Prius Repellent: This Truck Belongs on "Greetings From Arizona" Postcards

If you had to describe the State of Arizona with just one photo, this might just be that photo.

There's a certain brand of hippie-hating jackassery around here, and many just settle for the "Obama's a socialist" bumper-sticker. Not this guy, whom we spotted on State Route 51 Wednesday. His hatred for hippies has to be demonstrated with exhaust stacks on his diesel rig, with the phrase "Prius Repellent" stuck on the back window.

(The smaller sticker has the Cummins logo, and says, "Mind if I smoke?")

When we saw this truck, it seemed vaguely familiar. That's because a picture of a similar Dodge Ram -- with the stacks and "Prius Repellent" sticker -- has been floating around the Internet for a few years now.

The origin of the license plate on that truck should come as no surprise: Arizona.
