Sorry About Your Inferiority Complex...

Thanks, Captain Obvious. I didn't know if you were driving a Hummer or not, so I had to look to your vanity plate to clarify. If there is anything that is more annoying than a Hummer (Hi! I like to waste gas and run over children), it's a Hummer with a vanity plate. Thanks to LadyStyx (official member of the platerazzi) for sending this one our way. I'm almost positive this won't be our last Hummer plate.

Do you know what the Urban Dictionary says about hummers? Errr never mind...

I know the blogosphere seems to be taking a break from writing over the holidays, but we are mental here at VP:CI8COL, so we are going to keep posting daily. Check back with us, because we have some good stuff coming up!

Haha! Run over children... They probably would...

Becky said...

Wow. I'm pretty sure this is one of the most annoying ones.

Hummers suck

I am suddenly feeling like I'm not the only one who is annoyed by Hummers. Get that plate-rage out people!

God Bless that Urban Dictionary! You know a man named that beast of a car and laughed the entire time as they approved it!

Donna said...

Hummers run over little Ford Focus cars too. I had a Focus last year, trying to drive through a Midwest snowstorm and was nearly run over by a Hummer.

I agree, nothing says "I spend my paycheck on gas" like a Hummer.

This is definitely one of the more annoying ones Ive seen around here, although there are many that are even more annoying. I've lost count of some of the ones I couldnt get because the camera simply wasnt fast enough to catch them.

There is a guy that lives in the town that I work in that drives a Hummer & has HUMMER in big stickers across the top of his windshield...like we need to be told that his ride is a Hummer... yea, that makes sense...

Sarah said...

Before seeing it was a Hummer, I read that as "I'm human."

ahaha. That probably would have been less annoying than what it actually says. I'm...well...let's just say I'm not a fan of Hummers.

The opposite end of the spectrum from a Hummer with HUMMN on the plate, is a Ford Focus with FOCUSD on the plate. I've seen that one a few times near my work.

Deborah Godin said...

I'm with Sarah, my first thought was "I'm human" too. Especially since we just had the Melonhead one...like, another species heard from.

Jenn said...

I thought it might say "I'm human" as well. Maybe they are trying to say "Even though I drive a Hummer, I'm still a human!".

Mari said...

Hmmm, I wonder, were you hummin' all the way to the gas station last summer?

Bridgete said...

I'm pretty sure they sold their kidney in order to put gas in it. And possibly part of their liver.

Flartus said...

Yeah, I was with the "human" thinkers too. "Don't hate me because you can't drive a manly beast like I do...I'm just human!"

Mmmmmaybe...a self-absorbed, selfish, road- and resource-hogging human who probably needs a personality transplant. Ya coulda bought a Prius and donated the rest to a hospital for crippled orphans taking care of abandoned puppies.

There ya go, HLP...that enough rage for ya?

Yesterday, about a half hour south of St. Louis, I spotted an orange Hummer H2 with the Missouri license plate "HUM 2ME" (as if I needed one more reason to hate personalized plates).

I'd never recommend a Prius as a gas-sipping alternative to gas guzzlers like Hummers, though. Their owners are every bit as smug and self-important, and I've seen more than my share of Priuses with oh-too-clever license plates as well.

Kore said...

I've never been run over by a Hummer, however I was nearly killed by a headcase in a Prius. I hope that the government starts cracking down on hybrids soon, the smug emissions are starting to get to me.

Oh, and the vanity plate on the Hummer is lame.

mrh said...

I agree about smug emissions- the smugness emitted from Priuses will rival those from Hummers, BMWs, Porsches, and Corvettes any day.

If someone wants to drive a hybrid, fine, just lose the attitude. With what goes into production of hybrids, the cost and burden of battery disposal, etc., I'm not sure it's a better choice than a simple fuel-efficient gasoline powered vehicle like a Ford Focus or a Honda Civic, but to each his/her own I suppose.

Jenn said...

I have to admit that I drive a Prius. I love it. It's a fun car. I have say though, I am in the camp of people who hate hybrids with bumper stickers with phrases like: "So many miles, so little gas." Ugh. Cars like that deserve to get ran over by Hummers.
I have yet to see a hybrid with an obnoxious license plate. I'm sure it's just a matter of time though.
Also, the smugness you feel driving a Prius does go down with wear. Our car(a 2006)has 60,000+ miles on it, hail dents and what can only be described as a gaping wound on the back left corner from being backed into.
Also, smugness sees to go up and down in relation to gas prices at the time. :-D
