    How to cover up a bumper sticker?

    I'm heading over for the NIU/ISU game and my friend is driving us over from CR. He's an Iowa student (*gag*) and has a hideous bumper sticker on the back of his car that says "Great to be a Hawkeye". Advice on covering that **** up? I'm thinking about putting an ISU schedule magnet over the top of it, like you'd put on your fridge, but I'm not sure if that'll work.

    I would take it off and/or vandalize it to say "It sucks to be a hawkeye" or something, but that's not really my style. I hate when people come to ISU games wearing Iowa **** and this is comparable, so I don't want to be in that boat.

    Thanks in advance.

    Set the car on fire to put it out of its misery then take a rental car.

    My hawk buddies HATE it when they ride in my car with my ISU stuff all over it. (It's my avatar picture) But my car is usually the nicest in my friend group and has a system so they usually have to suffer!

    I don't know what to tell you though, either drive yourself or find a different ride!

    Colored Duct Tape. Or white Duct tape over the ' 's great ' and write in sucks. You get the same effect without having to permanently remove the sticker.

    I'd go for this. A little good humor and he can remove it later with no ill-will. I'd be ****** if I had something like that and someone defaced it.

    That said it always makes me nervous to take my ISU plates to Iowa City. But so far so good.

    get an Illini sticker and cover it your first stop over the river.That way you can enjoy his outrage without him directing it at you. After you get back tell him what you did and enjoy it all over again.

    Re: How to cover up a bumper sticker?

    1) Remove the bumper before leaving CR
    2) Since it sounds like you might have a POS car anyway (since it's worth riding with him and his Hawk bumper sticker), crash your already POS into his bumper right about where that sticker is...BAM! oops, sorry dude, it was an accident. I didn't mean to "F" up your cool bumper sticker. Can we go to the game now?..file a claim and he gets his car fixed after the game.

    I love how people are recommending vandalism, when THIS IS THE GUY WHO'S GIVING YOU A RIDE.

    My solution, if it bothers you so much, find a different way to get to the game.

    ...add the other traditional bumper-sticker that says,
    "My other car is a piece of **** too."
