Accepted by Cracked Bumper Stickers

Tim Babb’s April Foolishness
Day 8

I won! I actually won one of cracked.com’s Photoshop contests. It was What 27 Popular Bumper Stickers Really Mean. My entry was this:


(I added the watermark because this entry is technically their property now)

So to me, the joke is just “don’t put too many bumper stickers on your car. It will mess up the paint.” But others in the comment section assumed I had a more political agenda. If you notice, the stickers all have a left leaning political bent. So some folks thought I was saying that liberal bumper stickers specifically will lower the resale value of your car.

It’s fine if people think that. I can’t control my joke after I’ve released it into the wild…but it got me thinking. Did the judges pick this entry based on the joke I intended to make or the joke I accidentally made by picking this random image of a car with liberal bumper stickers on it.

Then I remembered that $100 spends the same either way! WOO HOO!!!

    Congrats! Great picture, and my dad always said, people with bumper stickers had a lower IQ. (His joke because of resale value)

    Nice!!! I don’t put bumper stickers on any of my vehicles for that very reason, not that I’ve ever sold a vehicle.

    People with more bumper stickers are more likely to be road-ragey drivers:
