I'm not always a fan of graffiti, but a nice stencil doesn't raise hackles in quite the same way as a tag.

Andrew, hope you don't mind me conscripting your photo for a health promotion message!

Never mind, it has been immortalised at Transpontine. And presumably somebody still has the stencil... anybody spotted the graffiti anywhere else?
