Who Says We Have No Class in Florida?


Sunday we drove out to the beach just to observe the amazing clear water of the Atlantic Ocean. For whatever reason the water right now is crystal clear and awesomely beautiful.

We parked at one beach access parking lot. As we were walking up to the crossover I spied this car. It had what appears to be a very desiccated fish head mounted onto the rear window and some sort of clear stuff made to look like a splash as the fish is leaping up from inside the car/water. I mean is that class or what? I’m voting for “or what”

As to the owner of this car, Republican or Democrat? Why?
I can’t answer that question since I didn’t talk to the owner. I’m just curious what you think.

Republican.

Why? Honorary Member of the Sheriff's Association sticker on window.

Hmm. I'm going to make a wild-ass guess of Democrat. My general impression of car-owners is that Democrats are more likely to put not only bumper stickers but goofy stuff on their cars, maybe they are more interested in making a statement than in maintaining the resale value of the vehicle.

Democrats: plastered in stickers, sometimes art cars.
Repubs: one (if any) tastefully placed Bush/Cheney sticker or one of those damned "W" stickers. Trying to imagine what a Republican's art car would look like.

There's a Sheriff's Association supporter sticker from 2002 in the glass too. Not sure what that means. I used to have one of those many years ago. It means somebody rung up the phone at dinnertime and asked for a donation of support I think I gave them $10 and they sent me a sticker (never hurts to have something like that in case you are pulled over, I fugured). Then I got rid of the land line phone because I was tired of getting calls like that.

I can't even say... yikes. That is what I can say.

Yikes.

I saw one of these while driving to MD from NJ, I thought I was seeing things! But anything to take away the thought of driving!
Someone actually pays money for those things!

Must say that is pretty classy. It is something I would expect to see in Alabama though not Florida. I would guess a Rush Limbaugh fan and GOP myself.

I constantly see the ones around here featuring a tennis ball or baseball, but thankfully I haven't seen that. Bad taste doesn't usually break down along party lines, but I'd venture a guess that you might be looking at the car of a Republican.

beats the rubber "balls" that hang from the licence plates or the tow hitch on pick up trucks! ; )

Clever. Disturbing, irrational, but clever nonetheless.

Do you suppose Fred the Cat would like one of those on his kittie car?

A little snack, you know?

I think the owner is an Independent...a guy who probably voted for Ralph Nader. ;-)

I'm just wondering what happened to the back half of the fish.

Next thing you know, they'll have half a (fake?) human sticking out of there.... ugh.

I don't care what his persuasion might be but I can tell that it is charming in it's tackiness. It brings back found memories when we used to love Americans with their peculiar folk art, for instance, along then famous Route 66. Of course, now when we see items like this, we connect it with some sort of mental defect that goes explaining why your country ventured to democratize place like Iraq. Or what ever other reason is the reason du jour.

Hey Pekka!Haven't seen you about. Thought maybe you have had your rid of us filthy and obviously stupid Americans.

Libertarian for sure.

We go our own way and don't give a shit about what anyone thinks about us.

Fishheads rule.

PS-those Sheriff Association stickers don't get you out of tickets.....the guy must have just bought the car used and it already had the sticker on it.

I've seen ones that are baseballs, golf balls and even footballs crashing through the rear window - but I've never seen a fish before!

Reich Wing Rethug all the way. Honorary Member of the Sheriff's Association bumper sticker...a Democrat would have steamed that off.

But the clincher....that fish is a large mouth bass. Nobody but a Republican would do something that tacky. A Democrat would have the fish nicely mounted. OTOH, as a previous commenter said...."It IS Florida!" LOL!!

Or just plain old bass fisherman. They are in a league ALL their own...

I'd say it's not class and I'd say it's not "or what"...I'd say it's going to make some redneck a whole hell of a lot of money! Bet if they showed this to GWBush he'd invest in it and market the eyesore and make millions to add to his stash of 21 mil. Of course it would be illegal in most states and in others it would either get the driver rear ended or beaten to a pulp for the sheer stupidity of it.

Maybe I should have just agreed with your "or what" and left it at that? :>)

Peace,
Mark
