Bumper Stickers

I like to read bumper stickers, but I'm not a bumper sticker user. Firstly, I don't want to mar my car. Secondly, I don't think I could come up with a statement, phrase, or picture that could adequately sum up what I wanted to say to other drivers on the roads of life. Lastly, bumper stickers let people stereotype you in two seconds flat, and I hate being pushed into categories so quickly. However, I wouldn't mind going into bumper sticker production. My friend Charlene made a killing on E-bay selling bumper stickers that simply said "M X S." (This stands for Mulder times Scully, for those of us out of the X-Files loop.) Here are two variations of old favorites:

"Free Tibet" becomes:
"Force China to Free Tibet"
"Give Peace a Chance" becomes:
"Make Terrorists Give Peace a Chance"

I wonder if "Free Tibet" stickers are made in China?

Ha ha... I don't know but that is an interesting thought. Your thought process is so interesting Jamie... I wish my brain worked like yours.
