When you can't afford that Hummer to compensate.

Note that this ITSHUGE (It's huge) vanity plate is on the back of a Smart Car, one of the smallest on the road. So I wonder what is so huge? Hmmm? Any ideas?

Oh. Wait. Eww.

(Thanks for the plate, platty.)

There certainly is...

We got this email the other day, and thought I would share. Take it away anonymous plate submitter:

This plate I saw yesterday struck me as interesting because is was on a Mercedes-Benz R320 SUV, which is the most vane of all SUVs and also the ugliest. And vanity plates, by there very nature, are vane but it admits it's ugly which isn't vane, unless they were using reverse physiology, in which case it is extra vane. There is a lot going on here.

(This is just more proof that vanity plates are the bane of our existence.)

Tina M. sent this one to us: CANT C (Can't see). Let's see here... You kind of need to be able to see to drive, right? Tina writes:

Spotted this one while out and about today: CANT C. And they let this person drive?

Well, it is Virginia. Maybe they've relaxed the sight test requirement before licensing?

Who wants a slice?

*eye twitch* It hurts. It really does.

(The Pie Plate was snapped by Leora H.)

Also, for your enjoyment I've linked to another "pi" plate here: I Wish I Was Your Derivative, Because Then I Would Be Tangent to Your Curves

Mean People Suck

Emily sent in this lovely Virginia specimen: JERK H8R (Jerk Hater). She writes:

As opposed to the rest of us who just looooove jerks.

I guess someone has got burned one too many times. It's just too bad that their only outlet to express such frustration is a vanity plate on their Lexus.

Foxy Lady?

So as I see it, this driver (V1KSEN... Vixen) can either be a:

1. Female fox, or
2. A malicious woman with a fierce temper (see also: harpy, hellcat)

It's been a while since I've seen animals driving, so I'm going to go with malicious hellcat.

(Thanks for the plate Donna F!)

J.D. captured this photo of NRDYGRL (Nerdy Girl). Because being cool is overrated, and you want everyone to know it.
MooseNuggette snapped DORKY for us. She writes:

Hey little brother, I got your birthday present. It’s something for your car.

Muhuehahaha! *Snort! Haha! *Snort!

Go fetch your dad some grog

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! LadyStyx captured this find specimen of the seas (err road?): PIR8DAD (Pirate Dad).

Anyone else want to see this guy get in a fight with NINJADAD?

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I have an incredible grasp of the obvious.

Some people might say we have a problem with Jeeps. I say the only problem with Jeeps we have, are the uncreative plates screwed on to them by their owners. Take these two prime examples:
EL-JEEP is from LadyStyx. So using "el" instead of "the" was about as creative as this person got.
How can I be obvious and obnoxious at the same time? Add numbers, extra Es, and a star. Perfect. (1JEEEP* is from Heidi)

More Jeep creativity here: I got your Jeep thing. Now it burns when I pee. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Give me a... lobotomy.

William H. sent in this terror of the roadway, GIVME A... as in, "Give me a hummer." Also note the bumper sticker that reads "SIZE MATTERS," ginormous trailer hitch thingy, ladder, and roof spare tire storage.

I'm going to go scream into a pillow now...

Who Doesn't?

I H8 PMS came from Alison B. Obviously, this driver has a problem with PMS. My response to that would be that, yes, most women do hate PMS. But the most important point here is: Most women don't pay extra to express their mensuration problems on their Corvettes.
Robert W sent in PMS-727 with this note: Personalized? Who knows. Unfortunate - yes!

PMS - 7 days a week, 27 hours a day.

A previous public menstruation lover, for your enjoyment.

All up in yo grill

Yeah, nothing gets me more jazzed than my Crest Glide Comfort Plus. DON'T EVER FORGET IT.

Really people??

(N2FLOSS [Into Floss] comes to us from Heidi [Thanks!])

Stephanie from Spelling Disasters sent us IN DEBT. She writes:

My daughter & I spotted this little, yellow Hummer parked at Ross Dress For Less yesterday. I guess with the high gas usage and over-the-top sticker price of this behemoth, the owners have been forced to discount shop. Poor babies.

Yeah, it must be terrible.

Was HAIRBALL taken?

Keith S. sent in CAT SPIT. What the what?? I have never in my life heard anyone talk about a cat's spit, so when I saw this on a vanity plate it struck me as odd.

Now I've heard someone talk about bull spit, but I think they were just trying to avoid cursing. I'm not even spitting you.


So it's a new year and we (Mr. and Mrs. HLP) need to update you on a couple of things regarding our blog. We have moved to a new city, and things have picked up, so we are sort of limited on the amount of time we spend working on the blog (specifically email -- It's just grown so quickly). So to make things easier on ourselves, (and because we want to continue bringing you the most hilarious plates on the internet) we've made a few changes:

-Personal e-mail replies cannot always be guaranteed (we will try our hardest though!)
-Notification that your plate is posted on a certain day cannot always be guaranteed (Again, we will try our hardest!)
-Posting on the weekend will be discontinued. I know, this means no more Loving the Lord Sunday, BUT we will post some of our favorite religious plate fails during the week occasionally.

Our goal has always been to provide a place where we can all share in our plate rage and laugh a little, and it will continue to be just that. Thanks for your understanding. We love our platerazzi!

-Mr. and Mrs. HLP

A match made in meat heaven

H8MEAT (from Donna F.) "meet" your match:
MEATMBL (Meatmobile; From Kolleen).

Perhaps this is the start of the very first vegetarian vanity plate war?

Just popin' around

NYC POPE is from Joe F. I am pretty sure that the pope lives in the Vatican, and not New York City. I guess this cold also be "Nice Pope," but that is still really odd too, right? Or maybe this person thinks they are the pope of New York? I'm pretty sure you'd need a better looking car than a Saturn...

Saturday, January 9, 2010

I know, right!?

SRSLY is internet slang for "seriously."

Reminds me of our friend, the O RLY owl.

Thanks for the plate Heather A.

Sounds like a drunk clown

Kristy S. sent us BOOZIE. What is it with people just begging to get pulled over? Maybe Boozie is this driver's nickname? Unfortunately, if it is, the rest of us just think you're a drunk... Driving a car... FAIL.

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Because I am more important than you

Kolleen sent us this PT Cruiser's plate, KTHXBA1 (KTHXBYE). Which translates from internet-speak to "Okay, thank you, bye." It's sort of the equivalent of STFU when you are trying to make a quick exit. Nice, eh?

Over the Shoulder Boulder Holder

GETBRAS (Get Bras?) is from platty. I'm not quite sure what this vanity plate is all about. Is this driver a bra sales(wo)man? Are they bitter about the no-bras hippie movement? Do you "support" your man-friendship and want to promote like-relationships with others?

Whatever the interpretation, it's quite odd, and it make us chuckle!

Time Saver For Delinquents

Alison B. sent in this lovely vanity plate (sorry for the blurriness, this one was just too funny). It reads HIOFCER which, if you need the interpretation, is "Hi, officer!" (Could be "High Officer" too, but that just opens up another can of worms, doesn't it?)

She writes: I love the 'taunting' tone of this plate...

Do you really get pulled over so frequently that you need to say your greeting on a vanity plate? Jeez, I'd hate to see this driver's ticket history.

Ah munna eat choo!

RAAWWR comes to us from Five Tomatoes.

I was kind of scared of this one at first but then I discovered that rawr means "I love you" in Dinosaur. I'm not even kidding. So fierce!

Like a Sun God, but for Butts.

Jeff W. sent in this week's Lovin' the Lord plate (snapped by a friend of his). I don't know what this is supposed to mean... But God? But God won? There was one interpretation I kept coming back to though:


Ha! Oh Lord of all butts! Deliver us from constipation!

Oh no you di-int!

From my favorite self proclaimed crazy cat lady, Carm, comes OH SNAP. She writes this lovely story:

My son was in an apartment complex for work... met this nice gentleman relocating from Vermont to Buffalo, NY. Asked him if it was OK to photo this plate... and then got him signed up for Cable/Phone/Internet... a triple play! A plate to boot!!!

More like a quadruple play, if you ask me. This story just warms my little HLP heart.

Better than the whole one I guess

Kelly M. shared this photo with us, HALFAZN (Half-Assin'?). To "half ass" something means to do a job poorly, at say, 50% the quality it should have been done. Glad this driver isn't ashamed to be so up front about it. Kelly also included this photo of this driver's rear-view mirror decoration:
Well, to that I say spell out I-H-O-P and then say "ness."

Happy New Year my platerazzi!
