Whenever I’m riding around town, I often enjoy reading other driver’s bumper stickers. My theory is that there’s a correlation between a driver’s personality and the type of items they display on their car.
Recently, I’ve noticed a new type of bumper sticker. It used to be easy to read stickers from a slight distance, but things have changed. Riddle me this: How did the trend toward the three-letter bumper sticker originate? I know that you’ve seen them. Quite often, I don’t know what the letters represent, and I can barely read the tiny printed names of whatever beach, school or business is listed below the letters. Are these drivers all members of a of cool, secret three-letter bumper sticker club? If that’s what’s going on, then count me in. I’ll put a sticker on my car that reads “CRS.” Figure that one out. It stands for Can’t Read Your Sticker! I know, you’re only allowed three words, one for each letter. I just threw “your” in there to shake things up—blame it on the rebel in me.
If you think that this is a fluff topic, rest assured bumper sticker discussions can get deep. Check out this video:
