Probably not a new one, but one I saw driving down Foothill Blvd, just above a JPL license plate frame on a brown Volvo:

"If this car looks blue, you're driving too fast."

NASA Propellerhead humor, gotta love it!

Haven't seen that one. Very funny, that propellerhead humor.

I dunno . . . sounds like one of them Doppler-Gangers.

So to speak.

Saw one last week that had, I think, a drawing of a cell phone along the left margin, and said:

"Jesus called. He wants his religion back."

David, how do you see all these stickers if your nose is in a book while you're walking?

(Rhetorical, i remember your peripheral vision and closed-book calming effect for drivers).

Just watch out for the one that says 'I Don't Brake For Bibliophiles.'

* chuckle that almost became a coughing fit *

Well done, sir. I knew what you were talking about with just your first sentence.

Let me say that since I live in a carless household, I do a LOT of walking -- to and from work, to and from movie theaters and stage theaters (sometimes for rehearsals and performances in which I am featured, and sometimes just as a spectator), to and from the library (a gasping three blocks away, just like my office), and to and from meals out (usually in the company of the Missuz).

I don't read EVERY time I'm walking. I especially don't read if I'm in a big hurry, which often happens, because I ignore all electronic traffic signals, jaywalk, cut across parking lots and streetcar/rapid transit lines (which are all also within five blocks of our apartment), and my spouse doesn't take too kindly to my reading in her company if she isn't also doing so.

So now and then I notice things around me.

"Don't Believe Everything You Think"


Also, saw a young fella wearing a T-shirt which pictured a bomber, and read "Democracy - We Deliver"

Saw one yesterday.
"Monica Lewinsky's Boyfriend's Wife for President"

Guess that one'll come off soon.

Not a bumpersticker, but a T shirt (on a teen, of course):

"Homework kills trees

Stop the madness!"

Saw these in Orange County, of all places:

"200 days until 'Bush' is just a plant.
Oh, wait..."

and


"January 20, 2009
Independence Day"

A decent one: "I support separation of church and hate"


Great T-shirts this week. I saw one on a fairly scrawny looking woman that said "Vagina is for Lovers."

A portly man in a Yankees baseball cap also was wearing a shirt that said, "If you lick it, they will come."

And finally, the guy who was wearing a shirt that said:

"The Top Ten Reasons I Procrastinate:
1."

I did see one that read "Dyslexics Are Teople Poo" which caused me to smile greatly....
