What was the question?
Bumper stickers, for the most part, are really stupid. I have never understood why people put them on their cars. Okay, I get “Obama ’08” or other political stickers to show an affiliation, but when you just have a dumb slogan or some lame joke that you think is utterly hilarious, I as the driver behind you who has to read that dribble, find it offensive to my intelligence. The worst offenders are anyone who puts something on their car that follows the whole “Got Milk?” phenomenon. (which I still never quite understood why they have to advertise milk, don’t people buy that pretty regularly anyway…or cheese, or beef or any staple product, but that is a whole other story). Like these little gems…
What the fuck do these even mean? Clearly the “mpg” one is advertising to other drivers that they drive a hybrid or some other fuel efficient car and all other drivers who have yet to become enlightened by purchasing a hybrid should be reminded of just how much better this asshole is. And I could have listed 50 more of theses awful stickers. Further, this whole “got _____” craze makes people look unintelligent. You are trying to advertise that you support something in two words only…if you really cared that much about it at least put your support in a fucking sentence. “Do you have root?” (which still sounds retarded) “Do you have any milk?” And people wonder why America as a whole is so stupid. I blame our fascination on trying to dissect the world’s problems on a foot long sticker placed next to our exhaust pipe.
ALSO, the people who put like 50 bumper stickers on their cars, yeah, you guys need to die too. Please take your horrendous eyesore off the road. I’m surprised more car accidents aren’t caused by other people who are trying to read the catalog of useless information on the back of your ’84 Accord, while they are talking on the phone, changing the radio station and putting in a DVD for the kids. Speaking of kids…parents who put the “my child is an honor student at Roosevelt Elementary” sticker on their car, you suck too. Really, an honor student in third grade, how did your junior Einstein become so brilliant? He must have really nailed penmanship and subtraction. If you are that proud of your kid’s achievements before they hit puberty, you may be in for many long and disappointing years of your little angel’s scholastic attempts.
You may wonder where this rant came from…in all reality I had one thing I wanted to mention and got off on a tangent. But my original point was, I was driving today behind a truck with an excruciatingly clever sticker that said “Trees are the answer.” Really? What the fuck was the question? If you had another sticker that said “where paper comes from,” or “They have leaves and branches,” then yes, trees are actually the answer. Thank you for imparting that knowledge to me truck guy. But unfortunately there are about 7 trillion other questions where trees definitely are not the answer like, “what makes a good sweater?” or “Who discovered gravity?” Congratulations Mr. “trees are the answer,” you are an idiot and I hate you. I could bitch about this for a long time, God bumper stickers are stupid.
