Stacy Q Rocks?

So I travel from truck stop to truck stop, hoping the next leap will be the leap home.  Ok, not really.  But they all do seem pretty much the same.  Especially one thing, the bathroom writing.  I've got to admit, some of the writings can be pretty funny, while some are racist, and others make no sense. 

I have come across a few of the same postings by one author.  He always writes the same thing.  Stacy Q Rocks!  For those who lived in the 80's they get the joke.  For everyone else some explanation is needed.  Stacy Q was a one hit wonder in the 80's.  She had one song that was seriously overplayed, "Two of Hearts."


Now I have no idea why someone would bother to write in truck stop restroom stalls, "Stacy Q Rocks!"  All I can figure is that this guy must have a wicked sense of humor, or he really does like Stacy Q.

  2. Lol. I'm in a stall in Stanton, TN on I-40 exit 42 right now, counting my blessings that the fart I was afraid to let go of, but finally did 5 foot from the stall was just that. A fart. I am sitting here now, even after reading this article, looking at a Stacey Q Rocks graffiti, and decided to google it and see what the heck it was all about. I wish the author would google his masterpiece and clue us in on who he is. Any women out there know if there is a Ms. Stacey Q Rocks? Wondering if its only in the men's restroom, or both. Lol.

  7. Found in large stall in Pilot, Mt. Vernon, IL on I-57/I-64. I have seen it everywhere for the past couple of years, and finally had to Google it. Now that I know, I wish I didn't, because now I have "Two of Hearts" stuck in my head after years of trying to forget it!

  11. I'm in Carrollton GA at a Pilot and saw Stacy Q Rocks in the stall. Above it said Google: so I did. Wow talk about viral (social media slang) not a trucker but I will definitely keep my eye out now for Stacey Q Rocks! Just think what a biz could do with this type of Branding. Wonder if Stacey Q is getting ready for a comeback.

    1. That's wild. I wrote this particular blog post six years ago. I wonder if the graffiti artist decided to look up his own work on the internet, and found my post about him? That would be pretty funny if he did.

      I personally never thought this little blog post of mine would get so many responses over the years. I am now at 577 blog posts, and this one, by far, has had the most replies. I'd have never of thought it would have.

  18. My years on the highway have a tale to tell.
    Stacey is honored everywhere from coast to coast.
    But, oddly.. There are 3 distinct types of handwriting that can claim 95% of the "art".
    The original prankster has block handwriting and favors the major truck stop chains mostly south of I-40.
    The first copycat has loopy printing and can be found anywhere in the lower 48.
    The second copycat tends to frequent rest areas and smaller independent lots. That is a rushed scribble that is barely legible.
    Beyond that, others have left their own trails.
    All use the same type of marker.
    Probably a team or trainer and that is their inside joke like a dog tagging a hydrant.
    A few years ago, I saw it written in dust on the back of a trailer rolling down the highway. (It was the loopy version).
    Harmless entertainment. It gets a chuckle out of me every time.
