While driving home last night, I approached a car with an odd vanity plate. At first, I wondered why someone would spell "Clark" with a 'W'. When I got a bit closer, I saw that plate was "CLKWRK", or "clockwork". I was puzzled why they had that for a plate. Possibly I could see it being on something like a VW Beatle, but it was an Audi. So I had no understanding for why the owner wanted "clockwork" for a vanity plate. Then as I passed the car, the color of the car finally registered and I realized that the plate was just half of the reference.

:D

That reminds me of a couple of vehicles that lived in the neighborhood where I used to work. One of them was a black sedan with the plate PINOT. The other had a license plate that said BAABAA, and you can probably figure out what sort of vehicle it was.

I saw that very same Audi TTS a couple of weeks ago and giggled over it. :)

Was it brass colored?

Most interesting vanity plate I saw was a white VW Rabbit. The plate was ML8 ML8.

Best one I've seen recently was the one on a white Nissan cube. It had the chemical compound for sugar.

I saw that one a few months ago and was greatly amused. (I think I posted it to FB.)
