Driving home the other day, I saw someone with this license plate:
and it got me thinking: why did that person chose that specific license plate to pay extra for? I mean I am down with Tibet and hate Red China and all, but why this one, single statement? Tibet is one of those obligatory liberal causes; much like the 2nd amendment or questioning the President's birthplace is for conservatives.
But there are so MANY causes and candidates and just plain cute stuff to choose from that I always wonder how someone ends up choosing:
That was one that haunted my childhood. WHY, of all the choices out there would you pick that ONE?
'Cause, see, if I put ONE bumper sticker on my car, it would end up looking like this one:
I have, I admit, TAPED a bumper sticker to my back window – during elections and such. But I could never choose one particular license plate or personalized license plate. Besides, we drive cars until they die, so a bumper stick is a major commitment. Of course, making a choice always puts me on the horns of a dilemma. What if I pick wrong? What if the RIGHT choice was the next one? What if someone else doesn't like my choice? Incidentally, traveling with me is hell.
So the question is: Do YOU have a bumper sticker (or more than one), personalized license or special plate? What made you choose that ONE? Did it give you agita? Or am I just weird?
