Due some recent happenings and mostly a lack of time, we are going to stop posting to this blog until further notice. It saddens us deeply to have to throw in the towel like this, but we know that our kick-ass platerazzi (that's you) will understand. We thank you from the bottom of our plate-rage filled hearts for supporting us, sending us photos, and making us laugh daily. We can't even begin to tell you how much we love doing this site and how we wish we had hours and hours to spend on it. We will keep our Twitter and Facebook pages open for anyone who wants to share photos via those sites, and encourage you to do so. We hope to be back real soon. In the mean time, here are some of our favorite categories for you to browse [below], and check out our favorites on the right sidebar. You are the best.

Virginia, we will miss you.

See you on the flip side,
Mr. and Mrs. HLP

Bee Yourself

LadyStyx sent in MIBGNU. She helps us out with this interpretation: Am I Buggin' You? On a yellow VW Beetle.

The answer is an unequivocal YES.

YOLK is from MooseNuggette. She writes: I thought this one was funny. Hope you like it…or hate it a lot!

I guess I would have to say I love to hate this one.

Taylor D. sent us BUZZZZY. Are 4 Zs really necessssary?

Constipated people don't give a crap

AWWCRAP (Aww Crap!) is from Shaina. Aww crap is something one might say if their license plate for their Acura TL came back from the DMV with the phrase AWWCRAP on it.

Why ruin such a nice thing?

I don't even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack.

NICERAQ (nice rack) is from Jenny D.

For some reason I highly doubt this person is into coat racks, gun racks, bike racks, or antlers. The phrase "nice rack," as we all know, usually refers to boobies, which is not creepy at all, is it ladies?

When Dootie Calls

DOOTIE was captured by the lovely Amanda W.

Besides the obvious interpretation of "poop," I was trying to think of other explanations for this plate, but I all the other ideas I came up with were crap. Heh.

Your vanity plate sucks

BDA BNG1 (Bada Bing!) is from platty. Bada bing is a phrase often used to imitate the sound of a drum roll and cymbal crash after a joke. Isn't that also the name of the strip club in the HBO series, the Sopranos? Yep.

Your vanity plate sucks, ZZZINNG! (Plate snapped by Candice).

And so do your stock choices! BOOOYAH! (From TheWordWire).

I laughed so hard when I saw it.

Very few plates are put into our actually funny category, and this one from Sarah fits the bill -- TWSS (That's what she said). She writes:

Ok, I'm a huge Office fan and this actually made me laugh. A good TWSS goes a long way!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this guy pulled out in front of me the other day...

Is Never Classy

TRASHY comes to us from Alison B. Trashy, as defined by Merriam-Webster means:

1 : being, resembling, or containing trash : of inferior quality

2 : indecent

Or as defined by the Urban Dictionary:

A combination of the names Tracy and Ashley. Both Tracy and Ashley must be marginally slutty to go as "Trashy."

I think I'll stick with the Urban Dictionary definition for this one.

I prefer shoes with lights and velcro straps.

Tom M. sent in VLCRO (Velcro). He writes:

I can understand the "Animal Lover" vanity plate, but pledging your undying devotion to hook & loop technology? WTF?

Jennifer D. can also contribute to this phenomenon of drivers' devotions to hooks and loops:

LadyStyx too:

Because how else am I going to fasten these shoes?!

Between the F and the H spot

Matt sent us this plate from across the ocean, G 5POT. That 5 is supposed to represent an "S" which makes this "G SPOT." He writes:

In England, vanity plates (or as we call them, personalised number plates- I know, not quite as snappy) aren't very common and are usually pretty terrible. But for me, this one I saw during a visit to London just hit the spot.

Proof that it does exist, at least as a license plate.

Well, Virginia is for lovers.

Had to share GLRY HOL (Glory Hole) with you from the FailBlog. I am guessing that this person doesn't know what that is slang for, do they? Or hell, they probably do.... This is Virginia we are talking about! Huzzah!!

Nothing left to lose

Candice sent in PHREDUM. Yes, that is supposed to say "Freedom."

Maybe this driver was going for something like, "Free to be dumb?" Free to be dumb, as in, free to own an obnoxious yellow gas guzzling SUV with accompanying stupid vanity plate? I think that works better, don't you?
