Sightings on Highway 40

The onion truck: a small pickup truck going under the speed limit with its hazard lights on. There were huge bags full of onions hanging off the back, and boxes of onions below those. As I passed him, I noticed that even the passenger seat was full of onions. That man likes his onions.

The paradox: a small black car with lots of bumper stickers on the back. One read "VAMPIRE." OK, I get that, some kind of goth with a delusion. One of the others read "VEGAN AND I VOTE." OK, a vegan vampire? Either this vampire is starving to death, or it drinks the blood of poor innocent vegetables.
