Laughable License Plates
The folks behind these license plates have great senses of humor. Coming up with the perfect abbreviation for a personalized license plate is complicated stuff. After all, "J is Lord" could be read in a few ways. Sure, it could stand for "Jesus is Lord," but it could also mean, well — sound out the letters together, and you'll understand. That's right; some of the most hilarious license plates happen to be extremely awkward.
It seems that good manners don't matter so much to this person from Louisiana. They decided to attach a blunt and painfully straightforward message to the rear-end of their vehicle, and it's not likely that anyone stuck behind them in traffic appreciated the sentiment.
Those unfamiliar with internet culture may not see the humor in this license plate, which is a real shame. However, anyone can recognize that "247" stands for 24/7 — as in "all the time." Taking things a step further, doing a Google Safe Search on the three letters will result in some surprisingly explicit results.
The fortunate individuals who own one — or several — of Tesla’s all-electric vehicles never have to pump gas again. They can go almost anywhere, assured and comforted, knowing that their cars produce basically no emissions.
Getting stuck behind someone who drives well below the speed limit can be irritating, and it can be difficult to understand why someone isn't putting the pedal to the metal. But anyone caught behind this driver has no one to blame but themselves.
Those who decide to personalize their license plates tend to want to make statements about themselves or the world around them. The challenge is coming up with something that only requires a handful of characters. Well, this North Carolina driver succeeded — most likely in a neat and timely manner.
Abbreviations can be a fun and practical way of shortening long terms and phrases. But you really need to analyze them well before use, or you could end up like this nice mom from Pennsylvania. Now, the boast of "nicest mom" isn't a terrible one.
Before June 17, 1994, a white Ford Bronco was just a car. But after that fateful day, it was known as the car OJ Simpson drove during his infamous low-speed police chase. The next year would see a massive increase in Ford Bronco sales, no doubt thanks to plenty of television coverage.
People from North Carolina sure do tend to make some strange statements with their license plates. This set of tags is attached to a Hummer, so perhaps this message is supposed to be interpreted as "I'm Hummer." But if that was the owner's intention — well, they failed miserably.
Honesty is often the best policy. But what about brutal honesty? Sometimes blunt words and intentions can lead to hurt feelings and tense relationships. The owner of this Jetta doesn't seem to care, which is just as refreshing as it is humorous.
Asking to Get Pulled Over
Red cars might get pulled over more often and require more expensive insurance, but this license plate probably quadrupled this driver's chance of encountering some concerned police officers. There are a few things you shouldn't do and shouldn't be while operating a vehicle, and this license plate lists one of the most important no-nos.
V Is for Virginia
Oh, Virginia. You have inspired some remarkably delightful license plates. This one features a University of Virginia logo that functions as a free letter V. And the things you can do with an extra V are, well, limited. But this driver didn't let a great opportunity go to waste!
Any pickup truck owner can tell you how good (or bad) their vehicle's gas mileage is. Some trucks get an average of only 10 miles to the gallon, while others reach a staggering 23 miles or more per gallon. Pickup trucks are usually gas guzzlers, though.
Raise the Sails
Pirates are no longer associated with romance novels and history programs. At least, those aren't the only things pirates are known for. A few films starring Johnny Depp, some illegal downloading practices and troubles in Somalia have all elevated the term "pirate" into contemporary consciousness.
The owner of this Ford Explorer must love puns and wordy jokes because their chosen license plate is a clever play on the vehicle's model name and a popular cartoon character. Even people who don't have children know what Dora the Explorer is. They may even know what to say to Swiper.
Though many evil supervillains tend to go into hiding, staying inconspicuous as often as possible, others choose to be as in-your-face as possible. Though it's unlikely that there's a devious, super-powered bad guy behind the wheel of this Toyota — unlikely, but not impossible — this license plate seems like the perfect choice for an extroverted villain.
Virginia's at it again! This license plate may make you laugh — initially — but keep on looking. You're bound to end up with burning questions and spicy suppositions. How did this end up as a license plate? That's the biggest question, of course.
There were some upset feelings going around when this beautiful car received its tags. Though the plate may just look like a series of letters and numbers, it's an acronym paired with a restaurant term.
Canadians aren't too far from Americans, culturally and geographically speaking. So, it makes sense that they’d also generate some surprising, embarrassing and amusing license plates. But this one, well, you can see for yourself.
A Bit Redundant
Smart Cars are eco-friendly, cute and compact. They’re also the butt of hundreds of jokes due to their incredibly small size, low speed and general goofy appearance. They're electric cars that were designed to reduce city pollution and help increase parking capacity.
A dad in California — most likely, judging by the type of humor — created this referential, unexpected license plate. Driving an Impala is nothing out of the ordinary. There's nothing inherently funny about Impalas.
Lamborghinis are expensive cars. And making that statement is on par with saying that the sky is blue. Everyone knows the sky is blue, and everyone knows that Lamborghinis cost as much as some houses. But the owner of this rocking-red sports car seemed to be unsure about the whole thing.
Thanks for Sharing
Californians have a reputation for being beautiful, sun-kissed golden gods and goddesses, slumbering in beachside mansions and wandering off to endless wineries. That's a pretty exaggerated stereotype. But then these license plates show up, and a tiny part of that Californian swagger gets proven true.
The Sandman Cometh
If you thought "drunk" was a bad license plate, get ready for "asleep." Falling asleep behind the wheel is just as bad as driving while under the influence, as both tend to result in fatal car accidents. So, tipping off every driver behind you — including police officers — to the fact that you may be snoozing is both somewhat responsible and absolutely strange.
"Maryland Vampire Volkswagen" sounds either like an indie band or a vampiric carpool service. Either way, it's awesome and worth more than a few bouts of outrageous giggles. Unless, of course, this license plate is a serious warning and not a comical piece of metal.
A Florida person decided on this alliterative and off-color license plate, and unless you speak and read Spanish, it's just an average, sports-oriented tag. But, if you do understand Spanish, you'll know precisely why this plate is so darn funny. The letter M logo for the Miami Dolphins acts as a free extra letter.
It's so apparent that a dad made this decision. "Van Diesel" is hilarious, and it actually fits that van perfectly. Vin Diesel is bald, and Van Diesel is hairless. They're both pretty strong, pretty tough and capable of traveling long distances.
The Spirit of America
Motorcycles need license plates too, you know. But this one was chosen based on potty jokes. Yep, you're reading that right. It says "POOPS." Obviously, this biker knows what makes them laugh. But the unintentional addition of "Mass" — short for Massachusetts — creates a new phrase. Of course, it begs the question of whether it was unintentional at all.
Indecision at Its Finest
Moving to the desert means plenty of sand, hot sun and not a lot of green vegetation. All in all, figuring out what to do for fun can be a significant challenge.
If the children are our future, then according to this Virginia license plate, there will soon be no future. Soylent Green might be people, but at least it's not tiny human children. This cannibalistic license plate is so ridiculous, so laughable and so perfectly framed, it almost seems unreal.
Not Quite Right
Virginians know how to make a ludicrous license plate. Again and again, these folks prove that they have some strong statements to make with their tags. Like many awkward license plates, this example could be interpreted in many different ways. The most obvious interpretation, of course, is that it says "vibrator."
