This most excellent piece of graffiti has been gracing the entry road to the mall near our house ever since we moved to Washington:
It seems The Claw is somewhat of a Seattle phenomenon; I've seen this same modification on signs in Redmond, Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle. (Unfortunately I couldn't take my own picture of it because they seem to have cleaned up the Redmond one in the last couple weeks. Too bad... it used to make my day every time I drove by.)
Anyway, today I found a guy who claims he started the Claw phenomenon. He sounds possessive enough about it that he just might be for real. Has anyone else sighted The Claw lately?
