

3) Am I dense for not knowing?

4) Why it hasn’t been subject to:

  1. I’ve been wondering the same thing. My wife, a photographer, took a series of shots of the “Oh Shit”s all around West Town. I’ve been wondering for a long time what they are and who is writing them.
