After all of that...
HAGNDAZ (Haggen-Dazs ice cream),

This week I am going to eat nothing but SALADZ (and leftovers, of course).
BUTTAH - MooseNuggette
HAGNDAZ - Erika S.
APPLE PI - Bonnie Z.
CAKE - Heather M.

Kate found this Lovin' the Lord Sunday gem, HVN R HL (Heaven or Hell?). She writes: Welll....hmmmm....lemme think about that for a minute.
Although, I guess this could mean numerous other things... For example, "heaving our hole."
It's a tough job, but someone has to heave that hole.

For everyone who has survived or currently has the Swine Flu (or H1N1 as they are calling it these days), I present to you the SQUEALR from platty. The custom (and I'm pretty sure it's custom) license plate holder reads GO HOG WILD. Oink!
What a terrible time to be a pig fan, eh. *ACHOO*

Sarah sent in 18 N UP (18 and up). I am assuming this is referring to a law that describes how it's illegal to have sexual relations between two individuals when one of the participants is below the legal age to consent to that behavior. In this case, it's 18 years old.
But I am still trying to figure out why this driver would put this on a PUBLIC vanity plate. I'm pretty sure you'll impress NO ONE with this plastered on the back of your car.
Reminds me of this related vanity plate fail: Hide your children.

THKSx2 (thanks times two? Thanks, thanks?) is from Misha H. She thinks, however, that this driver may be giving thanks for another reason. She writes: The alimony payments must be hefty.
Our last plate today comes from MooseNuggette, GVTHNX (Give thanks). That "x" is a bit nauseating, no?

Continuing with our Thanksgiving theme of "food," I have a couple more vanity plate selections for you served hot and fresh from our archives. They are just steaming with plate rage. MmmmMmm!
Kelly T. is submitting her husband's plate, BANANAZ. All I have to say is, "That vanity plate is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"
CHERRY is from MooseNuggette. Really? I wonder if this driver knows what that is slang for?
Our last plate is from Sam. She managed to stealthily catch ONION 4. Fresh, frozen, canned, caramelized, pickled, powdered, chopped, and dehydrated... How does one's obsession with a vegetable get this far?!

This week is Thanksgiving so I though I'd present some vanity plates over the next couple of days dealing with what we Americans will likely be doing this Thursday: Stuffing our faces with FOOD.
PICKLES is from Clayton W. and as you can see it looks a bit funny. That's because it's from Australia. We're glad to see the plate rage has spread world-wide.
Our second plate is from Allison A. It reads KRISPIE, as in Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I only hope you tried to follow this car until doughnuts started to fly out the back. Um, seriously, that would be the best day of my life.
The last plate today is CA-V-R (Caviar) and was captured by April H. This plate really confuses me. What is the appeal of labeling your car with pricey salted fish eggs? Or are you really that smug?

DOXOLOG is from Jason G. I know this is supposed to read "Doxology," meaning a short hymn of praises to God in various Christian worship services. But it looks more to me like "Doxo Log."
Doxo from the Greek word for "glory" and "log" meaning, uh, log. Say hello to the Glory Log everyone!
And then flush it down quickly, okay? No one wants to look at that thing.

Since it's one of my favorite categories, I am going to bring you a few more misinterpretations for your viewing pleasure today.

I believe the only appropriate response to this would be:
It's funny, too, because we only have one other vanity plate from South Dakota on the site and it's about guns. And I thought Virginia was scary. WTF S.D.?
I know there are probably a few of you scratching your heads with your faces all tilted up to the side, so here it is: It says MUFF DIVER. I suggest you *DO NOT* google this if you are one of the confused and just move right along...

SYKO comes to us from a member of our Alaskian platerazzi, MooseNuggette. I assume this plate is referring to this drivers mental status, "psycho." According to wikipedia: Psycho is a slang word for a person who is either psychopathic or psychotic. The term is often considered mildly offensive or derogatory.
Yeah it sounds like a great idea to give a license to someone who frequently loses contact with reality.
Oh, and have I mentioned the delusions and hallucinations? They make driving such a task. Watch out for that giant purple-spotted unicorn near Main Street. It will eat you!

How else is one to inform the masses that they are extremely attractive and adorable? A vanity plate, of course. Our first, IMAQT1 (I'm a cute one), is from Alison B. She writes: This took my breath away... on a number of levels. Ugh...

Gina G. managed to capture a picture of DRUNKY for us. She writes:
Here is another one, I was going to the doctor one day this was parked right outside. I have a feeling the reason this person was going to the doctor because of the a-a-a-alcohol...
How in the world does one get away with having a plate like this? Are all of the laughs worth the nightly roadside sobriety tests? And even if this is your nickname, why on earth would you put it on a heavy piece of machinery that you operate?
I swear to beer I didn't drink God. *hiccup*

Sarah K. sent us CUTHEIR (See you there?).
She writes: My husband took this photo after I pointed out that some people still haven't grasped the three forms of "there, their, they're" I'm pretty sure I learned this in 3rd grade...
I guess they could also cut "heir." Ugh.
Seriously? Where did you get your education? It's EDUCATION. You're going to look really stupid if you spell it any other way (Plate is from LadyStyx).

Queendork76 captured this week's Lovin' the Lord plate, F8HN-HIM. That 8 is making my eye twitch though. F'eight'h in him? I mean, it kind of works, but trying to say that aloud just resulted in spit all over my computer screen. Thanks for that.

John S. managed to snap a picture of this geeky vanity plate, 1 UP. He writes:
I had to resist the urge to head-butt this truck to see if I would get an extra life.
... As in Super Mario Brothers. From wikipedia I learned: These mushrooms have green caps with white spots (originally orange caps with green spots). When Mario picks up one of these mushrooms, he is given an extra life... In some games, these are called "Ultra Shrooms", which replenish large amounts of health.
Ultra geeky, but I kind of like it.

How do I express my ability to show my excessive, self-centered, and immature behavior? Hmm, how can I show lack of consideration for other people, recurrent temper tantrums, an inability to handle the delay of gratification, demands for having one's own way, obstructiveness, and manipulation?? I know, I'll get a VANITY PLATE.
Brianne O. sent in A BRAT and wrote: The little kid in me can't help but respond to this, "I know you are but what am I?"

That's right, it says "his pension." Which means this ex-wife bought a Chrysler minivan with her ex-husband's retirement fund and has decided to brag about it on her van.
Virginia, you make my head want to explode.MooseNuggette sent in WASHIS (was his). This GoldWing motorcycle also has a vanity plate holder which reads: Her Diamond Wing. How romantic!

Crazy Cat Lady Carm sent us this gem the other day. She writes: My son Eric just sent this one... I think this is the best one yet!
Sunday, November 8, 2009
Amanda M. sends us GODSPD. She writes: It looks like it's supposed to be "God speed", but I first read it as "God SPED" (Special Ed) and I thought to myself "Hey! That isn't very nice..."
From wikipedia: Godspeed, as a word, is a wish for a prosperous journey, success, and good fortune... It is also used occasionally in a non-religious manner, intended as a wish for a job to be accomplished quickly.
Yeah, um, godspeed to me so I can get myself out of this vanity plate nightmare.
Saturday, November 7, 2009
NOBOYZ is from LadyStyx. I think this is probably referring to a family with only female children, but you need to understand that this is the lesbian post, so there it is.
Who will we the catch next with our gaydar?
Friday, November 6, 2009
Patricia caught this plate, ADOLPH2, in Kentucky. I mean, does this really mean what I think it does? Adolf Hitler? You have got to be kidding! And did you need to add that 2 because ADOLPH and ADOLPH1 were already taken? Are you serious? Maybe this kid is all grown up? Redonkulous, I tell you.
It's official. I H8 your PL8.

The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. area. Jason G. sent us this plate, 4SKINZ which I assume, based on this driver's decorative ribbon and specialty plate that he is, "For the Redskins."
HOWEVER, Sir, your vanity plate reads "foreskins."

Ah yes, the only reason I plan to have children -- I might need one of their kidneys some day. 1KIDNEY was snapped by Natalie B. who writes: A bit more information than I care to know about my fellow drivers...
Reminds me of Charlie the unicorn's trip around Candy Mountain.
