Bumper Sticker, Schmumper Sticker

What's Wrong with you People?

What ever happened to the funny bumper stickers?
"Beam me up Scottie"
"My wife's other car is a broom"
"A bad day fishing, is better than a good day at work"

Or my favorite:

Yesterday as the Ali-cat and I were heading to my BLF's house for a little sup, my little Honda Fit settled in behind this massive, go-anywhere, urban assault 4 x4. First thing I noticed was NOT the Deer Antlers mounted to each side of the truck. It wasn't the "Redneck" window decal either. Nope, the first thing I noticed was his bumper sticker:

"I'm stompin' on the gas and Kickin' @ss!"

Cop, "Do you realize you were speeding?"
Redneck, "Can't you read Detective Fife? Of course I was speeding. That's what happens when you're 'Stompin' on the Gas, and kickin' @ss!"

Yeah, Bubba, a little hard to be clandestine there. He also had another sticker, but I don't remember and by the time I could my camera out to photograph this teachable moment, he was gone. He really was 'stompin' on the gas,' so I'm glad I didn't catch up to see what he was doing next!

Ali and I had a wonderful meal with the BLF and we then headed out. Within one mile Ali was able to point out another classy window decal. It simply showed a hand with only one finger extended, and if the dude was claiming to be number 1, he wasn't using the traditional finger to do so!

Cop, "So, did I see you giving the finger to that old lady?"
Redneck, "Can't you see Detective Fife? It's what I do, check out the window decal!"

I like the bumper sticker the wife, we'll call her "Saralee," has on her Jeep ... "Just Be Nice" ...

I like the Seinfeld episode where Jerry is dating a girl who can get out of anything, and to test her skill, Jerry speeds and gets pulled over.

Cop says, "Do you know what the speed limit is?"

Jerry replies, "Around 55."

Cop says, "Do you know how fast YOU were driving?"

Jerry replies, "A lot faster than THAT!"

I always wanted to use that one...even if I don't know what it has to do with bumper stickers.

Star, did Jerry get out of the ticket?

And Chase, I no longer do bumper stickers at all, I just say funny stuff, but I can always deny it later!

Yeah, Ange, "I don't what you THOUGHT you saw" will always be a winner!

I don't have a bumper sticker, see, that would involve driving and I run everywhere.

But if I did have a bumpersticker it would say,

You're jealous and I'm....
