Decipher this bumper sticker

Yesterday, I saw this bumper sticker:


I haven't been the same since that house fell on my sister.



(or something along those lines).

What does that mean? Is it a Wizard of Oz reference?

(The driver seemed to be in his 50s).

I'd say its some kind of Wizard of Oz reference, or perhaps a Wicked musical reference.

I think this guy might be one of my brothers.

Sounds like a WofO reference to me.

She's saying she's the Wicked Witch of the West. It's one of those "I'm proud to be a bitch" things.

Maybe this is the Jesus fish for Wiccans.

That's the quote, John Glass.

It was a bit odd that the driver was an old guy. Not very witchy to me.

If my wife's car said that I would take the bus. Or more likely: not have married her.

Maybe he's from New Orleans and couldn't evacuate. Poor guy had a tragedy, and he's being mocked.

When from behind me, a woman of 25 uttered the dumbest thing I'd ever heard in my life ... She said, 'If it weren’t for my horse, I wouldn’t have spent that year in college.' I'll repeat that. I'll repeat that because that's the kind of sentence that when you hear it, your brain comes to a screeching halt. And the left hand side of the brain looks at the right hand side and goes, 'It's dark in here, and we may die.' She said, 'If it weren't for my horse...' as in, giddy up, giddy up, let's go - 'I wouldn't have spent that year in college,' a degree-granting institution. Don't! Don't think about that sentence for more than three minutes, or blood'll shoot out your nose. The American medical profession doesn't know why we get an aneurysm. It's when a blood vessel bursts in our head for no apparent reason. There's a reason. You're at the mall one day, and somebody over there says the dumbest thing you've ever heard and it goes in your ear. So you turn around to see if your friends heard it, cause if your friends heard it, and you can talk about what the jackass said, then it'll be gone. But your friends are over here, pretending they're gonna buy a cellular phone, and they're not gonna buy a cellular phone, because they don't even understand how the rate structure works. So you turn back, to find the person who said it, because if you can ask 'em a question like, 'WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKIN' ABOUT?!' then it'll go away. But they're gone. And now those words are in your head. And those words don't go away. Cause the way I see it, 7% of our brains functions all the time, because 99% of everything that happens is the same old stuff. We get it. All right. Move on. Get it. Right. But every so often, somethin' like that happens: 'If it weren't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college.' So your brain goes, 'LET'S FIGURE IT OUT! Son of a bitch! I wonder what that's about!' I wonder, was she riding the horse to school? No, she wouldn't be riding the horse to school. Maybe it was a polo pony; she had a polo pony scholarship. Maybe she sold the horse and that's how she - she was betting on the horse! WHAT THE FUCK?!! And then you realize that anybody who went to college would never say anything that stupid in public. And as soon as you have that thought, your eyes close and the next morning they find you dead in your bathroom. - Lewis Black

I interviewed Lewis Black a few years ago and asked if anyone had ever come forward, claiming to be the source of that quote. He said no, but he wishes she would, so he could sit behing her at IHOPs forever.

I'm still trying to figure out the "My other car is a Pynchon novel" bumper sticker.

also wasn't the sister of the wicked witch, glenda the good witch... which (no pun) would make the owner of the bumper sticker the good witch/princess.

There was the Wicked Witch of the East and the Wicked Witch of the West. The one from the east was the one killed by the house.

that is not what the bumnper sticker said!
it said "Things have not been the same since that house fell on my sister"

and i am thinking it has something to do with wizard of oz and the person's sister being a witch.

Wicked Witch of the East: Killed by house
Wicked Witch of the West: Melted by Dorothy*

She's saying that she is the Wicked Witch of the West. Glinda was not her sister.

*And I've never even seen "The Wizard of Oz"
