Bumper stickers

So before I left for my drive home, I finally attached my Darwin Fish car emblem that I had bought back on Darwin Day. It now proudly sits opposite my Obama sticker. Though I have to say, I'm a little nervous driving with it now. I know whenever I see some jerk taking up two parking spaces, or cutting someone off, or tailgating, and then I see the "Marriage = Man + Woman" or equally annoying bumper sticker staring back at me...I can't help but think "Ha, well that explains it!" I know it's a bad thing to do, but it happens. I don't want to accidentally do some crappy driving and have someone go "Ha, a heathen, well that explains it!" I'm honestly more worried about that then someone keying my car, or snapping the Darwin fish's legs off (which happened to my friend).

Of course, I've been known to care too much about what people think of me, so maybe I'm just a little crazy.

Anyone share my opinion, or have some cool bumper stickers? I need to dig around and find my Republicans for Voldemort sticker. It's here somewhere, and would make the perfect addition!

  1. I had a Darwin Fish on the old car, but I haven't bothered putting one on the current one (which I've had for over a year, so it's probably not going to happen). Then again, I've become of the mind that if your views are easily summarized on bumper stickers, they're probably not that well-developed anyway, so the rear of my car remains unadorned.

    Incidentally, around here, it's almost always the Obama-sticker drivers who suck. Same back by my parents in Florida, actually, even though around here the Obama-stickers are attached to either junkers or Priuses, and back in Florida they're usually attached to minivans belonging to soccer moms on cell phones. Conservatives in Chicago tend to be fairly wealthy guys in suits, who are usually some of the best drivers. YMMV.

  2. I have a FSM! It makes me very happy every time I open the trunk, and, as yet, nobody has broken off the noodly appendages. Then again, I live in California, and rarely set foot in Orange County (land 'o the megachurches)...

    But for years I've been contemplating having police protective league bumper stickers printed, so that I can get the benefits of traffic violation laxity, but without actually, you know, having to donate to a charity for cops. But if I ever do such a thing, I'll probably ruin its efficacy by printing out thousands and handing them out at anarchist events just for the giggles.
