“Didn’t support the troops—saw a bumper sticker, now do”

“Support Our Troops” is a popular bumper sticker. American actor and writer Seth MacFarlane thought the saying needed some parody, so he wrote on Twitter on November 16, 2010:
 
“Didn’t support the troops, saw a bumper sticker, now do.”
 
The saying quickly became popular on Twitter and was even made into a poster from Demotivation.
