If you’re like me, you amuse yourself in traffic by staring at the letters on license plates and making up words. For example, HRT becomes “Heart” and DNT becomes “Donut.” Then I start thinking, oh yeah I do love donuts!

Then you get the 3 letter abbreviations like SNL, ETA, BTW or ones that just sound funny: BAP, POW, MEH. (If you see me while I’m driving I’ll most likely be muttering to myself like a madwoman.)

Once in a while you get a REAL treat and see a vanity plate with an actual word on it, or something that looks like a word but you can’t quite figure out what it means. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve compiled a short list of plate words that I have observed.

First, your obligatory sports fanatics:
(boooooooooooo, on a Nebraska Plate)

And others:
JPG (I can only assume this person is a member of the Joint Photographic Experts Group)
WLLFX4U (on a service van)
(I laughed when I saw this one, someone is declaring to the world “yes, I am creepie and proud of it”)

I think if I got a vanity plate it might say BRETZEL. Or we could be sick and get BRTZEL1 and BRTZEL2, I don’t think Ryan would go for it though. What do you think? I guess it’s not very original. Maybe CRAFTY1, or GRNMAB since I have grandma-like tendencies to knit or bake cookies whenever possible.

    I saw one yesterday that said NE1410S. Anyone for ???. Is 10s slang for something? Bowling?

      Need 1’s for 10’s? Maybe a frequent strip club goer?

      How about SNKRSWM! Synchronized swimming is way too long to abbreviate into 7 letters or less.
