Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo found himself behind a car this evening that had a sticker on the back window which read, “Loved Baby On Board”.

Of course, “Baby On Board” has been with us for a long while now, but I don’t think I’ve ever noticed such a sticker with “Loved” added, and frankly found it a bit odd.  I mean, “Loved” as opposed to what? “Unwanted Baby on Board”? “‘Mistakes Were Made’ on Board”? “‘Baby I Don’t Really Give Much of a Damn About One Way Or The Other’ on Board”?

And is the implication that without specifying that the baby is loved, other drivers should feel free to go to ramming speed?


I had a friend in college who had a bumper sticker on the back of his car that read, “Baby In Trunk”.   I still think of this every time I see one of these stickers, and admit that I also still chuckle about it.
