Bringing people together one bumper sticker at a time

If you follow us on Twitter, you’ll see our occasional conversations with noted speechwriter and word artist Charlie Fern . We connected with Charlie after she spied a license plate which read  T TTYBNGO. Recently, she encountered the same vehicle and here’s her story:

You might recall that our very first conversation was about a picture I posted on Twitter of the license plate below.

Titty Bingo license plate I didn’t meet him years ago; only took a photo of his Titty Bingo license plate (he was stopped in front of me at a light).

Years later, I received your second round of bumper stickers in the mail and days later, here I am, driving down that very same road and lo and behold, what do I see directly in front of me at a stoplight, but the very reason why we’ve been able to have so much fun with our social media banter all this time.

By some twist of fate, I happened to pull up behind him at a light again yesterday, saw his plate and waved your sticker at him.

I just so happened to have two bumper stickers on me, so I held one up in my window at the stoplight, and Randy Metzger, here below, happened to catch sight of it in his rear-view mirror.

He pulled over, said howdy, told bingo tales and voila.

2 years after that 1st drive-by, the bitching Camaro with Titty Bingo plates now has a matching bumper sticker. How about that?

Nice to finally meet you, Randy Metzger!

Here’s Randy Metzger’s response to Charlie:

Charlie,
Thank you! It’s a small world for sure.. Especially in Austin! And gladly share the pics you took! I don’t think anybody is looking for me ( just kidding)! I get a lot of thumbs up and waves at stop lights. Kind of like today! I’m a big lover of music!! Growing up in Houston during the 60’s helped foster the music bug..Janis Joplin, Moving Sidewalks, Kinky Friedman, and on and on!
Thanks for the smile!!
Randy

Great story, isn’t it? We love bringing the world together one bumper sticker at a time.

We want to thank Charlie and Randy for making the story possible.

Titty Bingo Bumper Sticker In Death Proof

Death Proof, the 2007 Quentin Tarantino Grindhouse film, partially filmed in Austin, featured the well known Titty Bingo bumper sticker.

Say you saw the movie, but didn’t see the sticker? Look for the sticker in the Tarantino bar scene (filmed on location at the Texas Chili Parlor). When Stunt Man Mike looks down the bar toward the two twenty somethings, you’ll see half the sticker…the Titty half. During subsequent shots looking down the bar, you’ll see the sticker multiple times.
