Here are some of the funniest applications for vanity license plates

Well both the “BLUE ME” phrasing and the “A NU START” license plate are running gags from the least self-aware analyst/therapist in town.

I don’t get how 808B8D “looks similar to a text penis.” What am I missing?

(The “B8D” part does sound like a masturbation reference from Idiocracy, though.)

I live in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC and have been told about the E=MC2 plate, but I’ve never seen it.

One time I saw this (on an Acura NSX) and figured the guy was doing everyone a favor (i.e. avoid him like a sack of warm fecula)

But don’t miss out on the ones they approved. They’re not PRTY-PPRs all the time…

Some of the DMV’s interpretations are reaching.

A bunch of the no verdicts are just prudish.

A few are actually mildly offensive.

I doubt I would have been granted mine if anyone at the Texas DMV knew what it meant. Probably had a better chance of getting recognized and flagged for a no in California.

How much sadder it would be if after years of having that plate no one ever did.

I’ve seen it in person. I’m a motorcycle commuter so I slip through a lot of stopped traffic, and see a lot of plates.

GETNBSY was okay but TUNAFSH was not?

Arbitrary bureaucrats are arbitrary.

I feel like Asswipe (um, it’s “Oz-Wee-Pay”) Johnson works for the Cali DMV.

Perhaps I’m uncommonly thick today, but I can’t parse the first two. Huh?

The first few were amusing, but then I got to “Customer’s name is Brant” and lost it.

Definitely get the sense that some of the applicants are being rewarded/punished for the quality of their explanation, depending on what mood the reviewers are in. I can just picture the look of long-suffering exhaustion on the face of whoever’s desk that “Saint Anne” one landed on.

Why have I got this song in my head?

I want that S8TAN plate. bad.

Every so often I keep checking for a vanity plate for my old 70s BMW R90/6, for any number of combinations of something Motorhead related, because I’m going to do a custom restore in honor. The bike was made the same month Motorhead was founded, but Ill never get the coveted LEMMY plate
