Bumper Sticker Culture

(pre-script: To get the most out of this post, possibly including, but not limited to, a little bit of common sense, go down to the playlist, click on the song "Big yellow Taxi," covered here by the Counting Crows, or "The Boys of Summer," by Don Henley. I'll wait...) (...still waiting...)

"...Out on the road today,
I saw a Deadhead sticker on a cadillac.
A little voice inside my head said
'don't look back, you can never look back.'"*

While driving today, I saw a green minivan with two distinctive bumper stickers. The first one said "Where she is queen, He is king" In the middle was a picture of Mary holding baby Jesus. They both had halo's over their heads. The other bumper sticker was for a Catholic Radio station.
Please let me know if your life has ever been changed by a bumper sticker.
That's all I have to say about that,
For shizzle.

*From the song "The Boys of Summer," by Don Henley

Bumperstickers are fascinating and I try to drive ahead of the car after I read them to see whose car it is and the person who puts what they do on their car.

not changed, but some have made me think, or have some sort of reaction, which is partially what they are designed to do right? also i have formed complete pictures in my head of what the person in the car must be like based entirely on their bumper stickers.

Oh and license plate frames too...some of those are just as interesting as the bumper stickers.
