Vanity plates are huge here in New Hampshire. Today my wife and I were driving back from picking up our new laundry room cabinets at Lowes (big day! although we didn't go to Bed Bath & Beyond), when we saw the plate: "BFYMAN" in front of us.
"biffyman?" I asked out loud, then continued, "maybe Boyfriend Yes Man?"
"Maybe his name is Brian Fyman," Mrs Dynamite replied, which for some reason made me laugh absolutely hysterically. Maybe he's a beefy man? Chunky? Driving past him later, that didn't appear to be the case.
Before getting my Subaru Forester, I debated a vanity plate. Dirty Dave suggested JMZRSKY, in homage to Alpha Dog's Jake Mazursky character, masterfully played by Ben Foster. Other quality suggestions included EVHOUND and 2THFELT. In the end, though, I went with a simple moose plate - which costs extra - about the same as a vanity plate, but is a state issued number with a moose logo on it, and the money goes to the conservation fund.
I'll try to keep a log of the good and bad plates I've seen so far ("GLD" on a Saab), but there is a clear winner to date: MOOSNKL on a Jeep 4x4.
