What’s Wrong With This Picture? I-35 On Ramp

Car with SIG sticker (courtesy thetruthaboutguns.com)

I Smart Phoned this picture — hands free of course — while stuck in traffic on my way to The Range At Austin. Something wasn’t right. What?


  1. avatar jwm says:

    SIG sticker? Not really gray man.

  2. avatar Em says:

    Groot wouldn’t fit in a Ford Escape.

    1. avatar Ing says:

      I’m pretty sure that’s Baby Groot. He definitely would fit. I just hope he’s not driving…

  3. avatar Button Gwinnett says:

    You doxxed somebody via license plate #?

    1. avatar Drew says:

      are you dumb or just pretending to be?

      1. avatar Texheim says:

        He did possibly dox someone by showing the license plate. That info can be looked up depending on your connections; I have those sorts of connections.

        1. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

          that does not happen for free. i have a list you should think twice about helping me with.

        2. avatar jerk crews says:

          You should probably cover yours up, from here on out, so no one can see it

    “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” – Henry Ford

    It’s not black?

  5. avatar Hank says:

    Driving a Mexican made Ford.

  6. avatar TexTed says:

    Obviously the SIG sticker — anyone with any self respect would have ripped that off and burned it after the P320 fiasco.

    1. avatar Bob999 says:

      Glock guy?

  7. avatar Michael says:

    Steal my gun sticker?

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      Yes, and what ever else of value that might be in your car!

  8. avatar Astigmatism says:

    You picked the wrong time of day to go to the range?
    How long have you lived in Austin? Sometimes it’s faster to take South Congress to Slaughter.

  9. avatar Jay says:

    Driver reading a newspaper?

  10. avatar Paul C says:

    Are Texas plates good forever? I don’t see an expiration date.

    1. avatar Steve in TX says:

      Registration sticker goes on the windshield with plate number printed on it. Plates are replaced every 7 years.

    2. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

      We have a two-in-one registration/inspection sticker now which goes on the front window. They started that “Two steps, one sticker” system last year.

  11. avatar TwoJohnsonsAreBetterThanOne says:

    The car can’t be safely dropped?

    1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

      Actually with cars, I think the airbag is supposed to go bang when it’s dropped.

    2. avatar billy-bob says:

      Everything can be air dropped… at least once.

  12. avatar C.S. says:

    I’m guessing that’s your vehicle…

  13. avatar BLAMMO says:

    I assume you’re not referring to the SIG decal but I don’t know what the other one is. Somehow incongruent with the SIG sticker? Someone with headphones?

  14. avatar Hank says:

    There’s no one driving the car!!!!!! 😱

  15. avatar Morelia1776 says:

    Brake lights are on. It’s an expressway, hit the damn go pedal

    1. avatar 4808 N says:

      Not in Austin, Brother…..

  16. avatar Adam Warlock says:

    It looks like someone in a bear costume driving.

  17. avatar Rimfire says:

    It’s not a pick’m up truck?? Texas Cadillac, lol…

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      Dude my dad’s F150 has heated and air conditioned, massaging seats, radar cruise control, 360 cameras, and every other electronic ridiculous gizmo you can imagine. They really are Cadillacs haha

      1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

        Which is why I drive an XL.

      2. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Just an F-150?

        Minimum required equipment for*Real* Texans is an F-350 diesel dually…

        *snicker* 😉

        1. avatar Gunr says:

          A few years ago on a radio program called “Car talk” A dude called in and said he had just bought a vehicle as you described, and that he just loved it!
          The talk show guy replied: “What part of it do you love the most, the noise, or the fumes”?

        2. avatar John says:

          Preferably a 97 with the 7.3 Powerstroke, 4:10 rear end and in crew cab. :o)

        3. avatar Calvin says:

          The end of an era :sniff:

    2. avatar paul says:

      Actually, Texas Cadillac is a Chevy Suburban, not a pick up.

  18. avatar P-Dog says:

    If it’s because you’re advertising that you are a gun owner, cut the dude a little slack. There are plenty of people who advertise that on their cars or clothing, nothing wrong with that unless you are one of the anal types who think one needs to be discreet about that 100% of the time

  19. avatar Gordon in MO says:

    Some things are worth being anal about. OPSEC

    1. avatar Dewey says:

      Some things are worth publicly supporting.

  20. avatar Specialist38 says:

    290 should be on the Sig side.

  21. avatar greymas says:

    Gun sticker and tinted windows? I would venture to guess that raises the hackles on an officer pulling over car who can’t see inside when approaching.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      Lots of people down south have tinted windows, what with the sun\heat and all.

      Lots of people down south also own and love guns.

      I’m not saying no cop would have that thought but I doubt it’s particularly wide-spread.

  22. avatar Fred says:

    he is trying to go both north and south on I35?

    1. avatar Ironhead says:

      You think the driver goes both ways?????

      1. avatar Fred says:

        the car is aiming for the center of the sign – not clearly in the lane going north, or the lane going south.

  23. avatar BC says:

    Baby Groot goes to Waco and SIG goes to San Antonio?

    Did you ever tell us what was wrong with the holster commercial? Or are you just playing Kafka?

    1. avatar Van V Elting says:

      I think you almost got there. SIG is going south is the thing.

  24. avatar 2004done says:

    I GOT IT! There seems to be snow on the range, and al gore is apoplectic in his jet

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      I was going to say that the sun is in the sky and there is no snow … and that would only be strange if you lived in a northern state!

  25. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    He spent all his money on Sigs and now the best car he can afford is a FORD.

    Sux 2B him.

    Found on road, dead.

    1. avatar ironicatbest says:

      Fuckin Old Rebuilt Dodge, kinda my favorite, I gets to gettem both. Chev er in the ditch n let a Ford go by

      1. avatar Rattlerjake says:

        Fails On Race Day!

    2. avatar Gunr says:

      Fix or repair daily.
      Fix it again Tony.
      Iv’e got one for Pontiac too, but it’s a bit racist.

      1. avatar Rincoln says:

        Always laughed at the Pontiac one, but FORD is definitely First On Race Day

      2. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

        my sister always substitutes “nitwit”.
        years ago when i plowed my 860gts into a median a co- worker said that ducati stood for “drive up curb and total it.”

        1. avatar hillbillyjew says:

          Haha. Never heard the Ducati one. Did we ever get answer? Or is this just a 2A supporter team building exercise?

  26. avatar ATFAgentBob says:

    I left my ex wife over sh!t like this (among other things) and I won’t hesitate to divorce y’all over it as well! Just friggin tell us already damn we can’t tell you ever so slightly changed the tint of your neon blue hair dye nor can we tell you had 1/84 of an inch trimmed off you friggin cowlick! The only time we notice your damn shoes or toe nails is when you put em behind your ears so just freakin tell us what it is so we can say ” oh that looks nice dear.” Even though we have no effing clue what the hell you’re talking about!!!! Since when is it a friggin crime to wash colors in hot water!?!?

    Uhhh oops sorry guys flashback.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:


    2. avatar ironicatbest says:

      That was great,. :;-D

    3. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      Wife: Notice anything different?
      Me: Nope.

      Wife: How do you like my new hair style?
      Me: If you really cared about my opinion, you would have asked it before you changed your hair.

      1. avatar GS650G says:

        Or : you assume I like your hair style and we both know what assume means.

      2. avatar Gunr says:

        Did you hear about the guy that took his wife to the zoo, and when they passed the gorilla cage, the ape reached out and grabbed the slim woman and pulled her through the bars, and into the cage.
        He tore her cloths off and was forcing himself on her.
        She screamed and yelled at her husband: “What do I do, he wants to have sex with me!”
        The husband said: do the same thing you do at home! Tell him you have a headache!”

    7. avatar Jb says:

      Now that’s funny!

    8. avatar JoeVK says:

      My wife got her long hair cut shorter, but it was still long enough that it curled under on her shoulders, so from the front it looked EXACTLY THE SAME. She asked if I noticed anything different, so I said no. She got mad and turned and walked away, which is when I noticed. I said “oh, you cut your hair”. Unfortunately, I didn’t include the words “it looks incredible and makes you a stunning goddess”, so it made her even angrier.

  27. avatar IdahoBoy says:

    Seeing as how we just went through the whole “Would you carry a gun in your car?” bizness, I’m guessing that Mr. Farago thinks displaying a gun sticker on ones car is a good way to get ones windows busted out and ones weapon removed from the vehicle.

    Or not. Maybe he’s just fucking with us.

  28. avatar Ian says:

    The gas cap is on the wrong side of that vehicle. I hate that.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      kinda useful for highway fuelups so not everyone is on the same side

      long hoses work too

      she said.

  29. avatar Removed_californian says:

    His puppers are gonna get Waco’d.

  30. avatar Todd says:

    Some dumbass reason known only to you trying to be clever?

  31. avatar Daren says:

    I’m thinking it has something to do with SIG and Waco.

  32. avatar Daren says:

    I’m thinking it has something to do with SIGs going to Waco.

  33. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    It’s an “escape”
    Neither Waco or San Antonio is an escape.

    1. avatar Sal Chichon says:


    2. avatar 4808 N says:

      Waco, God in Heaven no. SA, yes if you appreciate good Mexican food.

  34. This s*** does nothing but frustrate me. Playing these stupid games will cost you subscriptions…

  35. avatar ironicatbest says:

    The traffic over the bridge I live under?

  36. avatar ironicatbest says:

    Govt. Plate?….. how do you drive a polock crazy…..I ll tell you tomorrow.

  37. avatar Gralnok says:

    I’m confuzzled.

  38. avatar Gralnok says:

    I got it!

    You’re on your way to the range, a home away from home. However, it’s cloudy! As we all know, when you’re home on the range, the skies are not cloudy all day!

  39. avatar How_Terrible says:

    Do you guys ever think that RF just feeling like trolling all of us once in a while?

  40. avatar Engy says:

    The driver hasn’t removed the sun shade from the windshield. If you look closely you can see the rear view mirror, but nothing else out the windshield.

    Why do I want to come to Texas in April? We have enough idiot drivers here in Washington state.

    1. avatar Captain Insano says:

      I’ll go with this one. It looks like two disks overlapping.

  41. avatar TX_Lawyer says:

    It’s off center. The fact that you took it. The fact that you posted it. That’s in order from least to most “wrong.”

  42. avatar AKM Sarah says:

    Good lord just tell us what it is! This is frustrating!

  43. avatar NutHouseCop says:

    The “Groot” (I am not familiar) character has on hearing protection, but no eye protection?

  44. avatar Hank says:

    So let me guess you’re against open carry? (Yep, I started it.)

  45. avatar Bigus Dickus says:

    What’s wrong with this picture? You live in Austin is wrong, the liberal mecca of Texas.

    1. avatar Pvw20 says:

      ……steers and queers. You ain’t got no horns boy!

  46. avatar rogerthat says:

    One of the LEDs in the center brake light is too bright….. Can we stop this now?

  47. avatar Extractor says:

    That’s my sisters car so think carefully about what you say next.

    1. avatar Aaron says:

      That explains the head bobbing up and down…

  48. avatar Johannes Paulsen says:

    Professor Fordney was hunting in the Rockies when informed of a tragedy at one of the camps. Thinking he might be of some help, he went over, and, after introducing himself, Butler, the victim’s companion, told him of the accident.

    ‘When Marshall hadn’t returned to camp at nine o’clock last night, I was a bit worried because he didn’t know these mountains. There wasn’t a star out and it was dark and moonless, so I decided to look around for him. We’re five miles from anyone, you know.

    ‘Putting more wood on the fire, I set out. After searching for an hour, I was coming up the slope of a ravine when I saw a pair of eyes shining out at me in the dark.

    ‘Calling twice, and getting no answer, I fired, thinking it was a mountain lion. Imagine my horror when I reached the spot, struck a match, and saw I had nearly blown the head off Marshall. A terrible experience!

    ‘I carried his body back to camp and then walked to the nearest house to report the accident.’

    ‘How far from camp did you find Marshall?’ asked Fordney.

    ‘About a quarter of a mile.’

    ‘I see your right hand is bandaged. How do you manage to shoot with it?’

    ‘Oh, I use either hand.’

    ‘Mind if I look at the gun?’

    ‘Not at all,’ said Butler, handing it over.

    ‘H’m, European make, I see. Had it long?’

    ‘No, it’s rather new.’

    ‘Why did you deliberately murder Marshall?’ demanded Fordney abruptly … ‘for that’s what you did.’


    1. avatar James69 says:

      Human eyes don’t reflect light. Good one.

      1. avatar Johannes Paulsen says:

        Human eyes *do* reflect light, as anyone whose dealt with red-eye on a photograph taken with a flash can attest!

        On the right path, though.

    2. avatar Blakeg says:

      If it was starless and moonless, how would there be any light to reflect into anything’s eyes? (Assuming an hour away from the fire wasn’t just the guy walking in circles!)

      1. avatar Johannes Paulsen says:

          And in case I’m not the only one stuck at home, watching the snow accumulate through the window while drinking a pot of coffee this morning…. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50603

        2. avatar Rokurota says:

          As fun as these stories are (they formed the foundation of every “mini mystery” in our middle school newspaper), a witness’s lie is in no way a confession to murder. Just sayin’.

    3. avatar paul says:

      He couldn’t have struck a match if his hand were so bandaged that he had to use the other to shoot.

    4. avatar Rokurota says:

      Ignored the four rules. QED.

    5. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      If you’ve ever shined animals with a flashlight, or photographed them at night with flash, you know that their eyes will look a sort of greenish yellow, while human eyes look red.

      What do I win?

    6. avatar Rattlerjake says:

      It was a dark, starless, moonless night. The nearest habitation was five miles. The eyes of no animal ever shine in the dark unless there is a light by which they can be reflected, and a man’s eyes never shine under any circumstances.

      Therefore, Butler could not possibly have seen any eyes shining at him in the dark. It was clearly murder.

      1. avatar TX_Lawyer says:

        It could have been manslaughter. Or self defense. Maybe the guy tried to kill Butler, and Butler doesn’t want to tarnish his memory. Marshall may have even killed himself, but Butler knows that the life insurance won’t pay out unless his death was an accident.

        We can never know the truth of almost anything with absolute certainty.

  49. avatar Aaron says:

    What’s wrong with this picture? What’s wrong is you wasting our time by posting that picture.

  50. avatar Grumpy says:

    The only thing I can tell is the car is stopped dead and there is a line of cars in front, also stopped dead. Basically an expressway parking lot with the picture framed under a sign. Being from LA originally, nothing new here. All we need are some pan handlers walking by the cars with a bottle of dirty water tying to clean windshields or cardboard signs asking for beer money.

    1. avatar James69 says:

      And if you go south of LA you can buy chicklets while you wait.

  51. avatar craig k says:

    Waco equals Escape-San Antonio equals needing a Sig.

    290 doesn’t go South?


  53. avatar Lucas D. says:

    So the guy belongs to the Society for Indoor Gardening. Big whoop.

  54. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

    It is kinda of a bad idea for gun owners to be making nests in Austin. It isn’t going to get any less progressive and it ain’t going to stay the same either. SmugglyPuffs are going to kick your asses.

  55. avatar Spartan357 says:

    1. Not a chance you did this ‘hands free’, 2. You get paid for this? Phoning it in like all the other bs sites now?

  56. avatar Stereodude says:

    I got it! You were tailgating and taking a picture while driving.

  57. avatar MyName says:

    The principle problem I see is that Waco and San Antonio are my only options.

  58. avatar Retrocon says:

    Treehugger in a hybrid in Austin, with a Sig sticker.

    I am moot!

  59. avatar Rickey says:

    Right mirror

  60. avatar Joel IV says:

    Go ahead and take 290 over to Red’s Indoor Range.

  61. avatar anthony says:

    It looks as if there may be a gun case sticking up in the back seat.

  62. He has a round chambered and doesn’t plan to use his gun?
    Really, this is stupid.

  63. avatar Olmstead says:

    Police badge on license plate

  64. avatar Jim Macklin says:

    Rear window tint too dark.If a cop can’t see and count the number of occupants they will stop the car.and look for drugs, illegals. Why give the cops an excuse?

  65. avatar Martu says:

    Stickers and the arrows point to directions of interest.

  66. avatar NateInPA says:

    No turn signal.

  69. avatar Gman says:

    Waco, where a bunch of young Groots were preventing from Escape and killed by jackboots from Austin using SIGs?

  70. avatar CDCarpeti says:

    What’s wrong?

  71. avatar CDCarpeti says:

    What’s wrong?

  72. avatar G V says:

    Stolen? – The license plate does NOT have Year/Month stickers on it. Is it a front plate from another car?

    1. avatar Joel IV says:

      Don’t need them in Texas any longer. It is handled by your windshield sticker.

  73. avatar K42inSEA says:

    What’s not right? Left?

  74. avatar Van V Elting says:

    I replied to someone that got it close.

    I think the Answer is “Sig is going south”

  75. avatar Darkstar says:

    If you are in Austin wouldn’t the sign pointing for Waco be showing South and not North?

  76. avatar billy-bob says:

    Aren’t coexist stickers required for vehicles in Austin?

  77. avatar dusty says:

    Waco isn’t right, it’s left.

  78. avatar JTPhilly says:

    So what the hell is the answer?

  79. avatar emfourty gasmask says:

    >Sig going south

    That’s not wrong at all

  80. avatar Sam n Ohio says:

    I’ll go with the driver needs to pick a freaking lane. Are they going to San Antonio or Waco? It’s not that hard a decision, but who knows when you’re taking up half of each lane.

  81. avatar BLAMMO says:

    What’s wrong is this is some sick, twisted variation on the “Weekend Photo Caption Contest” but nobody gets to win anything.

    Will we at least have an answer by Sunday Night? It better be good.

  88. avatar IS THAT FROWNED UPON says:

    And the officer said “I need a 10-27 on a Texas GWV 1027”

    Control responds, “roger, Acknowledged that you need a 10-27 on a Texas GWV and repeat the last 4 positions?” Or what is the name of the Texas GWV?

    Officer: A 10-27 on a Texas GWV 1027
    Control: Who’s on first???

  89. avatar Rattlerjake says:

    I’m curious, does 290 only go EAST?

  90. avatar Captain Insano says:

    There should only be two letters on the license plate?

  91. avatar Charlie says:

    The main thing I see wrong with the picture is you didn’t fuzz out the license plate. That’s kinda creepy actually.

  92. avatar Captain Insano says:

    So answer it already! It’s been five days already.

  93. avatar Captain Insano says:

    Seventeen days and counting…………….

  94. avatar Captain Insano says:

    Over two months and counting……………
