    ESCHEW OBFUSCATION

    WE DON'T CARE, WE DON'T HAVE TO
    (this one ended up on a lot of telephone company trucks, I hear, thanks to folks who found the lots they parked in)

    New - well there are dozens (mostly from Northernsun.com) but some of my faves (which end up on tee shirts and/or buttons because we don't have a car, and the scooter design isn't good for them)

    START SEEING WHEELCHAIRS

    1/20/09 FIRST DAY WITHOUT BUSH

    WHERE ARE WE GOING, AND WHAT AM I DOING IN THIS HANDBASKET?

    VISUALIZE IMPEACHMENT

    and I havee to offer some from Nancy the wonderful button maker who also has some stickers. Among them

    GO AHEAD, HONK If I can hear you, you're in range

    Once you pull the pin from Mr. Grenade, he is no longer your friend.

    Red meat isn't bad for you. Fuzzy, green meat is bad for you!

    "Bother", said Pooh. "Eeyore, ready two photon torpedos and lock phasers on the Heffalump. Piglet, meet me in transporter room three."

    I'd better stop now.

  2. I Found Jesus!
    He was behind the couch the whole time.

  3. Also, from a t-shirt I still regret not buying:
    Practice Random Acts of Hamlet

  4. "If it's Tourist Season, why can't we shoot them?"

  5. This may not translate across the pond, but in the UK a while back there was a craze for 'such and such does it in such and such' stickers -- kind of nudge, nudge, wink wink ones like 'surfers do it standing up.'

    I loved the one relating to the soccer team and the county they were located in: "Luton Town do it in Beds."

  6. From the past:

    Rugby players have leather balls.

    Honk if you love cheeses. (from Wisconsin)

    Tell me again why I should vote for either of these assholes.

    From the (near) present:

    Laura Bush's car has killed more people than Tommy Chong's bong.

    Would somebody blow this guy so we can impeach him?

  7. I'd never seen "The Rapture is not an exit strategy" before. I'm liking that one.

    Old: "Visualize whirled peas" is a favorite. I also liked the driver who cut the "Practice random acts of kindness and senseless beauty" apart and just pasted "Practice random senseless acts" on his car.

    Oh, and one of Rain Dog's fellow teachers came to school the other day wearing a PETA t-shirt: "People Eating Tasty Animals."

  8. Oh, I like the God dropping acid one.

    My fave:

    Frodo lost, Bush has the ring.

  9. "Honk if you've never seen an Uzi fired through a car window"

    The funniest one I ever saw was

    Dukakis in '88


    Jim

    Just had to remind every one there are two sides to America's political equation whether we know it or not.

  13. I think another favorite oldie but goodie of mine was "Nice People Swallow," after a year and a half of every car in Boulder, Colorado having "Mean People Suck" stickers.

    Andi, you rule! I love the phone company one especially. Some things never go out of style. And "Mr. Grenade" is spit-take-funny.

    Daisy, yay for the Jesus Couch...AND Hamlet!!

    Louise, I wish it were legal in Carmel sometimes.

    Shaz, that is brilliant. I always wanted a bumper sticker based on the biblical passage that was my high school's motto: "Dobbs Girls Do It With Their Might."

    David, all great, but "Cheeses" is my favorite.

    Christa, I am a long-time fan of "Visualize Whirled Peas." The PETA one is also great.

    Nancy, love the Frodo... We need a pic with that.

    Paul, I love that one. Almost used it today here.

    Patty, I think we should start collecting Jesus ones, here. So many greats. I used to have a sticker of a very happy looking fish that had "PROZAC" written across its belly.

    Jim, thank you for being our token Red State dude. And I thought Dukakis was a joke too.

  14. Oh DAISY !!!! I WANT ONE!!!!

    There's also "visualize using turn signals".....

    Jim we KNOW, really. We don't need reminders. Really. honest.

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL, Cornelia, those stickers are great....

    One of my all time faves is "Unions: the people who brought you the 40 hour work week".

    Also remember fondly: "Beam me up, Scotty, this planet sucks".

    ;-)

    Although I live in a a Red state. At least I think it is. I'm not a Red State guy. Just ofering a counterpoint.

    It's kinda fun. I may do it more often.


    I think we do all need reminders.

  17. I BRAKE FOR HALLUCINATIONS

    WHEN THE RAPTURE COMES, CAN I HAVE YOUR CAR? (a reaction to the plethora of "When the Rapture Comes, This Car Will Be Unmanned" stickers we see here in the Bible Belt)

    JESUS LOVES YOU...(in smaller print) everyone else thinks you're a dick

    ReplyDelete
  18. Never can tell with Floridians, Jim. Plus I've been stuck in Berkeley so long it all looks pretty red to me. You know you're in trouble when San Francisco seems needlessly reactionary.

    Dusty, wanna carpool when the Rapture comes?

  19. Rae, I also love "The Labor Movement. The People Who Brought You the Weekend."

  20. Jesus Loves You,he's just not IN love with you

    REHAB is for quiters

    Spooning leads to forking

    WTFWJD?

    I'm not getting jiggy...I have Parkinsons

    Prozac, Because sometimes you feel like a nut,sometimes you don't

  21. Jon, I love WTFWJD?!

    And maybe we should make one that says "Jesus: He's Just Not That Into You."

  22. Rugby is a game played by men with funny-shaped balls :o)

  23. Frodo failed - Bush has got the ring

  24. My personal fav: God was my co-pilot, but we crashed in the mountains and I had to eat him.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Angie, that is both sick and brilliant.

  26. There was a big movement in my hometown a few years back that sparked a profusion of bumper stickers that read: WE STILL PRAY.

    This led to more bumper stickers reading:
    WE STILL READ
    WE STILL CHANT
    WE STILL PLAY BALL
    And, my favorite:
    WE STILL THINK YOU'RE CRAZY!
