I moved here from Canada and they think I'm slow, eh?

Keith S. sent in YA IMSLO (Yah, I'm slow). "Slow" might be referencing this driver's speed, however, I'd like to think it references his mental state. From the urban dictionary:

slow: not fast in the mind.

Trust me dude, you'll get this joke in like 5 minutes.

False Advertising

LadyStyx sent in D3NT MAN (Dent Man. Yes, that 3 is supposed to be an E). She writes:

This was on a work truck for a body shop. Gotta love the fact the plate's dented...

The plate... is dented! HA! Hey Dent Man, I know a guy who is really good with dents. Give me a call -- I'll hook you up.

Seafood with Street Cred

Michelle sent in LOBSTAH (Lobster). I don't know why I think this is funny, but it is. I just imagine it's very hard to use a turn signal when your hands are gigantic claws.

Plus there is something a bit charming about that spelling, no? Makes you want to spit on your screen a little.

Beth sent us RCWIDO (Rich Widow?). She writes:

I parked next to this car at Target this weekend. Besides being just plain wrong, my thought was, "You claim to be a RCWIDO (Rich Widow), and yet that's the car you choose to drive?" Yikes!

Just wrong.

MKSUCM is from, well, read the e-mail:

NO! It can't mean THAT!! Who would put such a thing on their car? Of course, it is on a Cadillac Escalade and Cadillac drivers often seem to have an over-inflated self-image, but, still....NO! I refuse to believe it! someone help me out here!

Keith "now I have to wash my eyes out with bleach" S.

Someone help me too, because I do not want to interpret this plate for those that aren't getting where this misinterpretation is going (and I hope that is what this is, a misinterpretation). Esh, Virginia. For shame!

MISERY is from Kati. According to the dictionary, MISERY is:

a state of great unhappiness and emotional distress

Awesome. I hear you like company too!

Ran into my Ex. Put it in reverse and ran into him again.

Keith sent in CRZYWFE (Crazy Wife). He writes:

Interpretation wholly based on who is driving the car.

I agree. If there is a woman driving this car I'd say she's been tricked by a very sneaky, mean husband. If there was a dude driving this car, I'd say it's time to find a good lawyer. Either way, it doesn't end well. Fantastic find for the WTF category though!

Excuse my french

Jami (from Date Wrecks) sent us this Georgia peach, CHIKMAG (Chick Magnet). She writes:

He was at least sixty years old, bald, and about 4' tall. Bless his little heart! I'd like to say that MAYBE back in the day the Chrysler LeBaron was a chick magnet, but really... I don't even think it was back then.

It's like I've time traveled to the worst part of 1995.

Congratulations! On pissing the world off!

I really hope this car was the one that this car was talking about. Anyways, WINNER is from Carrie. She writes:

I saw this in [Oregon]. Funny, my first thought was, "loser."

Mine too.

The fiberglass makes my stomach itch.

Alison B. sent in 8URVETT (Ate your 'vett). "Vett," of course, meaning "Corvette." You see this is a Dodge Viper. A viper also being a venomous snake with long fangs. Alison writes:

Hope it tasted good!!!

I do have one request though, Mr. Viper, Sir-- Could you start with the Corvettes with vanity plates please?

My other car is an AUTOBOT

Today we will be looking at a few plates from the popular toys, Transformers. Justin sent in today's first plate, DCPTKON (as in Decepticon, from the Transformers). Was Megatron already taken?
This plate seems a little more believable, WITWIKY. The Witwicky family members are fictional characters from the Transformers universes, and are the closest human allies of the Autobots. (Plate is from Laura P.)
Another DSEPTCN (Decepticon)?! And it's on a PT Cruiser? You've got to be kidding me! There is no way a Decepticon would turn into something as lame as a PT Cruiser. Sorry. Totally not believable. (Plate from Saint N.)

Anyone have an Optimus Prime plate to share? Although, OPTMSPRM looks like something I wouldn't put on a vanity plate either.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I will bite your head off, regardless.

PMSDIVA (PMS Diva) comes to us from Saint N.

PMS, meaning: Pre-menstrual Syndrome or the difficulties associated with menses.

And Diva, meaning: Selfish, spoiled, and overly dramatic.

Uh, thanks for the warning?

I'm only speeding because I really have to poo.

Alison B. sent us POOLADY (Poo Lady). She writes:

Really... she didn't smell that bad...

Alison also sent another photo (not pictured) of the back of this car that helps us out with the real interpretation, which indicates this is a Pool Lady; as in, she plays pool. Pool Lady FAIL!

It's too bad, lady-- You're just one L away from not being the poop lady.

Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Looking

Laura P. sent in this lovely plate: SVELTE. Svelte as in, "attractively or gracefully slim; slender." She writes:

This was on a college campus, but in the students defense, it was in the employee parking area. So who exactly is this "svelte" professor?

Oh wait, I just received this e-card from her:

Classy, like boxed wine.

Missy writes to us:

This classsy person had a front-row parking spot at Macaroni Grill. The extra S, for me, really puts the "ass" in classsy.

There is a difference between being classy and telling no one, and trying to be classy and telling everyone, no?

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Ask me about my stimulus package.

Tina M. sent us this B1GPKG (Big Package?). As in, small car (MINI Cooper), big package, maybe? Virginia, how does this stuff get approved? I am sure this driver only got this plate so he could say, "Hey, I saw you staring at my big package!"


Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Yes we can!

Melanie B. sent in NOUCANT (No You Can't). She writes:

Had to send this one --- parked outside of Hooters. (So apt!)

We don't get many plates from Alabama it seems, but when we do, they are always *so* great.

Pi ARRR Squared

Tina M. send in today's first plate, snapped by her husband, Ray. I had to stare at this one for a while, I cannot lie. It says "pirate." How you ask? 3.14 is a shortened version of the number "pi." Put it all together and you get PI-R-Eight... Pirate. A smart pirate, at that. Yarrr!
So many pirates driving cars, so little time, I tell you. Heidi sent us BK BERDS (Blackbeard's). In case you don't know, Blackbeard was a notorious English pirate. Was he also known for his notorious English? I could have used a few more consonants in that plate.
AVASTYE (either the worst spelling ever of AVAST or AVAST YE) is from Jenna Lee A. According to wisegeek, avast means:

... to stop or desist... Avast should be used to attract attention, much in the way that someone shouts “stop” to a driver who is at risk of colliding with something.


Friday, March 5, 2010

You stop laughing right MEOW.

CTZMEOW (Cat's Meow) comes to us from platty. Cat's Meow is an expression referring to something that is considered outstanding.

A truck is usually associated with manliness in some respects, but this plate is screaming crazy cat lady, no? Outstanding, indeed!

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Why yes, I am that awesome

Alright, put on your thinking caps. 26Z4u comes to us from Jenny O. Can you figure out what this brain tickler is? Too-six-zee-four-you?

That's right, it's "Too sexy for you."

My only response is: Not in that car! Hi-yo!

STFU you delicious pizza, you

Anonymous submitter writes:

I went to pick up my $10 Papa John's pizza yesterday and I found this monstrosity parked outside. Glad I opted to carryout. What kind of turd drives a car with SHUT UP plates?

A stinky, stinky one that doesn't want tips. Thanks for sending in the plate!

Only you can prevent forest fires (caused by the devil)

666 comes to us from Jeff P. As in, 666 -- the number of the beast. I think what humors me the most about this photo is this driver's choice of plates to put this number on, particularly, a Smokey the Bear plate. So, in summary:

If you could, try and prevent forest fires, but please, worship the devil as you do so.

No duh!

Jessica B. sent in ITSNXLR. At first I got this plate and was like, "It's an elixir?" And then I realized it was on a Cadillac XLR: It's an XLR, DUH! Although after all that mind numbing thinking, I'm going to need an elixir. Make it a double.Here is another DUH plate, KATLAK. Not only have you butchered the word "Cadillac," but you've went ahead and posted it on your car. (from Lauren at the Perplexikon)

Guess what kind of car this plate is on? A Porsche Cayenne. Get it? Cayenne pepper! I know, it hurts. (Plate via Amanda)

I'm going to take that elixir now, and then scream into a pillow.
