Happy Wife; Happy Life

LOVMIYF (Love my wife). I really would love to know what's going on here. Did this guy willingly agree to this vanity plate? Was this a surprise me kind of request? Is this some sort of punishment from the lady of the house? Whatever it is, makes me want to puke a little.

Donna F. sent us this one with the message: I wonder if he's got a sign on his wife that says "Love my truck" Ha!

I'm having an "Out of Money" experience.


H82BPOR (Hate to be poor) came to us from Smoochiefrog, who also sent us the next plate.
POFOLKS (Poor folks). Really, the extra cost for this plate was worth it? I'm confused. Maybe it's supposed to mean piss off, folks!? Are they doing vanity plates for free in Maryland now?

I R POOR 2. I are poor because I guess you have to spoke properly to got job. (from Lexi)

Now, let's all join hands and enjoy this financial meltdown together.

Save me from looking at your vanity plates

I finally found a holy roller! If you look closely, you can see that the faded plate frame says "Jesus rules." --Heidi

HE SAVES. Yes, but who is he exactly? I am assuming Jesus, but you could assume just about anything here. Maybe this driver is referring to his thrifty ways? Maybe he shops at Wal-Mart? Or collects aluminum cans? Or Barbies? The world may never know. That is why this weekly feature, Lovin' the Lord, is here to stay. Amen!

Do you tweet? We do.

A Less Polite Version of The Wienermobile

CCK KAR was sent in by Melly L. She writes: Ironically, my friend and I were on our way to a Girl’s Night Out when we saw this fantastic display of chauvinism. We can’t figure out anything else it could be implying. Cick? Cack? Cuck? Ceck? No….

So c*ck car it is!

Oh my.

Here is a link to our infamous wienermobile post. Who wants a hot dog?

Nuttier than a squirrel turd

Amanda over at The Perplexicon (a [really awesome] blog I now frequent daily) sent us this lil' gem the other day. She writes: I saw this in the parking lot at University of Houston... All I thought was "cute." lol.

LIL NUT. So maybe you're a little crazy? Maybe you're lopsided, ahem, down there? Or maybe there's just one lil one?

This plate is from Texas, where I hear things are supposed to be larger, so who knows why it's "lil." It just is, I guess. Sometimes you feel like a nut; Sometimes you don't.

The moral of the story is that if a word can be translated to mean "testicle" it's probably not suitable for a vanity plate. Ya dig?

I'm the most indecisive person I know... I think

So many "creative" plates out there... so little time.

Today's theme is Think Fast - You're Applying for a Vanity Plate.Our first victim of indecisiveness comes from Donna F. CNT DCYD (Can't Decide) just couldn't make up his mind. What a great quality to post on a vanity plate.

I think this might be a DMV snafu more than anything. I mean, this driver might have wanted the word NUMBER, but I can't figure out why. Maybe they're an anesthesiologist? Maybe to confuse the cops?

Officer: *krrrrt* Yeah I have a license plate NUMBER for you to run.
Dispatch: Please give me the license plate number…
Officer: Uh, NUMBER.
Dispatch: Yes, the number.
Officer: No! It's NUMBER.
Dispatch: Yes, sir, they usually are.

Or I could potentially see this as an “I can’t follow directions” kind of mistake. Vanity plate application reads:

What would you like the vanity plate to say (if you would like a number, please leave blank): I want NUMBER

(Plate sent in by platty)

I got your Jeep thing. Now it burns when I pee.

Jeep owners are a unique breed, aren't they? Most of them sport those "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand" decals across their windshields, and the only Jeep vanity plates I seem to get all mention that the car is, in fact, a Jeep. Zzzzz.

Let's get started shall we?
Our first comes from LadyStyx. I just want to clarify that this plate is on a Jeep. I UNDERSTAND, IT'S A JEEP.

Must. Use. Eight. Characters. JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP comes to us from Jennifer Deeeeee.

Sara S. sent in CJEEP GO.

Go Jeep, Go! Go out of my line of vision.

Okay, this driver gets a little credit for the ounce of creativity they somehow managed to squeeze from their Jeep dominated brain. EEP-J omescay omfray isLay. Eshay iteswray:

I saw this plate today and had to take the chance! While I guess it might fall into the "mildly humorous" category, since it was on a Jeep Cherokee the first thing that came to mind was "uh-day upid-stay!"

Osay uetray.

Trunk is full of P00P

A55 comes to us from April M. She writes:

[A55], if it really is supposed to say "ass" I can't imagine who would seriously want to label themselves as such with their license plate. Unless they are labeling that area of their car as the car's "ass."

As we have seen previously, 5s seem to be an alternate for the letter S on some vanity plates. I'm not sure if this is just random luck, or intentional, but whatever it is made me laugh. It's like that shark is screaming, SAVE OUR SEAS, you ass.

Monday, June 22, 2009

Pardon my french

I have a couple more "dad" plates for you guys today. Our first is from LadyStyx who sent in FRYDADY. And the blatantly creepy/funny question that popped into my mind when I saw it was: Whose your fry daddy? Maybe this driver is the head french fry chef at MickyD's? A fan of mini deep fryers? MmmmMmm.

Hey everyone, look how obvious I am.

IM DAD comes to us from Nancy H. How much do you want to bet there is a matching mini-van with the plates IM MOM on it somewhere on the roads of Ohio? And that they live in the same garage? And they make little Mini Coopers at night with vanity plates that read IM BABY??

Knowing the fans of this site, IM MOM will probably be in my inbox tomorrow morning. We really love our platerazzi!

Remember, I brought you into this world, I can take you out of it

Since we shoved our Lovin' the Lord feature to the side for Mother's Day, We thought we would do the same for Father's Day. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

What's better than one dad? TWO of course! TWO DADZ comes to us from Emma T. (who also gets credit for the next photo as well). Faaaabulous!

How do all the daddies get to work in the morning? The Daddy Bus, of course.

Finally we have BST DAD sent in by Kati K. I guess that could also read "breast dad," but I hope that's not what they were going for.

Dad, you're the breast... I mean, best.

A Very Horrible License Plate

Here we have TRIPLE K from Phil C. He writes:

My wife tells this story the best, but here I go.

We were sitting at a streetlight and she looks over and sees "4kkk" on a sign. I didn't see it and wouldn't believe her so we turned around and went back sure enough it did say "4kkk". We wanted to take a picture of the sign so she could prove it to her friends. I pulled in the driveway to go around back to park so we could take pictures out front and there it was the van with the horrible plate.

A few years ago I wanted to get a custom plate for my car and started playing with Star Wars vehicle names. As you can tell most of them were taken and I was told so. However, with "Slave-1" (Boba Fett's ship) the message came back that this plate was considered offensive. I finally decided on "Rouge 5" by the way.

I love your blog it is so nice that someone else besides myself has a weird infatuation with vanity plates.

Wow. How in the world do people get away with this? Only in Virginia, I guess.

Phil also sent in a picture of the side of the van that had this plate. How could someone operate a business like this? This is outrageous, not to mention offensive! Hey Kent, it's spelled Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y C-L-E-A-N-I-N-G, you moron.

Friday, June 19, 2009

Do I make you *randy*? Do I?

Donna F. sent in 3VAH3BO. If you are just as confused as I was, please read her explanation: This belongs to a friend of mine, its on his mini cooper. Read it backwards.

This plate instantly made me think of the Austin Powers movies. Au contraire baby, you can't resist me. Oh behave! Yeah, baby, yeah! YEAHHH comes to us from Bonnie (via Nancy). I either was going to put this plate in this post, or one about Office Space's Bill Lumbergh. Yeahhhh, I'm also gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday, too.

Jen H. sent in GRRR 1. She writes: I think they have anger management issues.

I think they put the "grrrr" in swinger, baby! Yeahhh!

He who laughs last, thinks slowest

Both of today's photos come from LadyStyx. You can tell she's been working hard, because one of the photos from yesterday's post came from her as well. Watch out vanity plate owners, she'll get you. Today's plates are a continuation of the very impatient drivers from yesterday. Our first is CPTN SLO (Captain slow). You know, he's that guy making a 5 minute right turn. Yeah, that guy.

Or, maybe he is referring to the fact he's a little slow in the head?

Look! That sign says, "Slow children at play."

Haha... wait... what?

You know what makes me H8 TRFIC (hate traffic) even more, CPTN OBVIUS? The mind-numbing amount of vanity plates in this state! I can't imagine what it's like driving in Virginia. I don't know if I could survive a day there. Plus, does anyone actually enjoy traffic?

LadyStyx, you are a brave, brave soul.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

You'll never get to work on time, muhuheehahaha!!

GONA B L8 (Gonna be late) was taken by Bonnie and sent in by Nancy. I doubt that any police officer will take this person's vanity license plate as a valid excuse as to why they were going 90 in a 55. Probably has a bumper sticker that reads, "I consider on-time to be when I get there."

Here's some motivation for you, GONA B L8. HUREEUP (Hurry up!) comes to us from LadyStyx. Put the petal to the metal, dude. I'm important and I have places I need to be. What are you waiting for?!

I have a few more impatient drivers for you, but I think I will save them for tomorrow. Stay tuned!

A Face Only A Mother Could Love

Kate sent us U-UGLY-2 (You Ugly 2... You're Ugly Too?).

To this driver I only have one thing to say:

Ready?! Okay!

U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi! You ugly! Woo-woo! You UGLY! Rah!

Does anyone else want to stalk this car until the driver pops out so we can actually see what we're working with here?

Previously... You're Funny... Looking

Monday, June 15, 2009

Dam right.

BVRPLZR (Our first plate from Alabama) comes to us from Rachel. She writes:

I live in NC, so it was a little bit of a relief that this license plate was from Alabama but it was still creeeepy.

Does that say beaver pleaser?! How do people get away with this? I'm not even going to attempt to link to the Urban Dictionary for that definition.

I just have to keep telling myself that beavers are furry mammals that feed off wood. Wait a second, that is still gross. Ew. Alabama, you're going straight to the Hall-of-Shame. Enjoy your stay.

Holy As Swiss Cheese

R U HOLY (Are you holy?) comes to us from Kristin. For the new readers, Sunday is our weekly Lovin' the Lord feature on religious plates, and their somewhat confusing messages. Today's submission is a perfect example of that confusion.

Holy: (adj.) Exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness.

Okay so I'm not holy. But here is a list of things that are (Please feel free to add your own in the comments):

1. Crap
2. Guacamole
3. Cow
4. Moley
5. Mackerel

Crazy Mother Truckers

On the tails of yesterday's post, here we have GONCNTRY (Gone Country) sent into us by Jennifer D. She writes:

This is my first ever Platerratzi shot. I thought it was funny that I found this vehicle in the middle of Toronto - not exactly the country. Love your site.

BBGUNS comes to us from Five Tomatos. This one shot my eye out from just looking at it. An odd choice for a plate, but to each their own. Pass with caution!

Small end note: We've been enjoying the facebook fan love lately with all your "likes" and comments. The plate rage spreads and we love it. Thanks everyone!

Business in the front; Vanity plate in the back

Kate sent us WV RDNEK (West Virginia Redneck?). Southern comedian Jeff Foxworthy defines "redneck" as "a glorious lack of sophistication." Kate also sent this wider shot of the plate:

Why yes, that is a pregnant lady on the tailgate of this pick-up truck. She was later heard shouting, "GET ME SOME PIE!" Very sophisticated.

HEY YAL (Hey, Y'all) comes to us from platty. Almost as good as Kiss My Grits.

All y'all are gonna have ta git us some real good plates, now, ya hear?

Creepy, No Doubt

I'm sort of sensing a theme for the last couple of days: "People I Don't Want To Meet. Ever."

HEYBEYB (Hey Baby) comes to us from Alison B. This might be a Gwen Stephani fan, but could also be that loser from the bar last night, screaming out the side of his truck at you.

DRM LUVR = Dream Lover (Unless you are really into DRM, and then we'll have to put you in a whole other category, nerd.)

Please, please, please do not use the word "lover" in conversation unless your name is Mariah (and even then we'll still think you're a little weird). Doesn't it just give you the creeps? I've warned you about this before, haven't I? (Plate sent in by Leah M.)

Will CREEP 4 Food

This guy rolled up on our first date and I was all like, "AW... HELLLL NO!"

Kristin, active member of the Twitter platerazzi army snapped this one. She writes to us: You want creepiness in 8 characters or less? I found it in 6 characters!

What's even creepier, if that is possible, is that this person drives a over-sized van.
I have a hunch Creepy McCreeperson has lined the walls with blue fur and added mood lighting. Ladies? Any takers?

Either your collar is messed up, or you're just a douche bag

DBAGS 3. D-Bags = Douche bags. From the Urban Dictionary...

1. An object used for vaginal hygiene.
2. A person that is a total moron and doesn't think before he/she speaks or acts.
3. One with an indescribable idiocy, hence stupidity, poor idea of what's cool, possibly an arrogance about them.
4. One with an intolerable personality.

Kind of like Spencer Pratt from The Hills. You feel me, bro?

Wow, and they've got 3. Thanks for sending the plate in Amanda W.

I'm thinking Arby's

RST BEEF comes to us from Erica B.

She writes: I was on a 2nd date with a guy when I busted out laughing in the middle of a street upon finding this gem! I'd been on the lookout for funny plates ever since my friend turned me on to your site... I proceeded to explain to my date what RST BEEF meant and why I had to take a picture to send to a website dedicated to ridiculous vanity plates. Funny, I never went out with him again.

Hey Arby's, do I get any free sandwiches from this post? Hmm? Probably not.

This corresponding gem comes to us from Kolleen. My first name ain't baby, it's Roast. Mister Beef, if you're nasty.

7 hours a day, 7 days a week, 7 months a year

LORD777 comes to us from Alison B. I always thought that 777 got me the jackpot in slots, but apparently it's God's number.

It still amazes me on the sheer number of vanity plates I get in my inbox that have something to do with religion. We'll be doing this category indefinitely. Lord, the vanity plate people love you.

Today's Secret Word Is "Creepy"

Peewee - Something of small stature or size.

I'm guessing this person chose this plate since they drive a smart car. Unfortunately, the term also refers to the guy who had a children's show back in the late 80s who got caught having too much fun in a theater. This plate would be slighly less disturbing if the driver blasted the song "Tequila" from it's speakers at all times.

Bupkis mit Kuduchas

Squidrox writes to us: This guy went FLYING past us on our 45 MPH road. What a goober. Then we caught up with him at the light and I saw the plate. His convertible red sports car doesn't mean bupkiss to me, and maybe he means we don't mean bupkiss to him??

Bupkis, from the wiktionary, is a yiddish term meaning, absolutely nothing; nothing of value, significance, or substance. Often translated as meaning small round fecal pellets, referring to the shape of goat droppings. A colorful usage, though more emphatic expression (in Yiddish more so than in English) is "Bupkis mit Kuduchas," translating roughly to "shivering shit balls."

Thursday, June 4, 2009

That's a funny name

TRD FGSN = Turd Ferguson. I assume this plate was inspired by this hilarious skit from SNL featuring Will Farrell and Norm McDonald.

I know some of you won't get this plate, but I encourage you to watch the linked video above. I laughed so hard when I saw this plate download (sent in by Bryan W). For those of you that do know what I'm talking about: Hey, uh, I speak a little French. You're an assbite, pardon my French. Heh, heh. Also, I wonder if this person drives around in an over sized hat?

And previously: More Cowbell.

211 days until the end of the year

Jennifer D. writes to us:

This one made me think of those "Priceless" MasterCard commercials." Personalized License Plate: $250. Never forgetting your anniversary: Priceless."

Really awesome plate! Did you know that June 3rd is the 154th day of the year? How exciting!! It's also Confederate Memorial Day(?), the day Garret Hobart, 24th Vice President of the United States, was born, AND the day I fell asleep in the middle of writing this post...


Ahem, sorry about that. JUN 3RD is almost as creative as this gem sent in by Kristin:

LCN PL8 = License plate. Stunning work!

Aim Carefully

It says SKEET. I know a lot of you are scratching your heads thinking, well what is so wrong with that? Maybe they're into skeet shooting? I agree, there is nothing wrong with skeet shooting, but this word has taken on new meaning in the recent decade. Warning, this is the link to the Urban Dictionary definition, and I say WARNING, because it's not for children or the easily offended.

Ilyse Rose, from NY, writes to us: I don't think the old couple in the car knows what it means nowadays.

Thank you Lil John. This is the "clean" version of this particular song which features this specific term. Enjoy:

What does a gay horse eat? Haaaaaay!

Donna F. writes to us:

This was on a smart car. I almost crashed my car when I drove by in a parking lot, and parked a mile away from my destination to snap it.

Now that is dedication. Your hard work has paid off.

Now, someone call the fire department.
