Post you worst vanity plate sightings!

I was riding home last night, and was watching this car approaching from an off-ramp. Unmistakeable sound of a ricer muffler and he was trying to decide if he could beat me to the merge. I pointed directly at him (I had right of way, he had a yield sign) and he backed off. He merged behind me, and when things cleared up, passed me. I was looking at his plate when he went by:

JOES FCS

and I started laughing so hard that I almost fell off the bike. Then I realized what he was driving, a Ford Focus.

And I have another:

MILF

I kid you not. Driven by a female. Who else has seen outrageous plates that the DMV was surely stupid enough to approve?

I saw "PWNED" here in Ann Arbor one summer day. Screwed onto the back of a British Racing Green Mazda Miata. This was back in 2003, when the term was just coming into full usage.

I saw "L33tHXR"... Turns out it was a coworker .

I also saw "H8CATS". Kinda makes you wonder why the person is so bitter they want to put that on their license plate. I mean, it's not like the cats can read it. They just felt like sharing it with the world I guess.

I'm not getting this one. I've had a bad day, will someone take pity on me?

I feel like the guy at the party who doesn't get the joke while everyone else is laughing.

My dad had 'CAJONES' for awhile before someone complained and the state asked for it back.

I keep looking for G Gordon Liddy around DC. He's supposed to have one that reads 'H2OGATE'.

The other day I saw a newer Lexus painted half red half black. The driver was wearing a matching outfit, and the plate read "ROMEOJR."

My favorite one in the last few years was on the new Illinois plates, which have an image of Abraham Lincoln in the middle of the plate. The plate was:

ABES F8

Pretty funny.

A little ricer car that had "KOOL OO". I think he might have been going for something else, but if you say it all together, then its pretty darn close to a spanish slang term for a**.

All time favorite wasn't even a vanity plate. An exgirlfriend and many other Texans had plates that started with "STD".

Virginia has a lot of vanity plates. I was up there a for a few days back in January. We change the game from figure out the vanity plate, to who has a regular plate.

When I was in high school, there was this loser who had ILUVWMN on his pinky/purply late eighties mustang. I say loser, although he probably thought he was the ****e. I dunno if the WMN did.

Today I saw a new Cadillac with some old geezer in it with the plate that said....."NOTPOOR". I thought to myself that this guy really has an ego problem. His head was bigger than the hood ornament.
