Open Letter

An open letter to all Christian mini-van drivers, particularly those with excessive bumper stickers, fish, and dangling crosses:

I do my best not to stereotype you, but you're making it really hard.

Catbird and her new mini-van might take offense to this! :-)

Personally, I kind of like seeing what saved vehicles we'll get to drive in heaven. My truck hasn't been baptised with a fish or cross so I'll only get to drive it this side of heaven. I'm hoping I'll get to drive the Jesus-fished BMW I saw the other day.

Nary a cross or fish will be found on my new minivan. Or ANY Martin car for that matter!
I made a decision years ago that my road rage and speeding might well destroy the effect of a well-intended sticker witness.
I chose the road rage over the fish. Sad, huh?

haha i dont put any of those things on my car because i dont want people like Karin stereotyping me in with the rest of the crazy christian drivers.

I think the sad thing about this is it's all about the fact that we are too selfish to give up our speeding and road rage...

rob said...

Oh, I can give it up any time I want. I just don't want to.

Stay far away from any minivan with a particular radio station's sticker on it. They've set the stereotype in stone a long time ago.

another sad case... today at the gas station, a mini-van with a fish on the back parked at the pump with a NEWBORN baby left alone in the front seat of the car; not buckled into the carrier and screaming. what are people thinking?! then again i live in KY.

What if they made a high performance mini-van, similar to the Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evo, which are high-performance 4-door sedans?

It must be either rear or all-wheel drive, have a 4 or 6-cylinder turbo engine with 4 valves per cylinder, a crisp and responsive transmission and handling. Oh yeah, and it must also have some semblance of sporty looks, if that's even possible.

Oh, and whoever buys them must actually drive them fast, unlike the old grey-haired guys driving new Corvettes.
