Holy shit, I was going to mention I saw that t-shirt here as well. How trippy is that? David needs to buy me one.

T-Shirt: "So this Irish man walks out of a bar . . .

Don't laugh! It could happen!"

There's an anti-drug organization called DARE. It's an acronym that stands for drug abuse resistance education. They have their bumper stickers, which say, "DARE to keep kids off drugs."
I have one, that says "DARE to think for yourself," and looks like the original.

I have another one that says, "please take my flag off of your foreign car." I just love it when these faux-patriots have sixteen Chinese made American flags attached to their Korean made SUV, that have been blowing in the breeze since 1982, and look like a rag. As a matter of fact, I have told several that their flag is a disgrace, and should be given a proper burial. FYI, I drive a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am.


BTW-- Did you know that acronym SUV actually stands for Stupid Useless Vehicle?

Attached to some funky Hunydai. (I don't know how to spell it, I don't want to look it up and the spell check's got nothin'.)

"After the rapture, can I have your car?"

Lost it on that one.

Aw, Steve. Pretty sure that one was aimed at the Rapture folks, not the Hyundai owner's self-deprecation.
Hell, it coulda been a BM and I still would love it.
Nice ride.

Two bumper stickers I'd like to make:

I'm Allergic to Stupid


Then there's a bumper sticker I've seen, probably created by a certain cult:

Psychiatry Kills


I'd like to make one in reply that says:

Cults Kill

Not a sticker but a T-shirt I saw a while ago. I was at work when a co-worker comes at me fast and says, real quiet but intense, "Paul, go look at the black t-shirt at register 5. Now, go now, before it's gone." So I saunter my way across the front and there was a portly thirty-something man with a mess of facial hair, a camouflage baseball cap buying a twelve pack of PBR. His shirt had an outline of an AK-47 (of this I am sure, this wasn't even an American made weapon) with the slogan Vote From The Rooftops.

Yeah, I was non-plussed as well.

And yet, I'm still not sure. Was he displaying his patriotism? Love of the 2nd amendment? Or, as I suspect, did he think it was a thoughtful 'message' that he vaguely thought was cool, without actually understanding and just completely ignorant of how asinine it made him look?

Was he suggesting we shoot our elected representatives as they drive by? Gee. . .

Dunno. I mean, I probably would have worn that during my proto-punk days when I was sixteen/eighteen, sure. I would have saved it and worn it on Nov. 22, just to be a dick. But on anyone older than that, it just reeks of a Nugent-y mentality, the kind some uninformed people think is oh-so-clever but is, in reality, not.

Always buckle your seatbelt.

What, you don't like salad dressing? I like a nice Italian vinegarette. Ever try balsamic vinegar? Num-num.

That'd make a nice t-shirt or bumper sticker. "Cthulu loves you--With balsamic vinegar."
