I Like Bumper Stickers

Posted by Hello

This picture looks a little fuzzy but what it's all about is the next flippin' election. I get looks from my fellow drivers that can best be described as puzzled. I like watching their faces reflected in my rearview mirror. As we're stuck in traffic or at stoplights, I watch them. Some stay puzzled, some figure it out. Some look disgusted and shoot me a "you poor loser" kind of look. But this next election can't come a moment too soon for me and billions of other folk. Those other folk may not have a vote in the U.S. but the impact of a Republican president for EIGHT WHOLE YEARS is nothing short of devastating to so very many who share this planet. Forget all the Americans who are being left child left behind...HAH! Think for a few minutes about all the other people in this beautiful world who are being impacted by the current baboons in power and who will be affected for years to come, just as all of our children will be, by the following: THE ENVIRONMENT, FAMILY PLANNING, CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER, ENDANGERED SPECIES. I won't go into health care, education, gun control, Iraq or any of the other very important issues that cause the world to look at this nation with puzzlement at best, and hatred at worst.

So that's why I have one bumper sticker that reads 11.04.08. That is the date of the next presidential election. The other bumper sticker reads January 20, 2009. That is the date of the next Inauguration. Check out Cafe if you're interested in finding some similar decorations for your car.

11/4/08 seems like forever from now. I don't even wanna think about it.

Thank you for your comment! We're hoping for cute babies with large chins, and we think we have a pretty good shot at getting some. ;o)

I would just like to testify to my mothers "fear" (phobia is more like it) in regard to rodentia and the like. I should preface this story with a warning to all people below swearing age. Sorry kids, but in this one dottnana gets PRO-FANE.

Ok, so here goes, when I was about 23 I lived a few miles from mom and dad in Milwaukee with a couple of mates. One afternoon I was sitting around and the phone rang. I picked it up, lazy sat afternoon style and mom shrieks in my ear..."THERE'S A FUCKING MOUSE IN OUR BEDROOM!!!" Top of her lungs-yells it. I mean it sounded like she had found a body or something. Short story long I agree to come over and dispose of aforementioned offender. I walk into the house and mom is upstairs screaming and swearing a blue streak that would make a sailor blush. I go upstairs and mom is standing on the desk, straight out of movies. Turns out a tiny field mouse was lost and found himself in their bedroom. He being so small mom mistook him for a piece of fluff and, get this, went down to pick it up. Compound a fear of mice with a near touch situation and you now know how to get my mom to lose her shit. Anyway, that story is one of my faves because it is soooo out of character for the ever so collected, clean-mouthed Linda.

Oh, on a happy-continuation of women in my life note- right before I moved out to NYC from Minny I recieved a phone call from my girlfriend crying and also generally losing it. 2 Squirrels had chewed their way through her screen and made their presence known by jumping out at her when she moved some boxes. She said I better f'ing get over there toot sweet...It reminded me of dear old mum.

Oh Colin, That DID make me laugh. I well remember that phone call, but as I remember it was around 9 AM, you were sound asleep and Dad was off playing soccer somewhere. I woke you up...what a wake-up call. A screw loose mama on the phone. Sheesh. I need to get a grip on the rodent thing. Love you, Mum
