Q I read that you were looking for more favorite bumper stickers. My all-time favorite is: "I'm spending my children's inheritance." Sure I'm not the only fan of this one.

A No, you're not. Here are some that make us laugh and others that make us cringe.

Q My favorite bumper sticker was one that said, "I AM working for food." Lots of people liked it.

Della Phillips Smith

A Has me smiling.

Q My favorite bumper sticker is: "Treat her like a thoroughbred and she won't be a nag." It has worked at our house for 60 years now!

Lyman Taylor

A This may be my favorite.

Q I just saw a topical bumper sticker that I thought was worthy of the space it occupied: "Guns don't kill people, drivers with cell phones do."

Amanda Lundie

A Point made.

Q My opinion on bumper stickers is summed up beautifully by a joke from comedian Demetri Martin:

"A lot of people don't like bumper stickers. I don't mind bumper stickers. To me a bumper sticker is a shortcut. It's like a sign that says 'Hey, let's never hang out.' "

Q I couldn't agree more with Santosh Ghirnikar about the proliferation of annoying bumper stickers. However, in that light, I would pick this one as the best, seen by a friend in L.A.: "PLEASE DON'T TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF." That says it all!

Mark Foote

San Jose

A It is creative.

Q The worst bumper sticker award goes to "Baby on Board". What in the world does that have to do with anything? ... I have always disliked the "Baby on Board" signs.

Bob Lamb, Eric Brandt and many more

A Waaaaaah!

A I am not touching that last one, but I love the comment about horses.

Q I have one of Mr. Roadshow's "Be a Thinker, Use Your Blinker" stickers. I have had many great comments about it and it keeps me mindful to use my blinker too. It is being very well received.

Anne Garcia

Hayward
