Clapham Has Been Given A Cute New Name

Clapham has undergone a subtle rebrand and it shall now be known as ‘Wankerville’.

At the end of last week, a lovely sign welcoming you to ‘Wankerville’ appeared on the rail bridge above Clapham High Street. (Header image: @directwashacked)

And, rather excellently, residents of Clapham—sorry, Wankerville—are taking it well.

@roonstergram on Instagram says “Can’t beat living in Wankerville 😂😂😂 Best graffiti I’ve ever seen. Double win in that most of us in Clapham will be like, “Yeah, that’s fine. Love it here in Wankerville.””

Oh and as you exit the friendly town of Wankerville, you’ll get this polite goodbye, too:

As street art goes, this is probably up there with the best. An exquisite act of vandalism, I’d say. What do you reckon?
