Show Your Support

It started out innocently enough. Yellow magnetic ribbons for your car, showing your support for the troops in Iraq (whether you agreed with why they were there or not). Soon variations with American flag designs followed.

Then, in the inevitable perversion of the original idea, they began to sprout different colors and slogans for a rainbow of causes. I knew it had gone overboard when I spotted one yesterday that was a weird color I couldn't associate to any known cause. I got closer to read the text: "Support organ donors".

Luckily, the internet is always there to skewer popular culture and fads. You can get a magnetic ribbon to support the guy that makes them, or to support the ribbons themselves.

I should make a "Support Nuclear Toast" magnetic ribbon. The only question is what color to use: black, brown, or glow-in-the-dark green?

I vote for the glow in the dark green.

Umm... black of course. Duh.
I like my black Lance Armstrong bracelet that says "Corporate Whore"

I saw one yesterday that said "autism" and it was a bunch of colorful puzzle pieces in different colors. Josh noted that it could be scary if the driver himself were autistic....
