Bumper To Bumper

I've done a lot of running around this week and while stuck in the nightmare that is NJ traffic I found some car art to share with you.



I think this means they walk to the mailbox and only use the drive-thru once a day


There really is a tiger in his tank


I decided not to cut him off


Ya gotta love how clever Republicans think they are


Well there's at least one believer


Yes they do


We could be friends


Another friend


A Libertarian who wants stricter cell phone laws?


What?

They can't afford shoes, spent all their money on giant SUV


They guy next to me tailgated this truck for miles, I kept waiting for it to back up - so disappointed


That is one ugly kid


It is good to be self-aware

See ya on the Parkway

I would take you to task for taking photos while driving, except for two things...

1. I have also done it.

2. You have described NJ traffic so well that I suspect you were at a dead stop each time you snapped a picture.

Linda Reeder said...

At least the traffic jams allowed for some good reading.
Can anyone interpret the Mosquito truck sticker????

Kitty said...

You know your (sic) in NJ when ... there is a sticker about mosquito trucks. That one's a winner, man.

Linda said...

I didn't get the mosquito one either but enjoyed the others. At least it gave you something to do while you sat in traffic.

Mrs. D said...

Okay, the mosquito truck one totally makes sense. In my town, during the summer, every evening the "mosquito truck" cruises around slowly spraying deadly (only to mosquitoes *wink, wink*) toxins all throughout the town out of a giant spraying device. It's done so we die from cancer and not West Nile or Malaria. And if you are neurotic like me, when the mosquito truck in near you (and it ALWAYS catches me when I am on a walk!!) I fear the brain damage that is sure to come. LOL.

In conclusion, I thought the mosquito truck sticker was LOLtastic ;-)

I loved these photos of auto-artica Dianne. I hope no one caught you shooting thier cars...what with the paranoia and all.

But the one about following the mosquito truck on the bike…..my brain is beginning to leak out of my ears and pool in my lap…..WTF?

Rob Inukshuk said...

This is a brilliant post and your comments are too funny. Who knew you could learn so much about folks from reading rear ends?

Matt-Man said...

I dig bumper stickers, always have. I never put them on our car, but I find some to be quite amusing. Thanks for the On-the-Go Show. Cheers Di!!

The mosquito truck was actually a mosquito Jeep in Key West. It would blast its toxins into the evening air and yes, knowing no better, we kids used to run behind it so we would be covered in the spray so as not to get bitten. Who knew?
How on earth I have made it 70 years is incredible. At least now I know I have an excuse for my mental failings.

I followed the mosquito truck.

In NH every Friday night a pickup truck spraying a fogger to kill mosquito's would cruise the campgrounds. I think some cities did the same thing.

Dianne said...

travis - I do a lot of drive by shooting but not while moving
if I can't capture a shot while stuck or at a light I try to go back or just forget it

linda - patti and mrs d and micky t came to our rescue
who knew!

kitty - YOUR so right ;)

linda - it's amazing what you can see when you really look around

mrs d - wow!! I never knew about that
we had the spraying for awhile in NY during the Nile crisis but only late late at night and only in the parks and along the highway

scott - I am very covert
if I was in LA I could totally be TMZ - ugh
our fellow bloggers have answered the mosquito sticker so pull your brains back in - they're too good to waste

rob - rear ends do tell a lot ;)

matt-man - I never put them on either - I have too many things to say and can't choose just one
all I have is the license plate that says I brake for animals

patti - we were sturdier stock than the kids today
toxins just made us stronger ;)

micky - you always live dangerously!! ;)

fermicat said...

Thanks for sharing. I needed a good laugh. Love the local color on this crazy collection.

We had mosquito trucks in NC when I was a kid. Hmmm maybe that's my problem!
<><

Frank Baron said...

Clever of you to find a way to amuse yourself (and later, us) while enduring highway heck. Thanks. :)

Daryl said...

"Maybe thats why YOUR not right"? The person who owns this car/sticker is as stupid as the person who made the sticker ...

LOVE this post ... its brilliant like you are ... xoxo

Jay said...

Dang it! Mrs D beat me to the mosquito truck explanation. And here I was going to look all smart and shit. :(

Bumper stickers are cool. Like Matt, I won't allow them on MY car. But I love them on other people's car.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

LOL I have actually thought about doing a post like this...ya beat me to it

Akelamalu said...

You don't see many stickers on car bumpers over here. Those are fascinating!

Patti said...

This is a fun post, Dianne. I needed a smile this afternoon. Rough week, you know? Can't keep up.

Lisa (Mountain Photog) said...

Those were great, Dianne! And your comments on each photo were even better. Especially the one about the ugly kid. LOLOLOL!

Ron said...

OMG...I ADORE YOU WOMAN!!!!

This was such a faaabulous post to read after my long-ass day in retail!

LOVED them all, but.....

"They guy next to me tailgated this truck for miles, I kept waiting for it to back up - so disappointed."

CRACKED ME UP!!!!!

Bwhahahahahahahahahaha!

Thanks for the great laugh, Dianne!

X ya!

Ivanhoe said...

Good ones, Di! I had to read the one about mosquito truck a few times and still did not get it. And then I saw your: What? Yup, exactly my thought :)
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!

Hilary said...

These were fun. You have a lot of pet rescue folks.. that's good. As for the mosquito truck, evidently it plays havoc with you're grammar skilla. ;)

Krista said...

What a fun post! My fave is the last one! :O)

maryt/theteach said...

Thanks for the laughs, Dianne! :)

Linda said...

Ah, memories of driving through Jersey! Though I must say I like it a lot more when you're doing the driving and we get to see things from your point of view!
