Kenny Smith has your “Don’t Get Stuck on Stupid” bumperstickers.
I’ve never been much for bumperstickers – but isn’t there at least a little irony in a sticker with that catchphrase?
I have a Kill Whitey sticker on my car, is that wrong?
Back when I was young and impressionable, I saw a bumper sticker that said, “Flush Limbaugh. Think For Yourself.” And I thought it represented a perfectly cogent argument, enough for me to use it as a tagline in my e-mails. I’d never heard Rush (and in fact still haven’t), but that didn’t stop me.
It wasn’t until years later that I thought back on it and realized how neatly I’d fallen into its rhetorical trap
I succombed to a couple of T’shirts and was torn between the rush of feeling bullish and coming off looking like Bush’s arse monkey.
However after I got a few thumbs up on “commies-aren’t-cool” I decided to stay the course … but only on warm days on trips to the beer store.
I don’t have any bumper stickers on my car, but if I did it’d be DU Pioneers or a Colorado Avalanche sticker.
I’m sorry, but putting bumper stickers on your car is a sign that you are stuck on stupid.
Don’t Get Stuck On Stupid
Gentle Readers, Getcher very own Don’t Get Stuck On Stupid bumper stickers here. Caution: they ain’t cheap. Transcript and MP3 of the press conference where the catch phrase was coined here. As Ever, TWC tip of the glass to Vodkapundit
Now, if it were a _bumper sticker’s_ bumper sticker, it would say “Don’t Get Stuck On, Stupid”
Try the veal.
So what does it make you if you’ve got one of those little Darwin fish on your truck?

Lieutenant General Russel Honore has gifted us with the catchphrase of the year: Don’t get stuck on stupid! During a press conference addressing the re-evacuation of New Orleans in advance of Hurricane Rita first tells reports not to get stuck on stupi…
I’m too rotten a driver to place on my car a bumper sticker of a cause I favor.
How about if I have those shiny female silhouette mudflaps?
How about if the silhouette is Hillary Clinton?
I don’t think Hillary’s hips would fit on the mudflaps of a semi.
This is kind of like the phrase, “think outside the box.” When someone says that, it tells me that they don’t “think outside the box.” But then, by saying that myself, well, I suppose could be the subject of an Escher painting.
‘Peeing Calvin’ Decals Now Recognized As Vital Channel Of National Discourse
“I used to devote hours to reading newspapers and magazines in an effort to understand my world and the issues that shape it,” said Tuscaloosa, AL, resident Elvin Crosley, who proudly sports decals of Calvin urinating on a Democratic Party donkey and Greenpeace logo in the rear window of his pick-up truck. “But that became a tremendous expenditure of time I simply couldn’t afford. These decals make a concise, digestible point in approximately two seconds and reach a far wider audience than I could by writing letters to my local paper or congressman.”
I also recall one that was something like ‘Man shows displeasure with Calvin peeing stickers by displaying a Calvin peeing on a Calvin peeing sticker’. I thought it was funny.

Depends who you stick it on…
Every time I hear somebody say, “think outside the box”, I always want to tell them that the box is much bigger than they think it is.
Besides, people who actually think outside the box tend to be very dangerous.
Hillary’s hips could be the mud flaps on a semi.
Thank you, thank you very much. I’m here all week.
Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl’s got ‘em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?
- “Big Bottom,” Spinal Tap
I didn’t realize that it’s one of LtGen Honore’s pet-phrases. A Patton for out times. Huzzah!!
Actually, no. There’s no irony in putting that phrase on a bumper sticker.
Semi-humourous coincidence, yes. Irony, no.
Isn’t it ironic nobody knows what irony is anymore, but everyone describes everything odd/unusual as ironic?
A little tooooo ironic.
Yeah I really do think.
Its all Alanis’ fault.
(You’re welcome for now having had this song stuck in your head. Have a nice afternoon.)
Kenny, you truly evil man.
