Frangipanis on cars? What do we say to that?

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?

It is incumbent on all proper Australians to poke fun at D***heads. And people with those Look At Moi stickers are making it easy by labelling themselves. They clearly want to be schwartzeneggered (adding new children).

So creeping around a car park and sticking on violent or offensive imagery targeting kids is funny?

Might be funny to you, probably not to the family who own the car.

Only because, people who are so self-absorbed as to think people behind them care about the composition of their family; by definition take themselves too seriously to laugh at themselves.

er, yes. And your point is?

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

I saw a girl driving a car with a sticker “No Fat Blokes”

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.

I don’t agree with damaging anyones car, but i have seen the “no fat chicks” sticker on a holden which also happened to be dirty – under no fat chicks someone had written in the dirt ” no chicks at all buddy”

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.

Not too long ago I saw one car carrying a “my family” on the left side of the rear window, and a large battle tank firing at them on the right. Ultraviolence is always funny.

Indeed. Both of these (and more) can be found at http://www.creepyunkle.com.au/category/7
Haven’t seen one in person yet though. I’m curious just how much they would block visibility out the back…

I saw the Godzilla one on the back of a car at Bunnings a while back. Creepy Uncle does some good stuff, if the stickers were a bit cheaper I’d get a handful and go have some fun, adding extra children or mistresses.

I find that almost all bumper stickers are s***e.

And I can’t find the crime against apostrophes – has it been corrected?

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

And they say Canberra has no community spirit.

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”.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Damn right. I’ve been a trendsetting misanthrope for ages.

Saw a carpenter’s ute the the other day with a “My Family” man with a power drill in the back window – thought that was worth a chuckle.

Was amused th see a 4 WD in Kambah the other day with a sticker on his back window reading

“I don’t give a flying f*@ck about you and your stupid stick figure family”

The amusing thing was the guy had personalised plates. Apparently he thought it OK to spend hundreds of dollars advertising the fact that his initials were ‘MM’, but he found someone else’s stick figure family objectionable.

Regarding Frangipani & My Family stickers, it’s very much a case of bogan see bogan do.

Call the AFP, this is serious.

I also believe there are serious penalties involved for using the Australian Coat of Arms without authorisation.

I can only presume that Prime Minister & Cabinet is setting up a taskforce right this very second to deal with these naughty people.

Johnboy’s misuse of an apostrophe is a far bigger crime.

SnapperJack said :

This is a bit old and stale. It refers to the anti-domestic violence ads initiated by the Howard government in 2003. And frangipani stickers? They are also very Noughties and passe as well. I also believe there are serious penalties involved for using the Australian Coat of Arms without authorisation.

*yawn* I don’t think you’re meant to take it that seriously.
