Religion: Sarcasm

Back in the 1970s there was a Born Again revival that fanned out thru our area.  I used to think it was national but in hindsight I’m not sure.  The Ohio of my youth had several televangelists of note—Ernest Angley, anyone?—and I’m thinking it could be traced to one of them.  One of the ways the revival manifested itself was in a rash of bright yellow bumperstickers which proclaimed, in bold black letters, “I Found It!”  Needless to say the problematic neighbors across the street had “I Found It!” bumperstickers on both of their cars.

Sans fanfare, my Dad had a bumpersticker made for his car, a bright yellow bumper sticker that said, in the exact same bold black font, “But Do You Live It?”
