Yesterday, I drove behind 57 bumperstickers that had a car attached to their sticky side.

I had a bumpersticker on my car when I was 19.  That seemed about right...  I'm just not sure what to think nowadays when I see them.  Are these convincing people to change their mind on an issue?
I sure hate that mother earth.  I want to punch it straight in the throat.  What's that on the blue four door?  Love Mother Earth.  Hmmmm...maybe I shouldn't punch Earth in the throat.  Maybe I should love my mommy planet.
I was going to vote for Steve Cannon, but that sticker told me to vote for Mike Kelly.  I guess that's what I'll do.
Is it just advertising to convince dumb people?  Maybe dumb is strong...but easily swayed?  Do you want them on your side?  They're just going to switch back when they get back on the turnpike.
And if your kid is an honor student, they should be smart enough to pull your sticker off the car while you're casting your vote for Mike Kelly (I hear he punches planets)


  1. I stopped putting stickers on my car when I was 19 also. Not because I thought I looked dorky, but because someone spit on my car for my political affiliation. Looking back now, I wish I would've gleaned something from the spit, rather than them picking my side because of the sticker.

  2. Murph,
    What is your stance on snarky fun bumper stickers, such as "I conquered the hemorrhoid hot wings at Ted's Bar" or "My other car is your mom"?
