I'm not given to wearing tee-shirts with catchy slogans, but I will wear the two my mom sent me recently.

a) "Never judge a book by its movie"

and

2) New Yorker cartoon of a guy talking to the cashier at a bookstore: "This is my first book. But if I like it, I may buy another in the near future."

Have y'all seen any good ones lately?

It used to be considered witty by some who had old, run-down cars to have a bumper sticker that read "My other car is a Porsche." After those had been around for quite some time, I got a big laugh when I saw a bumper sticker on a particularly rusty-looking bucket of bolts that read "My other car is a piece of s**t too."

I once saw a bumper sticker on some flash car (sorry, don't remember what it was - I'm a girly girl in that respect!) that said, "My other car is a Volkswagen Beetle." Wow. A custom-made bumper sticker...!

Fave bumper sticker I've heard about, but not seen:

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards while wearing high heels

Fave t-shirt I saw in a catalogue once:

wysiwyg

And fave recently-acquired t-shirt:

YOU DON'T KNOW ME
Federal Witness Protection Program

Most appropriate bumper sticker, seen on a car that had slewed across the sidewalk and hit a telephone pole:

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Bumper stickers I wish I had:

If you're rich, I'm single

and

So many men, so few who can afford me

(and surprisingly enough, they don't really reflect my attitude! but I just find them a hoot...anyway, I wouldn't put a bumper sticker on my baby - I like a pristine car. But I like reading them on other people's cars! Wonder who on earth first came up with the idea of the bumper sticker?)

just saw a bumper sticker yesterday that was a new one to me:

Marijuana: Hey, at least it's better than crack.

My favourite T-shirt which has now gone to that great big rag-bag in the sky, had a picture of two vultures on a tree branch under a blazing sun. One is saying to the other: "Patience my ass. I'm gunna KILL something!"

My favourite bumper sticker is on 'er indoors' office wall: "Jesus is coming. Look busy!"

Not recent, but used to own
top front: CHILKOOT CHARLIE'S
bottom front: A Rustic Alaskan Saloon
back: We cheat the other guy .... and pass the savings on to you!


And of course the bumper sticker I like most is "You! Outta the gene pool!"

Bikers have a good sense of humour. Two I've seen recently:

1. (Pink t-shirt): Help me! I'm a lesbian trapped inside this big, fat hairy biker!

2. (On the back): If you can read this then the bitch fell off

I suspect there's enough variety in this list to offend most everyone:

BUMPER STICKERS
1. Jesus loves you... everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

2. Impotence: Nature's way of saying "No hard feelings."

3. The proctologist called, they found your head.

4. Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

5. Some people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them.

6. I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

7. WANTED: Meaningful overnight relationship.

8. Hang up and drive.

9. If you can read this, I can slam on my brakes and sue you!

10. Heart Attacks... God's Revenge For Eating His Animal Friends.

11. Try not to let your mind wander. It is too small to be out by itself.

12. Don't like my driving? Then quit watching me.

13. Guys, just because you have one, doesn't mean you have to be one.

14. Welcome to America...Now speak English.
