Get smashed

Happy Halloween! We're going to celebrate today with our favorite gourd, the pumpkin.Or as MooseNuggette points out, this could mean something totally different: Maybe the guy pimps his relatives?

Oh how clever! Your car is orange! I haven't seen this before. Oh wait...

I have.

I think G8 PUMKN is supposed to mean "Great Pumpkin," but maybe you have one that guards your gate? Try an "R" next time (pirates will be grateful). Thank you Chevy for creating a color that inspires idiocy on vanity plates. I appreciate that.

Not pumpkin related, but we're on our last days of Halloween, so I thought this last one was appropriate, TRK TRET (Trick or Treat? I know, it's a stretch). Too bad this plate is only relevant one day of the year.

Hope you have a G8 time trick or treating.

Don't knock on Death's door. Ring the doorbell and run. He hates that.

Continuing in our Halloween spirit LadyStyx managed to capture 6FTNDR (Six Feet Under). In case you didn't know, that is the term for being dead, referring to a grave dug six feet under ground. Pleasant.

MORB1D is from MooseNuggette. Why yes, that bumper sticker does say "I Brake For Cemeteries." Quite morbid indeed. I can only hope the driver of this vehicle blasts The Monster Mash at deafening levels where ever they go.

Trick or treet, smell my vanity. It smells great, doesn't it?

Hopefully you'll see some of these characters on your doorstep this Halloween begging for treats. Too bad these specific people are stuck with the plates all year long. On with the creepy!

Yes, Lucifer (aka the Devil) drives a truck. You know what they say, don't you? The road to hell is paved in POORLY ABBREVIATED VANITY PLATES.

I knew of a 1985 Chevy dubbed "the ghost." It was called that because it just wouldn't die.

I'm terrified. Dark Dragon? Wooo I am so scared of your avatar! I wonder if you know Albi the Racist Dragon?
Might want to get that LOOKED at. Ha HA.

People, I have mountains of these. The Halloween Creep Fest continues tomorrow.

Do not pass me on the right or I will EAT YOU NOM NOM NOM

Talk about frightening - these plates have creepy written all over them.

I B1TE is from our friend up north, MooseNuggette. This car kind of looks like it'll make a meal out of your bumper, doesn't it? Kind of appropriate, but still, I would not want to meet this driver.
Virginia's leading platerazzo, LadyStyx, also found this disturbing bite plate, BITE BAC (Bite Back). First, as a person driving a mini van, when do you have people people publicly biting you? And second, if some psycho is biting you, what would possess you to bite back? If you have a personal preference for this sort of "behavior," a vanity plate on your caravan is probably the wrong place for it.

To us, nothing is scarier than your vanity plate

Brianne O. sent in B-SKIRD (Be Scared?) and writes: Oh, yes, I'm so skird of rogue little blue cars!

I'm can't say I'm really afraid of this car either. Now, if the back was filled to the brim with stupid, misspelled personalized license plates... that would be a different story.

This week we are going to post a few more "spooky" plates leading up to Halloween, the skiryest of all holidays. I hope you fear them as much as we (and our spell check) do(es).

Monday, October 26, 2009

Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9.

Kara writes to us: I took this picture with my cell phone last year in Tennessee, near Gatlinburg. My husband and I couldn't figure it out, is it named after her dog? Or is she pro the death penalty? I guess we will never know.

Here's a tip for this driver: If you put the word "killer" on your vanity plate, people are going to think you are, in fact, A KILLER.

So *very* creepy.

I probably would have gone with something that didn't have wood panels

Meg G. sent in GODS PT to us for today's Lovin' the Lord Sunday. And yes, that is a PT Cruiser. Funny, it's also white which some might refer to as a "heavenly" color.

I thought God might choose a car with a little more class (zzzing!), but you never know. I mean, Jesus drives a black Escalade.

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Don't act like you're not impressed.

Melanie writes: On the way to Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman to right ourselves with God... Found this... Laughed inside... Catholics like it quiet.

From the wikitonary: Arrogant: [Adj.] Having excessive pride in oneself.

I guess a vanity plate was the next logical step, eh?

So basically, you hate hating haters.

I am delighted to bring you this batch of H8 plates today. STP H8TN is from Katie O. That extra T makes my head spin. I mean, it's bad enough you use the 8, but last I checked "eight" includes an ending T. Maybe they are starting a new campaign against Tennessee? Stop. Hate. Tennessee.

NOH8N (No hatin') is from Gina T. I would have to disagree with this plate. YES IH8. STOP H8N (Stop Hatin') is from Tracie. She writes: They have a good reason for having this plate; they drive like a jackass and incur a fair amount of hate from me.

Hahaha, I can't stop "loving" this photo. Kerstyne writes: I saw this car while on campus and couldn't resist. I guess the DB that the car is covered in stands for some sort of purse company, but all I could think was Douche Bag.

Mmm, this grape haterade is *so* delicious.

I don't speed. I just get there faster than you.

Here are the comments from the submitter of SPD TKT (Speeding Ticket):

Yep, it’s mine - I just get so many speeding tickets all the time...cops get a kick outta it. $1000 every 6/mo for insurance, meh.

There seems to be an easy fix for this.

PBFOT is a little trickier. Let me see if I can help you out. Pb is the 82nd element, lead. FOT, I assume, is supposed to mean foot. Put it together and you have Lead Foot. And I'm pretty sure most of the cops pulling you over will not think this is funny. (Photo snapped by Bonnie Z.)

And finally, another user-submitted photo from Dawn:

I can’t believe that you don’t have one TN tag in your collection. . . So I am sending you one – mine. And, yes, I pick one up.

Aaaaand Tennessee enters the game with a perfect addition to the vanity plate Hall-of-Shame. Congrats.

OMG! OMG! OMG! ... wait... I forgot.

I've got to hand it to California for allowing special characters on their vanity plates: hearts, stars, plus signs and, yes, even hands. OMG JK is from Kendall, and I think the hand here is necessary because it adds that extra pause and attitude needed for its interpretation, and eventually, its immediate reversal:

Oh my god!! *jazz hands* ... Just kidding.

It's funny, but I would still be terrified to get anywhere near your car with my vehicle. Love tap, anyone?

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

BOCH, please

Photo credit goes to Jean for FNBOCH, which I assume means effin' beotch. *shakes head in disappointment*

Gentlemen? Any takers?


Didn't think so.

Don't be a gas-hole.

Today's plate (EF-OPEC) I stumbled upon randomly reading blogs, and when I saw it, I was delighted. The owner, Tom M. has gratefully offered his pictures, and his story to our readers. He writes:

I'm part of a test program of electric Mini Coopers, there are 500 of us in CA, NJ & NY. I just got the plates a few days ago and I have had so many people beep and give me the thumbs up I can't believe it. I even have seen two people taking pictures of it while I'm driving, crazy.

That's right my friends, it's completely electric. Totally. freaking. sweet. As someone who is quite fond of Earth, I salute your efforts in advancing this technology and sharing your story. I don't usually say this about vanity plates, but I love it; It's like icing on the cake. Thanks for sending the pictures in, Tom. You can check out his blog of #250 here.

Happy Alaska Day, Lord.

Yes, it's Alaska Day. It's also Lovin' the Lord Sunday. Let's combine the two for a wild party, shall we? Since I have only one platerazzi (maybe two) from Alaska, you won't be surprised that all of our plates came from MooseNuggette. She does an excellent job, however, bringing us the finest they've got.

I think this one is supposed to say Look To Him, but when you start taking out all those vowels, people can get creative, if you know what I mean.

(One Way, Jesus Christ?) Also, do not go the wrong way down a one way. Bad idea.

Thanks M'Nuggette!

I'm still hot. It just comes in flashes now.

The theme of today's post is hot women with children. Scratch that. The theme of today's post is OMG WHY?!! Think of the children!!

And yes, nothing screams "foxy" like "grandma." (Photo credit to Sarah W.)

SXYMOM (Sexy Mom) is from MooseNuggette. She writes: Is this really something you want your kids to say?

More mother lovers here: If driving was easy they'd call it YOUR MOM and Your Mom Goes To College.

Friday, October 16, 2009

We're so hot we make fire stop, drop, and roll.

BYG SEXY (Big Sexy?) is from LadyStyx. Here's another plate where there are similar duplicates on the roads. Coincidentally, the are all from the state of Virginia, and as you will read, there's at least one more. Maybe they are wrestling fans? Or they love this guy? However, I think most of us are left thinking: Really?!

Donna F. sent in BIG SEXZ (Although it looks to me at first glance like Big Sexes, whatever that means [ew]). She writes: His other car's license plate reads "BIGSEXY". Im not sure what he'll do if he gets a third car.

In the nick of time @theschalb managed to catch yet another Big Sexy. How many variations of this are out there? This is Insane, with a capital I. And yet, not even the slightest bit sexy. Funny how that works, right?

Your presence is my pain.

PAIN was snapped by Taylor D. I don't understand this plate at all, just because there is so much mystery behind it, but its peculiarity makes me chuckle. Definitely a great contribution to the "Just Odd" folder.

So what are you? A major pain? Pain the neck? Pain in the a$$? Are you in pain (And in that case, should I call a doctor?)? Are you bringin' the pain?

One thing is for sure, my eyes are screaming in pain after staring at this one too long.

Giving 100% of my 50.1%

When I receive not one, but two plates that are basically the same, and totally eye-roll worthy, I just have to post them. It's amazing to me that at least two people (oh and here's one more: I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am) thought this idea for a vanity plate was golden. We beg to differ.

ABVAVG (above average) was captured by Kolleen. Personally, I think this plate should say something more like, Far From Normal.
Our second above average citizen was snapped by LadyStyx. My question to this driver is, how can you be above average in a Honda Civic? Huzzah.

Yeah well, I'm on the cutting edge of mediocrity, but I don't have a vanity plate to commemorate it.

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

I'm sorry people are so jealous of me.

Ah yes, NV. For some reason if people can say something with 2 letters, instead of 4, it is automatically popular for a vanity plate. H8, CRE8IVE, and QT are some others (that's a whole other set of posts my friends...). U NV ME (You envy me) is from Donna F. I think most people would say they don't envy someone driving a Scion with a Jamestown vanity plate.

Interesting, it's another Scion. This one comes from JP, and as you can see this one is green. Get it? Green with envy. Man, that is so cre8ive.
Finally we have NUTN2NV (Nuttin' to envy) from Kayleigh B. I believe "nuttin'" is supposed to mean "nothing" in this case. And I guess this driver is right, but why advertise?

I freaking pwn you

Summon your inner geek (go ahead, I'll wait) and enjoy these extremely 133+ plates I've hand picked for you today.

PWNZ GAS is from Colleen S, who informs me this was on a Toyota Prius (a hybrid). According to wikipedia, pwn is a leetspeak slang term derived from the verb "own", as meaning to appropriate or to conquer to gain ownership. The term implies domination or humiliation of a rival, used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated (e.g., "You just got pwned!").
We must thank our RPGAMERs for such a s00perb linguistic dialect. RPGAMER was snapped by Squidrox. I like how this person is so proud of their nerd-dom.
PWNNOOB is from sara-liz. A n00b, according to the urban dictionary is an inexperienced and/or ignorant or unskilled person. Especially used in computer gaming. So basically, this person is stating something like:

"Sir, I dominated you based on your lack of experience in this particular skill, specifically, driving. Now use your signal, and kindly remove yourself from the passing lane." kthxbye.

No, but I have some milk

I can't believe it's Lovin' the Lord Sunday again already. Time flies when you have cake! Both of today's plates come from LadyStyx.

GTJZUS probably means Got Jesus or Get Jesus, but I like to think he comes in a Grand Touring edition.
GTF8ITH (Got Faith? Get Faith?) is really making my eye twitch. It looks more to me like Got Feightith. FEIGHTITH?

Excuse me, I have to clean the spit off my screen now.

Nailed it!

Krista writes:

I saw this car at the drive-thru at taco bell and thought it should've read "big balls" because that's what this guy had to have to put that on his plate.

Maybe BIG WOOD's a lumberjack? Although, Krista, that probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind when people see this plate. They are probably thinking the same exact thing you thought. How does this stuff get approved?? I guess the Ohio DMV can't catch them all.

Friday, October 9, 2009

I love men. Wait a second. Drop that N. That's better.

Our first plate today comes to us from The Grammarphile, NO HUBBY. Hubby, I assume, is referring to "husband." I'm not sure if this is a result of bitterness or if it's a blatant advertisement, either way, it's ineffective.
LadyStyx captured M HRTLSS which looks a lot to me like "Ms. Heartless." Gentlemen? Any takers?
On with the male bashing! 4GETHIM (forget him) was sent in by Donna F. You can't really forget about Him if you've dedicated your vanity plate to Him, can you?

Here's an idea: Maybe you're single because you can't spell SINGLE. Picture was captured by our good friend Joe F. And if you ask me, SINGUL sounds like more of a evil-doing sea bird.
