What Light Through Yonder Windshield Breaks?

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,
Lindsay K.

hahaha... I think that as Shakespeare was constantly spelling his name in different ways, he'd probably have no issues at all with forgoing the vowels for vanity plate fame! :)

Love the plate! I would so have that on my car...am a big fan of his work. (Shakespeare, not the plate maker...just in case I needed to clear that up!)

Also snorting coffee laugh for the comment above me, for use of the words "santastic" and "dounble-take"! Here I just thought it was the pain meds, but after a second look realized the fabulous spelling!

Word Vert: exprogg. Hehehehe...ok, I'll stop commenting under the influence now.

A professor named Rob Shakespeare teaches in the theatre department there. Maybe it's his car?
