TMI

Lover is one of those words that you just shouldn't use to describe yourself in public. I mean when is this ever appropriate? "My love" is kind of endearing, but LUVER? Unless that is your last name, I am giving this the HLP Creeptastic Seal of Disapproval.

I instantly thought of this sketch with Christopher Walken, Rachel Dratch, Will Ferrell, and Ana Gasteyer on Saturday Night Live titled "Patio Lovers":

Virginia: Well, are you at the point in your relationship when you can walk hand-in-hand as lovers?
Catherine: I, um, guess so.
Walter: Actually, we haven't been seeing each other all that long.
Virginia: Oh, I see. So in due time, eh lover?
Roger: [as he rubs Virginia's arms] Yes, Virginia. I remember our first days of courtship as if it were yesterday. Eager drives to Holyoke. Passionate cries of love making muffle into a feather pillow in order to avoid waking your roommate Chin Le. [kisses Virginia]
Virginia: Oh, yes, yes. Fond memories, my lover prince.

Our thanks goes to April H. for sending this photo to us.

My lover has a fiery soul. I best chase her for she is my ride.

That skit is SO funny. And you are right, this plate is just TMI!!

This odd spelling makes me think of Billy Crystal's old Fernando skits on SNL. It's better to be a "loo-fair" than a hater, non?

(word verif: "bledigh" That's what she said!

Can you believe I'm 35 years old & have never seen one episode of SNL. Ever. lol

That plate made me think about getting new windows.

(Hey, Cece, don't feel bad, I'm older than you and I've never watched The Simpsons. It happens.)

Me thinks the driver's over-compensating or something....

I think I forgot to mention to you that when I found that plate I was in a Sonic drive-thru. And this car wasn't parked in the "I'm waiting for my food" area - it was definitely an employee. Classy!! I bet he gets all the ladies!

Maybe they meant "luver" in the sense of "luver, not fiter"?

When I looked at this again, I was instantly over come with "Boombastic" by Shaggy

"Mr. Lover, Lover, Mr. Lover Lover, girl, Mr. Lover, Lover, Mr. Lover Lover

She call me Mr. Boombastic say me fantastic..."

BAHAHHAHAHAHA..snort..deep breath...BAHAHAHAHhAHHAHA!!!!!!!

Found your blog through YSaC. Very amusing. On second glance at this one, I came to the conclusion that it is not a reflection of the driver's sexual prowess, but love - erm, sorry - luv for Texas. Either is twisted, but I think that's what this individual was going for. Or I could be completely wrong - it could be along the lines of what Sarah said. They could just be HUGE fans of the Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney duet from years ago "Paul, I think I told you - I'm a luver not a fighter..."

Ew. I went to a wedding once where they kept saying lover during the service. I wanted to barf. Funny site you got here.

It's pretty obvious the driver means "Texas Luver", since the word "Texas" is right above "Luver". How are people not catching that? Texans are proud to be from Texas...

Uh Anonymous, I don't think you quite get what this site is about. Plus, did you read the other comments? Probably not, because you would see that clearly this plate is open for interpretation!

One of my favorite skits on SNL. As Christopher Walken said, "I must go, for she is my ride." Here is to hoping the ride had this plate.
