Bumper Sticker Pet Peeves

Hello There My Little Peeps,

So............ we've all been there. Stuck in traffic behind someone with an annoying bumper sticker. I have to say, some of them are funny, but most of them are pretty lame.

But you have to admit, if you have a strong opinion and you wanna let the world know it, get a bumper sticker, because when you are in traffic, the people riding your ass are a guaranteed audience for a while. Why not just give 'em a piece of your mind and tell them what to think ?

Anyway, here are my pet peeves when it comes to bumper stickers.

1.) "My child is an honor student at ------- Junior High/High". Seriously, who cares ? I'll start caring once your child is in the ivy leagues and beats me out of a job in an interview. Until then, it's just annoying and I guarantee the other parents don't care because they are too busy plastering those stickers on their vehicles. You know what's even more annoying ? Is that bumper sticker on a minivan.

If you want to build up your child's self esteem or reward them for good grades, give them ice cream or whatever the new gadgets are that parents give their children nowadays like a Playstation or a Wii. Otherwise, they don't care about a bumpersticker and neither do we.

You know what I would love ? The bumper sticker that reads "My juvenile delinquent son is banging your honor roll student daughter."

2.) Bumper stickers regarding abortion, pro-life or pro-choice. So now we're gonna debate it on the road ??? Why would someone put that on their car and risk pissing off the person behind them ?

Wanna know what's even more annoying ? Is when I see an abortion sticker on a car and a man is behind the wheel.

3.) Old presidential campaign stickers. Seriously, Obama won ! 2008 is sooo two years ago. He's the president now so that means that you don't have to convince others to pick him. Shouldn't you be focusing on 2012 ?

I will tell you the bumper sticker that I recently saw, which made my day. It read " Four out of five dentists prefer oral sex over oral surgery. " Priceless.

So that is all for now, loves.

Till next time.

Besitos !

What a great post! I agree with it all, especially re: abortion stickers. Great point about pissing off the person behind you!

I like the ones that say, "My kid can beat up your honor student!"

Or
"Jesus is my co-pilot" on a car that is lost. I think, "Yeah, but he's not much of a navigator, is he?"

I dislike the outdated political stickers, too.

I don't have any bumper stickers. I do however, have a sticker on my motorcycle helmet that says, "Helmet Laws Suck" with a corresponding set of lips wrapped around the words.

Lips?
Yes, I have noticed your lips are beautiful, like your eyes.

Lol. This reminds me of the greatest bumper sticker I ever saw in my life... "I'm only speeding because I really have to poop."

I am with you 100% on the bumper stickers. I'm all for making opinions known, if it's not something that could potentially make some fantasize about running you off the road.

The back of my car has a few.. I have stick figures of me and the girls. Another of a pony, with my horse's name under it. And lastly, I have one that says, "Note to Self: I'm Rad". Yep.

I don't really see what's the harm with the honor student stickers, though most people I know say they hate them.

My favorite I ever saw was on a woman's little chickmobile, and it said "Grow your own stupid, plant a man."

On my car I have "Born OK the first time", and "Sorry I missed church but I was busy practicing witchcraft and becoming a lesbian."

The glue on the damn things is the strongest in the world. Sometimes the sticker is holding the car together.

I totally agree. I hate bumper stickers. I have NONE on any of my cars. I'm sick of seeing old presidential stickers regardless of who they're for. I'm still seeing "W"s around here and there even.

LOL.......Well, i don't have a car, but in NIGERIA, people go for the religious stickers especially that of their church. There are some that do annoy me like, JESUS IS MY BULLDOZER! Why for all that is good & holy would someone compare a HEAVEN HOST with a f*****g machine?

Realliveman said...

HA. Funny!

Bumppr sticks don't piss mne off much becasue they are just words on a sticker. I have better things to worry about then some prefabed opinion. Like the guy next to me putting on makeup and eating a big mac while reading his newpaper. That guy scares me! LOL

The 'honor student' bumper stickers doesn't bother me... build your child's self esteem any way you can. Don't hate!!

Saying that, the sticker that says 'my kid beat up your honor student' was kind of funny. But given the recent news about kids bullying other kids... maybe not so much.

The pro-choice and the pro-life stickers do make me wonder about the kind of a-hole the driver could be... not to mention the pro-gun stickers. Make me wonder if the redneck driving the car wouldn't mind hunting not only Bambi... but anyone else who got lost in the woods!!

bumper stickers AND personalized license plates drive me bonkers.

Danielle said...

My absolute favorite post yet!
Please make the "My juvenile delinquent son is banging your honor roll student daughter."
I would so put that on my car!

the eternal list said...

i was an honor student, but i never banged a juvenile-delinquent daughter...

:(

Choleesa said...

hahahaha, I was the juvenile delinquent...
I think the sticking of the honor roll sticker is more to shut the damn kid up, than it is actually bragging. "Mommy, Sarahs mom put HER bumper sticker on the car, why wont you put mine on?" That sort of thing. I saw a chick with a bumper sticker that read "I beat bitches down" I want one of THOSE stickers.

A Bumper sticker on a Motorcycles is blasphemy.

"A Bumper sticker on a Motorcycles is blasphemy."


Very true words. That is why patches were invented.

Red Shoes said...

I agree... the paste on the bumper stickers is like the stuff that the aircraft black boxes is made of... damn near indestructable...

I see a few bumper stickers I like... but not many... I would like the dentists/oral sex one... Im not a dentist, but oral sex?? Sign me up, Scooter... I'm ready to go...

And yes, the one about 'my JD son is banging your honor roll daughter'... that one too...

:oD

I think I have seen something very similar to your preferred version of the honor roll bumper sticker.

And that last one is awesome. :)

There's a bumper sticker in a Smashing Pumpkins video that says "Proud Parents of a D Student". Love it.

Funnnnnnny!
I don't have bumper stickers as a rule, just have an aversion to them. Although your suggested honor roll student sticker might change my mind (chuckles).

Glad you are having fun!

Ily said...

LOL @ Fireblossom's sticker...and I love the one you suggested about the delinquent son!

Hope you had a sweet hump day, amiguita!
