    I was out on my morning lunt when I came upon this wonderful bumper sticker:

    Let's eat Grandpa.

    Let's eat, Grandpa.

    Punctuation, spelling, proper grammar are just a few of the things we are losing to the texting/twitter influences. Cursive writing is now used for code. I miss the old days in many areas.

    Well, if they can't read cursive, I'm even safer: I write in Sütterlin.

    When it comes to bumper stickers, sometimes it's not punctuation but location. Take those 'Run, John Doe, RUN!' election stickers; if you support the candidate you place the sticker on the back bumper, if you support the other party you put the sticker on the front bumper.

    All you get from bumper stickers is adhesive that doesn't come off in the car wash.

    Note quite bumper sticker, but here in my little college town we get a lot of students from out of state. One particular young lady, I can only assume from Kentucky, had a personalized license plate on her car that read: KY GIRL

    ummmm...I should have read the post on how to use the quote function. BUT I figured it out mere seconds before the edit time ran out.
    No offense Jack. 'Twas a mere perfunctory proper punctuatory prototype.

    Favorite bumper sticker I’ve yet seen:

    “They’re Lying”

    Profound simple truth in these crazy times.

    “Well, I can’t cure death. This is bad, Morty. You’re trapped in a dead man. Listen, if the situation keeps darkening, do yourself a favor and pop by Pirates of the Pancreas. Obviously I’m biased, but I think it’s great, Morty. It’s a bunch of *belches* pirates running around a *belches* pancreas. We don’t whitewash it, either, Morty. I mean, the pirates are really rapey.” - Rick & Morty

    There should be a little clamp-on display rack/window for bumper stickers so they could be changed like the clever church signs with with and wisdom. I really enjoy short witticisms like the original post. I feel somewhat oppressed by extensive opinion pieces in short sentences, sometimes wallpapering bumpers and other expanses on vehicles. These seem to preempt rather than invite open minded discussion. Everyone has their ardent opinion, and even mine aren't entirely correct, though I would never admit it, especially on a bumper sticker.
