We the People (Places and Things)

It's not the very best bumper sticker I've spotted so far, but it's right up there.

Actually, "I am pro verb." I teach writing to lawyers and one of their common sins is "nouniness." Instead of "visited," they'll say, "made a visitation." Instead of "observed," they'll say "made an observation." We try to stamp this out!

I wonder what being "pro noun" is really about.

That is fantastic. I love clever bumper stickers, but given the size of the font, you'd have to get up pretty close to read it. Really hilarious.

I am pro wrestling (not really, but my husband and son are going to the taping of "Smack Down" tonight at the Erwin Center in Austin).

nice catch!

my favorite bumper sticker read, "actions speak louder than bumper stickers."

too bad i couldn't snap a photo of it.

Something I thought I'd never see was a Bush sticker on a Prius. That was until I was in Grand Junction, CO in 2008. I saw two of them. I'd call that an oxymoron bumper sticker.

The local's favorite up here is "Mammoth...Don't feed our bears".

(I rather like Alex's though!!!)

If I am pro noun...what am I for??? Very thought provoking Ms LA!!!

Mister Earl said...

DB: It was not only an oxymoron bumper sticker, it was a pro moron bumper sticker.

dbdubya said...

Are you saying that people who drive a Prius are morons?

Mister Earl said...

Only when they put a Bush sticker on them!

Sort of like an Obama sticker on a Hummer.

Mister Earl said...

Or a Ten sticker on anything!

I love this!
When some people tell stories, they can get into 'pronoun' trouble - too many 'shes/hes... How annoying!
I guess I am anti pro noun?
