Honk If You're Hungry

Sometimes your emails crack me up more than the plate submissions do. Here is one from Amy over at Baking and Mistaking:

I was on my way home from work tonight, late and quite a bit peckish (though if we're being truthful I'd been snacking all day) when I came across this plate. I'd thought I was quite hungry, but clearly I had some competition. In deference to the plate's concern I acquiesced and left my granola bar on the hood of the car. Just kidding - I would never part with my granola bar. It's for EMERGENCIES.

I agree Amy, and after reading your yummy website I am starving. I can kind of understand where this driver is coming from, but to go and get a vanity plate with the word RAVENOUS on it? Kind of extreme.

This driver can have my granola bar, but she'll have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

Maybe the driver is a really big fan of the Baltimore Ravens?

Not in New York. Even if they are the biggest Ravens fan EVER, they wouldn't advertise it for fear of obscenities being yelled at them on a regular basis or their car being keyed.

I recently moved to Boston and I did not understand sports fanaticism until I moved here - the rivalry between Boston and NY is almost scary and NY takes their sports teams just as seriously as Bay Staters do.

Nope, safe to say that person is just really hungry. OR, going with the Raven-ous idea, is really into Edgar Allan Poe. He was going to go with "Usher" as in "Fall of the House of Usher" but then reaized that being mistaken for an Usher fan would be worse than being mistaken for a Ravens fan in NY.

probably thinks he/she is ravenous as in gorgeous

Watercolor, do you mean ravishing?

I saw this entry and now I have "Notorious" by Duran Duran stuck in my head. Much better license plate IMO.

At least they spelled it correctly. Kudos for that.

And no, ravenous is not a synonym for gorgeous.

I can really relate to the driver. I still wouldn't get a vanity plate to promote my condition though. Love your site!

Never want to see this in my rear view at Wendy's. Imagine the fear...

LadyStyx said...

And as I'm reading this, I pull the little bag of Goldfish crackers out of my purse and start nibbling...

I admit it--I totally carry an emergency snack bar, too.
