As a rule, I’m not a big fan of bumper stickers; I don’t really care about the politics, religious beliefs, honor students, or grandchildren of those whom I happen along while driving from Point A to Point B. Furthermore, I feel safe in assuming that none of my fellow travellers on the open road care about mine either.
This morning while driving home from work I came across a vehicle that had four bumper stickers pasted to its back end. What stuck out for me was how strange those particular bumper stickers looked on that particular vehicle. Below I will tell you what they said, and as I do I want you to imagine what kind of car you would see such things on. Then click at the bottom for the “big reveal.”
The top left sticker: “I’m speeding because I really have to poop” and featured a nice little artist’s rendition of said product.
The bottom left sticker: A drawing of a hand giving the finger next to a large letter “U” in collegiate font. Get it? Isn’t it clever?
The top right sticker: a slogan so crude that consideration for my female readership prohibits me from repeating it.
The bottom right sticker: “I don’t have an attitude problem, you’re just an ___hole.”
Now what sort of vehicle would you expect to see these kinds of stickers on? Hold that thought and click on “rest of entry” below..
Yeah, that’s right: the owner of a Toyota Yaris wanted us to know how radical and cool he is. Aren’t you impressed?
I am not being elitist. Like most working people my guiding principle in spending money is not “What do I want?” but “What can I afford?”. Regardless, I think that if you are going to paste obnoxious bumper stickers on your car to show everyone you have “attitude” you should be driving a car with an attitude. With all do respect to Toyota and their consumers, the Yaris just doesn’t cut it.
