WHDUP G

I saw a car with that license plate this morning and I LOVE it! I wish I had it! I am coveting my neighbors license plate. Speaking of my neighbors license plates. Apparently there is a family from Wales living down the street from me - how do I know this? The man's car has a plate that says WLSHMAN and his wife's car says RAREBIT. I don't know if rarebit is a Welsh endearment but I have eaten Welsh Rarebit and it is gross. I'm okay with rabbit - we ate it a lot in France but not with cheese and eaten over toast with questionable gravy. Ewww. You can tell a lot about a person from their vanity plate.

I love personalized license plates. I have always wanted one but I think I am not clever enough to pick one that will last or define me in some way. I feel like my suburban is indeed a taxi but how many times have you seen plates like MOMSTXI or MOMOF4 or whatever. BORING! There is always the motocross mom MXMOM or IRIDE2. I could celebrate the fact that I lived in France for a while with OUI OUI or CESTMOI.




My favorite plates are the ones that you can't really figure out what they are trying to say so you make a game of thinking up all of the crazy things it could say. One of the best ever used to be on a truck owned by our good friend who lives down the street. I know this man to be a huge fan of comic book heroes - namely Bat Man. So when he got a big black truck - he got a vanity plate to go along with it. Now this man is also an IT type guy - his previous truck had a plate confessing CMPTRGK (computer geek) - so while I understood his new plate for his new truck - DRKNITE to be an homage to the masked one - my husband came home asking "why would Lee get a plate that says Dork Nite?"






I still want one. Help me think up a good one.

my thing is that you have to pay $50 a year to keep the personalized liscence plates! I couldn't come up with something original and witty on my own...good for you for putting it out there for comments! Good Luck.

Haha these are fun! I love your French idea - CESTMOI! I once saw a yellow mini-couper, and its lisence plate said: "MINI CAB". I thought it was adorable!

I am the worst at figuring out what most of the plates say so I would be no good at picking one for you. You may not want one though. How could you ever be the get-away car with vanity plates :)
I'm not one to talk though my sticker totally gives me away. I can never committ a crime now dangit!

We had a vanity plate once and then when we had to renew it the price tripled, so it only lasted one year. Our family loves Jack Johnson so our plates said "BUBL 00" Not very many people could figure it out so it was our fun thing. Good luck!
Hows this for your car: ALS GAL

My sister's husband decided to suprise her and got her one for her burb. It read.......
SPRMOMY

We all went,"Sperm Oh MY?!!!" Which we thought was appropriate since she popped out 6 kids in 9 years. But no, I guess it's supposed to be "Super Mommy" .

I like C'est Moi. Alot of people won't be able to figure it out, it would be funny if they were trying to sound it out in English.
Erika's suggestion of Als Gal is funny.
I am thinking of putting FOTOJEN on my plates.
