A piece of graffiti
located on Poplar Ave.
east of Danny Thomas Blvd.
, next to the Memphis Men's Union Mission
. The graffiti iself was drawn on the side of an abandoned liquor store
. It was first noticed in March
when a number of people
wrote in a category
for Best Graffito
in The Memphis Flyer
's Annual Best of Memphis
You know, we used to have a best graffiti category, but no one ever got the hang of it. People voted for places but didn’t tell us the graffiti they had in mind. They voted for graffiti but didn’t tell us where it was. A real mess. Sadly, it created a situation in which “Superman Dam Fool” couldn’t possibly win – which, we admit, was the whole point of the category. Satisfaction at last.
Since then, it's been archived for the ages
at Memphis Mojo
