Vanity license plates amuse me. By amuse, I of course mean that many of them annoy me greatly. I am sure I am not the only one who feels that numbers should never EVER replace letters. A while back I saw someone with a tag that said "ON1Y ONE" The irony here is that the person could not use the letter "L" to spell "ONLY" and had to substitute it with the number "1." That of course meant that this person was NOT the "only one."
One of my favourites was from New Year's Eve. I pulled up behind a person and saw this plate (recreated via the Virginia DMV webpage):No matter how nerdy I feel, I can always look back on this and feel better about my life.
