Banksy had us worried there for a second. When we hadn't seen an update on his site by noon, we figured his possible outing this weekend to reporters had scared our favorite street artist off. But at 12:30 p.m. Banksy updated his Instagram with the latest entry in his city-wide exhibition: simple text scrawled on a blue (gray?) wall somewhere in Greenpoint. Though not that pretty and more annoying than funny, we're at least relieved Banksy hasn't hightailed it back to the U.K.

Update: we found it!

Adding to his emerging body of gotcha! graffiti, Banksy put the piece up somewhere in Greenpoint, according to his Instagram. His homepage hasn't been updated yet with either a photo or a extension on the exhibition hotline. Runnin' Scared will update as soon as he does.

The tag itself reads:

I HAVE A THEORY THAT YOU CAN MAKE ANY SENTENCE SEEM PROFOUND BY WRITING THE NAME OF A DEAD PHILOSOPHER AT THE END OF IT

--PLATO

Despite our aversion to all things meta, we'll be hunting for this tag just like the rest of 'em. If you have any idea where this might be, don't hesitate to drop us a line.
