I do what I'm TOAD!!!
En route from Baton Rouge (went back for the Viking birthday; wine, cheese, brunch the next morning = a blasty) to Lafayette, I saw a car exiting I-10 with this sentence (post title) in sticker letters on the back of their trunk. I think I saw a brief flash of a frog sticker too.
"I do what I'm TOAD!!!" Notice how "toad" is entirely capitalized, I guess to draw your attention to the fact that this sentence doesn't say what you might assume it would say. Not one, not two, but three exclamation points. You gotta love pointless punctuation.
Now I would get this sentence were I under the impression that this person were penning some sort of dialect. However, being that it has something to do with frogs, the meaning is all-together lost on me.
Oh that and the fact that it was ON THE BACK OF THEIR CAR. Seriously don't get it. It's like personalized license plates. I just cannot imagine, like, having something pop into my head and thinking: oh my god! that would be so perfect for my license plate. Or this one word is what I want fellow motorists to know about me as I pass them on the interstate. And these plates are usually so asanine and ridiculous like: TENSNE1, DRSWIFE or CRKWHRE.
Do any of you have personalized license plates or put lots of stickers and shit on your car? If so, for why? Seriously, I'm so baffled but want to understand.
Oh, by the way: summer school starts tomorrow! wish me luck.
