Cacti

Of course they

weren’t cacti …

… but why do boys draw them on walls. Graffiti I kind of get, as an act of rebellion. And for shock value, you can sort of see why they’d pick a dick. But surely adolescent males should be interested in other things.

Granted, you occasionally get a hastily scribbled pair of tits …

… but why no outlines of shapely feminine arses …

… and surely the ultimate image for shock value would be The C Word …
