YEAH, WELL, STICK IT ON YOUR BUMPER!!

My favorite T shirt
(The rest of the post, 
except for the next paragraph, 
is about bumper stickers.)

I’ve made quite a few informative signs of my own, mostly on styrofoam leftover containers from restaurants.  This was so I would be able to eat my own food the next day.  When the kids were still at home I would write various things on the box so they would leave it alone.  Some examples: “Keep out”, “Don’t touch” or “This is Mom’s”.  These did no good.  I graduated to “Poison” (with the appropriate skull & crossbones), “Danger—Live Snakes” & even “Caution—Radioactive Materials”!  None of these worked either.  Now that all the kids are married & gone, I just put an “X” on the box to remind my husband not to eat it.  About nine eight seven times out of ten, he’ll leave it for me.

I found these at ArcaMax:

The Earth Is Full - Go Home.

I Have The Body Of A God - Buddha.

Cleverly Disguised As A Responsible Adult.

If We Quit Voting, Will They All Go Away?

Cover Me, I'm Changing Lanes.

He Who Hesitates Is Not Only Lost, But Miles From The Next Exit.

You! Out Of The Gene Pool - Now!

Boldly Going Nowhere.

How Many Roads Must A Man Travel Down Before He Admits He Is Lost? 

Bumper stickers are one of the newest art forms.
People use them to say anything & everything.
For example, how they feel about religion:


They brag about their family:


Their lifestyles:




And their driving skills:

They protect their cars:

Many are animal lovers:



Some are requests for assistance:



They are all concerned about other drivers:





And will try to give you warning of possible upcoming problems:



My favorite doesn't even go on a car:










If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old----fishducky

  1. oh no! you've upped the ante.
    Now I'm going to have to post a photo of my favourite T-shirts.
    Giggled quite a lot at "help Daddy farted and we can't get out"; reminded me a lot of the days when K would let one go and the rest of us frantically wound down the windows.
    I love your final sentence today.

  3. My favorite is the horse drawn carriage, for sure. All are very funny, and the stick characters are something else.

  4. Most of our bumper stickers are nothing like this clever.
    And yes, I am buddha. A very generous buddha.

  5. Love this vehicle protected by anti-theft sticker. My favorite was a sticker that read: Jesus, please protect me from your followers.
