….here’s something I whipped up quickly using Pages, inspired by Reason’s Hit and Run fundraiser, and because I can’t actually find that bumper sticker elsewhere.

Bake Sale bumper sticker (PDF).

I haven’t tried printing these yet, but Office Depot apparently sells bumper sticker stock. I may give that a try in the next day or two. If anyone does try it, please leave feedback in the comments.

Edited to add: Here’s a Word version that I’m actually somewhat happy with.

It will be a great day when the Pentagon has enough money to bomb public schools having bake sales.” (Word .doc)

The Office Depot inkjet bumper sticker stock may have been a waste of money; the ink came out more grey than black, and smeared all over the place when I handled it (even after about 15 minutes of drying time). I printed another sheet and am going to let that dry overnight; we’ll see what happens.

Extreme geek humor.

Inspired by chapter 6 of Learning Python (the 3rd edition, alas).
