Jon is also the curator of one of the most hilarious Instagram accounts in the world, where he collects images of absurd signs, shops, and products that he finds in his travels around the world, or are sent to him by his fans.

Earlier this year he started collecting and posting strange and/or awful vanity license plates with the hashtag #platehate17.

And hey, these are people living their lives, doing their own thing. This is worth celebrating, even if "MOM4RNT" and "DZZNTZZ" aren't exactly what we'd normally consider to be tasteful declarations of individuality.
