Time for a New License Plate

I change my car’s license plate every year.

See, Virginia charges you the same amount for just renewing a custom plate as they do for ordering it in the first place. In other words, they’re not doing any additional work after that first year, but they expect me to keep paying them as if they were.

So nope, if they’re gonna take my ten bucks, then they’re gonna have to do the work for it.

Anyway, it’s that time again, and I have to come up with my plate for the year. The family pretty seriously rejected my first choice, “I POOTED,” so it’s back to square one. I’d do something promoting Tohubohu, but I’ve only got seven letters, and “TOHUBHU” and “THUBOHU” (or other variations therof) just aren’t cutting it for me. In the past, I’ve had “MOVIMKR” and “CINEAST,” but I’m kinda looking for something fresh.

Any suggestions?

See, I'd go with IPOOTED, but then Pam and the girls would kill me.

MOVIMKR is a bit too LA, don't you think?--and you know what I think of THAT city--or, rather, that non-city with six thousand 'burbs. CINEAST is just a bit TOO, in general.

Maryland is a bit more pissy about issuing vanity plates--read, they're more expensive here. And, I could never decide: WM 9T1, VADELT 91, SIGEPRLZ, IHRTDG, VLNCIA...
Besides, there's my inherent belief that vanity plates are...well, trashy. I'll just take what the MVA dishes out. It's cheaper and saves me the creative worry.

I suggest FMNDA.

Sound it out - you'll get the picture. :-)

How about IOWNU as in "I Own You"

or follow someone elses theme and go with

Well, I think the girls would veto "BOSSOFU" as well. "OLDMAN" — even assuming it's available — may not be something I want to draw attention to. And "POKRGOD" would be pushing it, even for someone with my ego. But hey, "CHIPLDR" has some real potential...
