What is the deal with the family stickers on the cars?


We all know Johnson County is all about families and schools and while I assume the phenomenon isn't just in Johnson County don't you think those stickers on the back of every one's cars are just a bit TOO cute? Where does this stuff start? Somebody is making a fortune off this stuff and THAT makes me pretty jealous.

You know I'm following all these JoCo folks around town in their minivans and SUVs and they are proudly displaying their family configuration or their procreation prowess off on the back of their vehicle.

It made me start to think. What if you had conjoined twins? Could you get a sticker that had a couple little kids stuck together? I wonder if the polygamists in Utah have them with a dad and like 7 moms and a whole brood of kiddos? Or maybe if a dad has a mistress he could have a himself, his wife with the kids and then a hot trophy looking girl with big boobs for the mistress on there? I don't know that one might be a stretch. Then on the morbid side (okay anony's fire up the comments 3,2 1...now telling me I'm a sicko) if someone in the family dies do you have to go out there with a razor blade and scratch them off or do they just sell a "RIP" to put over that caricature? Or maybe if there is a divorce you could get a big red "X" to put over them.

Some of them are personalized with what people like to do as hobbies. Like it shows little Billy with a soccer ball and little Suzy with a jump rope or something like that. So if dad is an alcoholic can they make one with a bottle of cheap vodka in his hand? Could you get the mom sticker pushing a vacuum cleaner? Maybe mom is a whore so maybe they could have her laying down with her legs up in the air?? I know, I know but just thinking out loud. How about the little kid with a nintendo DS in one hand an bag of doritos in the other? That might be a little closer to reality, no?

Some of what I've seen has truly been somewhat interesting. Big families like with 4 or 5 kids. You know that always gets me thinking.....man do these people know about birth control and how much money do they make to support all those kids in Johnson County? Families with tons of pets....like 2 dogs and 2 cats. I saw that one today. Even the gay people in joco are into it. I saw one a little while back with 2 women and 2 little boys. I haven't seen any yet with 2 guys....... I'll have to keep a closer watch I'm sure that one is out there. What I haven't seen yet is just a one person sticker.....like a single dude or chick.....that would be funny. A guy and his dog. Why don't we see that?

Got any good ideas about ones I might have missed? If you have this on your car why? I'd love to hear about it. Also, how could it be that every kid in sojoco is an honor student? From the bumper stickers I've seen for years now apparently is true. I mean if they have the sticker it must be true, right?

I hate the stickers that have each person's name under it. Why would anyone want to give their kids' names to strangers?

so true. I'm seeing lots of those round stickers like LIB for Liberty or STM for St. Michaels...has anyone else seen those?

Thanks for commenting Michelle.
