Hello!  It’s been almost two months since I did one of these here vanity plate posts.  First, it was the Pope.  Luckily, that went off without a hitch.  But no sooner than that had passed than I found myself wrapped up in all things Halloween-y.  And that…flew by.  Good lord, where does the time go?  Well, even as it passes us by, vanity, it would seem, is here to stay.  To wit:

Ha ha, so clever! Except you know, when you're parked and someone walks by and takes a picture. Then it's the other way around. Not so clever now, are you? Not so clever now?!

As in stimulant? I'm not so sure this plate isn't just another invitation to get pulled over by the cops. Call it a hunch.

So when you google the term "kneebar" you get some striking images like this one. This means either this person's talking a heap of trash or is the real deal. You're welcome to find out but I believe that discretion is the better part of valor in this case.
