Field Guide to the Vanity License Plates of Southwestern Ohio: Part 9

hloktty

Today my ongoing typological investigation into the vanity license plates of Southwestern Ohio focuses on all creatures great and small. I’m a cat person, so we’ll start with cats and HLO KTTY.

Moving right along, we’ve got BARECAT, KITNBUS, UCBRCT [I know, I know, this is a school spirit reference, but it’s a cat one as well]:

Dogs are great, too, and here we have LUV A MUT [and who doesn’t love a mutt?], 2DOGLUV and DOGBOX1:

Getting more specific, we’ve got LGL BGLS. Beagles rock and, if they can also provide legal representation, that’s even better:

Vanity license plates can reference farm animals as well, as with 3 COW [I took this photo in a torrential downpour, because my rigorous research knows no limits]:

Out in the wild, we’ve got BEAR TRK and BEAVERZ:

  1. Oh, come now. The KITNBUS is only half of the story with that vehicle. But, I suppose you can save that for a post on “interestingly decorated vehicles”.

  2. My Ohio friends loved this post, and wanted me to express their thanks to you for your efforts. Top work.

  3. Thanks so much; I aim to please!😉 It’s kind of fun to focus my attention on something so ubiquitous, yet so bizarre once you start noticing patterns. It keeps me from walking down the street in a daze, because I’m constantly on the hunt for more random weirdness.
