"We are spiritual beings havin a human experience"; a faded Mr. 8 tag

I had to play around with the exposure on this one to bring out the faded Mr. 8 tag. It’s surprising how many times I’ve encountered this tag around Vancouver, from Kitsilano, Chinatown, Downtown Eastside, along Broadway, Fairview, Joyce Stn…this guy is everywhere!

Normally it’s considered a sign of great disrespect when a writer crosses out another writer’s tag. Is the war on? The sticker seems to think so.
