broadcasting your biznass on your bumper.

i'm taking a shower this morning, going about my getting ready routine...and on the radio, i hear them talking about a woman is NJ who is being forced by the state to return her vanity plate for her car.


because this is it. i for one applaud the lady for her ingenuity. also, because she said this when she found out she couldn't keep riding dirty....

"It's a plate. It's not a word really. It's made up, and if you want to get technical, it's spelled b-i-o-t-c-h."

hahaha, i love that even she acknowledges that she spelled it wrong. or maybe there's already a BIOTCH plate, and that's who narced on her....anyhoo.

you can read the whole article HERE, but it got me to thinking...what's the deal with the words on your license? i kinda feel like vanity plates are like tramp stamps for cars. occasionally...they work for the person/car. but mostly....they're trashy. and lame. like you got drunk and rolled up the county tag office going "yo, i'm getting me the FLYEST car ever. so put FLIEZT on my tag...cuz someone already has FLYEST."

my sis and i have a running joke...anytime we see awesome plates, we'll try and snap a photo to send each other...or at least text the ridiculousness.

cross my heart, these are legit plates i've spotted around town. no google involved.

this was parked in front of me, at where else....but walmart. i love a spicy drummette as much as the next girl...but come on!! hot wing?! on your car?? not cool sir....not cool.

the sis has also spotted a 'SKITLEZ" plate...apparently, you can't just taste the rainbow, you gotta drive it.

this past weekend brought the best vanity plate thus far into my bath and body works.

really?! topless girl?! on your chrysler SEABRING?!? i know the car's a convertible...but still. this is in no shape or form okay. especially since the lady who got out of the car was at least 45...and not that hot.


please tell me i'm not the only one with a love/hate relationship with vanity plates!

hahaha I can't believe they are making that woman give back her plates! Maybe they should have thought about it before they let her get them if it's that big of a deal. I do love reading personalized plates!!

Today on the way to work I saw a big red pickup truck loaded with UGA paraphanalia. The license plate read "JEWISH." It was like an oxymoron on wheels. Or maybe just a regular moron.

Salt said...

That last one is THE BEST vanity plate I have ever seen. Especially the part about the princess license plate frame.

The best one I ever saw around here was this guy on the highway who had "poofter" as a license plate. I didn't even realize that it was an actual word until my friend who I was with googled it later. I won't say what it means here because I've really already said too much, but let's just say that if Jersey makes that lady return her Bioch plate, Maryland should definitely make this guy return his.

Wow, totally classy. haha.

Sweet Southern Prep said...

That is hilarious, and so classless. I wonder what her husband thinks...if she has one.

Claire Kiefer said...

They are totally ridiculous!! I mean, WHY? Tplsgrl is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time, though!

Erin said...

Pffft. I wouldn't turn that thing in if I was creative enough (and my state was dumb enough) to pass that one through the DMV. I would have claimed that it was just an abbreviation for my love of BIOCHemistry. Because really, who doesn't love a good discussion about quaternary folding of proteins? I know I do.

PS - I wish comments would allow pictures b/c I JUST took a pic of "4DALE88" and it rests safely in my phone.

i'm so all over that. a kid in my neighborhood drives a huge, gas hogging truck with a vanity plate that says cwbytaz. really? cowboy taz? and people here think that's cool. i think it kind of makes me want to vomit.
