what happens when the car is sold?

They sell them at thinkgeek.com

It represents their family more than a stick figure.

13. Who wants to announce to every potential creep in the

world that they have a certain number of little kids, or that, as one set of figures I saw indicated, the woman is now divorced and living alone with her kids.

I think that is just asking for trouble.

32. I have seen it done two ways. One shows the whole

family, but with the Dad crossed out with a big "X". The other shows the whole family, except that there is an "X" where the dad is supposed to be.

28. I saw one of those a few days back.

Back in the Baby on Board days, I had a beat-up old van with a 2X4 bolted to one of the back doors. I then took a life-size baby doll and screwed it to the board with a 3/8" lag bolt thru its chest. A little red paint and Voila!

People would get pretty pissed.

22. Doesn't bother me.

We don't have them, but I don't dislike them. I haven't seen the baby on board sign on an actual car (only in cartoons), but why would that bother people?

The memorials strike me as odd, because I can't imagine if you had to scrap it off to sell the car--or when the car died... I think that would upset me if it were on my car, but it doesn't faze me much otherwise.

What's the problem?

They are the equivalent of 'distracted driver'.

It was like 'WATCH OUT FOR ME I HAVE A BABY ON BOARD I'M SPECIAL GIVE ME ROOM'



Bullshit, those kids are part of the me me me generation now.

39. I am sure that is what the purchasers thought they meant.

However, given the typical driving behaviors, they quickly became "distracted driver" signs.

40. I find them somewhat annoying

Why would you want to announce to the world how many kids you have?

I wonder if mega-families like the Duggars have these. Their entire back window would be covered with stick figures.

41. Where I live there are two indicators of Fundies in my Red county

the stick figures and Star 99.1 small sticker on the rear of the car. Star 99.1 a service of Pillar of Fire, a not-for-profit 501-c-3 organization that plays Christian music.


The sticker and the stick figures go hand in hand around here. Rarely are they seen separate.


They also have an 'approved' business listing that their listeners can go to .......... http://www.star991fm.com/Business/All
