What bumper stickers are the most "Madison".

Postby universitylad » Sun Jan 28, 2007 10:03 pm

So many automobiles around Madison have lots of bumper stickers. At work, the other day we were trying to decide what bumpers stickers would be the most "Madison" to have. In the end we decided the most "Madison" of Madisonians would have two bumper stickers: "Share the Road with Bicycles" and "Feingold".

Some others to consider "Crossed out W's", "Impeach", "ProChoice Woman", "Say No to Circumcision", "Stop IZ"....

What bumpers stickers do you think would make a car the most "Madison?"


What bumper stickers does your car sport?

I currently don't have any bumper stickers (just a UW window sticker) because I think they'd be hard to peel off. Do any of you put bumper stickers onto magnets so your car can be political one day and apolitical the next?

I have a "Kerry for President" sticker, that was previously occupied by a "Clark for President" and before that a "Dean for President" sticker. I will not be taking it off until Clark announces his intentions, or I choose to support another candidate. I decided to keep the Kerry sticker on as a reminder to the stupid people who voted for Bush of how stupid they are. On the other side of my rear bumper is a cute "Feingold/Baldwin '08, as American as fresh cheese curds" sticker that I bought from the TAA.

I have noticed quite a few vehicles with partially scrapped off "Bush/Cheney" stickers lately.

On the isthmus, anything having to do with wort, unions, tibet, and the political left.

East of starkweather creek it's a guy pissing on either a ford or chevy emblem, and harley davidson.

Do I have bumper stickers? Like I need any reason for people to drive CLoser to my bumper in this city.

Not the most Madison of all bumper stickers, but maybe the funniest/ballsiest one I've seen recently. This one in the parking lot of Border's on University on a car covered in stickers:

"Nothing Fails Like Prayer"

The one that's been around the longest is "Imagine whirled peas." I remember reading it as a child on those old boxy Volvo station wagons everyone used to drive.

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that I liked:

"My other car is a pair of boots."

And I've always liked, "Kill Your Television."

I used to have a bumper sticker on my car that said, "Arm the Homeless." I took it off one day, and have kind of regretted it ever since.

I'm pretty sure Bert Zipperer may have the most bumper stickers I've ever seen, in person, on one vehicle. That's him in that old VW Van, right?

By the way, WD40 takes bumper stickers right off. It also removes State Park stickers from your windshield.

What bumper stickers are the most "Madison"?

Whichever ones are the most obnoxiously self-righteous.

Is it not as cool if you go out of your way to procure a new one?

Two other parodies of the ancient "visualize world peace" sticker are favorites of mine:

Visualize grilled cheese (which, unlike "whirled peas" looks nothing like "world peace", but still sounds right in my head)

and:

Forget world peace; visualize using your turn signals
