Driving to my Panera satellite office this morning, I was stuck in traffic on Route 53 behind a hulking green Escalade where - featured in prominent red lettering - was the beat slogan: "Don't like my Driving? Dial 1-800-Bite-Me." This was not a traditional bumpersticker but an actual license plate posted above his regular plate. It looked like it took a great deal of time and effort - involving specialty tools and screws - to affix this ridiculous sign to the rear of the car.
My question is what kind of a loser a) seeks out and purchases such an item, and b) dedicates a copious number of hours to rigging up a special platform for it on his/her automobile? The size of the Escalade is already suggestive of a deficit in one's life (or anatomy) but it really takes a special kind of jackass to drive around with something so intentionally antagonistic -- in Hingham, no less. I hope he drives into Boston and gets carjacked.
