Just In Time For Bikini Season!

Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure which involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall.

Ew. Maybe we can keep our cosmetic procedures to ourselves next time?

Photo credit goes to Leslie.

ISPRKY (Is perky?) comes to us from LadyStyx. I must admit, the first thing that popped into my head after reading this was, of course, BOOBIES. And since we are on the plastic surgery theme, I just had to include this one. The wikionary defines perky as "Lively or enthusiastic; Standing upright; firm."

Enjoy them while you can lady.

Jennifer writes to us: Saw this at a hotel in Virginia. It's not a great photo but it says "DTH TRAP" - I used to have a similar car, so I can sympathize.

You know, I drove a car like this throughout my high school days (However, it wasn't a Mercedes). The air conditioning broke one week into owning it, and the windows would only go down if you stood outside of the car with your hands on opposite sides of the window and forced it down. The seat belt would randomly unhinge and fly off. The transmission would frequently stop working in the middle of driving. I had to drive it in reverse to the mechanic once, because that is the only gear that worked. It's like it was trying to kill me. I'm surprised it didn't light itself on fire at some point.

Anyone else ever drive a Death Trap?

Okay, You Just Crossed The Creepy Line

PULS8 was caught by Amanda, whose only words were, "Gross."

Pulsate (v.): To quiver, vibrate; To expand and contract rhythmically.

Do you remember this guy? It's like something out of a cheap romance novel.

Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

We're so cool that even ice cubes are jealous.

Sara S. sent us OSO COOL. Try not to roll your eyes. I know, this is going to be hard.

I don't know if it gets any more annoying than this. ME-SEXY was taken by platerazzo Donna F.

Who are these people? Don't you just want to find them and say, "Hey! You know what is sexy, ma'am? Proper grammar is sexy." I can just hear her response now: Me have no idea what you talking about!

Stay classy, platerazzi. Stay classy.

GE ZUS save me from misspellings

Welcome to Lovin' the Lord Sunday! Hannah writes to us: This isn't especially creepy, but the spelling is brilliant!

GE-ZUS take the wheel.

I don't know if "brilliant" would be the word I would use to describe this one. I wonder what THE GRAMMARPHILE would think about this one? Hmm?

Shut your pie hole

Yesterday was all about a different kind of pie (π), but today we are going to stick with real pie. You've got to be really into pie to put this stuff on a license plate. And really, is this what you want to be known for? Pie?

As Amercian as apple pie. What a second, does that say Ontario?

Man, I am starving...

Donna F. snapped LUVSPIE.

Come To The Dork Side: We Have Pi

I don't usually like to do re-posts, but the last photo in this article is great (click on the photo for the full effect). The original article can be seen here. (Although, we've been eating Pi here for quite some time).

The Pi-Mobile Races at Imaginary Number Speeds

Some people drive a 1.2. Others a 2.2. Few drive a 3.14159. But whatever you drive, beware of the logarithms and remember to throw away your 420 in case you see a 5-0. 10-4?

That image was posted by Reddit user Alexem, who captured his 2001 Volkswagen Jetta going past the 314,159 kilometers mark. Here's another—less subtle—pi-mobile: The Mazda Pi. [Reddit via BBG]

What a πmp. Get it? PImp! Ar har har har.

(√-1) (2*4) ∑ π Okay, I need to stop...

I just poked your mom on facebook

Squeeze me, and I'll fart on you.

SQUEEZ comes to us from Courtney E: We were behind this car for a long time on our way to Austin. I don’t even get the meaning behind this plate. I did feel like “SQUEEZ”ing their head for having such a dumb plate. They got every letter except for the last “e”.

Brian P. sends us our first Hawaiian plate, POKE. Maybe this driver is a big Facebook fan? Or maybe they're just creepy? Either way, you're probably going to poke somebody's eye out with that thing.

See also, THRUST, HUMP, and LUV TAP (for more strangers touching you). *shudder*

I Have An Over-active Awesome Gland

IV ARIVD (I've arrived). This is just a little on the conceited side...dontcha think!? I would have to agree with you Kate. Despite what this driver may think, the world does not, in fact, revolve around her.
Oooh I'm scared! (Picture credit goes to Heidi)
Lexi sent us THA MAN (The man). Her email got straight to the point: People suck.
This last plate, 2SPCY4U (Too spicy for you), comes to us from Jerod: How does that person know they are too spicy for me? While I don't eat whole habaneroes I do chop them up for my homemade salsa. I've also made my own kim chee. I've found that if I'm more than 25 miles from an ocean I need to order food extra spicy when given the choice. This is Missoula, not Mexico.

Don't act like you aren't impressed.

I Have Flying Monkeys And I'm Not Afraid To Use Them

Becky R. found WITCH for us. She writes: I actually passed this one on my way out of the garage at work, threw it into reverse and drove backwards to get back to it! I'm not sure if her plate is telling us she is of the hocus-pocus or bee-yotch (or would that be wee-yotch?) variety... Wicked.
MRS EVIL, kind of creepy, no? I always thought Dr. Evil was a bachelor. Picture credit goes to Oliver S. At least you aren't an EVIL MOM, eh? MUHUHEHAHAHA!

Don't forget to check us out on Twitter. I am going over there right now to add Oprah as a friend. Follow us and then tweet us all the plates you can't seem to catch with a camera. Then I will re-tweet (RT) them to share with the Twitter platerazzi. You will also see the RTs on the left sidebar on the site! Join our platerazzi army and tweet us @LicensePlteBlah wee-otches!

Anyone have tickets? TO THE GUN SHOW?

GUNSLGR (Gunslinger) comes to us from Joy O. Although I am confused by this driver's vanity plate holder. I'd rather be gunslinger? The grammar here is atrocious, but I don't really know what I was expecting from someone with this term on their license plate. Joy followed up to her original email with: ...the funny thing on that one is it was an older lady driving it. I don't know about you, but I am a little scared.

Oklahoma: Even our guns carry guns.

Sunday, April 19, 2009


Jodi M. sent us HZ GR8CE (His Grace). Listen vanity plate owner, this is a clear violation of using an 8 to represent your message. His Graightce? Not only do I sound like a cat hacking up a hairball when I attempt to say that out loud, but I just spit all over my screen.

Lord, we love you, just not on vanity license plates.

Kids For Sale

LadyStyx found us this set of plates for our viewing pleasure. How much would it suck to be the children of these people? Yeah, we really regret that last one. He's such a misfit. How much do you hate your children? 8IS ENUF. Yeah, well that is obvious. I am pretty sure from the size of the SUV pictured, this driver's plate is referring, once again, to her numerous offspring. I first thought this might be referring to the last president, but we'll stick with the theme here. If there is one thing I've learned from all of this: Children will only make you crazy. Crazy enough to buy vanity plates of this caliber.

My Lovely Lady Lumps

It's been a while since our last Wisconsin plate.

Wisconsin comes back in all of it's cheesy glory though with this submission from Robin H, HUMPY 1. Does that mean you are covered in humps? Or maybe you like to, uh, hump? Like the hilarious Digital Underground? Well I would just have to reply with, the world does not need to know about your, um, thrusting. Speaking of which...!

Yeah, that says THRUST. Ewwww.

Thanks Kati!

Hey creepsters, What are you going to do with all that junk, all that junk inside your trunk?

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Yeeeeah Boyeeeez!

Just a disclaimer: I'm a 6-foot white girl from Wisconsin. It doesn't get anymore ghetto than this my friends.

HRD NOX (Hard Knocks) and JUSBUGN (Just Buggin', below) come to us both from April H. I had to actually look up what a Hard Knock was in the Urban Dictionary: a gangster or sumone who leads a hard life or has been through hard times. Or sumone who can't spell correctly. Stead of treated, we get tricked. Stead of kisses, we get kicked.Buggin': whilen or trippin out. Whilen: to express erratic behavior.Fo' Real: said in conversations to confirm that one is serious and NOT kidding around this time. (Fo' real, Donna).THWIPPP (how many Ps do you really need?!) comes to us from Jen H. She writes: PLEASE tell me this driver ghostrides.... PLEASE? For those of you needing futher explanation... your wip is your car and to ghostride is: The act of putting ones ride in neutral, opening all doors, placing the volume dial on 10, and simply rollin. One can also take the process up a notch and actually exit his/her ride. Once outside of the ride, one can dance and flow to the beat.

An example via YouTube:

*End Note: I've been getting a few emails lately regarding the disappearance of the Most Wanted feature this week. We decided to go exclusively on Twitter for this based on readers suggestions, and because it's been a lot easier for us to manage. But, if you ever have any plates that you want to share with us and you aren't on Twitter, share your stories in the comments. We love them!

At Least Death Only Happens Once

I went to HR&Block for my taxes and all I got was this lousy vanity plate. And a sticker from a Grateful Dead album that even Jerry Garcia himself described as, "None of us liked it." Funny. I would similarly describe your vanity plate. Zzzing!

Well, I prepared my taxes this year using Turbo Tax and all I got was some MJR DEBT (Major Debt). My suggestion: Try cutting back on the extra expenses this year, LIKE VANITY PLATES FOR YOUR VEHICLES.

Both of these plates came to us via the lovely LadyStyx.

Dairy Queen

Maryann W. writes us: Hard to see, sorry. But this is "BRSTFED." As it stands, I don't know if this is a suggestion or a confession? Regardless, my husband mentioned that underneath it should say, "Until I was 30." And, I'll have you know, he was a good enough sport to follow this car WAY past our exit to get this shot. was a GUY driving!

Bwahahaha! I am breaking a couple of my own rules by posting this one since it's quite blurry, but I got quite a kick out of this story. And I thought BQQBS would be the last breast plate I saw!

Monday, April 13, 2009

I see dead people...

...Oh, wait. It's all good. I work at the morgue.

Jamie P. sent us this picture of HEARSE on a Ford Flex. I agree with you Jamie, those cars do look like you could fit a full casket in the back. The odd thing is, why advertise? This one gets the Creepy Seal of Approval.

John #316

Happy Easter, friends!

JOHN316, referring to the bible verse I'm sure. The problem I have with the plate is that people who've never heard of John 3:16 (non-believers, you would have to assume) still have no idea what you are referring to, so your point is a confusing one. We are glad that you are Lovin' the Lord though. Keep the religious plates coming my platerazzi!

Now don't you have a church service to attend?

Saturday, April 11, 2009


Lauren from Montana writes: This car was always parked in front of my apartment complex, and I had to take a double take the first time I saw it. OMG LOL? Really? Come on. After I discovered your blog, my mission was clear, you needed to see this plate! Enjoy!

My mission is clear Lauren: Share this plate to the world! Like, OMG LOL!AWWW yeah. A little hard to read, but AWWW WTF comes to us from the DramaMama. Virginia, you get away with just about anything.
Another blurry photo, I apologize. BRB LOL was sent in by Smoochiefrog. I was all like, IDK my BFF Jill.

Just Imagine Them In Their Underwear

REDNTE (Red Nighty). A nighty? Like the loose, sensuous nightwear for women usually made of sheer or semi-translucent fabrics and trimmed with lace or other fine material, and bows? (Definition via wikipedia. Hence my use of the word sensuous. Ha.) Please, I beg of you, not on a vanity plate. Never. Ever. Eww.

Creeptastic, Kolleen!

Previously, HAYSEXY.

Look, we were trying TOFU a long time ago...

For those of you who have kindly sent me this link, thanks! After about the 10th email I was like, I must post this. It's just too funny.

And now I don't know how this plate that we posted a while ago ever got past the California DMV. Hmmm. Click for the full post.

I Brake For Sweet Tea

When I first saw this one I was like, cross my grates? What does that even mean? And then Lauren M. kindly explained the lovely message on this one for us: There's nothing like Southern hospitality. Telling the person driving behind you to "Kiss my grits," is just so genteel.

Indeed. Y'all sure send me some funny plates.

I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am

I am assuming MC LOVIN was already taken, or this car is filled with McNuggets and runs on Shamrock Shakes.

Stephanie S. sent us WOW GAL: All I can say is, "WOW!"

You know what would be excellent? An L and an E.

Abuv spell check.

Hay Baby, Hay Baby, Hay

This one is kind of hard to make out: It says HAYSEXY. Heather W. writes to us: on a hay truck, obviously! taken in the California central valley. Nothing makes me feel sexier than a truck full of hay, I can tell you that right now.

This one makes me chuckle. Only for a moment though, I promise.

Most Wanted via Twitter for the week of 4/5

Hey guys! I was wondering how to expand this whole Twitter feature, since our following continues to grow, and we are getting quite a few tweets throughout the week. Would you like it if I shared everyone's tweets by tweeting them to everyone who follows? Or do you like the weekly "best of" feature? I just feel so bad for those that get cut from the list, because they are really good too! Let me know how you feel about it in the comments and indicate which method of Most Wanted you enjoy the most. Thanks. Also that twitpic is hilarious @Steggo; Definitely a most wanted!

PrincessPissy@LicensePlteBlah NJ plate: ALJKDUP (all jacked up?) on a truck with enormous wheels.

museummusings@LicensePlteBlah Saw RI Plate: ZZBEE it seems as if we needed to be told the sound represented by ZZ was for bees and not sleeping.

Steggo @licenseplteblah sorry for the fuzzy

dandibandit@licenseplteblah I saw BURITO 5 on my way to Mal-Wart. I LOL'd.

bethanyedwards@LicensePlteBlah Flatbed for a towing company- TOW U K.

kmtetour@LicensePlteBlah CARB MAN, saving the world one carb at a time.

Derdrom@LicensePlteBlah SUMDEY - Cincinnati, in a Bengals frame w/ Who Dey slogan--probably referencing that & (for some reason) reads as some day.

DChi606@LicensePlteBlah "VIOLA" - Does the person play the viola or is her name Viola?

yourjojo@LicensePlteBlah Today I couldn't get a picture of MSHYWD. All I can come up with is "mushy wood", and that's nothing to brag about.

kbrobaseball@LicensePlteBlah SHE-DOG...apparently the driver's a real b*tch, and is proud of it.

Derdrom@LicensePlteBlah CRABBBY - Almost good, but the extra B makes me extra crabby. Parked at a mall in Cincinatti, OH or nearby Florence, KY.

A Cheesy Plate...

Mooooove over! Here comes the Moominator! Donna F. writes: This one loses some of its impact because you can't see the cow print seat covers and steering wheel cover, as well as other general cow-ey sort of stuff.

It's okay Donna, I think we get the general idea from this person's plate and tire cover, but thanks for filling us in on the full "moovelous" experience.

Jesus is my homeboy

Jackpot, Donna! I didn't think after creating a category called Loving the Lord that someone would actually find a LUVIN' JC (Loving Jesus Christ) plate. What can I say? It's divine.

Ask and you shall receive! On that note, I ask you to please join our Facebook Fan Page. Amen.

Always do your reaserch!

Michael M. sent in PRIAPUS to us. At first I was like, huh? but read his email for further explanation. In my stupidity, I thought it had something to do with a Toyota Prius. Boy, was I wrong. I must have missed this one in Greek Mythology 101:

Priapus (Ancient Greek: Πρίαπος) was a minor rustic fertility god, protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens and male genitalia. His Roman equivalent was Mutinus Mutunus. He was best noted for his huge, permanently [*Uhhh see below*], which gave rise to the medical term priapism.

*To read the full definition please see this wikipedia entry. Not for the children!!!

Fart: A Turd Honking For The Right Of Way

PULLMI(finger). That "I" is pronounced like "eye," making this vanity plate: Pull My Finger. They even took a couple extra steps on that hand to make it look like this was someone offering their finger for you to pull. California, your dedication to this message has left me in stitches.

Still, we must not ignore the fact that someone actually drives around in this car. Maybe this is his alternate vehicle? Or maybe this one? Or this one? Can you believe there are this many idiots riding around on the roads?

Oh, don't forget to book your room for this years Fart and Poop On My Vanity Plate Convention, spaces are filling up fast!

Thanks Kimberley P.
