You know the type: oval stickers with initials on a plain background that mark your pride in something. Our friends Andy and Lynn have a green oval with "VT" on their car, symbolizing their annual vacation to Vermont. Sometimes you see "UK" for Anglophiles, or "FR" for Francophiles.
Here's one that I've noticed on several cars lately:
At this scale, it's clear that these stickers reflect pride in living in "Lower Slower Delaware." But when you see this from a car-length back, at 25-, 35-, 45-miles per hour or faster, there's a certain level of double-take involved.
"LSD? Isn't that illegal?"
"Watch the road, honey. Never mind the stickers."
I had heard in the past about "Slower Lower Delaware." I think there were tee-shirts to that effect.
Why the change of word order? Is there a copyright issue? Or is someone combining pride in place, the profit motive, and a small amount of subversive hinting?
Update: Thanks to chrisubus who Googled-up a link with more background. I thought I had pretty good Google-skills, but I didn't find this. Looks like it was a copyright issue.
Here, from the linked discussion, is a phrase you don't hear/see around here very often:
My company owns the trademark on "LSD"...
