  1. In formal speech and writing graffiti takes a plural verb. In less formal contexts it is sometimes considered a mass noun and is used with a singular verb. The singular graffito is found mostly in archaeological and other technical writing.Jan 24, 1995

In the university library where I spent a lot of my adolescence (fearful that I'd be spotted and outed as a high school student) the downstairs women's lav had "HOLDEN CAULFIELD IS GOD INCARNATE" written in big black letters over the sinks.

I've always been fond of that graffito.  I hope it's still there.
