Yesterday, for instance, when I was driving home from my paying job, I had the singular good fortune to follow, closely ( I’m nearsighted, too, so watch out) and for some time, a late-model Chevy Metro. You know the car: slightly larger and slightly less ugly than a Yugo. Great gas mileage.
This particular Metro was covered with bumper stickers of the “progressive” variety. And I mean it when I say covered. Three tiers of wonderfully hippie, feminist and [deleted due to pending hate crimes bill] bumper stickers. Ah, the glories of the Sixties were not lost on my commuter friend!
I will list the bumper stickers here, from left to right, top to bottom. Get the mental pictures ready, as some of these stickers are often seen First row:
This one was just the equal sign, without the red line– this was the closest image I could find.
This was followed by a bumper sticker for a local Democrat candidate (sorry, no image).
The second row middle was one of these rainbow flag designs, but instead of just this flag, it was a Jesus fish with the rainbow inside it. (Insert involuntary shudder here).
This was followed by a sticker that proclaimed “Priestly Vocations Come in Both Sexes/ Ordain Women” (sorry, no image)
The third row began with the gem “Love Makes Families: Support Gay Adoption” (again, no image). Then:
Coexist, man. Tolerance rules! No hate!
Finally, the bottom right corner of the vehicle was emblazoned with simple, one word sticker:
I asked Him to have mercy on us both.
Now for the quiz. I know I shouldn’t have, but I just had to pass the Metro and peek at the driver. First person to guess approximate age and gender gets valueless prize.
