Z-Swag In The Wild: DESTRUCTION!

Every once in a while I get photos of Z-Swag “in the wild”.  This came in today with the message:

Someone ripped it off the car, while parked at […].  It went down fighting!  (Note the tough shards.)


The sticker in question is HERE

Someone had to know what that meant and really hated it, probably catholic.  That’s diabolical.

    Well, look on the bright side: at least the vandal knows enough Latin to know what the sticker said, even if that person disliked it enough to destroy it. :-)

    My solution to this problem has always been to adhere my bumper sticker to a sheet magnet from the craft section at Walmart. It stays on your car when you are driving, but remains safe when you are not nearby.

    Find the person with the Hillary bumper sticker and there is a good chance that red, white, and black sticky shards are on their grubby fingers.

    [The problem is that this occurred in Madison. Think about it.]

    Or maybe one of your fans sold that car and left the sticker on to evangelize. Just think…the benighted soul who purchased that car tried to remove it without knowing what it means, but now the pieces remain. Maybe curiosity will overcome them, and they will think, “What the heck does that MEAN anyway!?” They google it and, low and behold, the local parish gets a new RCIA catechumen!

  5. I think another Z-fan wanted it for his own car.

    Mine went MIA at the carwash !

  7. If I had money, I’d send the owner a new one.

    The obvious suspect is Lex Luthor.

    Is there a clear version for the inside of the window? I like those because they are protected from the elements and cannot be stolen by the common vandal. That said, people can and do break windows, but even when diabolically urged, most will not because of the risk of getting caught.

    That said, my hubby refuses to allow any bumper stickers on any of our vehicles, he really feels strongly against it. I never have understood his logic but as he feels very strongly on it, I humor him, but I just love bumper stickers and would put them all over.

    In graduate school I had bumper stickers on my laptop, which amused the instructors very much.

    My son when in college had a pro-life sticker on his laptop…the provost was giving a lecture, and saw my son’s sticker, and gave him a 60 second stare, trying, I guess, to intimidate him or something. Didn’t work.

    Last year, I saw a Fr. Z sticker on a car in Reston, VA, outside a Whole Foods…definitely caught my eye, and made me smile.
