OBSERVATIONS & REQUESTS
PLATEEXPLANATION
1BMULEZ 40"1" for the letter "I," perhaps? I BE MULEZ? This person is noting that he/she is a carryall, who has to cart people/things everywhere? Or, observing that he/she is an "ass" (another word for mule...)--not sure of the reading on this one... .
1 BFT 40"1 before the 40" -- i.e., I think this person was 39 when he/she got the plate?...Credit for this one to Randy W. ...
1 KNG 3QNA workable, promising poker hand -- thanks to Randy W.
2ARROGNTWonder if this person is referring to themself, or complaining about someone else??
2SPOILEDThis one's pretty clear, though WHO is too spoiled remains an important question...
3FOLD "Three fold" what, I wonder?
4BDNTANHmmmnh,a "Forbidden Tan"? I am very curious what makes the tan so 'forbidden'?? See on a NH plate in Massachusetts by my sister Linda (I'm surprised she doesn't have her own plate with "ADNIL," as that's what I often called her when we were kids) :-)
4U2RVLFor you to reveal? Or is it "revel"? Wonder what that might be (the thing to be revealed)? Perhaps it's a religious meaning...
'ACKN UPThis driver is letting you know that he/she is "backin' up" I guess... .
A-CAUSENo doubt "B-CAUSE" is also out there trolling around somewhere in the state--or perhaps it's someone with A Cause (a person with a mission)...
ALST8TEThis could be a reference to the insurance company; more likely it's a sports reference but can't be sure, so put it in the "observations" category with a cross reference...
AIM-HIProbably someone who was in the Air Force -- or else a "glass half FULL" kind of character: The power of positive thinking...
ARCANEI like this one--the dictionary description of the word "arcane"= "known or knowable only to the initiate" -- i.e., mysterious, obscure...A very interesting word choice for a plate...
AWWYEAHSelf exaplanatory -- thanks to Randy W...
BAT TURNHmmh, this one's unique. Not sure how a 'bat turn' differs from a regular turn, maybe I need to re-watch some Batman movies or the old series to figure it out...Thanks to Randy W. in NC.
B BOLDSelf-explanatory
B-HAVEGood advice!
B!UE EYZ This driver HAS blue eyes? Likes blue eyes? Recommends blue eyes to everyone? Uncertain...
BRN2RUL"Born to Rule"??? Absolutely NO lack of confidence for this individual. Not sure what domain this driver rules, however...
BUMBLEE!This one's interesting. I always thought bumblebees were pretty cool. The B for BEE is missing--but what else could this mean? Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this--wish he'd have noticed the color and make of the car; if it had been a yellow Mustang, now, that would mean a Transformers fan!... .
C$MOOV This is a pretty cool plate--maybe the driver works in a bank or at a stockbroker company and observes monetary transactions?
COOLREDI COOL and READY??...or a way to get LADY out there without using "L"ADY? (i.e., Asian accent pronunciation "Raedy"). Or, "Cooler Edi"? It's anyone's guess here...
DBL-FThis is very possibly an off color observation...
DIG THISSelf-explanatory...
DISMINE2No doubt about the owner of this vehicle, in this case...
DNT X MEA definite warning on this plate!
DUITBIG Haha, not sure what the "it" is--but whatever it is, it should be "dun" big, I guess...!
DO-N-FINE Possible relation of the one below, haha?!
DO N OKNice and positive...
DN'T CAREIn your face!!! Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this one.
DORK2 I see this one as a personal observation (though could also class as a character type)...and, there are apparently several DORKs out there already, if this person is 2 (unless it's in fact a short form of "too"...
DUNSENot sure who's intended as the "Dunce" (plate owner used an alternate spelling)--the driver, or whoever is reading the plate...
DUNTHATCan't help wondering if there's a second car in the family with a plate that reads "BINTHERE"?
DWN*2ERTNot sure if this really applies, since the vehicle happened to be a flashy sports car...(doesn't seem much of a 'down to earth' mentality to me). Thanks 2 Daniel for this one, and the commentary!
EARGSOMIf you say this fast, it comes out sounding like "irksome" -- wonder if that was the real intent? Something this driver finds annoying?
ES MIO 2 A person who is of Spanish heritage--or who really likes Spanish--"It's mine 2," I think this says (but I don't speak Spanish; German yes, Japanese and Russian a bit, but no Spanish...). Perhaps a Spanish relative of DISMINE2 (or DISMINE1)?? This contribution thanks to my former bass player, Michael D.
EEEEEEK! This driver is afraid of mice, maybe?
ETMOCHKNEat more chicken?? This plate could have been an ad for a restaurant, or a poultry farmer...
EVRYMORN Self-explanatory, and perhaps often found together with SAMESAME (though I haven't yet seen this plate)
FIT-MOMY Self-observation, this mom stays in shape! Could also fit other categories.
GET CHA1 This plate begs a partner: GOT CHU 2 -- or else, it could be a reference to CHAI (a drink) with a "1" as the "I"...
GO*TO*11 Some folks are pretty direct...
GOTBEACH Not sure if this is a question, or a statement...
GOTRBACKDon't know if this refers to the auto, or a girlfriend...
GRNLHTGOGreat one! I like this suggestion for folks reading license plates rather than paying attention! Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this...
H8PMRNT "Hate paying my rent" I'm assuming this means-- haha, funny. However, if he/she acts on this, they might end up out on the street, though. Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this one.
HAHA CYA Pretty self-explanatory, as this car drives away... .
HBGFT2RBThis one's really clever--can you figure it out? Run your Mouse (and left click) over the answer here: HB's GIFT 2 RB -- i.e., probably a reference to the car ...
HEKFYNOOne of my personal favorites -- "heck if I know!"...
HEYBABE1Wonder if there's a "2" and a "3" or more? Thanks to Randy W.'s sharp eyes...
HEY-THRNo help needed for this one!...
HOWGLADVery positive!...How glad ARE you??
HUEYYUH1Guess "HEY YOU" was already taken... A high school classmate of mine, Karyn, has this one on her car. See the "vehicle" category for another! ...
HPYENDINGlad things seem to have turned out well for this individual...
IAM42NUTThe power of positive thinking. This person feels she/he has, as the Romans would have said, "BONA FORTUNA"...
IBLD4U2A construction worker (I build for you, too)? A military person talking about potential willingness to sacrifice on our behalf (I bleed for you, too)? ... Thanks to Daniel for this contribution
ICAMALLClearly someone who is into large venue shopping!(I SEE A MALL)
IGONOWNo doubt about what this individual is telling you! This one is from my sister in Massachusetts--but it was on a New Hampshire plate. Apparently, few folks in Taxachusetts can afford the additional expense of a "vanity" (i.e., personalized) license plate!
IGOTULKNHere's a great plate--neutral enough to belong to someone from either gender--but I suspect the owner is probably a female...
ILUV4METhis is almost certainly a reference to a person; however. that "one" (assuming the I represents 1) love could, in fact, be almost anything (your guess is as good as mine, what...chocolate, maybe?)...
IM REALThis is an intriguing plate--real, as opposed to fake? Personal character assessment?! Thanks to Randy W. for this...
IWRKOUTEither a great fan of exercise, or perhaps a joke on the music hit by the group "LMAO" called "I'm Sexy and I Know It...[I work out!]" -- thanks to Randy W...
I HEAL UThis could be a doctor (which would put in the Employment category), or perhaps religious...You can decide...
IMDUINMEI hesitate to try and explain this one...self-gratification of some sort???
IFEMI-2I'm a femi[nine]... No.2? (i.e., I'm a female too? Or, does "femi" or "ifemi" mean something else rather than an observation of being female? ...
IM WIRED Great one--I like this attitude...
ISIGN4UI wonder what, exactly, this individual "signed" or signs, for another person? A notary public? More likely, it's someone who does sign language for folks who are auditory challenged...
ISOGOTIT This one's pretty good--probably talking about having figured something out!!
IWRKOUTMakes me think of the tune "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LFMAO (Laugh My Ass Off, for those who don't know the acronym used by these singers). Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this!
JSTFLRTNThis is good!! How many flirters do YOU know??!! Thanks to Daniel for this contribution...
JUS BNME Love this plate -- JUST BEING ME--nothing wrong with that, ha!...
JUSTFINEI like this--either a positive attitude, or a slightly flippant response!!
LETSSHAGApparently, the censors who monitor license plates for the state have never watched the Austin Powers movies, or else are unfamiliar with slang as used in the Queen's English...Thanks go to Randy W. in NC for this one.
LIVINITGuess this is related to the expression "livin' the life"...
LIV4FUNThis person is not the type to take life too seriously...!
LS 2GO Pretty self-explanatory
MAD @ ME Someone has raised someone else's ire...Wonder if it's a spouse that is mad? Or, a kid whose parents, girlfriend or boyfriend is mad? This is the first time that we have ever encountered the @ symbol on a plate...
MAVALOUSI'm reminded of Billy Chrystal...
MBCARY 46I'm guessing, Master of Business, from a school in Cary, NC? That would put this driver in his/her 90's--likely it has got to have some other meaning... . Or, maybe it's a name: 'MB Cary'--but in that case, don't know the significance of the "46" (there can't be 45 other MB Carys...).
MEGOB4U Not sure if this refers to driving, or dying?! This reminds me of a 1700 or 1800s gravestone saying: "Behold and see as you pass by - as you are now, so once was I; as I am now, soon you shall be! Prepare yourself to follow me." Some clever soul had wandered by in later years and carved this addendum into the gravestone: "To follow you I am not content until I know which way you went!"
MOVE OVR In other words, this driver doesn't want to see you in the rear view mirror?
NAMASTEA common greeting in India, and among practitioners of Yoga. Pronounced "NAMA-SHTAY." Nice one!
NBL TTY1 Not sure how to read this one...Noble Titty1, possibly? Hmmmh, can't think of another possibility fot TTY at the moment... .
NOTOQUE Female driver; at first I thought this was NOTOQUE as in NO TOKE...but I believe it's actually NO TO QUESTIONS...
NUCKNFUTS Great one! A New Hampshire plate--and a clever one! Seen by my sister in Massachusetts. Thanks Linda!...
NVCTUS This was on an Oregon license plate and most people simply wouldn't understand it because it's actually the Latin word INVICTUS (the Roman U and V were both written "V," so the Romans would have written it INVICTVS), which means "unconquered"!
O 2 BEME Hehe! No shyness on this person's part!
OFFTOWRKPretty easy to figure this one out!! 40-ish female driver, wearing really funky white-framed shades...
OMYBAC Someone who needs a chiropractor!
OH-ME-ME Not quite sure about this one. Oh Me Me? Oh May May (depends on the vowel value you give to the "E")... ?
OVATAKEU Actually, if the car with this plate is in FRONT of you then the correct response would be OVATOOKU (or OVA2KU)
PAYNHAH I'm putting this in the observation category, as it looks to me like someone making fun of pain, as in PAIN, HAH! Course, I could be totally mistaken, but until someone tells me differently...
PETS=LOVE This could also be in the FAMILY category--I know I personally, consider my dogs part of my family, and that does, indeed = love (unless you are not mentally stable)... .
PUNCHME A masochist (a glutton for punishment, by any other name), or else a major "dare you." Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this...
PUREH20 Someone who owns a water company? An environmentalist, perhaps?...
PUSH Push what(?), one wonders--the answer may follow below...
PUSH & GO Personally, "PUSH&PUL" seems more natural to me, or maybe "DONTPUSH!"--but, hey, that's just me...
PYTISME PY TIS ME? (it's me?); not sure what the PY wou;d mean...Thanks to Randy W. for this one...
RAWRRRThis driver likes big cats, maybe (I'm assuming this is a way to say "Roar" (which was probably already taken)...
RAYZUP this one's pretty neat, but seems unfinished -- raise up and...?!! What comes next? Course, it could be a religious reference to resurrection...or standing up to praise...
RES-Q-ME No trouble figuring this one out! From what, I wonder?
RIDE.N Ridin'?
RIGGGHT! No question about this one!
SAMEOLDG"Same old dog"--great plate~!...
SAVAHRSE Someone who wants to help members of the equestrian race...
SA WHEN!On a white and red Mustang GT. I'm still looking for a "SA WHAT" plate...
SHEGOTIT Want to know exactly what it is that she "GOT"?
SHOW METhis driver wants to see something...
SHYNON ..."you crazy...diamond" (that would be Pink Floyd -- the lyric goes "Shine on you crazy diamond"). Thanks to Randy W. in NC.
SISSYGRLInteresting, if a self-assessment. This one spotted by Randy W. in NC.
SLIMSEXY Hmmmnh, guys don't generally tend to choose "sexy" as a self-classification adjective, so I'm assuming this was a female driver with a confident opinion of self (or perhaps a faulty opinion of self...?). Thanks to Randy W. for this.
SODOWE"WE" also do/have(?) something? --wonder what that 'something' might be?...
SPOT 1 Probably intended to mean SPOT ON (British version of "just right" or "exactly right")
STILLDA1a very confident individual! Apparently wants us to be sure that she/he has not (yet) been overtaken... . Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this one.
STUNNING This plate was on an MB coupe. Wonder if it's a reflection on the driver (i.e., driver's own opinion of self), or of the vehicle? Thanks to Randy W. for this one...
SUFFER! Sounds threatening, this one; the way it's presented makes it sound like a directive--but even a suggestion sounds threatening... .
SUTHNGAL A gal from the South. Thanks to Randy W. for spotting this one...
SWEETNSSomething that sweetens? Or, "Sweet'ns" as in a person?...
TASTEE Wonder what's so yummy?
TIRED Aren't we all, much of the time? This individual is apparently tired ALL the time--or tired OF something...
TORTURE Not sure, what this driver means by this...
TRAIN2WIN Possibly an athlete's reference, but in fact it could apply to almost any pursuit...
TRUMAGIC No way to figure out the reference on this one (what, exactly, is true magic? The driver? Actual magic? Some other thing--possibly the vehicle, which was a silver Accura...
UAHATERCommenting on someone else's character, I presume...
UBROKET1Haha, finger pointing here! "You broke it"--and there's a "1", thus someone else before this driver wanted to point out the same fact and got the original plate (i.e., with no number)!
UL GET 8This looks like a warning of some kind... "You'll get ate"???
UNDERDAWGHa, I like this one! Credit for this spot goes to Randy W.
UNTMOCHA"Mocha" pops up a lot on license plates, together with "brown" and in reference to color, sometimes as a euphemism for African-American ethnicity. This person seems to be of the opinion that someone else is NOT "brown" (African-American?)...
UPDDUBS"Up D Dubs"? Not quite sure how to call this one...Viewed in Nashville, TN
U R LAME Well, this one's definitely directed at someone other than the driver!
U$NT RDY I'm thinking this suggest that the US is NOT READY--though, not ready for what? Just about everything? Possibly... .
WAKE4ME2 I could understand this if it were WAIT4ME2, but I am somewhat at a loss with the WAKE 4 ME angle... .
WA$ HI$ Haha, no question about THIS observation...The end of wedded bliss, pain! (or in her case, pain--but ultimately pleasure). Thanks to Donovan for this one!
WELUVLAX Los Angeles airport?? I hope it doesn't mean these folks love... laxatives??? Not sure what else LAX might represent...
WHTALADY Observation about a friend? Or about the driver? I suppose it depends on the driver's gender (not recorded)..
WHATOFIT This driver is certainly putting their opinion out there (so what??)...
WIREDThis person is running high? Excited?...
WITCHHad to laugh when I saw this. Not sure whether it should go in the Names category, Observations/Remarks category, or the Character category. It fits in all three!...
YEBOSAYO This driver is probably Korean (or someone who spent some time in Korea), since the telephone greeting in that country is "Yoboseyo" (pronounced "Yobosayo") for "hello". The "YO-" spelling was probably already used...
Y ASK ME Really, I haven't a clue, I'm just making a statement here, so you might as well turn to someone else, haha! ...
YOLO:YMPut this one in the "Observations" category because I have no idea what it means (that is, unless Y.O.L.O. has a meaning that I am not aware of yet...), so it might as well go here.
YB JELUS Haha, a very good question--possibly aimed at an envious partner? A unique spelling for jealous--but it works...Special thanks to Daniel for this contribution
YSHOULDI A good question, why should you, really? How often do you hear this question--especially from kids? And, what's the standard parent reply? "Because I'm telling you to!" Rarely an effective counter. Better: "Because it's in your best interest to do as you're told!"

YUM YUM This driver spends a lot of time thinking about desert, I surmise--though it may be something totally differet that he/she perceives as YUM YUM...
ZALENDO No idea what in Hades this means... . Anyone out there got any suggestion?
Y-U-ON-ME Meaning-- YOU are following too close? Or, that someone is always hassling this driver?...
YUR IT For all those who liked playing "Tag" as a kid...
