Lots of folks who put their missionary zeal on the front burner also stick it to their back bumpers in the form of Jesus Fish. Though they can't see the shining non-secular signs as they cruise down life's highway, we can... and we can do better! These 10 alternative Jesus Fish promote other dearly-held beliefs while taking some of the starch out of those who take theirs a bit too seriously. (Alternative Jesus Fish Via Cnet)
10) Evolving A Response
Call it a knee-jerk reaction but when confronted and/or affronted by the smug certainty of a Jesus Fish, the most obvious response is a Darwin Fish. Basically it's the basic freehand fish symbol that's “evolved” a pair of added legs. Some versions include the "Darwin" name but if someone can't decipher the implication of a fish with legs then they're in need of some further education, though not in Kansas. A further variation depicts the walking fish grasping a tool, usually a wrench... we'll assume it's a Monkey Wrench. (Alternative Jesus Fish Via Swisslet, get your own Darwin Fish here)
9) In Cod We Trust
Charter members of the Tea Party, red state Republicans and chagrined Romney supporters rejoice, we have your Jesus Fish right here!

8) Lord In-Vader?
Mothership to Agent ZX5, come in! I'm not saying it's aliens but just in case it is, I want them to identify and rescue me before construction of the new galactic off-ramp begins.

7) Hey Jude, Don't Make It Bad
Even otherwise observant Jews hate gefilte fish so the success of this item is very much in doubt. Then there's the question of members of the Jewish faith being prominently and publicly marked as such. Didn't somebody try something along those lines in the 1940s?

6) For FSM's Sake
Besides biblical characters and the certifiable, no one's ever actually seen, heard, touched or smelled Our Creator. Therefore, according to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, "there's every bit as much empirical, tangible, direct evidence for a Flying Spaghetti Monster as there is for any other God or gods." One thing IS certain: if a Flying Spaghetti Monster should actually happen to exist, he'd smell delicious! (Alternative Jesus Fish Via WhereMyArm, get your own FSM fish here)
5) Jurassic Parking
It's a dog-eat-dog world out there but hey, that's karma for you... and by the way, my karma hit your dogma.

Cthulhu waits, dreaming... of the day you'll put a Cthulhu Fish on your car! After all, if the purpose of slapping a fish on your Ford is to advertise your belief in a higher power, well, there are more than a few claimants to that particular position. Jesus is way cuter, though, R'lyeh. (Alternative Jesus Fish Via Wikimedia, get your own Clthulhu Fish here)
2) The Devil Made Him Do It
Other people may look down on you for sporting a Satan Fish but that's fine, Satanists think looking down is the right way to worship anyway. Even so, there are some places where your appearance won't be greeted as warmly as your afterlife: church picnics, funerals and Rick Perry's motorcade to name a few.

1) Loaves & Fishes
Hungry for religion, or just plain hungry? The cutting-edge Fish n'Chips car fish manages to mock both the mocked and the mockers in one fell swoop... hey, they all asked for it. On the other hand, flashing one of these on your bumper is certain to raise the nation's obesity rate by a small but significant percentage.
