Ohio, You Crazy!

We are just crazy about Ohio, and well, Ohio is just... crazy.

Example 1:
ABNORML (abnormal). Uh, abnormal what? Abnormal lane shifts? Abnormal turn signal patterns? Thanks for the warning.

Example 2:
INSAYN (Insane). This just proves that is far too easy to get a driver's license these days, especially in Ohio. Apparently the DMV isn't too concerned that an admittedly insane person is declaring their mental state on their plate. I guess at least this way we can't say they didn't warn us.

Ex. 1 from Squidrox, Ex. 2 from Nancy.

Insane and abnormal aren't really words you want to see next to "birthplace of aviation"!! (And no, I don't want to buzz that barn!)

Im wondering if driver number 1 is a Young Dr Frankenstein fan.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [to Igor] Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruck's?
Igor: [pause, then] No.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Ah! Very good. Would you mind telling me whose brain I DID put in?
Igor: Then you won't be angry?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
Igor: Abby Someone.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] Abby Someone. Abby who?
Igor: Abby Normal.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] Abby Normal?
Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [chuckles, then] Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?
[grabs Igor and starts throttling him]
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Is that what you're telling me?

I was thinking of Young Frankenstein too. OR Christopher Moore. In his book "Bloodsucking Fiends" there is a character named Abby Normal.
