Support Our Ribbons

Ah, meta humor

Seriously, someone help me to understand what compels people to put ribbons, bumper stickers, etc. on their vehicles. I get the whole “raising awareness” thing, e.g., breast cancer, but the whole thing just seems so clubbish.

Here in Virginia, the number of vehicles sporting Virginia Tech paraphernalia has skyrocketed since the massacre in April. I’m sure that some people are genuinely expressing grief for the senseless loss of life. Some may be personally affected, others may know someone who is. The rest are simply aping Bud and Mitzy two McMansions down, like with those fucking Lance Armstrong bracelets.


The best that I can come up with is that a bumper sticker represents the last, pithy word in an argument that I didn’t ask to have. I guess every time the owner looks at hus own bumper, hu says, “I sure told that guy.” That would certainly explain the escalation between the Jesus Fish People and the Darwin Fish People.
