A few days ago I was driving and saw a guy driving a Dodge Ram truck with this decal across his entire back window:
I have a pretty lenient sense of humor, but really?
While I recognize that I am clearly not the target audience for this particular truck driver, I’m kind of wondering who IS. Are there girls with low enough self-respect (or low enough literacy rates) that they will think this is adorable? Is this guy single, or worse, popular with the ladies? Worse yet, does he HAVE a daughter? I cringe.
Maybe this is judgmental but the girl I picture thinking this is entertainingly clever is the same one who, driving with her girlfriends, sees this and says, “Oooh, Candi, pull up beside this guy while I quickly scrawl my phone number on my chest with this lipstick!”
At least guys like this aren’t hard to read – no woman can claim she was surprised by his crude side after he hid it so well while they were dating…if only all slimeballs could be so obvious, maybe we’d have a lot fewer unhappy marriages in the world.
This, on the other hand, while not totally appropriate and still indicating a certain type of person, is funny:
So there you have it. Funny: Harmless skewing of facts. Not funny: Any use of the word “ram” that does not refer directly to a male sheep.
I’m glad we had this talk. Evaluate your bumper stickers accordingly 🙂
