Someone spray painted 'Kanye' onto a WMU sign and we can't stop laughing

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2017 at 12:20 PM

We always appreciate a little spray paint tomfoolery, but this job may just take the cake.

A Western Michigan University student posted this photo on Facebook today showing a walkway on WMU's campus vandalized with the word "Kanye" to make "Kanye Western Michigan University." It's like the bridge was just asking for someone to do this.

As a former student of WMU, this isn't the first time someone has tried to make a funny pun or joke on the walkway. Other spray paint jobs include "A Tribe Called Western Michigan University" and personal favorite "Wicked Witch of Western Michigan University."

Not entirely sure how the person(s) got up there to do the spray paint, but kuddos to you for not killing yourself while trying.
