I keep forgetting to mention this...

When the website for the new Pixar CGI movie, Cars, went live, I went through all the characters in the 3D spinner thing, and noticed something nifty.

On the VW bus character, the resident hippie of Radiator Springs, who uses organic fuel, there are a bunch of bumper stickers -- parodies of the typical sort of bumper stickers you see in real life on hippie-owned VW buses (well, if you live out here in California).

One of the stickers on the bottom, left of center, reads: "SAVE 2D ANIMATION".

Ironic, but certainly in sync with Lassiter's apparent feelings.
