Bumper sticker

There is no such thing as an original bumper sticker so I am guessing many of you have seen this already but it really got to me when I saw it.

I was pulling up behind a car at a red light and from a distance I can see the bumper sticker in bold black type on a yellow back ground says:

JESUS LOVES YOU

I admit it, I fell into stereotypical thinking and was thinking, "Yep, I *know* this person." Then as I got closer though I could see the fine print under the main message:

JESUS LOVES YOU
but everyone else thinks your an asshole!

and I realised just how wrong my stereotypical thoughts were! I almost missed the green light for laughing so hard.

Lesson reinforced! Don't judge too quickly!

My hubby could've written that bumper sticker, it sounds exactly like something out of his mouth.

Guess you learned your lesson huh?

Reminds me of one of those "anti-motivational" posters a friend of mine has. It has a picture of a sinking ship, with the word "Mistakes" underneath. Under that, it reads:

It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

Inspiring, no? Jesus would approve.

I'm sure you've heard "If a**holes could fly, this place would be an airport." But when I saw it on the bumper sticker of a flight student at my school it sent into fits of giggles. I mean, this place IS an airport. And apparently...they CAN FLY.

LOL

What type of car was the bumper sticker on? I'm guessing a vehicle that is at least 5 years old. Maybe a pick-up truck or American car? Stereotypes are fun. Don't knock them.
I only scored a 32 on the nerd test. Sorry.

Reminds me of the one i saw on the back of a Volvo in Boston back in 1972: JESUS SAVES - AND ESPESITO SCORES ON THE REBOUND!

In Boston, hocky is most definitly a religion.
