"Cars Suck" stickers...where to get?

I saw a small oval sticker "Cars Suck" on the top tube of a roadie last weekend, and he took off before I could ask him where he got it. Anyone know where a guy could buy a bunch of 'em? Seems the perfect handout thing to hand out at group rides, bike racks, etc...

Thanks for any replies...

Not quite.THIS is motorcycle oriented but many of the products have bicycling applications just as well.

Do we have to be so negative. Couldn't we just get a sticker that says "bikes rock"?

Isn't this kinda like telling a really big ugly dude, "You're ugly and I hate your guts!"?

Thanks Bertfixy! That's the one. I think it's more like mumbling under your breath about how ugly the big dude is, as it's small and almost invisible to any passing car while you are on the road. I just like the directness of how it sounds. It's a statement of radical thinking I just find appealing...I'm gonna get some.

Seriously, cars are good. Very good. Cars don't suck. Cars don't blow. Cars are good. Cars are good. And if I keep saying it over and over it will make it true.

Do the emissions from motorized vehicles hack the atmosphere?

So, please don't be upset when I hack.

Or declare war on Africa or India for having Elephants. After all I don't have an Elephant so they shouldn't either, they must just be just showing off with such a tall animal!
??? I thought he was merely looking for some stickers; not for a reason to invade, or maybe I misread.

"Nah... I don't mind pushing my agenda on your lifestyle. You should be thankful I'm helping you become a better person and see how the evil cars are ruining your life. So which sticker would you like? I've got 4 different kinds all brand spanking new off the truck."

You know, this thread was a question on where to find a sticker, not asking for a debate.

Personally I don't care if you don't hate cars or how many suvs you own, I'm just interested in the stickers.

youch! folks getting a bit prickly out there, no?

and on that note, hoping I dont invite some flaming- anyone seen that 'zine/website that is this guy's personal little pro-biking stance. its got downloadable flyers to distribute that are all pro-bike... things like "I never have to pay for parking" and top ten reasons to ride a bike.
its got some catchy simple bike name to the site, like, www.gorideabike.com but thats not it...

the sticker debate had me remembering the site bit not the address.

Now those are stickers I can get behind....positive things about cycling, rather than "cars suck"-flavored negativity. Some cyclists wonder why cagers treat people on bikes like crap, all while they are sporting "cars suck" stickers. C'mon people, this isn't a competition or some crazy "car-vs-bike" war. At least I hope not....

How I did it:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ck%22+stickers

http://www.yakresearch.com/stickem.html

Some people treat everyone like crap fellow cagers or bicyclists. I think the most stupid bumber stickers are "mean people suck". While I agree it just seems so wimpy. I really think that the NASCAR "SUNOCO"s stickers are stupid. Someone should get a sticker that says "SUCKS" and put that under the SUNOCO sticker.

Free country to say whatever you want more or less.
