This is Some Heavy Stuff

You need to be careful MS. PB FT. PB can mean a number of things. At first glance, I though you might have some sort of peanut butter foot fetish and imagined two slices of white bread sandwiching your foot. And then I puked a little in my mouth.

I soon realized what you really mean though. For those of you still wondering, Pb is the 82nd element on the Periodic Table: Lead. So to translate, MS PB FT reads, "Ms. Lead Foot." You could also interpret this as, "Hey, Mr. Policeman! Pull me over!"

Thanks to Courtney E. for sending this one in.

I'm impressed.....I'm not so sure I would have gotten that one on my own.

I agree, this one is pretty obscure. What's the point of having a cutsie plate if most of the people on the road can't figure it out? I hate that! Maybe you should start a sub-category on this blog for Annoyingly Cryptic Plates.

I'm SURE I would have never figured this out. Peanut Butter just wouldn't get out of my mind.

I am glad everyone agrees. MS PB FT = Peanut Butter

That is incredibly creative. Would I have thought of it? Probably not, but then again I barely passed HS Chemistry. :)

The last name of one of the science teachers at the school I work at is Rust, her license plate is the Periodic Symbol for rust (which I don't remember). Creative in a nerdy way, def.

My first guess was Ms. Peanut Butter Fat.

Elena said...

I thought she loved peanut butter full time and hoped she got more than minimum wage.....

OMG...I got this before I even read the commentary.

I am such a closet nerd.

Well..not now...

Ms. Lead Foot is actually pretty funny. But I read it as "Ms. Peanut Butter Fart". Seemed like quite a thing to declare to the world, but hey, be proud of what you are!

I have to admit... MS peanut butter foot was my first hought too.

I a SO glad it means something completely different

Watercolor said...

I thought it was Ms. Probably Fat heh See how well *I* did in chemistry....

Leslie said...

I got the lead foot thing but my initial reaction was that maybe she had gas because I overlooked the space between PB and FT which would have made it "MS PBFT"...yet another redeeming quality to advertise to the world. It would have gone nicely with the I FRTID plate.

Been a few decades since h.s. chem, so I didn't get this one right off.

oh my gosh, i thought the same thing about the peanut butter idea when i first saw this picture...lol...though I really hate chemistry (and recently dropped out of the honors version of the class) I must admit that using the atomic symbol (if that's the right term) is kind of a cool way to fit that little message on the person's license plate.
