Bumper Stickers

Yesterday I was driving behind a beautifully restored antique car. Tall and agleam with shiny black paint, the vehicle shimmied down the road on skinny, wobbly tires. Above the rumble seat, in the tiny rear window, was a bumper sticker. It read “Impeach Coolidge.”

  1. Bumper Stickers

    Yesterday I was driving behind a beautifully restored antique car—a 1927 Dodge Brothers. Tall and agleam with shiny black paint, the vehicle shimmied down the road on skinny, wobbly wooden wheels and rubber tires. Above the rumble seat, in the tiny rear window was a bumper sticker. It read “Impeach Coolidge.”
    My second car is a 1999 Ford truck—I used PaintShop and made a bumper sticker that said “Impeach Bill.” It fit perfectly under the tailgate handle. I hope the water base glue doesn’t bake into the paint.

  2. I drive using common sense, a vehicle and twenty years of experience. The rear end of my car should have a multitude of bumper stickers with advice for all those Crappy drivers on the road. Words of wisdom such as ‘I Brake for Tailgaters’ and ‘Why Yes, I Can Drive Slower.’ Another suitable bumper sticker for one of my bad driving pet peeves, ‘Please Feel Free to Signal, The Person Behind You Is Not a Mind-Reader.’ And last but not least here is a polite suggestion for the most dangerous of all bad driving behaviors, ‘Hey Einstein, Texting While Driving Does Not Exempt You From The Theory of Relativity!’ Or ‘Hey Moron! Keep Texting and Driving I would Prefer It If You Were a Dying Breed!’
