"You Know, You're The Kind Of Guy I'd Really Like To Hang Around With"

I've always enjoyed reading bumper stickers. They offer some great insights into human nature, and the personality of the person who chooses to display them on their vehicle. Well, the other day, I happened to be perusing this guy's handy mobile library, and I swear my brain was on the verge of exploding:

For one general group of people, he has Grateful Dead and Phish stickers, "God Bless The Whole World -- No Exceptions," "Keep your but in the car. The Earth is not your ashtray.," a Newbury Comics logo, and "got ink?"

For those of a contrasting political bent, he has "Annoy A Liberal - Work hard and be happy," "Work Harder. Millions On Welfare Depend on You!," "Get US Out! of the United Nations," "No Whining," and "WELCOME TO AMERICA - NOW SPEAK ENGLISH." And his two candidate stickers are for Republicans -- Vermont governor Jim Douglas and state Senator Wendy Wilton.

Then, for the freaks out there, "What Would Scooby Do?" and "I DON'T BRAKE FOR YANKEES FANS."

Yes, this guy was from Vermont, but he was in New Hampshire when I saw his truck.

This is the kind of guy I think I could get along with...

(Bonus points to the first person who identifies the two lines I stole from legendary standup comics, and the comics who first used the lines.)

That's genuinely interesting. Most of the time when I see a vehicle that heavily covered with bumper stickers, they're all for lefty stuff. Consies are usually more restrained in their bumper decorations.

I was trying to get back to Iraq from my leave. While getting out of our car at Kansas City International, my wife started to laugh out loud. There was a blue Toyota hybrid with a bumper sticker that read "Republicans for Obama". I wonder who that person thought they were fooling?

My kind of guy too. Not much of a phish fan, don't know the candidate's - but otherwise we're on the same wavelength. Not all dead fans are smelly facists...

Have you seen the study from Colorado State on the link between bumper stickers and road rage.

It seems that that driver in cars with bumper stickers are more likely to exhibit road rage than those who's rides are unadorned. They said what side of the political spectrum they were from didn't factor into it.

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2008/06/16/Bumper_stickers_may_predict_road-rage/UPI-24271213628945/

Actually, if you ignore the headlines and look at the details of the study, they were more likely to lean on their horn when the driver in front of them didn't react quickly enough when the light turned green.
