Bumper Sticker POW-er
I don’t cover my car in stickers, but I find it amusing to read other people who choose to make their vehicles mobile billboards. First amendment rights at work; free speech at its best (or worst) depending upon how you feel about it. If anything, the car owner is certainly self-aware!
