Do you have to take these gas prices in silence? I don’t think so.
All you have to do is download this pdf, print out a few copies and put them, along with a roll of Scotch tape, into your car.
The next time you fill up, instead of watching in horror as the dollar amount on the pump races by as the gallons trickle into your tank, afix one of these to the pump.
Take care to not cover vital information regarding safety, etc. and don’t cover any advertising.
Then drive off with a smile on your face, knowing that when the next person drives up to the pump they’ll either agree with you and be pleased to know that they’re not alone, be better informed by your message or if it’s an Obamabot, you’ll have thrown water on their circuitry and ruined their day.
Here’s the pdf you can download for a better quality image for printing purposes…
Update: A certain gas station that caters to I-95 traffic in Ashland, VA has been ‘blogged’. I saw a man at the next pump read it thoroughly before filling his tank. He did NOT fly into a rage and tear it down.
Update2: The response to this post has been overwhelming! Welcome Instapundit, Ace of Spades, Weasel Zippers, AR15 and all.
A commenter at Ace recommends that the blue painters tape be used as it is easily removable without leaving traces of Scotch tape. That’s probably a good idea, although I’m not willing to lose the Republic over Scotch tape residue. That’s just me.
As for the artwork, such as it is, feel free to share it with whomever. We need to pin the gas price tail on this Donkey.
Update3: Someone suggested that we create a Spanish version of this. That’s a great idea!
If anyone can do the translation I’d be happy to do it. But no wise guys, please. I want you to know that I know several Spanish words, including cerveza, biblioteca, putana, pendejo and chimichanga, so I’ll catch you if you’re trying to scam me.
Here’s a great rework of the original from botnet.
