From another forum...garbage seen on CafePress

Someone on another forum posted this CafePress link:

http://www.cafepress.com/bull****4u

This link won't work (it contains an expletive that was replaced with asterisks here), but I think you can easily figure out the correct spelling.

It is advertising t-shirts, etc. that say "I don't share the road" and shows a car hitting a bicycle. Just what we need...

People on the other forum have been sending emails to CafePress; might be a good idea so they know that there are a lot of us who don't find this funny!

CafePress is a site where any individual can design, create, and publish their own t-shirts. All of its content is community/user run, and is comparable to a site like ebay.

I think CafePress needs a bit of feedback...

It looks like they got it. The item is no longer listed.

Ugh - my bad. Go to Cafe Press and do a search on "share the road."

The more people I meet, the more I realize that homocidal maniacs are a significant portion of our population.

I think you mean sociopaths.
They're not insane; just egoists who cannot empathize with other people.

No, I mean homocidal maniacs. There are tons of sociopaths too, but they aren't necessarily dangerous.

does anyone else think it would be funny if someone made a jersey of that design? that'd keep the cagers on edge.

What are you worried about? Just a matter of time before a vehicle with that gets some serious vandalism.

In fact, I WANT the type of person who thinks like this to buy a sticker. Go on JAMs, paint a bullseye on your cages for us!
