Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks
Monday, October 24, 2005 On my way home from work the other night, I was behind a car with a bumper sticker I couldn't read all of. All I knew for sure was that the last line consisted of these words in big red letters: "SIN CONDUCTOR."
I was like, "Wow, a Sin Conductor? That guy's a Sin Conductor? That's so cool! I want to be a Sin Conductor!" I had to know more. But I couldn't make sense of it from a safe follwing distance. At the next red light, I pulled in close, looking for more clues, or at least a phone number.
Alas, the sticker wasn't in English. Those of you who live and drive in cities with a larger Spanish-speaking populations than the one boasted by Minneapolis have already figured out that I was looking at the Spanish version of one of those bumper stickers that say, "In case of Rapture, this car will be without a driver." Which means that stickers with the Spanish version of "In case of Rapture, can I have your car?" can't be far behind.
At first I was disappointed that there's no such thing as a Sin Conductor, at least not in English. But then I realized that that means I can invent my own meaning and become a self-styled Sin Conductor with a minimum of effort! Go me!
Oh, wait. I'm married and have a kid. That won't work. Never mind. Anyone else, feel free. posted by M. Giant 4:50 PM 5 comments
One of my husband's friends has personalized license plates that say "SINNER" which I've always felt was a pretty bold move for someone living in the Bible Belt.
And would the sin conductor use a baton, or just his/her hands? Would he/she be made of metal? Would he/she take tickets on the train? So many possibilities for you...
Chao beat me to it. I was going to say "I call out the stops on the Sin Train," but since TeslaGrrl reads this I should probably stick with "sin passes right through me, without affecting my own molecular composition in any way."
Dudes. I'm working on it.
Is spamming someones comments conducting a sin of some sort..?
