silly stuff installation #2: Got Poop?April 24, 2008
When I came home from church this evening, I got out of our friend’s car (I don’t have one of my own, so she gave me a ride) and noticed a bumper sticker on another parked car that read “Got Poop?”
I wondered aloud to our friend (well, Athena’s friend. She doesn’t know about myself or The Integral) what the bumper sticker could be referring to. I suggested that perhaps the owner of that car, also had a canine or two. Dogs poop in the yard, and when people walk them in public areas, they are required to pick up their poo. Makes sense, right?
There could be any number of possible explanations of the meaning of that bumper sticker. Only because we’re autistic, and keen on minute oddities, do we bother to write about such a seemingly insignificant, even silly, thing as a bumper sticker that says Got Poop?
One of us is very fascinated by poop also, so this is for that one as well. We won’t say who, for the protection of the guilty.
Anyone else have ideas as to what the sticker could have meant?
I’m very interested to hear responses. Who knows, maybe it’s some deep, existential meaning that no one has figured out yet. Could you be the first?
Okay, okay, obviously I’m exaggerating. But sometimes, taking pleasure in silliness can be a very good way to briefly escape the stresses of the daily grind.
