Carve around town in a white van with How am I driving stickers on all fronts, and your own premium-rate phone number underneath. Your girlfriend keeps the suckers talking. Cha-Ching!

Same(ish) Idea, different intent http://www.halfbake...om_20Cold_20Callers

Similar idea http://www.halfbake...use_20bumpersticker
Two for you, gw. But not the same as your idea, I'll admit. [yamahito, Sep 04 2002, last modified Oct 06 2004]

       I never call the 800 numbers, so I don't see too many people falling for the 900 numbers.. Usually a finger and a horn honk lets 'em know just fine
Mr Burns, Sep 04 2002
  

       that is possibly the number for the small print /legal section at Scotland Yd.

       More like central London speak, bliss. If you 'carve someone up' it means that you have driven across in front of them without using your indicators.

       I'm sure I've seen this somewhere before..

       Conceptual Bumper Sticker: "How's my driving? Cut me off and find out!"

       oh yeah, yam? tough guy huh? you gonna pop a link in my ass?
General Washington, Sep 04 2002
  

       Never said I saw it *here*. But here's a couple of links, anyway. What you do with them in your own time is your own business, and, frankly, I'd rather not know about it...
yamahito, Sep 04 2002
  

       Or my favorite US car window diamond: "Armed psychopath on board".
DrCurry, Sep 05 2002
  

       A favorite of mine is "some people wouldnt be alive if it wasnt illegal to shoot them"
Gulherme, Sep 05 2002
  

       Well... moral victory to you yamahito, looks like my idea weaseled through into the chink between those two. (No pun intended. Because you're Japanese.)
General Washington, Sep 05 2002
  

       Well, no on all counts - first, chink doesn't directly relate to being japanese, nor does yamahito, in and of its elf
thumbwax, Sep 05 2002
  

       er.. zigactly.

       //Because you're Japanese//   

       As thumbwax has pointed out, I'm not Japanese.
yamahito, Sep 05 2002
  

       ohhhh... stop ganging up on me, you two meanies. Anyhow they're all foreigners over the county line, to us George Dubyas.
General Washington, Sep 05 2002
  

       hmmmmmmmmmm, could it be that General Washington is really... Colin Powell?!
thumbwax, Sep 05 2002
  

       Fortunately, Mr. Powell is both more observant and less conniving.
jurist, Sep 05 2002
  

       What? jurist, you're comparing me unfavorably with the man who, yesterday, looked Africa in the face and told them "international treaty strictures on climate change [are] inapporopriate and too costly for the US"?
General Washington, Sep 05 2002
  

       He's also the guy who's counselling caution over Iraq.
angel, Sep 05 2002
  

       In reference to bumper sticker-phone me-scam, for those who take themselves too seriously they deserve to be fined. There's enough fools around to make a fortune, if that is, it were legal, is it legal? Yeah, on Angels' comment, the US secretary of state is the one guy we didn't want to see 'pied', sent in to take the flack cause he's one of few with any salt.
Borallah, Sep 06 2002
  

       looks like he should of counselled harder.   

       And Bubba? You don't want to make enemas with me, believe me.
General Washington, Sep 07 2002
  

       I don't have a girlfriend.
NickTheGreat, Sep 26 2002
  

       The penultimate sentence of the idea. Read it.
NickTheGreat, Sep 26 2002
  

       Or your boyfriend, then.
yamahito, Sep 26 2002
  

       I'm flattered yama, really, but I'm afraid I'm just not that way inclined. I hope you understand.
NickTheGreat, Sep 27 2002
  

       I really like the idea of driving like a complete idiot, with "HOW AM I DRIVING? CALL..." in huge letters all over the van. A good movie scene would have someone steal a truck with this sign on it and starts hopping curbs, crashing around, etc. In the end the van crashes and is totalled in the midst of all sorts of damaged stuff. An old guy walks up, squints at the number on the sticker, pulls out a phone and, frowning, dials in.
