terrific sticker

This morning on our walk, Erik and I were passing through the Catholic church's parking lot, which was full of cars--I thought maybe there was a funeral, but we saw some people wearing jeans with colorful shirts, so probably not--and there was a bumper sticker on one of the cars that said, "People are terrific! Life is wonderful!" It made me laugh. Erik noted that "terrific" shares a root with "terror," and he's right.

So I've been googling it, and it seems to be a portion of another bumper sticker having something to do with Louisiana. In that version, it's "Business is Great! People are terrific! Life is wonderful!"
