Picture Close Reading: Who Would Jesus Tailgate?

I decided to put up this picture for a closer look because it displays something that I find disturbingly interesting: The Crucified Jesus Head.
As if the crucifix alone wasn’t gory enough, they’ve now modified it by focusing on Jesus’ thorn-crowned head and stylizing it a bit. Then, they put it on every third taxi, delivery truck, and private car in this country.
I don’t mean to make light of the crucifixion; in fact, I almost feel that that’s what the people who put these decals on their vehicle are doing. And for some reason, the people in these trucks and cars seem to be some of the worst drivers, and the vehicles seem to belch out even more black smoke all over.
This might be symbolic, but I don’t know what for. All the same, I just thought I’d share it with you.
