I've been seeing these stickers on various cars around town. What's up?

Oh it's part of the county wide "Confuse Barry" Campaign.

It's a sticker to raise funds for the witches' coven in Runaway Bay.

I'm not sure if it is the new media bits you have on the webpage now, but your site sure does take a lot longer to open now days! sheeeeeesh! (sorry, that's off this topic, but wanted to get my disgruntlement in) :-)

Anon 4:13, you just suck at the internet, that's all.

It's the Wise County new 'Who Cares' campaign. Obviously, nobody does.

I heard some big rich person from Decatur had them made up because that Formula One track was going in around Slidell and wanted to make the Europeans feel welcome when they came to town for the races.

Just moved in to Wise County. This stuff on here is freaking me out. Witches, women hiring hit men, child porn, snipers, people faking being police to grope women. Please somebody tell me I didn't make a big mistake.

These comments are some of the most creative and funny in quite some time. Good job fellow readers.

It is because so many people forget what county they're in. Its a retard's idea of community service.

Yes...chances are you did make a mistake. It depends on where you moved here from.

Newbie to Wise, you didn't make a mistake. The folks on here complain that the Wise County folks are hicks, weirdos, etc. (guess that includes them too), but it's a great place to live. I grew up in deep east Texas, and believe me when I say this is way better. Besides, Wise County is no different than anywhere else in that it does have some undesirables, but it's better than alot of places. Get involved, meet some people, and enjoy life here.

Newbie, believe me, YOU MADE A HUGE MISTAKE, but if you bought some property, hopefully the value will continue to rise, and you will make a healthy profit when you decide to move. Sadly, I would bet that you couldn't purchase mineral rights if you are a property owner - you'll just have to deal with the big trucks, noise and polluted water - oh well, you'll have to do that anyway. Oh yeah, did I mention all the gravel trucks? Sorry.

Squicking is allowable in Wise County too.......see B's blog about the extra head found in the car wreck. Squicking typically occurs in the Bridgeport area tho.

4:13PM - maybe you should take your computer over to the Bridgeport place and have it checked for spyware - you know, it's the repair place that runs the Bridgeport forum. I'm sure they could fix it for ya.

I love that Wise County is now considered the Water Closet - who thought that was a good idea???

I am proud of these stickers whenever I see one even though I no longer live in Wise County. I am proud to be from Wise County and have one on my car even though I live in Denton County. You'd be amazed at the comments I get about that sticker. Everybody thinks its cool. I hope to move back soon.

I LOVE these stickers. They are WAY COOL. I hope everyone who lives in this county who loves this county will put one on their cars. Where do we get some more?

Anonymous said...

You can get them at City Hall

I don't know where these stickers came from or who is responsible for them but I say thank you. I think it is a great positive thing for Wise County. Why are so many of these posts on this so negative. This is great place to live and raise a family. We should be proud of where we live and this WC sticker is a great way to show our pride in who we are and where we live. I agree, IT IS COOL.

I WANT ONE OF THESE!!! Do I get them at City Hall in Decatur or Bridgeport or where???
These are great.

newbie to wise, get out! I am serious you will regret ever moving to this dump.

bigm said...

The WC sticker is like having an address tag on your car keys. When a North Side police officer finds you passed out in a bar parking lot on Sunday morning, they know where to ship you back to.

j/k...they are pretty nice marketing gimmicks.

You all will have to forgive me if I have a few questions.

Hey, Gofish... you're a jerk! Who rattled your cage? You always jump on someone's back if they make a general comment. Maybe 4:13 sucks at the internet...but you suck, period! Get a life...or do what your name suggests... GO FISH!

I thought it was made up by someone from Paradise; I thought it meant Whip Chico!

We have traveled the world and WC means Water Closet like here: href=http://www.leicestermuseums.ac.uk/discoveryzone/flushed/wc.jpg So these are locations that provide toilet facilities (remember that unisex facility at the local Lowes?)!

Stickhorse said...

The WC stickers are a gift from Carol Ann Carson and Mark Moran, both proud of Wise County. It's all related to the Wise County sesquicentennial celebration.

Anonymous said...

Apparantly they have never been on a trip outside of texas???
EVERYONE else knows to ask "Where is the W C ??" to find a public toilet!!!!!
NOBODY KNOWS HOW A WC HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH A SESQUICENTENNIAL -- WHATEVER THAT IS???!!!

Anonymous said...

6:40, did you ever think that maybe this was done in FUN and is a PLAY ON WORDS? Where is your sense of humor? I know both these folks and I can guarantee you both of them have travelled all over the world and know what WC stands for in the UK. But guess what-- were not in the UK, we're in the WC, TEXAS, just like the sticker SAYS on the bottom. Lighten up and stop being so sarcastic. This is a great idea and I appreciate them for doing it. Wise County is a great place-that's the whole point of these-a little County pride. Enjoy it dont' criticize someone for being proud of our county.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, right 6:40 when was the last time you were at Yesterday's and someone asked where the WC was??? Maybe if you knew what a sesquicentennial was, you would know what it has to do with WC TEXAS. And just exactly who decided WC can stand for just one thing? Why CANT it stand for WISE COUNTY in TEXAS and WATER CLOSET in the rest of the world? I think this is a very clever idea-I commend these two folks who made these. I imagine these folks knew exactly what they were doing and what they meant. A tribute to Wise County and the people in it.

suddenly I feel like I need to take a piss....in the "WC"?????

TRRC said...

GOOD POINT! These "W C" Water Closet / Public Toilet signs can be used as a TRIBUTE to pointout that Wise is the County that is used by the TRRC for the public disposal of drilling well waste in all those Injection Wells!

If your idea of a mistake is being surrounded by racist white trash, then yes, you've made a terrible mistake.
