Funny or clever plates. Anybody seen any?

I saw 2 yesterday which made me chuckle.

On the back of an AMG CLA45 - “AMGOMG”

And on the back of a Toyota Hilux - “HIRUX’

I guess the Hilux could potentially offend some people but I thought it was funny. Bit surprised they let it through TBH.

Anybody else seen any funny plates?

"They" wouldn't get it.

But that's perfectly innocent. Spelling is everything.
Possibly not. There used to be a horse racing here in Brisbane called “Pistol Knight” which escaped the censors as well. :)

A couple from memory. DIVA, and the driver looked very tired, huge yawn in the rearview mirror. It's so hard being a diva these days, I guess. :p

And 666 DVL; twice, I kid you not. Years back, almost home from work in the deep evening, and this modest sedan was hogging the two lane road going c. five under the speed limit. I was about to go out and around, when I started taking in the details. The silhouette of the driver was stock still, bulky, in a winter coat and wearing what appeared to be an "Odd Job" type bowler hat; in fact, the figure could be Odd Job from behind. As I started to make my move to pass (illegally, mind you), I saw that plate and got a supernatural rush of alarm. Instead of passing, I backed off to c. ten below the speed limit and let the Devil have his way.

That was easily a quarter century ago. Just a couple of years ago, I was driving my aged mother around on some errands; and we pulled into her bank's drive up window lanes. Right next to us in the other drive up lane was a well-fleshed, middle-aged woman of nondescript ancestry, and as she pulled forward to the teller station I saw the plate on her (also modest but much newer) sedan, 666 DVL. Uncanny! This time I was only highly amused at the incredible coincidence. Must have been the wife of the earlier "Odd Job" dude. Either that, or the original owner of the plate dropped it and somebody else snagged it. Either that, or the Devil really does enjoy advertising his/her identity "in your face". :eek:

I can’t remember if I’ve told this story here before. A few years back I was following a girly looking little buzz box of some description with the plate BIGAL which I read as BI - GAL. I thought to myself ‘ Wow, she’s out and proud and doesn’t care who knows it.’ So just out of curiosity I snuck a look at her as I went past. Well, inside was the biggest, ugliest , hairiest bloke I’ve ever seen in my life. And then it struck me that what I’d interpreted as BI - GAL was actually BIG - AL. Disappointed doesn’t begin to describe me.

A good friend (even though he's a BMW owner :p ) is a big golf fanatic. Some years ago, he got a personalized plate that said "LUV2PLY". I waited until we were together with some other buddies for a beer, then asked him about his plate... Was that about his love of golf or his preference for toilet paper? (hey what are friends for?). He took it with good humor but the next time I saw him, he had already gotten a new one: "LUV2PLA"
