That's one of my favorites, too. Except the one I saw said "A$$h*ole" instead of "Idiot".

I think that's actually pretty good theology, too. Unconditional love and all that...

Here in New England, many cars have "This car climbed Mt. Washington" stickers. Once I saw "This car fell off Mt. Washington".
