In downtown Detroit there are a lot of empty, abandoned buildings. On many you can find one or two graffiti turtles spray painted on them. They are usually accompanied by the word "turtle" spelled in a variety of interesting ways: TRTL, Turdl, trdl, etc. I have heard that this is done to the abandoned buildings in protest to the glacial pace at which the city of Detroit is being "revitalized".
