Default My family stickers question

It was mentioned on another forum... So I was wondering about what all those my family stickers maybe like in other countries.

So in South Africa do they have white stick figures shooting at black stick figures and burning their townships down?

Or in Rhodesia do they have black stick figures hacking up white stick figures with machetes?

Or in Iraq are there brown stick figures with bombs on their backs blowing up red, white and blue stick figures?

Just curious.

Is there going to be a BE prize this year for most incomprehensible post ever?

Some cars advertise exactly who, what and where they are, I know some people are paranoid about their details being public, but those decals plus a personalised number plate tell people all about their lives.

Not putting them on my car!

It's worse if you can comprehend it, believe me.

Is this something that is explained to one upon arrival in Australia? Like a secret handshake?

Ugh stick families ..

Up here it seems to be 'fashionable' to have a In Memoiram sticker on your car, In loving memory of blah blah blah ... makes me wonder did they get that big old new truck with the insurance pay out or what ? just seems a bit weird advertising the passing of a loved on. I saw one today in Wal-mart parking lot that was in memory of Pump Daddy complete with dates of birth and death and a nakid decal of a plumpish man with a woman on top ... freaks !

It's meant to be an amusing take on these things:


Imagine a 'Baby On Board' sticker and multiply the level of vomit-inducement manyfold ...

Then there is the anti side of things:

Maybe they can star in one of those really annoying ads that are infesting the TV schedules at the moment ...

"I am a normal bloke, I love my family, Look at my shiny life, Now look at your Godless existence, I am not a religious nutjob, But if you don't believe what I do then you WILL go to hell. My name is Dave and I'm a mormon".

There's one of those I see parked at the train station all the time. "In loving memory of Ebinee-Roze, dob-dod" all written in swirley script. Um, unless you're actually run over Ebinee-Roze with the ute (El Camino for you Americans) I'm not sure why you would dedicate your vehicle to her.

With a name like Ebinee Roze, I am not surprised she got squashed.

Was "dob-dod" her nickname?

Or Americans shooting everybody?

Or Brits with bad teeth?

Or Mexicans sneaking across the border?

Or Canadians smashing baby seals in the head?
