I forget the kind of car it was on, but it was a white bumper sticker with a cartoon drawing of an ambulance and the following text, in a handwriting-ish font:

My son saved a life today
. . . what did yours do?

Boggling over the awfulness was at least a nice distraction for the rest of the walk from my parking lot (I was annoyed at myself for leaving my purse at the grocery store and losing a half-hour I couldn't afford as a result).

Right, back to legal research.

"Mine failed to annoy random strangers without even being present." ;)

What a smug asshole. Pride in your family doesn't have to mean putting others down.

....oooooh! the bumpersticker means the kid is a medical professional? not what i thought at all. my first thought was way more morbid.

It looked cheery to me not "my son was a postmortem organ donor," if that's what you mean. Also that's a one-time deal, you know?

yeah, i couldn't figure out why they'd give you a bumpersticker.

If you think that's bad, their car 25 years ago had a bumper sticker reading "My son tinkled in the potty today... what did yours do?"

"I lived vicariously through my child today...did you?"

Um.

Well, I suppose it's better than "My kid can beat up your honor student". Probably.

Um.

My son built a gun out of Legos. So take THAT, bumpersticker!

That's very special, and by "special" I mean "terrible."

Of course, there are very few bumper stickers I like. Even the ones that aren't annoying the first time become so if you see them frequently. Although I am tempted to use one of these.

Using bumper stickers to express your views is like using crayons to write your thesis.

Someday that person is going to get into a fender-bender with the parent of a Navy SEAL and it's not going to be pretty.
