Perhaps every parent needs one for their child before trips to the shopping mall

Here is another great example of why you should never abbreviate words on license plates OR use nicknames that you haven't done proper research on. Thanks to Arlynn for snapping this lovely photo.

The obvious interpretation here is "Lucky Lizard." My curious self typed this into Google to see what I could come up with, and lo and behold, I discovered this extremely bizarre item: Kids Lucky Lizard Pendant For Discipline Control. What is even more disturbing is the description of this item which I must share with you (poor grammar, random capitalization, double quotation marks, and all. The horror!):

Wow! The Lucky LIZARD Gemstone Carving as Pendant. This Pendant will be Perfect and Fun Accessory for your Child, and the Same time will Provide Natural Protective Qualities to your Loved One. This Pendant will Influence DISCIPLINE CONTROL Powers towards your Child, as TIGER EYE Stone is the Best Stone for this Purpose. A LIZARD is a Small Version of Dragon, which we all heard about from our Grandma tales. It is a Symbol of Long life, fertility and wisdom. For Centuries it was believed that Dragon Amulet will Protect from Evil Spirits. TIGER EYE NATURAL POWERS for KIDS A ""Grounding Stone"". Tiger's Eye contains the gentle grounding energy of Earth. This stone is good in helping to influence the children when you really need to get them to understand something. It enhances integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. Tiger's Eye is excellent for grounding psychic energy and providing security for opening up the psychic centers. It helps Children to obtain goals by taking direct action and by knowing when to act or wait. Sometimes children get carried away and get lost in their dream world. Tiger Eye helps to pull them back into their bodies (after astral travel). Perhaps every parent needs one for their child before trips to the shopping mall.

I've ordered 10 already.

The second interpretation could be LK Y LZRD, which I see as "Lick Your Lizard." Bleh!

This vanity plate is wrong in so many ways. Do your reasearch people!

Could also be "leaky lizard", as in "I pull over frequently to pee".

I couldn't figure out what licky lizard meant..

LadyStyx said... that is truly wrong on several levels!

I took it as "lucky lizard", meaning the guy's wang. As in he's a hound dog who notches his bedpost.

Lynyrd Skynyrd?

Travis Erwin said...
