Defacing up

Atomic Trousers lists the ten "most obnoxious" bumper stickers seen in leftish Madison, Wisconsin. I'll single out one that also perturbs me:

"Live Simply So That Others May Simply Live" — The airheads with this little chestnut on their bumpers are confusing simple wordplay with incredible profundity. This bumper sticker sounds really deep until you realize that a.) it doesn't mean a damn thing and b.) the dork in your office who asks if you’re workin' hard or hardly workin' is making an equally clever play on words.

Since you asked: I have no bumper stickers, not even the AAA Plus oval they send me every year.

"Impeach Bush-Cheney" seen in Denver. For what? Perjury? Oh wait....

Disclosure: I have a couple NASCAR stickers on my pickup. I guess we all know what demographic I'm in.

I've just got one, but it's as valid now as it was when I put it there several years ago. "Hate is not a family value."

That one I kinda like, actually.

I made one some years back, when it was true: Proud parents of an honor student at home.

During the streaker phase, I had one that stated "Not all streakers are created equal." There was a local person that sometimes contributed items to Paul Harvey's radio show. He announced that "...in this city, on this street, this bumper sticker was spotted." It just had to be the one on my truck.
