Vanity Plates

Personalized license plates, aka "vanity plates" are incredibly cheap in Virginia--just $25 when you renew your plate or sticker, which isn't that often or that much either. I have said ever since I moved here that since they're so cheap, anyone not having them is either lazy or suffers from a lack of imagination.

Mine says GYPC QN, which is a play on a comment someone made many years ago on one of my favorite pictures of me, that it "looked like an Appalachian gypsy queen." Husband's is EADGBE, the tuning sequence for a six-string guitar. I've seen some that are very creative and some that just make me wonder. I saw one at the shelter that said GOODOG and another one that said HEEL. And I haven't figured out whether it's our manager or the vet that comes in, both of South Asian extraction, who has the plate that reads BIRYANI. I had a car pass me once on the interstate with a plate that said WHOOSH and another one I gave a wide berth to because their plate said KNIVES. And there's a little blue Smart car that tools around town with one that says TARDIS 2.

Anyone got some to add?

1. PITSBUG for the VW Beetle

We had it in Seattle but couldn’t get it when we moved to Pittsburgh, already taken. So we’re sporting UNWEIRD till we get some numeric variant like PIT5BUG.

7. The best vanity plate I've ever seen was on

a red sports car convertible, driven by an attractive young blonde. It said, HI OFCR -- I may have the exact spelling used for the second work, but the intent was clear.
