Witty in 7 Letters or Less

Madison may be the personalized license plate capital of the United States. [example: QUIRKY] Why do we see five or more vanity plates per day here? [MTHRSHP] We have a liberal Department of Transportation policy, a low initial investment, and an individualist culture. [SNAZZY] Instead of a $100 up front fee for a specialized plate, in Wisconsin it’s $15 a year plus the standard renewal fees. [HOOORAY] 650,000 people live in our metropolitan area. [HI THERE] From the creative use of 7 letters we’ve seen on license plates around town, many people are extremely clever! [JAZITUP] Give them a tiny blank slate of expression and VOILA (another example!)

In our car during the daily commute our passengers amuse themselves by searching for a sagacious turn of phrase on the vehicles around us. [GR8 KYDZ] Each day we keep a small notebook of the best plates. [LE PAWZ] Our rules are no proper names and no people’s initials. [SO THERE] For five years we have chronicled the funniest, smartest and punniest ones. [NOT2LT] Last year a new world opened up to us; 8 letters or numbers on plate identifications, because our population increased. [WDSMNHRT] The possibilities are enormous. [NEGOC8TR]

Here are our top 10 funniest and punniest:

  1. I H8 SNOW
  2. ET WI CHZ
  4. MUGGL3
  7. ANT MRY (VW Bug)
  9. B N NAUTY

Are there vanity plates in your town? Would you get one if the price were an additional $15 a year and you travel by car? What letters or numbers would you choose? Hm, how about FKFLMNCO ? <wink>

  1. Very creative you guys are in Wisconsin…great idea, too bad they don’t believe in individual expression, expressed in your licence plate, in the European Union!
