43 License Plates That Actually Say Something

While vanity plates earn an instant eye-roll, there are some folks out there just doing it right, and sometimes they have to go around the rules.

If someone with this plate cut you off, would you be mad?

How about this one?

If someone pays money to snark you, who’s the real loser?

When driving gives you low self-esteem…

So many vanity plates exist purely to speak to the cars behind them. That said, I highly doubt a Honda in Missouri has that many haters.

At least this guy is polite…

7.

You might think this is the best license plate. Don’t we all want an epic win? (Even if it’s in a Taurus?)

8.

But I would argue for this one.

9.
Via reddit.com

At least this car understands its shortcomings.

10.

And I really hope this is meant to be ‘wining’ and not ‘winning’ minus an n. Wining I can get behind.

11.

So can this guy.

Of course, you can get a little too enthusiastic about anything. We must always remember, um, where we are, yes?

13.
Via i-am-bored.com

A lot of times these things state the obvious.

14.
Via reddit.com

No kidding.

In case the car alone wasn’t enough to make you hate this person…

16.
Via reddit.com

Again, we have to ask ourselves, what is actually worth that 50 bucks?

17.
Via reddit.com

Derp.

You know, if you have to say it that much, it might not be true.

19.
Via huffingtonpost.com

On the other hand, some people are delightfully self-aware.

20.

Sometimes, these plates have a poignant point about the current state of affairs.

21.

Did you know North Dakota tried to take those plates away before the ACLU stepped in?

22.
Via reddit.com

The problem is, these references can become dated.

And then there are those references that will never get old.

Winning.

25.

A play on words never hurts.

26.

Which is why this license plate is basically the best thing I’ve ever seen.

But some go too far…

28.

You see, eating kids is a popular (and funny) joke in mommy circles because it’s not going to happen. Slapping and beating kids? Not so much.

29.
Via huffingtonpost.com

Some cars remark on their piece of the societal puzzle.

30.
Via huffingtonpost.com

Wicked smahht, actually. Go Boston. Go right to Dunkin’ Donuts.

31.
Via huffingtonpost.com

Some make you question the driver’s choices. Perhaps a bigger car, then, right?

Guessing the divorce isn’t going so well…

Time to move?

Sometimes you have to be really creative. (Especially if you have the burning desire to have the back of your car say vagina.)

35.

The DMV won’t let certain words through their screening process. But if ‘asshole’ is that important to you, by all means, flip that number plate upside down.

The lengths some people will go to for a dirty joke is amazing.

37.
Via 206forthetwenties.com

I prefer the clean jokes, myself. (Showing my age, I guess, but can pirates ever fail?)

38.

Some simply serve as warnings.

39.

He’s probably just going to the hospital. For brrrraaaaaaaaiiiiiiiinnnnnns.

The only thing scarier than a zombie driving a car is a brony driving a car.

41.
Via smosh.com

Some have a message not for this earthly plane.

42.

Man, Virginia is just on top of this license plate thing, huh?

In spite of all this, the original point stands. Most people seeing a vanity plate of any kind assume the drivers are…well, ^^^^
