Not At All Political, Really

I'm fascinated by objects that contradict themselves -- it's like having a living Zen koan out in the world. The most recent one I saw, about a week ago, was the words "No War for Oil!" prominently displayed on a bumper sticker -- attached, as is usual, to a car.

I guess this is the geopolitical equivalent of those medical tags that say "No Heroic Measures;" in both cases, the person is saying "You know, I'd prefer to keep going on the way I am, but, really, don't go to any trouble on my account."
