Would You Like Some Sheesh With That Whine?

Marisa M. wrote this most humorous email to us:

I was in Colorado Springs recently on business, toodling down the highway in my rental car lost as usual when this green car revved past me and cut me off. Guess I wasn't going fast enough for him. When I saw the plate, I went from pissed to laughing, since it seemed custom made just for that moment--SHEEESH you tourist drivers are so damn slow!

Vanity plates are not a free ticket jerk-land people!

I was saying that yesterday...almost wish I had that plate while I was being tailgated on icy roads in fog. Or better yet...BCK OFF! *g*

Oh man, I missed three more totally awesome plates yesterday. I guess the holiday shopping and its aftermath are bringing all the vanity drivers out of the woodwork.

The first was a big black SUV with a Jersey plate that read "BIG BABY". I'm not sure what they guy was saying with that one.

The second was on a minivan that had clearly been through some recent weather. It said "POLRBR" or something very close to that. I can't recall if the A was included or not.

The third one flew past me on the highway so fast it was almost too far away by the time I noticed the plate. But it looked for all the world as if it read "DE VILLE". That made me laugh. Especially since it was misspelled, but if they had spelled it correctly (DE VIL), most people would have read "DEVIL" and not understood.

Makes me wonder just how far one could push the whole alliterative- substitute-for-naughty-words thing. Could you get FRIG OFF? Or maybe FRIG U?

You just know there's somebody somewhere who would pay to have either of those.

Donna, one of my good friends has a license plate that says "BCKOFF". It's probably one of my favorite plates ever.

Hi HLP darlings! Because of the type of blog you have, I don't often leave comments, but I love your work and stop by every day for a gander. Hope your Christmas was fantastic. Keep up the great license plates - they make my day.

I love this blog! I check it for my daily laugh!

Today I saw this huge pickup truck, probably jacked up higher than it had to be. As it passed us, my mom commented on how high it was compared to my little sedan. Lo and behold, it's plate was HGHBRD.

Vanity plates aren't a ticket to jerk-land because most who have one are already there.

Oh dear. And here I thought the plate I once saw in a parking lot reading "AAARGH" was bad (oh, if only I had a picture...or a picture of the one I saw the other day, if only I could remember what it said...)

I love this blog, keep up the good work!
