Sticker bumpies


    “Walt, you have any grenades left? Throw me one.”

    This humorous bumper decal along with several other expressive license plate frames were noted while I was waiting in the lengthy traffic lines entering the city of Malibu during the recent water line break. With the arrival of plastic automobile bumpers articulate license plate frames replaced more destructive sticky bumper stickers (try that three times). Other humorous frames I noted were:

    Some people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them.

    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    Wanted: Meaningful overnight relationship.

    You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

    Beer: It’s not just for breakfast anymore.

    Make welfare checks as hard to get as a Malibu building permit.

    Well, maybe that last one wasn’t so amusing.
