Bathroom wall as original blog?

Brandon, one of my students in writing class, just had a great idea. He suggests that bathroom walls could be seen as the original blogs because people leave comments and others reply. What do you think?

The discourse can certainly be as "flaming" as it gets on blogs. I think "the original blogs" is a bit of a misnomer, but a possible "genealogical ancestor" makes more sense.

I think in many ways, both come from similar exigencies: a validation of the self.
