    That’s hilarious. Those bumper stickers used to confuse the hell out of me as a child. At the time I thought it was being declared by people who reeeeeally hated grapes. For those of you who don’t know, “No Grapes” was a protest led by César Chávez in the 80’s against the use of toxic pesticides that were making the harvesters sick.

      Well, if that’s a bumper sticker, then sholdn’t this picture be on HackedIRL or something?

    Maybe they’re a choking hazard for the..dumpster?

    But…But Don Cherry should be allowed everywhere!

    That sticker is old. It dates from the United Farmworkers strike in the late 1960s, when grapes were widely boycotted because of labor issues. There was a (probably apocryphal) story of a little girl in ultra-liberal Berkeley, seeing some grapes for sale in a supermarket, saying, “Look, Mommy, green olives!”

    Now, how that sticker managed to hang on in legible condition from the late 1960s to the present, I don’t know. Perhaps the picture itself is old? Or perhaps the container it’s stuck to was stored inside somewhere until recently.

      These stickers were being used as recently as the 90’s, to protest the use of pesticides that were harming migrant workers who picked grapes. Perhaps more recently, I don’t know.

    What’s the deal with grapenuts? No grapes, no nuts.

    • ZJ says:

      Well, GrapeNuts contain maltose, which their inventor C. W. Post incorrectly thought was known as “grape sugar.” And the taste of the cereal distinctly reminded him of nuts.
      There you go!

    No grapes? Aww, man, who put that ‘G’ there?

  7. Mopster says:

    Rasins are actually made from sunburnt vampires, I have researched this and tested it to be sure.

  8. LSP says:

    What if I sit in the dumpster and eat the grapes, is that still void?

  9. duck says:

    Got any grapes?

  10. what says:

    I think everyone is missing the joke here. It’s not just a dumpster, it’s a trash compactor and they’re saying to not throw grapes in to crush and make wine. Or grape juice. Or vinegar…

  11. Freeshooter says:

    Maybe they want to keep the grapeist out.

  12. ...? says:

    Haha, I was eating a grape at the exact moment I saw this…

  13. kidryano says:

    What about rapes?

  14. Gordon says:

    Oh, so it’s a girls only party, eh?

    This dumpster was clearly meant to insult Don Cherry. Grapes himself would never wear colo(u)rs this bland.
