ON MY CAR — OR YOURS

After I had posted this set of ruminations about certain kinds of prejudice, a posting which used Jimmy Rushing as a noble example, the Esteemed Mal Sharpe wrote in.  I’m always glad to encounter Mal — he has original ideas!  This time, he suggested a bumper sticker he would like to display:

HONK IF YOU MISS JIMMY RUSHING

I feel it is a wonderful idea, mixing celebration and regret.

I was sufficiently moved to spend half an hour on a site that lets you design your own bumper sticker in quest of this idea, but calmed down when I saw what my impulse might cost.  I imagined having a boxful of stickers and pressing them on people I thought might share the same impulse.  Would I ever see one on someone’s car?

But Mal’s idea wouldn’t stay quiet, so I came up with other possibilities, of course reflecting my personal leanings.  See if any of them appeal to you, or perhaps you have ones you like better.

“YEAH, MAN!”

I also think my closing line would do well . . .

May your happiness increase!

  1. How bout “ba boo de bet dee bote de bop Oh Yeaaah!” or some variation… All fine ideas especially the closing line!

  2. HAVE YOU SCATTED TODAY? Or . . .

    IF I DIDN’T CARE, WOULD I FEEL THIS WAY?

  3. I like ‘em all! (A while ago, my license plates read, 8 DOWAHS — and it was such FUN when other drivers got it!) :-)

  4. That plate is a very intricate joke indeed! And it DON’T MEAN a thing unless some fundamental conditions are met.

  5. Got any suggestions? Operators are standing by . . .
