No, I'm not going to list them because if somebody thinks they're funny I'd explode

If I could find a good U2 one I'd put it on.
I'm the same way. My first car I had a U2 sticker, a Texas A&M (my university) sticker and a political sticker, but since then I have sworn off all stickers due to seeing some pretty awful things done to cars over expressing a political view, fave team etc. I've had friends who's car were vandalized with hateful remarks due to the fact that she had a school sticker on her car and she was staying the weekend in a rivals town. I also had a friend's tires slashed and the word "traitor" scratched in the side door because he had a bumper sticker speaking out against Bush.

Maybe I should have a sticker that reads "As long as their are idiots in this world, this will be the only sticker I own."

Of course I'm sure someone will think I'm talking about them and they'll bash in my windows.

How awful! Why do people have to be that way? It's sad, but it happens.


When I was a kid there was some kind of rivalry between the radio stations- the hippy types of the AOR rock station, the soul brothers of the R & B station and the rednecks of the country station. They started out by pulling off stickers of each other's station and replacing them with theirs. Then it grew into vandalism.

I've also heard of people doing crap to cars over the little boy peeing stickers. If people have one peeing on somebody's favorite ball team or NASCAR driver, especially if they had bumper stickers promoting their rival, they'd trash the vehicle!

I had the opposite happen once on my old Datsun that had Grateful Dead and political stickers all over it. Mostly Dead though.

one day I noticed a small sticker *I* had not put on it had appeared on the back under the rear windshield wiper motor... the Grateful Dead smiling skeleton with a crown of roses, and text reading "We Are Everywhere"...

made my day!

Got "pulled over" by a cop once who wanted to know what the 26+6=1 meant. =P

other than that have not had anything evil wrought against my various vehicles over the content of the stickers....

Oops. Forgot the American flag on the truck. One of the older stickers on it actually.

When I met hub his big old Safari wagon had a sticker on the back window that said "We Need National Parks" it was parked in town one day and someone wrote on underneath that "bullshit".

The car I have now doesn't have any bumper stickers. It did come with a sun visor on the back window that makes it difficult to see properly when reversing. We trimmed the visor down recently and now you can see a sticker on the back window that says "Dealers You Can Trust" It has to go.
