Vanity Plates

I saw a stupid vanity plate today. The car was a Titan, and the vanity plate said, "V8 TITAN". Why would you spend all that money to tell people what kind of car you have, when they can just look at the logo on the car? I also am not fond of vanity plates that say things like
"M ♥ J". I feel like if I"m going to spend that much money (I think I heard it's like $300) I want to come up with something really catchy. I have seen a few I liked. One in particular was owned by a friend of mine. He had a suburban FULL of kids. His plate said something like, "Cacophony" which means,

1. harsh discordance of sound; dissonance: a cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails.
2. a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds: the cacophony produced by city traffic at midday.
3. Music. frequent use of discords of a harshness and relationship difficult to understand.

I thought that fit his family's vehicle well. I've seen a few others I liked, but I didn't like them well enough to remember them.

I've decided my license plate should be titled one of two names. It should be either:

1. Miser's Plate--because I'm too cheap to spend the money on a vanity plate


2. Idiot's plate-- I was thinking that an idiot might think his plate VGJ 463 was as meaningful as the vanity plates. ;)

When we first moved back to the states and bought a car, our license plate just happened by chance to be my husband's initials, followed by the ages of our three kids. That made it easy for me to remember my license plate number. Hey, maybe that's why people use the "M ♥ J"! By the way, if you want to try out a license plate idea, you can go to this site to see how it would look. :)

I used your blogspot to get into the plate and made my vanity plate. The other one I really like is GO FLY
