Frangipanis on cars? What do we say to that?

By johnboy - 24 March 2012 41

anti frangipani sticker

Framey spotted this well put together bumper sticker near Souther Cross Stadium this afternoon.

But when, oh when, will the Australian Government turn its attention to the My Family stickers?

Yes, but nothing is more bogan than stickers declaring the driver’s love of Jack Daniels, Bundaberg Rum etc

Oh… and let’s not forget “shoot ferals”. Very classy.

Better yet, the p-plater tradie who tried to hit on me at a roundabout with ‘Mud Slut’ on the back of his ute window.

I used to work with a guy who had a “no fat chicks” sticker that covered the whole rear window of his ute.

Misogyny is so passe …

Disliking far chicks is misogyny now?

The chicks who instruct us on misogyny tend not to be particularly trim, so you can forgive their confusion.

They must also design my phone, which auto-corrected “fat” to “far”.

Men of a certain age buy Porches in the hope that it will persuade hot young babes to overlook their thinning hair and fall into bed with them.
Women of a certain social status will pay special money for average cars with a European badge, in the hope that it will lend them a certain cachet in the Woollies carpark.
Penniless P-platers will attach cheap spoilers to their cheap cars, which would likely fall off in the unlikely event that their car could reach a speed at which they might work.
And don’t get me started on middle class suits on Harleys, ‘retro’ pushies and Hummer look-alikes.

I myself drive a Prius, so I fit into several classes of wankery, except perhaps the ‘hoping to get laid’ category.

My point is that for most of us our transport is our public face for at least part of our day, and we make our choices accordingly. In the scheme of things, a back window sticker is one of the less ridiculous vanities I see out there.

Funny that. My phone just corrected ‘small’ to ‘tall’.

Thus the wankery classes if not getting laid or seeking to…

Let me bring you up to speed, champ. Having a penis is misogyny now.

G’day from the West. A Canberra friend brought me here because she knows I love this stuff … a little bit more than I should. I used to think it was just me; so pleased to discover it’s not. Here’s some proof (www.hegemonyheights.com/bumperedition). And I can’t find the crime against apostrophes – has it been corrected?

I don’t know whether people are more tolerant now but in the early 2000s I bought a No Fat Chicks sticker at Summernats and put it on my car’s back window. Within two days someone had cut the word “chicks” off with a Stanley knife.

The following year I bought another No Fat Chicks sticker, this one a more professional one with individual letters. Within a day of applying it the letters had been scraped out leaving scratches on my window.

I know a bloke who put a sticker on his car window saying “Black eye for the queer guy” a few years ago. He had the sticker scraped off and a threatening note put under his windscreen.

Lumpy, I believe I was tailgated by the same aggressive and erratically driving P-plater in an oversized ute. He had the aforementioned ‘Mud Slut -hitting every hole’ bumper sticker on his back window.

Well, you can’t appreciate them in their entirety close up.

And they say Canberra has no community spirit.

There’s a number of activities that have sprung up in response to the vile My Family stickers. A number of businesses sell stickers you can add to them, either more kids and/or a mistress or godzilla about to fry them all. The Costco carpark is a good hunting ground.

I am pleased to note that it has indeed been corrected.
