Small lesson from a vanity plate

A couple of weeks ago a friend and I were driving down a two-lane road and spent several red lights stuck behind the same SUV. It had a vanity plate that read “LSUTIGAH.” As an alum who knows there’s no place like Tiger stadium on a Saturday night, I instantly recognized this as “LSU Tiger.” At the fourth or fifth red light, however, my Yankee friend said, “Gee, what do you suppose that license plate says? Luh-SOO-tig-guh?”

This was a funny story to repeat to my husband, also an LSU fan. But it made me think for a second about the value of having people with lots of different experience, education, and “skill sets” on hand to solve any important problem.

    Excellent point! Funny how something small like that can remind us of important lessons.

    And we have a great time here trying to figure out some of the more obscure letter combinations on vanity plates.

    And then there are times we wish we didn’t understand them. Like the vehicle I was behind recently that had the vanity plate, I kid you not, “EMBALM1″ proudly displayed. Lest I be confused that this was not really what I was seeing, the plate was in a holder that informed me it was owned by a funeral director.

    Good Lord. I guess the rising popularity of cremation is really putting a dent in business. I can hardly wait till they roll out the national ad campaign.

    Can you guess this one:
    HN2QRU
    I’ll give you a hint if you need one.

    Achin’ to Q? (Eat barbecue?)

  6. Renee says:

    It’s a plate on a medical specialist’s car.

  7. Bill says:

    Is it the hip hop group from India known as Hindu Two Live Crew?

  8. Kathy says:

    It’s something “to cure you”, I think. I just can’t figure out the first part.

    HN is mustard gas. Surely not that. “Good for what ails ya!”

  10. Renee says:

    It’s a stretch but it’s a dermatologist’s plate:
    “Itchin’ to cure you” Sorry!

  11. Del says:

    Ah, I see. “Achin’” would be if it were a rheumatologist’s car.

  12. Bill says:

    I should have gotten the “to cure you” part. But “HN”=”itchin” is probably beyond my feeble capabilities.
