Sensible Vandalism

I saw an old classroom chair displayed in a museum. The intended subtext of the exhibit was unambiguous: old graffiti carved by people now old or dead had a certain fascination. This subtle message was apparently lost on a young visitor with a felt-tip marking pen who redefined the display. It will probably take the curators a few decades to appreciate the addition.
