The first bumper stickers were mainly designed to attract tourists. For example, in the 1940s and 1950s, famous destinations had stickers that recreated their signs. The staff would simply walk around the parking lot and attach the promotional sticker to every car that came to visit.

However, people soon realized that this surface can be used for other purposes as well. Bumper stickers to express political support were introduced in the 1952 presidential election between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson II. Now they can be commercial, religious, secular, humorous, or in support of various sports teams and other organizations.

Bored Panda has collected the best of the best and made this list to celebrate probably the only thing in traffic that doesn't suck. Do you have a picture of a funny bumper sticker that has not yet been submitted? Upload it below!

The LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil, but money in itself isn't bad. If you're going to quote the Bible, please do it correctly.
