Make a statement with your plate?

October 26, 2009 —


I love trying to figure out the shorthand in people’s custom license plates. (Yes, I hear your dork alert going off. Who cares; I’m a word nerd.) So I’ve enjoyed seeing some clever DMU-related plates. And if you’ve been creeped out by someone snapping a photo of your car, no worries, it was probably just me!

This top photo I took a few years ago when I interviewed one of our D.P.T. alumni. The bottom two I snapped in or near our DMU parking lot.

Do you have a clever plate? What’s it say?? Or do you have an idea of what’ll put on your plate after graduation?
