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:

Out in the wild, we’ve got BEAR TRK and BEAVERZ:
Also, NOT FISH:
Representing insects are DIVABUG and KIWI BUG:
Lastly, the generic and all-encompassing KIA PET:
This series has been ongoing for over a year. For more, check out Part 1: meta expression, Part 2: sports messaging, and possibly adult content, Part 3: God stuff, Part 4: local businesses, Part 5: professions, Part 6: names and self-designations, Part 7: love and marriage, and Part 8: places.
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”.
Yeah, yeah… Following the URL leads you right to this portal of weirdness. It’s a mostly broken site, but there’s enough for you to shake your head at regardless.
My Ohio friends loved this post, and wanted me to express their thanks to you for your efforts. Top work.
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.
