There are many mediums of expression: writing, singing, dancing, blogging, painting, the list goes on and on. But we at 4E would like to expose the world to the most cutting edge and hip new medium for getting ones thoughts or comedic impulses out there. Say hello to the bathroom wall. For the past month or so, I’ve had the entire Hoya staff on lookout for the best bathroom stall scribbles they could find. Here are some of the best!

I would imagine that the desired effect would be to make the reader feel introspective, but all it makes me think about is how long the person must have spent writing this…don’t you have other things to do?
