Wrong on so many levels...

Yesterday, I was cruising down I-75 behind this old-man looking truck with Ohio tags. He had several bumper stickers, but without glasses, I couldn't really make them all out. However, one had large enough font that I could see the first line, but I had to do a bit of tailgating to get the full message.

I'll transcribe it as it was printed, but the italics and red lettering are mine:

"HONK!!! IF YOUR HORNY"

Now, aside from being mortified by the sheer tackiness of the message, I was fully appalled at the fact that someone would spend perfectly good money printing bumper stickers without proofreading first.

In fact, if it had read "you're" instead, I probably would have just rolled my eyes and not wasted my time blogging about it. Aren't you lucky!
