Bumper sticker spotted at The Learning Store (an educational materials supplier):

"If Sallie Mae asks,
You never saw me."

Interestingly, student loans are the only debt NOT discharged in a bankruptcy. Keep that in mind as you send your college age kids off to school!

Also spotted, at my grocery store last weekend:

"Republicans for Voldemort"

Seen any funny / ironic / interesting bumper stickers lately?

Seen last night coming home from the CSA:
"Make the Scary Republican Go Away"

See a couple of years ago:
"Death Before Decaf"

On my vehicle:
"Reuse Before Recycle"

"God grant me the courage to sell my car" (Xtracycle)

"Laziness may appear easy but in fact, it is very difficult to pull off"

The only bumper sticker I've ever had on my car: "Eve was Framed".

I loved that bumper sticker. Alas, after about 5 years on my car it wore off.

As I get older and care less what others think of me, I put more bumper stickers on the vehicle and our bikes. (See bike ones here.) My sweetie has just as many on his bike - different stickers though.

I read that student loans can't be discharged because a small group of medical students started declaring bankruptcy just as they were about to become doctors. They got a "free' education.

Favorite bumper stickers so far "Terra-ist", "The more people I get to know, the more I love my dog".

Just recently saw this one:

"Mark it 8, Dude." - Definitely an insider reference.

Perhaps the best bumper sticker I've ever seen in all my life was on a totally beaten up TransAm that had primer coat all over it and was stuffed full of all kinds of junk. The bumper sticker read: "Come the rapture, can I have your car?"

My husband's bumper sticker says: "No Farms, No Beer."

Okay, perhaps this is inappropriate but so a propos. I saw a completely black, brand new Cadillac with completely black tinted windows (this was a few years back), with a completely black bumper stick on the rear bumper that said in white letters: F*** Off! I'm not kidding! And I remember thinking, "Well, at least that guy is up front about it..."

I had a bumper sticker that said "dirt-worshipping, tree-hugging hippie." I loved it. Now all of our bumper stickers are political (Darfur, Obama, WWF, etc.).

Husband hates bumper stickers, but I have two: "Women Marines. Fewer. Prouder" and "Pirate Girl".

Some insurance company just send junk mail with a bumper sticker saying "Don't Hit Me: I'm not sure how much coverage I have". :)

Early in my life in Idaho (I spent my first 30 years in northern Wisconsin), I particularly enjoyed a bumper sticker I spotted down in Pocatello: "Born-again Native"

Later on, after a few years in this conservative state, I found I could relate to a t-shirt I saw: "Welcome to Idaho - please set your clock back 50 years"
