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!

I never knew about ghostridding...I feel like my education as increased leaps and bounds!! Fo Shizzle. (if I did that wrong it's because I'm a white girl)

Amanda said...

Thanks for moving the most wanted to Twitter! I have some plates coming your way....

Would serve those ghostriders right if they get car-jacked while they're out bustin' moves. I'd pay money to see that!

Aww man, now I'll miss Most Wanted. Sorry guys, I'm allergic to Twitter.
Also, Ghostriding looks so dangerous, omg.

You guys can also see the most wanted from the tweeters over on the left sidebar on the main blog page. If you have one you'd like me to tweet, just email me or something and we'll see what we can do about getting it up on the site or on twitter. Thanks everyone!

These plates were fun to write for. I love cracking open the Urban Dictionary. If you want more ghostriding, just type it into YouTube. Hours of enjoyment.

I'm both crazy white and ignorant, apparently. I truly thought the 'THWIPPP' plate was supposed to be the sound one makes when sticking out their tongue and exhaling, like a 'neener neener' sort of thing. Well, I guess you learn something new every day!

*wipes tears* My first posted blog submission...I'm so proud!

I caught FOW REAL while leaving work. The odd thing, I work in a drug/grocery store in a somewhat upscale area. I do see a lot of vanity plates (because the people there can afford the extra cost), so there could be more *hint hint* LOL

"Thwip" is the sound effect they use in the Spider-man comics when he shoots his webs.

After 3 movies that this is not general knowledge makes me sad. :(

it's all right Pip...that was the first thing that I thought of when I saw that...unfortunately fans of the movies aren't fans of the comic books

I didn't get a picture of it, but I spotted URBUGGN on an Idaho plate on apt date of April 20th.

Ghetto culture's penetration of Idaho is somewhat asymmetric. One of the guys setting up my mattress a while back used to live in Coeur d'Alene and he never heard of the term "Driving While Black." The other guy and I were flabbergasted that it took him a couple years to to figure out that he was even being stopped for DWB in Coeur d'Alene.
