Need help with designing a bumper sticker

Ok, so I have this issue where people who driver full sized trucks just irritate me; they enrage my very soul. I'm not talking about people with the s-10's or rangers, or even people who use there trucks as work trucks even half time, I'm talking about the guys who own the full-sized trucks that take ten gallons per miles, the guys who think these trucks give them the right to own the road, point their lights straight out, ride with highbeams all the time, tailgate, never allow others to merge, don't pay attention, and has never even used his truck to haul a mattress; The jerk who owns a big truck just cause he wants to use it to affirm his masculinity.

I'm looking for people with similar feelings of rage and loathing, hopefully someone who is better at design and composition. I came up with a basic idea to display my contempt, the humble bumper sticker. Unfortunately, I'm just not that good at design. If anyone has any input or suggestions, I would appreciate it.

I think it's really just there attitude. I know in the back of my mind that current SUV and trucks are probably just as efficient as my car (sans driving habits), but they just drive like douche bags as well. F-Series and Silverado drivers are bad, but dodge drivers are the absolute worst.

around here there is a nice mix of all makes of trucks, lifted ridiculously high, with obnoxiously large chrome rims. I got a bumper sticker and placed it right below my third brake light (so it's high enough for them to see) and it says "Nice truck you have there, and my deepest sympathies to your small weiner". I think that the wording confuses them more than anything else, but I have had quite a few people ask me where I got it. But searching for it now brings up nothing.

It's funny that this subject came up just now!

Yesterday afternoon in full sunlight; I was traveling in the slow lane of a 4lane road when I couldn't help but notice the bright lights behind me!

In a full sized PU this guy had on his headlights bright, plus 2 big round ones in center grille area, PLUS 4 or 5 BIG round ones all on/on his rollbar!!!!

I just ignored him as he passed. Here in WA., they don't even want a motorcycle to have more than 2 though I've seen many Harley triples.

It just kind of leaves you shaking your head!

Might be too subtle for that crowd:

I think the best way would be to outwit them yet show that they are a jackass.

1. Stop jack'n on my ass and PASS
2. My big car stops faster than your little truck
3. Trucks are for TOOLS

I take donations. If you get rich off me, please be fair.
