Can A Graffiti Tag Result In A 3,500-Year-Old Pharaoh’s Curse?

What kind of douche would tag a cartouche?  According to CNN, his name is Ding Jinghao unchained? (The D is silent 母亲 笨蛋!), a 15-year-old Chinese tourist whom actually carved the words “Ding Jinghao was here” into a 3,500-year-old ancient Egyptian Temple. This idiot does not know even the most basic rules of etiquette to graffiti writing.

The first rule would be to never tag your “real name” because it will make it a lot easier for you to get in “real trouble.”

The next would be, when you do tag something, you don’t need to write “was here” like KILROY, because the very fact that you tagged it implies that yes, you were there (making ‘was here’ redundant).,

If you have to do a “throw up tag,” try not to do it on an ancient cultural artifact while visiting a foreign country, they tend to frown upon that.

And finally, if you tag on top of someone else’s “piece,” the artist who created the original will have beef with you.  As the original artist of this piece is a long-dead 3,500-year-old mummy, the beef of course will be in the form of a Pharaoh’s curse, which will most likely (If you believe the movies) result in this Chinese “Teen Banksy” vomiting and shitting black blood while scarabs and hissing cockroaches crawl into his flesh from under his fingernails, and exit out of his orifices.

Great Job…Dingbat.
