Sign Inexplicably Remains Unvandalized

PORTLAND, ME – A sign advertising the sale of a new office building / condo building that as of yet has not broken ground, has somehow remained completely free of vandalism this past weekend.

This is the location where soon people who work in the old port will no longer be able to eat lunch anymore, because there will be a giant condo building on top of the parts where all the grass and trees are.

This is the location on 16 Middle St where people who live and work in the Old Port will no longer be able to eat lunch, as there will be a giant condo building on top of all the parts where all the grass and trees are.

The new development at 16 Middle Street, near Shipyard Brewing, will break ground directly on top of a grassy secluded park behind Micucci’s where some workers in the Old Port enjoy their lunch.

Inexplicably, nowhere on the sign is spraypainted graffiti saying “die yuppie scum” or “go home yuppies.”  There is also no visible sign of a wheatpasted image of Mr Moneybags from Monopoly, or any other wheatpasted images of protest.

The reason for this total lack of graffiti remains unclear.  Authorities declined to comment on the intent of the graffiti artists who have left this sign completely untouched.

We have hired an artist to help us visualize some of the ways this sign could have looked today, but for some reason does not:

Artist Rendering: This sign could have been vandalized with spray paint saying, "Die Yuppie Scum" but for some reason was not.

Artist Rendering: This sign could also have been vandalized with spraypaint to read, "Yuppies Go Home" but for some reason, no graffiti artist has done so.

Artist Rendering: Wheatpaste posters are a method of preparing more elaborate art ahead of time, allowing the graffiti artist to quickly apply the art and then leave.  For some reason, this has not happened.

UPDATE: As of Sept 10th, 2016, this sign continues to remain inexplicably free of any signs of vandalism.
