my family stickers

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

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

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

Um a Ford 4WD does not qualify as a Toorak Tractor! Has to be a Rangerover …

I actually don’t mind those stickers. They give a bit of self expression potential which some people will take advantage of. The funniest/saddest one was of a woman with 16 cats.

Is it not possible that she was taking the piss?

Along those lines, the funniest one I’ve seen has just a man and a woman, standing next to a big pile of cash. I thought that was pretty clever.

I’m calling BS on this. See link:

I did have a laugh at one of the yuppies at work who is very career oriented. Someone brave put just a single bloke on his car. He thought it was apt, so he left it there.

I’ll also admit to hating the frangipanis and was considering producing an anti-frangipani sticker but was beaten to it..

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

Lolz.

Bogans were covered in tattoos long before all the stupid m^thf%cking hipsters started sporting them … and even longer than all those tepid public servants who think that they’re ‘rebellious’ because they have one (this really is the contemporary equivalent of those vile novelty ties that were so ubiquitous back in the day).

+1

THe worst ones are the fricking tribal tattoos. If you are not from a tribal background or getting it as a heritage thing, then don’t get it.

I have more than a few tattoos, and every one of them means something or represents something or some point in my life, whether it be love, loss, pain or joy. I have a feeling my next one may get me fired…

Oh come on “Shirty-bear” a Ford Territory isnt even a 4WD (it comes as AWD or RWD) so cannot possibly be referred to as a “Toorak Tractor”, at best its a Red Hill Runabout and would equate more with a station wagon which if there are 6 in that family as indicated by the number of stickers on the back would be what’s required to transport that many people around with any comfort

that said I note the crudely drawn frangipani under the offending stickers which makes it doubly abhorrent, I think a packet of condoms placed under the windscreen wiper might be a better option

I took a photo of a sticker on a car that said “This car was built with spanners not chopsticks” .. wasn’t sure what to make of that.

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…”

This is a valid point. I have seen a few with single mums and a number of young children, one of these is regularly parked in a driveway of a house down the road from me and it doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to put 2 and 2 together…’Aaah, single mum, no man in the house….I think I’ll watch her’.

You are basically advertising to anyone what your family demographic consists of. It’s stupid!

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.

Still doesn’t beat my “economists do it with models” rear window sticker.

Great! My daughter put some on our car a couple of weeks ago. I thought they are a bit naff, but harmless.

But now I know it irritates the hipsters I’m all for it!

The hipsters put the stickers on their cars fixed-gear bikes ironically.

Add a sticker of Calvin peeing on them for maximum mash-up winnage!
