Please Fasten Seatbelts To Avoid Brain Injury

I'll ask Amanda to explain this vanity plate. Oooh the plate rage just burns inside of me! Take it away Amanda:

While driving to a St. Patty's day party on Saturday evening, I noticed this little gem... Here's the conversation:

Husband: What's so funny?
Me: Do you have the camera?
Husband: Why?
Me: I want to get a picture of that vanity plate.
Husband: Is this for one of those dumb blogs you read?
Me: They aren't dumb. Do you have the camera?
Husband: Here. But please be discreet. I don't want this guy to think we are stalking him.
Me: Can you speed up so I can get closer?
Husband: Why do you think they invented zoom?
Me: I need to make sure it's clear and steady?
Husband: At the risk of a ticket and a stalker profile? *mutters* this is ridiculous
Me: Oh goody a red light, get behind him. *CLICK*
Husband: Okay, can we put the camera away now?
Me: Sure. Until I find another stupid plate.
Husband: *sigh*

Oh, and he wasn't able to read this at first.....see if you can....

S YOT YM got it My Toy S [backwards!]

Is a Carolla S really something to brag about?

You know, I don't think so, but to each his own. If you are going to write something backwards on your plate at least make it clever and not the name of your car. How about E NUF TN?

And thank you to Amanda for sticking up for our dumb blog. We even love our H8Rs.

I never would have gotten that!
I must be dumb.

A plate only ECNALUBMA drivers can read. And really dumb.

Why would you make a backwards plate? I mean, I get it, rear view mirrors...but people aren't going to stare at your plate in the mirror for long enough to read it. They're going to stare at it if they're stuck behind you at a red light.

I get it. You look at it backwards in your rearview window... but if you did, the "S" would look backwards.

For this to be anywhere near "clever", it should have used a "2" instead of the "S"... but that would still have been stupid...


Yeah... terrible plate.

If you're going for a backward plate, I'd go with 3M TA3.
