My fave?

"God spoke through a burning bush, so let's light Bush on fire and see what God says"

Laughed my ass off when I saw that.

Saw a good'un the other day: Still Pissed at Yoko.

I have a black figure eight shaped magnet with 'enough with the ribbons' in white text.

Someone needs to make one of those that reads "Support Our Magnet Manufacturers."

Except that I'm sure these things are all cranked-out by four-year-olds in China.

The question is, what's the perfect Foron bumper sticker? And would you actually put one on your car? Serious consideration in the past has been given to:

If Hype Exchange is outlawed, only outlaws will exchange hype. (chuck is responsible, I think)

I ain't Sheppy.

or my personal favorite:
My IP address was blocked by The Daily Page Forum and all I got was this lousy bumper sticker.

I think so too.

How about little yellow "Foron Board" signs we can attach to our rear windshields with suction cups? Nothing ensures you'll be rear-ended like admitting your affiliation with the DPF.

Or what about:

"I Accelerate for Trolls"

"My Other Log-in is a Pseudonym"

"Screw Flanders"

"WWSD?" (What Would Stu Do?)

"Honk If You're Pissed at Schick" (a noise pollution liability if ever there was one)

Or maybe a decal of Calvin pissing on an emoticon. I'd sport that one.

I always wanted a bumper sticker that says "Nietzsche is peachy."

Yep. It's be hard to top that little piece of found poetry.

On the back of a car, I recently saw one of those silver-colored fish things that, when closely examined, said "trout" across the middle.

I assume that one's no longer extant, yes? I can only find reference to it, while the original comment appears to be gone. Me and Baudrillard are going to go talk this one out.
