my family stickers

I took this on Saturday afternoon in Fyshwick as it struck me as a true “images of Canberra” photo.

I am torn between intense loathing of those stickers, and gratitude that the Frangipani madness has stopped. What the hell is wrong with people?

These stickers are a lot like tattoos. They were cool and interesting until the bogan masses discovered them.

The weirdest My Family sticker i’ve seen on a car would have to be two adults (mum and dad i assumed), and a baby with wings and a halo… not sure if it meant the baby was a ‘little angel’, or it had gone to heaven :( …pretty morbid if it was the latter.

Struggling to believe that someone got their Toorak tractor/child killer dirty.

Aerosol bulldust, surely? Or has the GDE already deteriorated to this degree?

Not sure about the GDE, but I think they were ‘resurfacing’ the Tugg-bound side of the parkway today (near Weston turnoff). So get ready for some gravelly off road action on the way home if you live down south!

Burglar: “Hmm a family with a few kids, a reasonably nice car, probably got ipads, ipods, iphones, PS3 etc at home. Might follow and see where they live…”

Takes the time to ensure folk can see his Sadipani family. But doesn’t bother to think of their safety by ensuring he can see out his rear windscreen. Speaks volumns.

That’s a top pic, Reprobate

:-)

I don’t get the hate for these little guys – they’re a little bit of personality on otherwise dull, conformist boxes. Are they really so offensive you have to froth at the mouth about them? Wish I’d thought of the idea of making them myself!

Unlike those wretched frangipani stickers, Eureka flag or “Australia – love it or LEAVE” bumper threat that immediately mark the owner as an airhead teenager, irredeemable bogan or mindless thug, the “family” stickers cover all the demographics.

My favourite so far is a tossup between the little Hyundai with just a teenage girl and a horse on it, and the low-down-on-it’s-springs Tarago with Mum, Dad, 6 kids and a couple of dogs and a cat. Had I the spare money and time I’d love to sneak into where the local high school parks their bus and put 16 teenagers and a driver right across the rear window. That’s just me though.

I’ve watched as these family stickers have slowly creeped down into the ACT- I first saw them on the Gold Coast this time last year, and they’ve slowly spread south down the east coast, like a vehicular cane toad or somesuch.

I like the My Family stickers. They have personality and convey an upbeat image of the occupants inside and their interests. Much better than those other stupid car sticker crazes of years gone by, namely the frangipani stickers during the noughties and the Bad Boy Club stickers of the ’90s.

Of course I am not going to bring up that that is the only area clean on the car, as the person probably just purchased the stickers and did not want to stick them to mud, but here is a good set of stickers for the car;

I reckon they have more character and appeal, specially for the every day Canberran.

No. No they weren’t.
