micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.

Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)

Some things never go out of style. Stickers of Calvin of Calvin & Hobbes fame taking a piss on the name of something that you don't like are always a great addition to any man's pickup truck, for instance. Your buddies dig them because they show you aren't afraid to take a stand in a humorous manner. The ladies like them because they show that the driver is a bad boy that they love to love.
Seriously, yesterday I saw a Ford Ranger that had two of those stickers. On the right, Calvin was taking a leak on "Chevy." On the left, it was "Osama."
Take to time laugh sufficiently.
I can't help but imagine some rocket scientist on the morning on September 11, 2001 screaming about what the terrorists did to his or her country. "This is as bad as when I see a Chevrolet on the road," he or she might say.
I'd say the guy, or gal, who operates the pickup doesn't take the "war on terror" seriously enough if it wasn't for the fact that the U.S. military has distributed "playing cards" to troops with each card having a picture of a wanted Iraqi leader. The proprietor of the Ranger apparently has an attitude about the "war on terror" similar to what the military wants from the troops in Iraq.
I'm rather disappointed that these cards do not appear to be up for sale on eBay.
