    In general I despise the things.

    We've all seen those vehicles slathered with hundreds promoting the owner's point of view. I say less is more in the "wear your convictions on your bumper" department.

    What say you?

    **I will admit that I did have a sticker announcing the last day of George Bush's term in office. It's since been removed.

    I abhor bumper stickers and the bumper sticker thinking it reflects.

    With one exception- I once saw a bumper sticker that said " ESCHEW OBFUSCATION"
    I thought that was pretty funny...

    otherwise... leave them off your car...The only fucking thing I need to know about the asshole n front of me is whether they know how to drive a car...

    Mostly I think they're exceptionally lame too. I do have one on my car though, a graphic image of Brak. Kinda like this but without the background:

    I did once see one I thought was clever. It read...Only you can prevent narcissism.

    My cars have always been adorned with many stickers... I don't have any on my current car, yet, but I'll be getting some soon I hope.

    I've never had political stickers on my car though. They're usually bands and funny sayings. Couple happy bunny stickers here and there. Had a couple on my last car that I wish I could've scraped off and used again. One said, "I used to be Snow White, but I drifted." And another one said, "Get any closer and I'll eat you."

    I miss those. :frown1:

    The stupidity that can come out of alot of bumper stickers never ceases to amaze me except more than the driver of the vehicle itself. Like, there was this one that read, "No, you suck. signed the mean people. " or, "If you're gonna ride my ass, then at least pull on my hair" But there are one or two that have their merits, considering the last 9 yrs. Like one I saw that read, "UNIVERSAL TERRORIST HUNTING PERMIT #91101. NO BAG LIMIT GOOD THROUGH 2050."

    I hate bumper stickers as well, but I must admit I have one on my back window. It reads (yellow script, black background) "I SEE DUMB PEOPLE"

    I saw that sticker a few years back and just couldn't resist. Some people are horrified at it, but I see many people pointing at it and laughing.

    I must admit, I once had a bumper sticker for my own car some time ago that read, "Unless you're a hemmorhoid, get off my ass!!" Well, that was my destructive phase, you know.

    Then, and I don't know if I told this story once, but there was this idiot I saw driving down I-95 south with NY plates on his minivan that read, "You lost get over it". That was about the point we were in GA, so steering clear of this guy was a necessity if not desire.

    Political bumper stickers: Ugly. An indication of general lowbrow mentality. Rarely ever employed to enlighten or entertain, instead meant to offend and annoy.

    As if complex topics can be effectively boiled down to one-liners.

    I guess for some people they can.

    I have issues with the i need to advertise that I have a family and pets stickers. Either the stick figures, flip flops, etc... I really don't give a toss about your spouse/partner, kids, or pets. Really annoying.

    The most annoying bumpah sickah of all time is that yellow sign "Baby on Board!"

    The comedian Gallagher actually made a joke of it and during one of his routines pulled a fake baby nailed to a piece of plywood out of a trunk on the state.

    Sumpin like dis --- BABY ON BOARD!

    I fucking howled.

    I saw one that kind of made me chuckle.

    "If it has tits or a carburator, it's gonna give you trouble"


    Of course I had just went through my divorce, and know how unpredictable auto's can be, lol

    Not a sticker but a magnet. I drive a 93 Ford Escort and get passed by big trucks all the damn time so mine reads "Nice truck, sorry about the small penis"
