And then she started inventing bumper stickers…

by Janelle Hanchett

There’s really no appropriate introduction for this, except to say that, for funsies, I decided to create a few bumper stickers. You know, things I would put on my car, were I not afraid of getting mowed down by some irate stranger.

By the way, if you are easily offended or sensitive or believe some things are sacred and should just not be made fun of openly on the internet, I suggest you skip this post. No really. I warned you…I’ll give you a chance to think about it…

Still here?

Good. I knew you’d stay.

That’s why we’re friends.

















Okay seriously. Should we print one of these?

  • luella

    please actually make these. i will put them on my car. especially ‘ i breastfeed in public to make you uncomfortable’ and the ‘go organic’ one. LOL

  • not blessed mama

    i’ll take one of each, please. and 2 of the “stop being a dick” one.

  • Sara

    You are my new hero. Again.

  • Kate


  • Brandon - Daddy Dialogues

    These made me chortle. Especially the random acts of kindness one. I don’t put bumper stickers on my car, but I may reconsider for one of these.

  • Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

    Love Love Love this! I really enjoyed the Jesus one and the Organic one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stephanie

    Awesome! Love ’em!

  • Vanessa

    Ha! I think you missed your calling.

  • Erin


  • Jennifer

    I just love the word “dick”. Gawd I want that bumper sticker.

  • Car stickers

    They are quite humorous lol the breastfeed in public was something giving a message in addition to being funny.

  • Lynsey Summers

    Deffo one of the Too Tired one’s for me please ๐Ÿ™‚ Pure genius, yet again!

  • Shan

    I’m not sure where I’d actually put it, but I LOVE the one about not judging. Love.

    No, really. Love.

  • Melissa

    I would so buy them…. esp the kids, the organic, and the breastfeeding one. It sounds hokey but thanks for keeping me sane- your blog is reminding me to take a breath and there are other people like me in the world.

  • jessica

    there are a few that i would buy!! can you make them, for real?????

  • Kateri Von Steal



    Sharing this with everyone at work.


    and tagging your post in mine BECAUSE IT MADE MY FRIGGIN DAY!

  • Tela

    yes please, i want these! specifically the afterlife one.

  • Sara

    I love the recycling one and the vegan one reminded me of “Save a cow, eat a vegetarian.”

  • Andrea

    Those are awesome. I want one of each too!

  • Amanda | OneMommysThoughts

    I agree that you should definitely make these! I don’t even like bumper stickers but these are great. Better yet…maybe you should turn these into badges and offer them up as freebies (or not) on your site? My personal fav is the breastfeeding on. Classic and all too true!

  • NovelTeaMommy

    Just one? I repeat, JUST ONE?! This is your new career. Think Field of Dreams, you know the “if you build it they will come”* stuff. If you make them we will buy them.

    *if you haven’t seen it, don’t bother. I’m IA grown so it was kinda mandatory state pride stuff.

  • Dee

    Please, make them all.

  • Theresa

    These are AWESOME.

  • Kristi

    Really, you SHOULD make these. I would buy them. I particularly like the “go organic” one (that one made me laugh out loud)!

  • Cheryl @ That's What Che Said

    YES! Print these! They are awesome! I want to be friends in real life!!!

  • Laine

    Holy crud woman, you are so dang funny. LOVE the organic one and I MUST have the breastfeeding one as well!!! Only, you have to make a really special one for those of us who breastfeed our kids well into their freshman year of college (And what did YOU do for spring break Jonah?). I am already starting to get looks… you know… LOOKS, because, you know, he’s one now, and like, my milk suddenly went from being beneficial to slightly poisonous and likely to make him a social deviant. Oh, yeah, and there is also that creepy semi-sexual overtone to it all.

    Geez. Guess I had better go be a mother now, Jonah is playing in the toilet with Guy’s toothbrush (Better his than mine…).

    I totally relate to the recycling one but I just don’t want people to know I don’t actually recycle yet. Because I have to sort. I have to buy bins to sort. I have to buy special bins for each sorted item. Then I have to find a special place for all these sorted bins. Then I actually have to sort things and even worse, teach my whole FAMILY to sort all these things or the whole idea is pointless! Did I mention I have FOUR BOYS not including my husband? Once the sorted bins are full…then what?? SIGH! I think I need that bumper sticker after all…

  • Julia

    Do you ship to Europe?

  • Elizabeth Bowen

    I’ll take a couple of the ones about random acts of kindness and the one about too tired to give a shit.

    I’d totally go out and get drinks or coffee with you…. but I’d much rather come over and do your laundry for you or clean out your fridge or something one day. Because I believe you’d appreciate that more.

  • Rachel

    Love these!!!!
