Why do people line the back window area of their cars with stuffed animals??

Is this supposed to look good? When did it become fashionable to have dusty, sun faded plush toys decorating the window area of your Honda? I mean, really...

  • They think it's cute. In most states it's illegal to put stuff int he back window.

  • I don't care. As long as their view isn't obstructed it's fine.

  • Usually because they are a bad driver and don't use that window any way.

  • I do it to lure the little kiddies into my car...KIDDING. I have no idea but I guess it's better than having every piece of mail/trash/cup sitting on the dashboard

  • I've seen this for years. I don't get it either. It just makes the car look cluttered and dirty.

  • I saw one the other day with all these white cats. Some had been back there so long they had begun to yellow. It all looked a little scary.

  • HAHA, just took me back to my High School days. My bf bought me a big stuffed gorilla (cant remember why) anyway, I put it in the backseat and even buckled it in (just for shits and giggles).

  • I could never understand why the space behind the back seat was so wasted so I stuck my kids back there when they were little so I'd have more room for the bigger kids in the backseat itself.

    Kidding! :)
