Car Expressions

So today I was driving behind a truck that had a window decal on it something like this:

Which got me to thinking. Why would you want to put something like that on your car?? I mean, I can understand the fun ones like

BTW I need to get a new one of those for my new car. Hubby scraped my old one off the old car when we brought the new one home. I don't know WHY he didn't want to drive with that on the back of the car...

We see a lot of these here in the Central Valley

and these

and don't forget these! I'm always counting how many kids and pets people have on the back of their Suburbans.

The first time I saw one of these I was seriously tripping out. Then I started seeing them all over.

Living close to San Francisco sometimes we see these..

This one cracks me up but don't want to explain that to a kid who is just learning to read

Oh then then there is the whole ribbon magnet thing. I used to drive a Saturn, which has plastic door panels so I couldn't ever get one. Not that I really want one. They have them for every cause possible now.

Oh and of course you can't forget the antenna ornaments! I love the Jack In The Box ones. My car kind of has a weird antenna though so I don't think they would stay on very well now

AND license plate frames!

Not to mention vanity plates

And bumper stickers (I can't believe people actually stick these on the PAINT of their car!)

And if that isn't enough of a statement for you, you can just wrap up the whole thing in an ad!

So next time you are bored while waiting at a traffic signal just look around. You might find out that the person in the car ahead of you is catholic nymphomaniac with a soccer playing kid!Pin It

Ive always wanted a window sticker with little kids and my kids names (which are better than most kids names..its a show offy kind of thing)..but ive never done it.
We do have a window sticker that says, navyseals, and one that says, free men dont ask for the right to bear arms, compliments of my redneck, gun toting husband.

The carwrapping thing? Apparently they pay for all your gas. Where do I sign up?

I plead guilty to the sticker that shows 2 parents, 4 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats (gift from the kids). It is a kick to watch people stop, look, shake their heads and laugh. I did at one time sport the softball/broken window one.

Bumper stickers on the paint? Argh!

I'm always in awe of why people choose to use their cars to declare their positions on hot topics. I just think it's weird.

The ones I ABSOLUTELY don't get, are the fake tesicles usually hanging from trailer hitches on the back of cowboys trucks. Have you seen these? What the heck!?! This is the last thing I want my 6 year old looking at as we drive down the road.

Oh yes, I've seen those. They are pretty scary lol.

I'm not allowed to have stickers on my car, hubby absolutely cannot stand them at all.

However I do have one of the little yellow ribbon magnets that says 'support our troops' and occasionally I have to put magnets on for work too.

My sticker reads

'This is not an abandoned vehicle'

But the one I really want is
'You're just jealous that the voices speak to me and not you.'

love and hugs xxx
