Another garbage bumper sticker.

Another garbage bumper sticker.

I was taking a stroll the other day.  As I walked, taking in giant gulps of fresh air and enjoying the exceptional fall weather, I came across a dirty gray Volkswagen Jetta.  By the looks of it an early 2000's model.   The exact year is irrelevant.  What WAS relevant was what I saw plastered on the bumper.  A Jolly Roger.  The staple of pirate ships everywhere, if they were still sailing the high seas, that is.  This particular German dumpster on wheels had seen its last adventure if I may say so.  What the sticker said beneath the skull & crossbones logo almost made me throw up.  

Time flies....when you're having rum.

That's exactly what the message conveyed.  Oh, and just to really drive home the point, the skull was tipping back a bottle of rum.  At that moment I knew that somewhere near there was a pair of jean shorts, sandals with socks and a wife-beater.  

So I did what any person with self respect for the human race would do.  I cut their brake lines and walked away.

Bon voyage you filthy sailor, you.
