Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, August 14, 2021

I admit my ignorance of graffiti tagging, so maybe the handle “pneumonia” is commonplace in the five boroughs.

It’s new to me, though. This simple magic-markered markup was spied (and cameraphoned) near the corner of Madison Avenue and 40th Street in midtown Manhattan. Check out Flickr for the embiggened version.

It’s unusual, anyway. I’d suspect The Gap of having something to do with defacing their own outdoor ad, but I can’t imagine what the advantage would be of associating hipster apparel with infectious disease.
