“The men who write upon these walls,” mystery solved

The part about rolling it in little balls had scientists tearing their hair out.  Putting periscopes under the partitions trying to catch someone doing it.

Hi readers.  Scientists have finally solved one of the most puzzling mysteries of the 20th Century.  The poem beginning, “The men who write upon these walls,” found on the stall partitions in Mens’ rooms was a phenomenon more pervasive than the “Kilroy was here” riddle of the WWII era.

Now they can finally settle down to studying why the magnetic poles of earth wander around from hell to breakfast.

  2. Dang, I rember seeing that and a lot more on bathroom walls. I know the rest of that rhyme, in casse you forgot. I especially like the part that starts “Those who read these lines of wit”. . . .

    • Hi Dizzy. There were a couple more popular at the time, one about sitting broken hearted. But time left them in the grader ditch because pay toilets went away. Gracias, J

      • If ever there was a miserly business concept it was pay toilets. I cannot begin to count the times I have slithered beneath the door because I didn’t have the dime required to pee!
