Art imitates life on a storage shed in the parking lot of Mr. Yummy’s.
This is brand new graffiti that’s sprung up in my neighborhood. Typically, my neighbor’s deal with this in a quick manner by painting over it, so it probably won’t last long.
The Mr. Yummy’s proprietor has been on vacation for awhile, so this may be an editorial comment about the lack of his wares. Personally, it sums up how I was feeling while first laying eyes on it, which in turn made me smile… the transformative power of art.
It’s simple, expressive and uses no curse words. I give it an A!

I have never ever ever seen them open for business, in the decades I’ve driven past.
Same here. I walk my dogs by it and I always want to stop and get us each a cheeseburger.
Mr. Yummy’s is generally open from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the school year. The parking lot is filled with tradesmen pickup trucks at lunch time. School kids hang out directly after school. So, it seems he knows his audience and their schedules, and when’s the best time to make money. Though his stuff is dirt cheap!
