stupid ovals

I strongly dislike those oval bumper stickers with obscure abbreviations. I mean, who decided AQ stands for Antarctica? Certainly nobody sane. I've just stopped trying to figure out what they mean and assume that they're making a reference I don't get.

So this morning, my roomie and I saw one of these stickers with a VT on it. Both of us had the same first association--"visiting teaching." Churchy. But we knew it probably didn't stand for that, so we kept guessing. My favorite two were Vernicious Tripe and Vernacular Tentacles, the latter being very fun to say. I was sad when it was pointed out that VT stands for Vermont. I like Vermont and all, but it was very anticlimactic.
