Life in the Pink
Yes, this is a graffiti of... toilet paper! When I saw it (by the Centre Culturel Suisse, off rue des Francs Bourgeois), I could not help taking a photo thinking of how many times foreign visitors mentioned to me that they were surprised to see pink toilet paper... For yes, ladies and gentleman, in France pink toilet paper is the norm (well, almost). Also, for those of you who are currently learning French, the "PQ" is not the artist's signature (at least I don't think so!), but stands for Papier Q (Q sounding like Cul in French, which means "butt"), pronounced "Pay-Kew".
