Stopped by my local grocery store after work, and saw this in the parking lot. What was great for them too? It's almost sexual in a really creepy kind of way.
This definitely fits the creepy criteria.

Uh, it's also the name of a popular laxative, which if you didn't know already, is a drug taken to induce bowel movements or to loosen the stool, most often to treat constipation. Ex-worker FAIL.
I really hope this is the last post I have to do about the consistency of someone's bowel movements, thankyouverymuch.

This photo was captured by Persnickety Ticker on her way to Disney. You know what they say: If the van is a rockin', don't come a knockin'.
Oh, and one more creepy van for your viewing pleasure. Plus, this is how I feel about the public use of the word "lover." *shudder*

Are you seeing what I'm seeing? Whatever, MF? I am pretty sure MF doesn't refer to "my friend" either.
Thanks for the photo Kate. I like how you included this driver's rusty ball in the photo as well. Nice touch.
Here's this week's Most Wanted via Twitter. @MrsRJRG gets the award for best plate this week with her tweet of "SHETRNY." I don't know what to say, except you guys are awesome! Can't wait to see what you find next @LicensePlteBlah.
El_Smacky @LicensePlteBlah White Toyota with AZ plate: KAMRI. Guess what the model was?
Smoochiefrog @LicensePlteBlah Seen yesterday, TYM 4LUV
mouseybrat @LicensePlteBlah here is what i saw over the weekend... FAJITA, POOLS1, PHOTOS and BUGLUV.
DChi606 @LicensePlteBlah A big pick-up truck with plate "MR WOOD." I'm assuming the owner is in construction, but wonder how that slipped by DMV.
kbrobaseball @LicensePlteBlah state plate: XXL-666. Does this mean the devil's a big dude?
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "DAMSEXY", "DRK NHT", "READHEAD". I wasn't able to verify the veracity of these plates though.
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "I♥MYJON". Normally this isn't funny. But because 'Jon' is also synonymous with 'toilet', it is quite humorous indeed.
j_hulme @LicensePlteBlah - LA<3LADI - I think they used to be called ladies of the night, but that doesn't fit on a plate!
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "SHETRNY" ... She-Trany? It was a woman driving.... I think
j_hulme @LicensePlteBlah - AVID O2 - Yes, I like my oxygen as well. I don't need a plate for it.
DChi606 @LicensePlteBlah "TRBO SKY" on - you guessed it - a Saturn Sky... which almost ran me over.
kmtetour @LicensePlteBlah from levarburton: RT @DanHardman: Levar Burton's license plate: "KUNTA". True story. Source: LA Times

Dear Horrible License Plates,
I saw this plate in a parking lot on the campus of Indiana University. The lot was fairly close to the English building, so I can only hope that this car belongs to one of the many prominent Renaissance scholars there. I mean, who wouldn't want to roll up to a Shakespeare conference or class with his or her very own personalized Billy Shakes license plate? I can only hope that if Shakespeare were alive today he would be willing and eager to remove the vowels from his name for the sake of 6 character license plate awesomeness.
Yours in vanity,

So this is where he's been hiding out all these years - NEVADA!
Doesn't this look like Black Jesus? I had to really force myself to see Be Like Jesus in this. The whole thing is just confusing, especially that spiked vanity plate holder. One thing can be agreed on though, this driver is definitely Lovin' the Lord.
Saturday, February 21, 2009
Ohio, I thought you were screening these things? How did this driver ever get his dirty plate past the eagle eyes at the Ohio DMV? Is that second 69 really necessary? You drive your mother around in that car?!
Kimberly P., thanks for sticking to the true theme here... Creepiness in 8 characters or less. I have to go look at pictures of cute kittehs now to get this mental image to go away.

BLOC-POO comes to us from an anonymous submitter. Man, I cannot think of a single pleasant interpretation of this plate. It's all colons, enemas, and constipation. Looking for some help on this one I turned to Google. They returned the suggestion, "Did you mean black poo?" No, and I think I just puked a little.
Maybe it's a whole city block of poop? Maybe your deuce comes out in blocks?
Whatever it is, the world does not want to know.
The following is a list of license plates banned by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles between Jan. 1, 2007, and Jan. 29, 2009. Prepare to laugh your asses off. Our thanks goes to Georgina S. for sending this in to us.
I am shocked that someone would think they could get away with some of these plates. Where do you think you are? Virginia? (ziiiiing!)

Chrysler announced the discontinuation of the PT Cruiser, altogether, on January 12, 2009. Sorry bad spellers of the world, you'll have to find a new car name to botch.

So I thought today would be a good day to pick on our old friend the MINI Cooper. I don't know why, but for some reason a good number of the people who drive this car feel compelled to get vanity plates stating that, yes, they indeed own a MINI Cooper. Completely annoying.
Our first two submissions came from our good friend LadyStyx:
1FNMINI. Yep, I see one f'n MINI.
MINIWE? Like your wee-wee?
Our next submission comes from platerazzo, Jen H.
Georgina S. sent us MA BUG:
Wait a second, I thought VW Beetles were bugs? No? Ah, whatever.
If you are dying for more MINI Cooper plates you can see LILPUKN here and BMPRCAR here.

Today's post is brought to you by:
HVYMTL. Sent in by RebelYell.
First up is METLICA brought to us by Kolleen who writes:
The Metallica one is my friend's plate-- She's a HUGE Metallica fan for some ungodly reason. She even has their logo tattooed on the back of her neck. I keep trying to tell her that I question if Metallica was ever good, but she's not buying it. Oh well.
Yay Twitter friends! I had an overwhelming response this week from the platerazzi working out on the roads. Here are the top ten for the week.
inearlymorning @LicensePlteBlah Also, DA BERZ. With the accompanying frame.
MusicGrl @LicensePlteBlah On a VW Golf: MAX PUKY. Not sure I'd want to get in that car
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "KUWLKAR" ...Kias are cool now?
kmtetour @LicensePlteBlah B CNTNT 1. With your driving? Not so much.
DChi606 @LicensePlteBlah I saw a motorcycle yesterday with a MD plate reading "AWK". Probably not intentional (random 3 letters) but still funny.
dandibandit @LicensePlteBlah I saw "DAFDYL 1" today. I didn't quite know what to think of it.
inearlymorning @LicensePlteBlah Yellow VW bug with plate YELLOW. Way to be creative.
kidneythief @LicensePlteBlah drove behind a BMW with "4U QTEE"....yikes
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "PCKR". Some one needs to buy them that bumper sticker, "Tailgate me and I'll flick a booger on your windshield."
mouseybrat @LicensePlteBlah here is what i have seen so far this week... STEMRS, DANSER, CLSSYD, and my favorite POOCHI.
El_Smacky @LicensePlteBlah AZ Freedom plate: 9ELEVIN (sic). Best part is the vehicle: huge-@$$ lifted truck w/tattered American flag paint job and tailgate mural that reads "Freedom Is Not Free". Followed them for a mile trying to get a pic, but couldn't--only had camera phone.
Actually, I decided to post ELEVIN (sic) instead. Har har. See you next week @LicensePlteBlah.

Here we have a little pumpkin, a photo snapped by Amy. Get it? Orange Mini Cooper looks like a pumpkin, doesn't it? So clever.
Wait just a second though. That plate says LIL... PUKN. PUKN= puking. No? Plus I think this hue of orange is probably the color of said puke after a night of binging on Budweiser and Cheetos. Trust me, it's not a pretty site.

Chelsi C. sent us this submission for Lovin' the Lord Sunday. How does a pirate communicate with God? PRAY ARRRRR.
After you are done with your PRAY R for the day, why don't you check out our Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace pages? I am going to try and add "platerazzi" to the Urban Dictionary now.
UPDATE: We're official!

That's what you get for listening to a paperclip. Thanks for the submission Kati M.!

Vanessa P. writes to us:
A few years ago I was working at the cinema in my town. The parking lot is very small, and this guy was parked right in the middle so everyone else was blocked in.
I guess if you're too cool for school you can do whatever the hell you want. I like the fact that Vanessa has kept this photo for, "a few years." Once the plate rage takes hold of you, it will never let go. Find redemption my fellow readers! Submit your HLPs to us. It's like therapy. For free.

I know to this driver it may seem like ecstasy to own a Mazda RX-8. To this driver I say, thanks for the message Mr. Obvious. If nothing annoys me more than a vanity plate, it's one with your make of car on it.
To me it looks like you have somewhat of a drug problem. RX is a symbol typically used for prescriptions. Ecstasy is a drug. Effects may include euphoria, decreased hostility and insecurity, and a tendency to dance like a fool for hours to nauseating techno music. Although this may also be attributed to being a douche bag.
Thanks for the submission Courtney E.!

The second I found your website, I knew the vanity plate I had to submit. This car is always parked on the next block over from my house (the owner lives on the block) and the first time I ever saw it, I laughed out loud. The owner is a young guy who one can only assume is a fan of the famed SNL skit. I managed to snap a shot today.
Probably one of the best SNL skits of all time. So the fact that this driver put it on a vanity plate? I'll let it slide this time. By the way, my name is Bruce Dickinson. Yes, the Bruce Dickinson. I put my pants on just like the rest of you -- one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records. The cock of the walk, baby!
UPDATE: For those of you who are totally confused (*ahem commenters) Erika has also submitted a link to the video of this skit. You guys are the best.
Great work this week my Twitter friends. The plate rage seems to be spreading, and I like it. Found a plate you hate? Didn't get that picture? Tweet me, @LicensePlteBlah. <3 2BONE?! Dr. 69?? You find all the good ones...
amandavackrinos @licenseplteblah just saw CA plate "<3 2BONE" on a ford focus. how did that one slip by the dmv?
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "2NVTHIS". It wasn't anything to envy, trust me!
MusicGrl @LicensePlteBlah IS JESUS - not sure if it's theological angst or Loving the Lord.
MusicGrl @LicensePlteBlah 96-MPALA on a - *gasp* - '96 Impala.
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "ITS4XX" ... Really?
desikitteh @LicensePlteBlah seen yesterday, RXTURBO. guess what type of car it was. :op
MrsRJRG @LicensePlteBlah "TIMAAAH" a la South Park.
kmtetour @LicensePlteBlah DR 69. That's right. Either he's a sex doctor, or that's when he got his doctorate. hmmmm. I'm going with sex doctor.
geminitwinsfyre @LicensePlteBlah on a Fire Red 2009 Mustang "WAR HRS" with the way they were driving I'd say it could be hearse isntead of horse
mouseybrat @LicensePlteBlah I saw 4 horrible plates today. Starting with ROLO 2.Next was SAVE IT on what looked like a subcontractors pickup truck. Third was KNIZZA, google says this is a band and lastly ADWERA google says this is a breeder of Rhodesian Ridgebacks
freedomfirst @LicensePlteBlah I saw a license plate a few days back that I truly enjoyed. MADLYNN. I think it's perfect. It was on a minivan. It's the kind that leaves you wanting to know more. Did the woman's parents murder what was once a perfectly good name, or is her name "Lynn" and she suffers from anger issues or occasional dementia. I like to think it's the latter.
mouseybrat @LicensePlteBlah saw a lime green vw beatle last nite with the plate "FEISTY"

Here we have a young math enthusiast. She was crowned Ms. Math 1996 at the Nevada State Fair. I hear she won the talent portion by reciting pi to the 1000th decimal place. If she really works at it, someday she can rise to the rank of Doctor Math. Or with some really hard work, she'll be at the level of this vanity plate owner, MATHGOD. Bow down and worship me, I can solve some really hard equations.

Georgina S. sent us this gem the other day:
I saw a great one on the way to work this morning. I guess this person is not suffering from a lack of self esteem, since the plate says "SUCCSS." However, now that I think about it, I suppose it could also be an advertisement for an escort service if it were read more along the lines of "sucks."
*Doing my best Borat impression* Great success!

Here are some plates that make me second guess your ability to drive, which is always a nice feeling. Watch your back, dear readers of this blog. There are some crazies on the roads.
Example #3NO YES: Yes, we all love indecisiveness, don't we? Especially on the roads. Turn left! No, right! Take exit! Decide half a second later to not take the exit! Merge back onto interstate!
Examples #4 and #5
Examples #6 and #7
[ASYLUM] is actually my friend's car; he has had many stupid license plates, including DRAKKAR and DRKNSS. loser!
Thanks to everyone for making this endless post possible:

Okay. I admit it. I actually think this plate is quite clever. Mostly because it instantly made me think of Napoleon Dynamite:
Deb: What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite: A liger.
Deb: What's a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.
I wonder if this car was built for its skills in magic?
Thanks for the tots Jen H.!

Actually, we are all thinking the exact same thing. Why would anyone pay extra to get such a stupid license plate? OMG WHY?!

A piece of yellow plastic here. A turn-signal bulb there. Chuck Maner picked up remnants left behind after a tow truck hauled away a Lamborghini that crashed Friday afternoon on Norwalk Street.
"It's the closest I'll get to a Lamborghini," Maner said.
He held up two handfuls of decadent Italian debris and mentioned the song "One Piece at a Time," in which Johnny Cash describes stealing a car piece by piece from 1949 to 1973.
"If I furrow around enough, I'll get a full one," Maner said.
Good luck, Mr. Maner. Did you happen to snag that plate?
Here is this week's Most Wanted list from Twitter. You never cease to amaze me. If you want in on the fun, message me @LicensePlteBlah. I look forward to your finds.

I couldn't decide who to cheer for during the Super Bowl yesterday. Then I realized that I could look to my vanity plate collection for guidance. So I concluded that the Steelers needed to win, because no one sent in a Cardinals plate. Then I drank a lot of beer.
Surprisingly this method worked. Thanks Jen H. for a perfectly timed submish!
Just because I spent 2 whole days archiving over 500 vanity plate submissions, I am going to bombard you with all of the losers from this year. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.
Someone call a doctor!
Finally, we have what looks to be a transplanted Cheesehead driving around the state of Nevada. I am new to the state of Wisconsin myself, but I will never understand you people and your football.
