a little voice inside my head said, "don't look back; you can never look back."

Today I saw a DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT bumper sticker on a Ford Taurus.

Just saying.

In other news, if anybody is looking to get rid of a WFC membership, I know somebody who may need one....


Re: the first, that probably should not be cracking me up as much as it is.
...I may have to get one for my wheelchair now.
Saw that same bumper sticker on a Hyundai in the hospital parking garage yesterday. Cracked me up.
What does that bumper sticker mean? I can come up with two equally valid and opposite meanings.
what do you want it to mean?
If it were on my car, it would be an admonition to keep within 5 mph of the speed limit, to use your turn signals, and such. You know, in general not draw attention to your stolen vehicle. On the other hand, I could see it meaning drive the vehicle like you don't care about it.
The former is what I think every time I see one of those bumper stickers.
That is how I would drive a car I had stolen.
I think the punchline is that it was on a Ford Taurus. As in why on earth would anybody steal a Taurus.

Oh yeah, I understood that part. I've just had that question since the first time I'd seen one of those stickers. Usually a bumper sticker is clear on meaning, unless confusion is the point.
Ok. :D

*g* most people who have stolen cars do not drive them carefully.

Heh. That one's right up there with the 'Nader for prez' sticker I saw on the back of a Corvair.
Hee, vehicular personalization ever? There was a truck in my home town that had a spoiler. The spoiler looked like it came out of an erector set. It was mounted on the cab of the truck.
Because otherwise you'd have to admit you paid money for it, sure.

(sez the unproud ex-owner of the Taurus-based 1995 Windstar. The vehicle whose maintenance schedule included "every 60,000 miles: replace headgasket." In my case it was "drive it like you inherited it," though.)
Today I saw a "GAS, GRASS OR ASS - NO ONE RIDES FOR FREE" sticker.

On a Saturn.

(Dude, you couldn't have gotten yourself a Dodge Charger, or an old Mustang, or something like that?)

- yeff

don't look back.
you can NEVER look back.
I do have a banquet ticket...
