Fluent in Sarcasm

Could there be a bumper sticker that is better suited for me? We were behind this car on the way into the mall and wouldn’t you know my darling daughter grabbed for the camera before I needed to ask.

Love that kid.

It does blow my mind that someone would actually put this on their car. It’s one thing to have an edge, it’s another to announce it to everyone on the road.

Maybe someone put it on there and she has no idea!

Old Hippie Stylin’

We saw this guy at the same music festival where we saw the Hokey Pokey bumper sticker; it was quite an amusing day.

So, I look at this guy and I think, OK, this is a music festival and he is feeling his old hippie oats and wants to wear this outfit that makes him look like… well it makes him look like he just crawled out from under a rock. I mean, it’s not like he was wearing tie dye or something. This outfit was NEVER stylish in ANY era. The shoe and sock combo is to die for on their own but paired with the matching floral cabana set it is hard to look away from this fashion accident.

Anyone want to speculate whether he dresses like this everyday? And if yes, what do you think he does for a living?

What if?

 

Every once in awhile a bumper sticker comes along and makes you really think. Or really laugh. Or both. I texted this picture to my brother and his answer was, “Then I would have to turn myself around. It may be too late for that.” My response was that it is never too late.

So, my friends, I believe we could all do with a little philosophy of the hokey pokey. Think about it for a moment or two. If you think it is time to turn yourself around, go ahead.

You just never know.

Little Head Thinks

Saw this in a parking lot this weekend and it cracked me up.

I have one comment:

Define ‘thinks’.

(btw, the url does not work but this is an East Hampton Band and you can hear them on MySpace)

Got Balls?

Yes it is quite obvious that these type of people seek me out on the road and present themselves in front of me. It has become more than just a coincidence at this point.

I have a few friends that I would love to buy this bumper sticker for, and you certainly know who you are. (cough, cough, Joanne)

I particularly like the way the bumper is dented and the sticker is damaged, it makes it look that much ballsier.

Do you think this would look good on the back of my momUV?

No, this is not my truck

But whoever was driving it is surely a kindred spirit. A big thank you to Gary for taking this picture for me. If you did not read last week’s post about my experience on the Cross Bronx Expressway you cannot fully appreciate why this is so funny.

Although on it’s own it is pretty damn funny.

I particularly like the steaming illustration. My brother should love this!

Hmmm, I wonder where I can buy this bumper sticker. It would make such a lovely gift. Silly me, all you have to do is google it… if you are interested, you can buy it here.

Wait you guys, I don’t want to wake up and come outside to find this on my bumper, ok? Just want to make that clear.

My Golden Retriever is Smarter Than Your Honor Student

golden-retriever

This bumper sticker was on the car in front of me at the drive-through cash machine today. Nothing like a little sarcastic humor to lighten up another in a series of soggy days.

Danny did not find this as funny as I did. Actually, I think he thought the guy was an asshole, which he probably is. But it tickled my funny bone nonetheless.

We live in a community that is no stranger to offspring bragging. The honor student bumper stickers are the evolution of the baby on board signs. Those used to really drive me nuts. Ok, so you have a baby in your car! Does that mean if you didn’t it would be alright to rear-end you? 

I used to joke that I had the only two average kids in this district. The rest were either accelerated or remediated. 

A note to those of you who feel compelled to put bumper stickers on your car announcing your kids’ brilliance. Other than their grandparents, I am pretty sure no one else cares.

To the guy with the golden retriever, your bumper sticker is hysterical, my lab is probably smarter than your dog and truthfully, having that on your car will make most people think you are an asshole. Funny, but an asshole.

Do You Have Barbie Envy?

barbiethatbitch

Why do I find myself insanely jealous of whoever made this bumper sticker? I mean really, is that normal behavior?

I saw this in a parking lot and almost got hit by a car trying to take the picture. (that would be hard to explain: Well you see, officer, there was this bumper sticker that I HAD to get a shot of so I stopped while I was walking through the parking lot and did not realize that a car was coming and the rest is history. “That’s fine, really don’t worry”. And then to his partner, “call for a psych consult”)

For a change, I digress. So let’s talk Barbie for a minute. First, and foremost, we hate her because she is insanely skinny and never seems to be going to action figure Weight Watchers meetings. Nor does she age come to think of it.

Second, she has Ken and even though he does not have a penis (nor does she have nipples for that matter) they do seem to be a lovely couple and their relationship has been going on for… wait, let me Google this. Wow 43 years? But wait again, in my search there were a few references to a split. You can read about it on Bloggingscious (what kind of name is that and how do you pronounce it, is that like blogging delicious, hmmmm not working for me) and Man Behind the Doll (now there is a name to love). Whatever, it seems the breakup is way old news anyway. Give or take a few years these two have been together for a long time.

Third, she has the dream house for G-d sake. And the dream car. And all those tiny little shoes that little kids are forever getting stuck up their noses (Jana, did you do this or was that someone else?)

But, I worry about poor Barbie these days. Did she overextend herself with the mortgage on the Malibu beach house? Click that last link to find out more possible financial disasters for our dear old friend Barbie. Perhaps we should not worry, after all Poor is the New Rich! Once again, the old girl is always in fashion.

Wait, did she have a last name?

Oh yes she does! Dear Barbie has a Wikipedia page and her full name would be Barbara “Barbie” Millicent Roberts born March 9, 1959. OMG we are the same friggin’ age (yes I am that old, I just don’t act all that mature). Just in case you need to see the family tree you can see it here.

I know what you are all thinking right about now, ” what if she parked somewhere else today, what would she have written about?” 

Call it fate, or emerging insanity. Me? Just thrilled to have gained all that Barbie knowledge.

Still, she probably is a bitch.
