Bumper Sticker Wisdom
The other day I passed an old truck covered in bumper stickers. The messages ranged from offensive to political to philosophical to hilarious. As a teenager, my very old Volvo had its own range of stickers. My current car only has tame oval magnets supporting kids’ camps and schools. And let’s face it, they don’t really mean a thing. Magnets don’t demand the commitment and chutzpah of a proper sticker; they pose no liability to car paint or chrome. In contrast, a bumper sticker’s adhesive threats indicate serious business. We could do well to pay more attention to the truths those boldly pasted messages hold. See examples below.
