Cars windows have been pronouncing gleeful occasions, such as marriage, since there were car windows. Whether with tempera paints, shoe polish, or (plant-based) soap, there is a sea of “announcement” space as close as your drive-way, carport or garage.
What is there to announce? In a word, blackfish. If you have missed the news stories on CNN, HLN, CBS, ABC, etc., surrounding Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s, Oscar-buzz film Blackfish, and the controversy of SeaWorld’s maintaining a “collection” of highly intelligent orcas in morbidly small tanks, you are likely to remain unable to miss it for long. In a nutshell, activists have been saying for many years that orcas, dolphins and whales are not suited to captivity. But along came a documentary to explore why an orca would kill one of his trainers, would “bite the hand that feeds” him, and the rest is history.
As one who isn’t particularly fond of bumper stickers, I really like the idea of car paint: it’s simple, washable and easily changeable.
Speaking of washable, off I go to the car wash and the crafts store. While my first attempt got honks and thumbs-ups as I drove the 550 miles on I-75 from Florida, I think I’ll spiff up old paint for her new job as part of an ocean of cars with a mission.
Watch #Blackfish. Listen for the truth. Don’t ever go to a marine park or aquarium that uses these beings for whatever purpose is their flavor-of-the-month. Join the Blackfish movement.
And if you are so-moved, paint that car!!! ♥
