Bumper Sticker Philosophy

Imagine, if you will, that you can learn 95% of what a person is about from reading his/her bumper stickers. Maybe people would think twice about what they put on their cars if they thought like me. How about this one I saw while sitting at a green light recently:

I am suffering from a Sexually Transmitted Disease: Children!

Someone had blackened-out the last word. Probably a baby Einstein graduate. In any case, the driver went blindly on her way, texting and applying make-up, apparently unaware of her rear-end proclamation.

I get some of my best thinking done in the car, and lately my best reading. How about this one?  This is someone I would certainly like to get to know better…

I saw Elvis making crop circles

He also had some sort of Star Wars symbol and an elf membership sticker.

I am going to start a new job: I will make up sarcastic and witty lines for the bumper sticker market. Someone writes these things; certainly people are buying them. How hard can it be? I just have to try and come up with something completely strange and mix it with the ordinary. Here goes…

BEWARE: writer inside, you may end up in one of her novels…or at least her blog!

Okay, maybe I’ll stick to novels and freelance. What’s on your bumper?

    LOL!!! nice chuckle over my morning coffee ~ Thanks Sally!!!
    so, onto the question/subject at hand – or should I just take a picture of my rear-end and post it??? (-: Let’s see, there is “Have you had your MASSAGE today?” There is
    “Eat Kale More”, “Listen to Children” (my personal favorite), “Buy Local”, WMPG, MPBN, ABMP, “RocketFuel”, “Ashiatsu”, and an “Om” symbol . . . .
    so, learn anything new about me? (-:

    Shan and I have the (dis)pleasure of seeing many a bumper sticker as we stroll around the neighborhood and have across a delightful individual with more bumper stickers than brain cells [2].

    One reads “My inner child is a mean little f*****!” all spelled out in plain English for all the boys and girls to read.
    The other one is so inappropriate as to not be mentioned on here.
    This class act is brought to you by “Poor parenting, ruining America one child at a time”

    My bumper stickers read like my mind, blank.

    Thanks for the AM chuckle!

    While I have seen some funny bumper stickers, I have seen some offensive bumper stickers. Since buying a newer car, I will have to say that my “rear is clear!” ha ha. However if I did decide to decorate my bumper w/a sticker, it would probably read “Foster a Child, Foster a Future!” or “Adopt A Child,” type stickers…Linda, I would put a few of yours on “my rear” too!! ha ha………

    I think I have only one…it’s a Patriots sticker! That about sums it up! I have several on my fridge, one reads “No Farms, No Food, Buy Local!”. I think if I added that one to my car, that would sum me up…yup sports and good, local food! 🙂
