Quick zinger roundup

  • “George W. — We will be forever in his debt.” (Bumper sticker quoted on Andrew Sullivan’s site)
  • “If he was shot in the head by the front, that is good marksmanship, if he was shot in the head by the back, that is good judgement.” (from the WikiPedia entry on the outlaw and gunfighter John Wesley Hardin)
  • “like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car”

    and

    “like how you’d sound if you drank a quart of bourbon, smoked a pack of cigarettes and swallowed a pack of razor blades… Late at night. After not sleeping for three days”

    (people describing the singing voice of Tom Waits)

Saw Revenge of the Sith

Mark and I saw Revenge of the Sith, and unlike many of the reviewers I liked it quite a bit, I hadn’t seen the previous two but this one stood on it’s own quite well. Eric was supposed to meet us but had car problems.

While walking back to the car Mark and I saw this bumper sticker (which was pretty good)

And this car, which is hilarious, inspired by the Napoleon Dynamite movie evidently.

Last of the old cell pictures

I found these old pictures on the cell phone so I figure I’ll tell the story about them for prosperity.

Sometime last October Mark and I were out riding around downtown, afterwards we go to Moes’ in Ansley. After we come out (this is in probably the most left-leaning neighborhood in a very Democratic city) we see this bumper sticker,

which really stood out in terms of humor and originality. All the other bumper stickers (on around 90% of cars) were fairly juvenile and stale.

We exchanged a good chuckle and I took the picture (note reflection).

Up comes a large steroidal guy who sees me taking the picture and goes “You want to see a good bumper sticker, look at this one”. We then go to his car and he has this one.

He then mistook my saying “That’s pretty good too” (which it is) for “Elaborate on the topic. Tell me all your feelings on immigration and how your background informed your opinion; don’t omit anything. Go back generations in your family if you have to but make sure I understand your position completely.”

Which he did for the next 20 minutes or so.
