07-11-2011 Okay, those last ones had me guffawing a good 50 ceairols! Especially the devil one, the b*tch one, and the men being wrong one. I've heard that if you have more than three bumper stickers on your car then you're certifiable. If I put these three on, with the two of my dogs, the Rockstar Games one, and my fairy princess one, then yep, I'd be certifiable. But you know, I think I already am.Oh, wait!
