I got another reply about the kid peeing thing, this one from Bob who gave me a broader interpretation of the stickers:

"What you're seeing are manifestations of a rather disquieting phenomenon that's actually a surpassing of mere "attention getting" and is moving more deeply into the area of what the Latin community used to call "machismo." It's not just "look at me," it's "look at me 'cuz I'm better than you and if you don't acknowledge that I'll rip your face off." It's everwhere these days; what I call the "WWFing of America."

A brilliant analysis! Thanks, Bob. :-)
