Euro Oval Stickers & The Decline of Civilization


Back in ’69 most European license plates looked the same.  So in an effort to distinguish it was required that you apply a sticker with your country code of origin.

Later it became cool to put stickers of places your ancestors are from that you’ve never been to because many could only identify with their heritage as they lacked any personality of note.

Then it was quiet and suddenly, out of the silence came a shitload of stupid novelty oval stickers that were basically the equivalent of Calvin peeing on something only less funny and more low brow than a “no fat chicks” sticker (which lacks the subtlety of the “free mustache rides t-shirt).  Many even had pictures, can you believe it?  Even worse, plenty were showcasing agendas.

Absurd Ovals

Today, we’ve risen above the bad taste and simply have stickers that are so personalized that they’re unidentifyable.  Is that a football team, a tv show or an internet meme that’s over my head?

Oh it’s your alma mater? Well sir, they owe you an education because you are clearly a dipshit!

    Agreed. Around here (MA), it’s become a means of expressing town snobbery – people put ones with their town on them if they’re proud it.

    BTW, for a long time I thought the LAX ones were for people who really like LA International Airport.
