Despite the fact that I follow the same predictable path to and from work each day and despite the fact that I typically hit the same intersections and exits within the same five-minute window each time, it still surprises me when I come up alongside familiar mobile landmarks in my commute.
Sure, the guy with the "Boycott France!" bumper sticker on his truck probably takes Highway 36 to Manning every day just like me, but really what are the odds that I would end up stopped directly behind him at that light at least two times each week? And yeah, the woman with the exact same purple Saturn as I'm driving likely makes the same left turn from Cty Rd. 12 where I make a right to head down from whence she came, but what are the odds we'd be passing each other at that intersection at the same time so very often?
I feel some strange, unfounded kinship with the Saturn lady, and the France-hater just makes me roll my eyes and think of Freedom Fries, but there is one car I see regularly that's had me baffled for several months. On his front, rear, and side windows are no less than twelve decals of varying sizes, all featuring the same cryptic symbol. It must be pretty significant to warrant that sort of enthusiastic and repetitive displayage, but apparently I am clueless and sheltered and I have no idea what it means.
Ordinarily I'd turn to my friend Google or Wikipedia for the answer, but until someone manages to invent a mind-reading or picture-scanning version of those tools, I have to ask you, Internets, for some help.
So. Anyone? Who can clue me in? The dude's emblem looks something like this (minus the pink border that I can't figure out how to get my blog template to ignore):
I've basically ruled out toilet seat and Eskimo head on the grounds that, while the symbol bears some resemblance to either, both are ridiculous and implausible explanations. Beyond that, I got nothin'. How about you?
