Get your feet wet

When a bumper sticker isn’t enough

So I was driving around today and happened to stop at a red light behind this fella, at the corner of Ballard and Forehead/Steering Wheel.

That’s one big-ass truck, but the devil is always is in the details, n’est pas?

Now it’s all perfectly well and good to have your little “personal political convictions,” but I think we can all agree on one thing: this dude is fuckin’ COMMITTED! I mean, that’s years of of announcing his staunch Nobama-tude every time he gets behind the wheel. It’s almost a personal “fuck you” to every driver who could only commit to a politics-related MAGNET, fer chrissakes.

(Also? NOBAMA’s got some serious sack driving this mother around Ballard. Might as well have the plate that reads IEATKITTENS. . .)

(And yeah, I popped this on Facebook and my friend Jillian’s Dad was all, “Sure, it’s crazy, but there were a few years there I might’ve gone in for a nice NOBUSH plate.” And I’m all, “Well first of all, Mike, while I’m down with that in theory, there’s that whole pronouncement you might inadvertently be making about your fondness for the Brazilian wax.” And second, those eight years weren’t exactly a paragon of civil liberties, and you probably would’ve instantly ended up on some International Terrorist Watch List, and can you imagine being pulled aside every time you went to the airport and having to be all, “Officers, can’t a sixtyish beekeeper just use his bumper to express his appreciation for a well-waxed lady??!”)

    Awww, yeah! I’m on a boat — she’s back!

    Not a political chick at all, but I do wonder if anyone else wanted that personalized plate and then found out it was taken.

    Maybe Carl Carlton wanted NOBAMA as a short hand way of saying “She’s a bad mamma jamma.”

    NO = Bad

    BAMA = mamma jamma (smushed together since you’re only allowed six or seven characters with the first B sort of echoing the no as in bad and then the AMA equaling the mamma jamma part.)

    Alright it’s a stretch, but maybe Carl Carlton is no good at shortening these things. Maybe he also wanted to pay homage to his own name and chose CACA for his plate but his wife said absolutely not.

    I know, this is lame with a capital L. I’m just happy to see you again.

      YOU, lame? Try letting your blog lapse for two months — that’ll get your Blogher ads yanked and a fat-ass L on your forehead FOR SURE. . .

      Thanks, CG, glad to be back!

    Not only is this guy committed, but he also obviously has money to burn. Those personalized plates don’t come cheap, and he’ll have to change it up in a couple of years (or 6) when Mr. Obama completes his term.

    And might I ad …. it’s lovely to see you update again. šŸ™‚
