Quote of the Day: 9

-- Window sticker on truck I had to follow for a mile today on the way into work.

I don't know if, technically, this is a quote. But I had to stare at it for a mile. It was one of those clear window stickers, in the back of a pickup truck. It had a drawing of a buck chasing a doe above the tagline, and because my cell phone camera couldn't capture the sticker, I have created an artist's rendering of the sticker, which I then took a picture of:Startlingly lifelike, isn't it?

The thing is, the more I looked at it, the more I didn't get it. Is it deer porn? Is it a hunter's inside joke that hunters, rather than tramping through the grouse marshes, are actually out getting women? Or that they're more interested in women than hunting? Or that this particular hunter was more interested in bagging a doe (so to speak?) than a buck? What's up with the "N"? Shouldn't it be Chasin' Tail? Or would that be too obvious, when the artist was clearly going for subtlety here. Or did the creator actually mean to talk about two different things, "Chase" and "Tail?" Maybe those are the two things that hunters like?

I just kept rolling those questions around in my mind, all the way to work. Rolling them around, and sketching things on my notepad.

I make the most of my commute.
