Since I keep my eyes open for the hard-to-see. Check out this graffiti, which can be seen in Amherst and Northampton (if it hasn’t been removed).
I first saw this tag at UMass Amherst in the spring.
This is what the tagged area looks like as of this week.
The tag “MGK,” the phrase “Kilroy was here,” and the image of Kilroy Was Here appear to be connected.
I Googled MGK. Those letters could stand for anything, or nothing at all. I’ll list a few: insecticide products, Machinegunkeyboard.com, Machine Gun Kelly, Mightygodking.com, the McLaughlin Gormley King Company, MGKrecords.net, or a Mega Growing Kit, .
The meaning behind Kilroy is an interesting read, however.
According to the editor of Kilroywashere.org, Kilroy started as a graffiti-like doodle.
Most of the information on Kilroy War Here, or, perhaps James J. Kilroy, a WWII shipyear inspector, is considered legend, according to Kilroywashere.org.
I haven’t discovered who is making the Kilroy references, and I don’t know who MGK is.
