I have, here, recorded a passel of peculiar bumper stickers. I have included explanations for the bumper stickers with obtuse meanings; some, I could not figure out for myself. I would appreciate conjectures from my readers on the meanings of these more enigmatic bumper stickers.
I saw an old car on the I-195 exit onto UMBC with a total of eight bumper stickers, six saying:
- Go Climb a Rock: Yosemite
- Underarmour: Run
- MS Marshall Street Disk Golf [Marshall Street Disk Golf is a supplier of disc golf equipment in Leicester, Massachusetts.]
- Disk Golfer on Board
- Rock me sexy Jesus [This is the name of a musical number in Hamlet 2.]
- Nader-Gonzales '08
The other two bumper stickers depicted:
- A flower
- A giant robot destroying a city
I would like to be friends with the driver of this car, if I'm not expected to be excellent at disc golf.
Driving north on I-795, to the Red Robin in Owings Mills, to hang out with Greg:
- Gwapa Inside [It looked like an Intel Inside sticker. "Gwapa" is Filipino for good-looking, declined in the feminine.]
In San Antonio, Texas, near the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center:
- In Guad we trust [This is a reference to Our Lady of Guadalupe.]
I forget where I saw all of the remaining bumper stickers.
A bumper sticker:
- I heart golfing and biking [The heart was faded out.]
I saw a vanity plate:
- GTD RNK [I like the Getting Things Done methodology; it is unlikely that this has anything to do with this vanity plate.]
One card had a fake license plate mounted above a real license plate. The fake license plate:
- A map of Africa, on a background of a green, yellow, and red tricolor of horizontal stripes.
The real license plate:
- Romans 8
I imagine that the driver of this car is an Afro-centric Presbyterian. I would like to be friends with this person.
A bumper sticker:
- An icon of a fist with lightning bolts, next to the words, "BEW for Obama/Biden"
