Sadly, war is sometimes the answer. I authorize the government to conduct it in my name.

I get that this is a subtle, nuanced way of interpreting the ever-present, "Support Our Troops." I wish only that they had an equally apathetic and subtle sticker that protested war, however meekly.

padraigin: I once saw a Prius with a bumper sticker that said "I Hate The Earth". I liked that.

Heh—I once saw a Hummer with a bumper sticker that said, I'm Doing My Part For The Environment!

I had a feeling that one wasn't put on by the owner.

Somebody or other sells 'I'm Contributing to Global Climate Change--Ask Me How' stickers that are at least partially intended to be put on gas-hog vehicles guerrilla-style.

One of my great disappointments is that if you climb Mount Washington without a car, you don't get a sticker.

You should be able to get something. A friend of mine has "The Driver of this Car Ran Mount Washington."

20 of these were the best $10 I ever spent.

When I go out for my daily walk in my neighbourhood, and my neighbours have parked their cars across the sidewalk instead of properly in their driveway, I'm always tempted to bring along some post it notes with "Sidewalks are for walking, not parking" written on them. But everyone would know who did it, so I don't.

I remember when I was a teenager, one of the older kids in my friends' neighborhood drove his car through someone's living-room window. The local paper ran a photo. Barely visible in the photo, on the rear bumper sticking out of the bay window, was a sticker that said:

SHIT HAPPENS

You're going to like these guys then. Their most most visible action has been the donkey sticker, which they encourage people to download, print out and stick on cars parked in an obstructing manner. The text says "I'm an ass - I park wherever I like".

wtf is up with the weird zooming effect?

I'm guessing it's some lame attempt at DRM. To keep you from printing one of them out and scotch-taping it to your car.

I saw one the other day that said "I'd Rather Be" I don't know if the rest of it was missing or it was supposed to be that way, but it struck me as nicely Zen.

This is my only vehicle.

Please bear in mind that some of us are physically incapable of parking correctly, despite the best intentions. I have never had a passenger who has not commented on my terrible, laughable parking skills.
