A Michigan law enacted in 1929 made it illegal to display a bumper sticker for any group that you're not actually a part of.

Earlier in the week, the Michigan House of Representatives unanimously voted to repeal the bizarre and long-unenforced law.

The Protection of Names and Emblems Act, as it was called made it a misdemeanor to display on your car "any emblem or insignia of any organization, association, fraternity, lodge, club or order" that you don't belong to.

Some locals are up in arms over the repeal and voicing their concerns.

"It's dishonest. How can it be ok for people to advertise out in the open that which they don't truly avow?" asks a disillusioned local.

"I mean, I saw one that said SAVE A TREE. EAT A BEAVER. The person driving was neither! It's just wrong."

Another local protester spoke out against a sticker that said DISLEXICS ARE TEOPLE POO!

"Really?," exclaimed the protester, "What does teople mean anyhow?"

"Exactly. I saw one that said MY OTHER RIDE IS YOUR SISTER. I thought not likely."

The protesters plan to continue their pursuit to reinstate the law by creating a bumper sticker for the cause.
