What’s the difference between a street artist and a vandal?

Could it be that a street artist is good at it?

    Good morning. The best difference I can see is that street artists ( I presume you mean pavement painters?) use chalks that wash off. Defacers of walls, aka “Banksy”, are, in my opinion, vandals and should be made to scrub the rubbish off. Would you like a painting on your house wall?

    Post-Banksy, they all appear to be street artists.

    Would I like a painting on my house wall? Would the artist like his hands severed and hung on a string round his neck?

    Well said, that man. Glad to know you are so tolerant. It goes well with my “delight” when a total stranger calls me Diana. I once had quite an altercation with a young man on the telephone from Eon. He only had my surname and kept quizzing me about my first name. He just couldn’t understand why I didn’t want him to be so familiar. I suppose it means I am getting old, but I never would have. Never mind, “they” – to whom we apparently should defer – will get older, and who knows what horrors will appear in years to come. Maybe pictures painted on parked cars??

    When a cold caller asks me for my first name, I tend to reply, “Mr’. Nobody’s ever had a counter to that.

    Decorating parked cars? Older Spanish rail rolling stock seems to be profusely illustrated, so why not?

    Yours? Same reply as before, I think. My reply – I would remove something of theirs which can be confused with the Spanish for cushions.

    That’s pretty sexist.

    I could say that your reply also is, or maybe the expression “X has a lot of xxxs” is new to you. Looking at that again, I feel I should write XX or XY. Sorry. I have a batty sense of humour. Female or male vandals perhaps should be strung up appropriately. – that better?
