Car owners will often put stickers on their back window that represent what their family looks like or what their children do for activities. One car's bumper sticker features a couple with three children, while the other bumper sticker depicts a couple with large sacks of money. The humor comes from the opportunity cost implied in this - that not having children allows you to become rich.
- [Two cars are parked next to each other. The car on the left is an urban SUV and has stickers on the rear window representing a family. From left to right there is an adult male, adult female, female youth, male youth, and young child. The car on the right is a sporty hatch back, it has similar stickers on the rear window, with an adult male and adult female. Instead of the youth and child stickers there is instead a large pile of money.]

So I can get sacks of money if I sell my children? I need to find a girl who's willing to have loads of kids, fast. Davidy²²[talk] 09:06, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Does anyone know what the title text is referencing?18.104.22.168 19:26, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
- I don't know, so I did mark it as incomplete. Furthermore I'm sure there must be a pun on that adult pictures, it's much more common to show only the children (often with names) on it.--Dgbrt (talk) 20:01, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
- I checked the forum, and could not find a convincing argument either. The theory that in my eyes came closest to an explanation was the attractive power a small kitten can have on little girls. --Chtz (talk) 15:57, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
I actually saw a car that had a guy and bags of money! At the time it made me mad, but I guess he's getting the last laugh! Theo (talk) 20:53, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
This comic explain is still incomplete, the title text is still missing. And what the hell the licence plate of the first car (ICE-IE3) does mean?--Dgbrt (talk) 21:43, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Now, who can identify the cars? --Qwach (talk) 00:30, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
- Subaru Outback (https://google.com/search?q=subaru+outback+rear&tbm=isch) and Honda Fit (http://www.carid.com/images/t5i/spoilers/abs231a-honda-fit.jpg). Perhaps the article text about the Ford should be revised accordingly too. 22.214.171.124 07:04, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
The licence plate from the left car (ICE-L13)—that car belongs to a real family—is a reference to the Michelin tire Michelin X-Ice Xi3, which is claimed to be more safe than other tires are. -- Dgbrt (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I think this comic implies that with kids, one has to buy a more expensive car to accommodate everyone. This is one of the things that leaves childless couples with more money. Heze (talk) 05:38, 14 April 2016 (UTC)Heze
I saw a car at my local Sam's Club with those exact decals! Can someone tell me where they sell them? I want one. --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 11:39, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
