Creative license…plates and bumper stickers

Sitting at red lights can be rather boring, except when the driver in front of you has a clever bumper sticker or license plate. It’s sort of sad that I never get a chance to thank the owners of these vehicles for the small moments of entertainment they provide me. If I were to hop out of my car to thank them they’d probably think I was a carjacker or a panhandler, so I just stay in my car and secretly take photos instead. Here are two that I photographed recently.

AT-ATs are Awesome-Awesome.

Borg cube
At first, I thought this car was a Nissan Cube, which would have squared the Borg Cube humor. Upon closer inspection it’s actually a Honda Element, but it’s still rather cube-shaped.

Picking a favorite between these two would inevitably spark a Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate. The only true way to pick a winner would be in a drag race.

My dad always played a game when we were kids on long trips, you have to make a word out of licence plates, keeping the letters in the correct order. (In Australia, plates are generally 3 letters then 3 numbers.) So if the letters were SMO, that could be smoke, or salmon, but not mouse.

Then I moved to the ACT (Australian Capital Territory), and I can’t play it with my own children because all licence plates here start with Y, except government cars that start with Z. You run out of options pretty quickly.

I would just like to point out the bumpersticker on the BORGCUBE car for Knox College. That’s where I went to school and I was VERY excited to see it!
