Oh, yeah, I have been to someplace in Texas, but I don't think it was Houston. I never got further than the Airport though, we were just taking a detour on a flight.

Ever been to north Africa or the middle east?

I seem to recall that name being written on a wall somewhere over there too...

Man, this writing on the wall's all over the place.

That was in Humble, in front of the Movie Tavern on 1960 close to 59.

There's also a pre-sale going on for the Trans Siberian Orchestra...floor seats are almost sold out!

I would like to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, or be part of it.

That definitely Says MENE spelled wrong

That's what I thought, Kenman. It's like... somebody's trying to steer our attention away from the grafitti for some reason. Let's take another look...

The Trans Siberian Orchestra has never made a claim of being a Christian band but many of their members are Christians and God and Religion play a big part in their music and lyrics.

heh, thanks. It's really just plainly written on the wall there, I don't see why everyone keeps saying it's spelled wrong.

BTW, here's the source Gimp (XCF) / Photoshop (PSD) files if anyone wants to see how that's done. It was a fun little jaunt into Gimp for a little while.

After seeing Clint's fake it got me wondering if the original picture (the one mastallama posted) isn't a fake as well =]
