Wanna Buy My Ferrari?

On the way to work Friday morning (which really sucked, by the way, cuz when I arrived I was stuck in a 4 hour BORING meeting all in Spanish so that's why I wrote this blog on a piece of paper to make it look like I was taking notes but I got this cool piece of paper that says I concluded the program), I saw a truck with a big red chicken decal on the back window. No words. Nothing to explain why the owner placed a big red chicken on his truck. Inquiring minds want to know.

Some car decals make sense. A very popular one is a tribute to some loved one who has died including their name, dates, and epitaph like "En las manos de dios" which means "In the hands of God".  Some are silly like the boy from Calvin & Hobbes peeing. I've read in the newspapers that the Mexican drug cartels use decals like John Deere to identify each other. Sorta puts a whole new meaning in John Deere's slogan, "Nothing runs like a Deere."  The latest trend is to sticker up the car, SUV, truck, and maybe even the John Deere tractor with Ferrari decals. This I don't get. Do they believe they'll fool me into thinking their Dodge truck is a Ferrari?  Well, if that works, I'm fixin' to slap a bunch of Ferrari stickers on my old pickup truck.  Maybe I can fool someone into buying it.

  1. hahahaha, it's a code for a quick pass when Policia Federal stops you. They know the truck is fully loaded with cocaine. Don't ever try it, you will find yourself a good deal of problems if "contras" find you...

    A concern Mexican :P

  5. Good Technics and are known for their top high quality and strength. Bumper stickers printed in move type brands make them all the more easy to use, and distribute.
