    I had a high school football coach who had an anti-abortion bumper sticker on his '88 Camaro RS that I will always remember for some reason.

    It said, "Be a hero save a whale, save a baby go to jail."

    There was a save the planet sticker on the back of a Volvo this morning. Not much of a surprise other than the Volvo was rusted to the door handles, had a blue cloud of smoke coming from the back, and was in the drive through lane at McDonalds.

    Something tells me that some people think it is cool to preach being green, but won’t actually do what it takes.

    I saw a bumper sticker on a vehicle out in the office parking lot earlier today that said, "Honk if you hate car horns!"

    Gimme! Coffee stickers in Ithaca are the equivalent of BIRD'S BARBERSHOP stickers in Austin.


    Fun nonpolitical display, with the standard Gimme Coffee sticker that is mandatory on every sticker-laden car in town. Grassroots is the area's large multi-day folk music festival. Despite the area's very large GLBT population, rainbows here aren't too common, probably because it's not seen as anything out of the ordinary.


    You know someone is serious about their favorite causes when stickers wrap around the the sides of the car. I like the sexy lady silhouette with a book. Exclamation points are from Gimme Coffee. On this car, considering the placement of the first one, they make a very subtle statement, nd the presence of other stickers about immigration. I like.


    Knitters for Barack Obama? IB = Ithaca Bread. CHQ = Chautauqua.


    Old political stickers are commonplace; a lot of Kerry, Gore, Kennedy, Mondale and the like. Interesting that the older Kennedy sticker is on top of the newer Obama sticker.

    Slightly off-topic: the "green" justification I've heard for holding on to old rustbuckets is that keeping an old smoking old gas guzzler consumes less energy and produces less pollution than the manufacture, shipment and sale of a new car. Also, it's an anti-consumerist statement. Really, it's an extreme form of the more valid green justification for historic preservation versus demolition and rebuilding.

    I wonder how much energy it would consume to fix the car so they guy behind them in the drive through line at McDonalds does not choke to death. I actually got out of line, parked and walked in because it was so bad.

    For some reason I don't think he could drive this in CA.

    I swear that wasn't my car!

    I had the companion sticker:

    SAVE THE SOUTH. TEACH A YANKEE TO DRIVE.

    [QUOTE=Bear Up North;571875]Years ago when I was doing some training with my former employer at a manufacturing plant in Orlando I noticed this bumpersticker:

    My former roommate had a funny bumper sticker he'd leave on cars that took up two parking spaces that said "I park like an idiot!" It was made of weak glue so it could easily be removed without any damage, but I thought it was pretty funny.

    I hate when people put stickers showing what areacode they are from. it was rampant in the central coast, as well as the inland empire.

    Off-topic, but I'm fairly certain cars beyond a certain age are exempt from smog requirements in California (rationale being they're few and far between, decrease in number over time, and probably are impossible to make compliant with smog requirements).

    I get stuck behind the stinky ones on occasion even here.

    It is any car that was built before 1975. It used to be a rolling 25 year window (I.e. if your car was 25 years old you're done with smogging a car), but that has since changed.

    Maybe he was far from home and his car starting doing that and he normally doesnt go to fast food but he was worried about turning his car off cause it was in the middle of breaking down and he just wanted to get home without it breaking down because he needs to make sure his free range chickens have laid organic eggs.

    Also FYI - a lot of biodiesels tend to run pretty rich with blue smoke.

    Also FYI - a lot of people (most even) are hypocritical.

    Also- i really like the bumper stickers with the jesus fish but instead of the word "jesus" on it it says "and chips"
    .

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I second that.

    Seen around here: Where in the hell is Onoville?

    Onoville was a hamlet east of Jamestown that was flooded by the Kinzua Reservoir in 1965. Today, there's a marina near the site.

    I saw one over the weekend that said:

    "Abstinence Makes the Church Grow Fondlers"

    I would imagine that one gets some interesting reactions.
    He's a planner, he's a dreamer, he's a sordid little schemer,
