|Am I missing something?

So, I'm behind a car in traffic. And the car has decal lettering across its whole back window that says "UR FORD SUX"
Now, at the risk of revealing my age and general unhipness -- in other words, watching me text message someone is painful, and I understand how frustrating it must be for a teenager to watch me slowly peck out the letters. But still, I had thought that UR stood for "You Are" but I suppose, in this abbreviated language it can do double duty as "Your" since "You Are Ford Sux" makes no sense at all. So..."Your Ford Sucks" would be how my convential brain translates that. Which is sort of aggressive and mean-spirited, I'm thinking.
But then I take a closer look at the dude's car. (Because, like text messaging, when it comes to cars, I take the savant right out of idiot-savant.)
Dude, you're driving a Honda Civic. A beat-up Honda Civic. I mean, I'm sure there are plenty of folks who will argue that Honda is a better line than Ford...but really, while I can't see you through your tinted windows, I'm envisioning two pimple-faced kids on the playground..."yeah, well the Yellow Power Ranger sucks! The Red Power Ranger is totally cool."
Get a life, sweetheart, and consider channeling that energy into something more constructive. Or at least do me a favor, get a vasectomy and take yourself off the voting rolls. Please.
