Spreading joy with a howdy ho!

From wikipedia: Mr. Hankey the "Christmas Poo", voiced by Trey Parker, is a talking piece of feces. He first appeared in the first season episode "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo". He emerges from the toilet bowl on Christmas Eve and brings presents to good boys and girls whose diets have been high in fiber. Here is his theme song.

Sure it's funny to act 12, and joke about poop every once in a while, but do you really need to commemorate that on your vehicle's license plate? We think not, but thanks for the laughs Mr. Hankey.

Flush him down but he's never gone. His smell and his spirit linger on. Howdy Ho!

This entire post was a revelation to me. Not just the plate, but the backstory. I completely missed this whole segment of pop culture. But somehow I'm okay with that.

You're not alone Deborah. To me Mister Hanky is a former coworker who used a cloth handkerchief. He blew his nose MANY times a day. would pull trusty hanky, blow, then roll the used hanky up with a flourish and return it to his pocket for future use. GROSS!

I was thinking and still hoping this plate was short for hanky panky.

Got to love your interpretation though! :)

My school's band teacher/theater director is named Mr. Hankey. He gets the Christmas Poo thing all the time. The funny thing is, he watches South Park. :P
