Left wing? Right wing? Gold wing? No wing?

Carey wins the contest for providing the first snapshot of the icon for which this blog is named. Garden variety Calvin peeing on a Ford, the one that started it all, I daresay. Nice composition to boot.

Bos indicus

I had been wondering what would be an appropriate response to Sara's jihad sticker. Anyone I showed it to said that even in Berkeley, yes that car would get keyed. What do we have here besides the ubiquitous Coexist stickers (puke)? I really wanted to get the Cowboy Up: Iranian edition I followed en route to work, with complementary pink family stickers with 5 women and no men. Not my day.

But then, picking up propane out back of a filling station in Mountain View, I found: yes an old Cheyenne with Bos indicus on the door. It says, Yes I am new to your country, yes Krishna was raised by cows and bathed in milk, yes that's a bull's cock on my driver's side door. He says, no sorry we are not selling it.

Clash of Civilizations

Sara and I have been going back and forth on this for weeks - I'll see Calvin peeing on "GMC" in the back window of a Dodge Ram, and she one ups me with a GMC with a bumper sticker reading "My other toy has tits". My San Francisco is thought to have a permissive culture, but I think it's Sara's Wyoming that proves more lax in this context.

Sara had a leftover pile of American Flags from the last campaign cycle, and started posting them under the destination of Calvin's urine, "My Wife", "Mecca", etc. And then some of the oddballs came out. Hobbes peeing. Calvin peeing on himself by accident. What does that even mean? Even in old Cheyenne the semiotics can get quite abstruse.

That's the intro. Here's the inaugural bumper sticker.
