god will not bless an educator driving a BMW who doesn't even seem to recognize the fact that she is driving around with an extra apostrophe. This car parks every day in my SCHOOL parking lot!

Oh, that's just plain embarrassing. What self-respecting teacher would post something so grammatically incorrect? Funny how the sentiment of the bumper sticker could reflect the war in Iraq just as easily as abortion, and yet I'd bet $10 that this BMW-driving dolt supports sending teenagers into that Middle East meat grinder.

Well, the bumper sticker doesn't actually say anything about killing the children who live in other countries, it only specifies that killing "our" children is wrong. I think that killing other's children is actually okay...if I'm not mistaken.

If only! The bumper sticker is meaningless on its (not "it's") face, and specifies nothing at all, due to the grammatical error. The sentiment of the sticker is another matter altogether, lending to numerous interpretations. Nations do not abort babies, but nations do send their babies to war. The ambiguity of the message, added to its abominable execution, would send shivers down the spine of any teacher ... any real teacher anyway.

You MUST buy this sticker and tag her bumper with it!

sabotage idea: add a white sticker below it that continues the thought.

"So bring our children[s] home NOW!"

if the message is anti-abortion, the bearer clearly does not see how blessed our nation is.

Swiss Miss said...

No sabotage-It will only infuriate her, and besides, the grammar mistake on the sticker is sabotage enough.

What you should do is buy the sticker Klay suggests and park next to her everyday. She probably won't even notice how shrewd you are.

Hey, if you change the punctuation just a bit, the apostrophe works:
God will not bless a nation that kills: it's children

Ala: children bless nations that kill:P.
(btw, I'm not sure if the colon is the correct choice here:)
