Family Affair

Stick figure family auto decals have been a little pet peeve of mine since the trend began. But like all things that have mass popularity but annoy a small few, satirical versions have been cropping up everywhere and some of them are pretty darn hilarious. You can either drive around any given suburb and see for yourself, or take a look at a few of the funniest ones here:

This is exactly what I think in my mind when I pull up behind every SUV emblazoned with a set of these conventional stick figure family decals.

You have to appreciate a single cat-loving woman with a sense of humor.

This is my personal favorite, although I'd find one featuring the wife with the chainsaw to be even funnier.

Perfect for the recently divorced man.

Enough said.

The real American family: Gun Family Sticker available from Desert Dog Decals.

On a more serious note, I recently saw this single parent version for the first time and while that would be the last thing I would ever publicize on my car, I still appreciated it.
