T-Shirt & Bumper Sticker Sayings (2)

2013/11/19

A bumper sticker reflecting a parent's pride in their child's school performance, " My kid is an honors student " caused other people to put stickers on their cars to poke fun at this type of parent: " My kid beat up your honors student."

Bumper stickers and T-shirt messages are usually funny, but sometimes express a straighforward feeling such as " God bless America " or " Love the earth "
Political messages are common and often blunt such as " Obama sucks " or " Dump the Tea Party."

Some messages displayed by older people, find humor in getting old: " Too soon old, too late smart." or "It's hard to be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.", or I have the body of a God.  Unfortunately, the god is Buddha.

Some messages use dark humor: " I miss my wife...burt my aim is getting better." ( This refers to shooting his wife, but it's meant to be funny !)

Some slogans are ironic: I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize" and "Copy from one, it's Plagiarism.  Copy from many, it's research"

Because some T-shirt messages can be offensive, a lot of schools in the US ban students from wearing them.  However, bumper stickers usually can't be (or aren't) restricted.                (G.K)
