Bumper stickers




I have this on the back of my car. It is for all you Audi, BMW and Astra drivers out there. You know who you are.

The one I covet I saw on a japanese 4x4. It said "Caution, Driver doesn't give a shit anymore."

Issues Lilith..? We all know that nobody will be such a considerate driver as ourselves.
Personally when I am out in the old Daimler I am a veritable knight of the road.
But if you ever fancy a bit of tail gating... Lord I don't know what's gotten into me..!

Lilith said...

Behave Mr Modo! Besides, I am quite sure that you have a Reliant Robin...

I used to enjoy driving an old Landrover with rusty protruding bolts that advertised very clearly I didn't give a shit, no sticker required

samples of paint and chrome from other cars on the bumpers served to reinforce the point

lilith the best bumper stickers i've seem here in the USA are:

"I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney than have Ted Kennedy Give Me a Ride."

and

Paddle Faster (I Hear Banjo Music)Popular in the south due to the film deliverance!!!

The Americans have this whole bumper sticker thing down. One of my favorites, seen during George Bush Senior's campaign

"The only good Bush is Barbara's"

Nick, I find it is best not to spend too much money on a car. Otherwise I would be anxious about my paintwork. However, the idiots behind me who want to get close enough to read my bumper sticker at 60 mph scare me witless. I am not a slow driver. My car is nippy.

I have two cars - one is a Suzuki Alto. It has a reflective lorry type sticker on it "Short Vehicle"

I'm thinking of having one made up "Caution, Yoghurts on board" as a snook at "Caution, child on board" You see, when the boys were in Moses baskets we'd gone shopping to Tescos and I'd rounded a corner too sharply. Mrs E-K "Be carefull ! We've got yoghurt on board !" Talk about priorities.

Lilith,

Great!

The best car back window sign I ever saw was in Brighton; years ago.

'I've seen Lord Lucan'!

Of course, the lions of longleat were pussycats then...

Good message.

I like swerving in front of them.

Repressed homosexuals, I'm sure.

Lilith: Talking of Motors again. I`ve got my eye on a new black BMW convertible, but ever cautious Mr Trube thinks it not practical in the present monsoon conditions. I did point out to him that I wouldn`t be driving with "lid off" in the rain.
Using my incredible powers of persuasion "must off" to the Galley to create a culinary marvel of Lamb Tajine and piquant Cous Cous followed by Minty Creme Brule`and Boozy Summer Fruits.
That should do the trick ! Failing that it`s back to the basque and wellies ! Never fails !

My girl aged 3: Mummy, I know what "wanker" means!

Me: Gulp! Do you darling?

My girl aged 3: Yes, it means Bad Driver!
