Summed Up in Seven Characters or Less
I love vanity license plates. Nothing delves into the inner workings of someone’s ego like a personalized plate. While it may seem like a bad case of TMI to some, I relish the fact that some people think that they can be summed up by a combination of six letters and/or numbers (seven in daring states like New York and California). And, not only can they be summed up that succinctly, they actually want to broadcast that overly-simplified version of themselves to the world. It’s downright fascinating.
Case in point: The gentleman driving the Audi A8 on Route 53 in Hingham with the license plate TAX 007. Man, is this guy one bad-ass accountant or what?! [True story; I could not make this up.]
More revealing could be the germaphobe/hypochondriac from Wisconsin (pictured above) whose plate seems very apropos as winter, aka flu season, will be here quicker than it’ll probably take to get ourselves some vaccine.
