Who knows what this liquored-up lesbian marketing is really targeting? Love Shot™ is just an alcoholic jelly drink—MELLOW JELLO shots.
In Japan, displaying this so-called “JDM Shocker*” sticker would be mean I like feeling up old people with “two in the pink, one in the stink” or in this case of the Japanese Domestic Market (Wiki) auto cultists, ‘two in the intake and one up the exhaust.’
Two in the intake

Ok, ok, the rest-of-the-story is that Japan has an official “marks”—stickers placed on cars to warn other drivers of new drivers or in the case of the above teardrop of orange and yellow to warn that the driver is elderly and may be impaired in their operation of their automobile.
The SHOCKER (Wiki) sticker above in a parody of the old Ochiba mark (fallen leaf mark) warning of vehicle full of autumn leaves.
Shown on the right is the now obsolete sticker to mark elderly drivers, that was used from 1997 to the end of January 2011.
← Shown on the left is the current “Koreisha ” mark for elderly drivers that has been in use since February 1, 2011. Drivers age 70 or older are strongly advised to affix the Koreisha mark to the front and rear of their vehicles and drivers over 75 are required to do so by law.

Now there is a new twist on the wheelchair logo of the International Symbol of Accessibility.
All over the news today are reports that New York City has decided to replace the “static, object-like disabled person in a wheelchair” sign (left) with a new International Symbol of Accessibility showing a person zoom-zoom-zoom-ing dynamically in a wheelchair.
