For those of you with ribbons on your vehicle, take them off.
No one cares.
I was driving down the road today and every other car had one of those damn ribbons on the back.
Pink ribbons, yellow ribbons, black ribbons, ribbons with paw prints, red ribbons, white ribbons, blue ribbons, red, white and blue ribbons.
For fuck’s sake.
Not only do people not know what half of them mean anymore, but no one cares that you have a ribbon on your car. Of course you support the troops/battle for breast cancer/America/whatever today’s fucking cause is. If you didn’t, you’re a moron. I don’t have any ribbons on my car, does that mean I support common sense causes less? Doubtful (except for that animal one. I’m all for the slaughtering of cats if it leads to a better, tastier chocolate bar).
The point is, once again, a fad has been run into the ground and has become pointless. Like the baby-on-board signs of the late 80s, they’ve been played out.
If you want show your support for the troops, do what my roommate does, mail them books or phonecards or whatever. I’m sure they’ll dig that a helluva lot more than you toting around in your Volvo with 27 ribbons on the back.
