We live in an age of personal expression. Not only can you choose the make, model, size, color, etc. of your vehicle but you can, if you have the money and the inclination, also use it to carry a small message.
Most personal license plates are quite ordinary. They're a few numbers or letters of some significance to the car's owner. These 15 plates, on the other hand, are trying to say a bit more than that.
We think that they're telling the world that their owners are funny, carefree people. They certainly made us laugh, and we're sure that you'll enjoy them, too.
1. A Dog's Driver
This pet owner appears to have named their vehicle in honor of their dog's unusual look. We love it. This is a super statement on the bond between man and his best friend.
2. Well Played
Everyone who has ever picked up any of Nintendo's classic console games will know what this plate is all about. Now, where's Link again?
3. May The Force Be With Them
This is very cleverly done. It lets somebody get their Star Wars fandom into just 7 characters. We just hope it doesn't lead to the dark side.
4. Cheating A Little
This metal fan has seen the opportunity to take an uninteresting plate and turn it into the envy of the mosh pit. We think their car needs to be meaner to pull this off, though.
Then there's the straight-up celebratory message of a license plate which was captured in a divorce settlement. We bet her ex winces every time it drives past him.
This is very cleverly done, though of course it's limited to a single brand of car, which means that the resale value won't be as high as some of the others.
7. South Park Tribute
You would need to watch the show South Park to get this one, but it's a neat tribute to this memorable character who is the star of some of the episodes.
8. Mixed Messages
This is a very clever statement on the ironies of preaching "no drugs" while trying to prescribe them to children. We are surprised that they issued this.
9. Cheeky And Clever
It's that hand-drawn and gently taped on "L" that makes this license plate rise above cheeky and into the territory of really clever. It's the perfect "epic fail."
10. Frodo's Ferrari
Well, it's not a Ferrari, but you get the point, right? This is the perfect car for a Hobbit taking a few days break from trekking to Mordor.
11. It's A Lease
Let's be fair about this - this kind of car is either owned by a millionaire or someone deep in debt to the bank. It's nice that we know which is the case here.
12. We Mean That Literally
Sure, this is stating something very obvious, but there's still something quite zen about somebody putting this on their license plate. It made us laugh, too.
13. Dining With Clarity
This car owner should be thankful that they don't hate asparagus, since that would require rather more space than this does. We wonder what peas did to them?
14. Aiming High
This is superb, and though we're not entirely sure that the vehicle is going to be in next year's Fast and The Furious sequel, it could well be thanks to that plate.
15. Bad Message
This is pretty funny in isolation, but it's not a great message to send out to other drivers and we bet it invites unwanted police attention, too.
They're really awesome, aren't they? They certainly put a smile on our faces in the office. We hope you chuckled, too.
