He yelled, "Stick 'em up!" -- and let two fly.
I sat right behind one of my biggest pet peeves all the way down to Clearwater this morning: the lopsided bumper sticker. Now I don't expect people to go out and get a level when they slap 'em on their cars, but nothing drives me more berserk than to see a brand new car sporting a sticker Ray Charles could've placed on there better. Yes, I'm an anal perfectionist. But it's my belief that if you're going to spend upwards of $20-grand on an au-to-mo-biiile, at least take the time to place your buck-fitty sticker in a straight line on top of it. And don't even get me started on people who put the damn things directly on the paint itself...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

maybe stevie wonder put it on instead.

The people with the Jesusfish emblem on the backs of their cars are my favorites. WWJD? According to these people, he'd change lanes without signaling, pull out in front of you, make a lot of obscene hand gestures and use the f-word a lot.

Shortly after those things got popular, somebody came out with the Darwinfish, which had feet. I liked it, but the best, (and I've only seen it once), was a big fat round fish emblem that said Buddha inside. If I could find one of those, I'd buy it.

I can't even fathom spending $$K on a vehicle and putting any bumper sticker on it - straight or crooked.

Look no further, Dave!

1. Some

Awesome! I'm ordering one!

Hehe. You said anal.

Sorry. I'm a child. *hangs head*

I'm with Camille--I can understand an old car but I see brand new ones with the sticker right on the paint and I just cringe. LOL

Oh Christ, Robyn, thanks a load. There goes my next pay check. *sigh*

I'm with you on the whole bumper sticker thang, though. Drives me bonkers.

That's why I won't desecrate my new 2002 van with the likes of a bumper sticker....:)

Cool, Pete. We just got a 2002 van too. Got it cheap when the 2003's rolled in. No bumperstickers, either.

Buzz, I was on the verge of leaving the exact same comment, so don't feel too bad. :)

Hey, at least I didn't say anal sacks!

If only there were more women out there who would proudly proclaim that they're Anal Perfectionists, all would be right with the world.

Yeah, yeah, I know...but I was obsessing over blowjobs last week, remember? I had to move on to something new.

I had actually thought about putting a sticker in the back of my car window that said my college name. But I just couldn't do it to the poor car. She didn't deserve to have apermanent sticky spot in her window forever. ;) So its hanging on my bulletin board instead!!

I'm obsessed with things having to be straight, too, btw ;)

Wills is guilty, Robyn...

I bought him a sticker for Christmas and he plopped it on the truck all crooked. Makes me nuts...specially considering how anal he is about everything...

*shakes head*

I'm in Camille's camp. I can't imagine paying the kind of money that vehicles cost and then slapping a sticker on it. No stickers on mine except necessary parking permits.
