Now, if I had one of those vanity license plates that adorn almost every car in Southern California, it'd probably say something like above. If it wasn't taken already, i.e. All the fun ones usually are. So if one's going to go through the completely unnecessary expense of having one, it might be worthwhile to really rack the brain and get some creative juice flowing. It should have a point, right? If in these economic times, one decides that a vanity plate is a luxury one can't do without, surely it's worth some effort? Better yet, one can pay someone to come up with something zany, thereby creating jobs and providing that much needed boost the economy needs. Better than a taxpayer bailout. Must write to Obama.

Anyhoo, before I digress any further, the reason why I'm writing about this:

So I was dropping Raina off to preschool this morning and there's this car before me. Really nice black BMW SUV, if you like SUVs that is. Which I don't, but that's neither here nor there. And this really nice BMW had this Arizona vanity plate that read VERYHOT. Really? Now what exactly is really hot? Is it the car (which I may have already mentioned is really nice)? Or the driver? The occupants? Or is it just a reference to the Arizona weather? I've heard it's hot in Arizona. Very hot.

So dude, if you're reading this, a word of advice: If you're going to spend money on a vanity plate, surely you can talk about something more interesting than the weather. Right now, all your vanity plate says about you is that you're dull. Boring. A vanity plate is a good accessory, so make sure it's a clear style statement about you. Coz it's all about you and your vanity, don't you know?

Hey, people from AZ are HOT, OK? No further explanation required.

Mamma Mia, hope anyone contemplating a vanity plate reads this! If you wanted one, what would yours read?
Nice one, EL!
Hehehe, did I hit a sore spot, Ter? That wasn't your ex-car, was it?

havent come across any witty ones - usually they are names of folks who own the vehicle.

btw one of the things i want to do in life is drive a merc SUV, bimmer will do nicely too thank you. just to drive it once mind you, not own it.

Choxbox, I found a cute one a couple of days ago that said "SUBMITU". I think I would like that one for myself. As for SUVs, why this urge to drive one?

choxbox said...

just to understand why folks are nuts about owning one - when all it usually carries is one tiny child - back and forth from school..
(there were fleets of these types in our neighbourhood in london)
despite the obvious waste of road space, fuel and money, why do folks keep buying them?

I don't get it myself, Choxbox, so can throw no light on the matter. I have friends who flat out refuse to buy a minivan despite the fuel prices here. They think it's too uncool. I think it's too uncool to go for a SUV which is such a gas guzzler. Just my opinion of course.
