So. Yep. But hey, Facebook, it's my name.

Keeping with the Seinfeld theme... Mulva? Is that you?

No, the poster was talking about the a&w root beer commercial.

Me neither. My SO has vanity plates because he wants to be able to easily spot his black car (and to support a good cause), not because he wants other drivers to know his name. The numbers/letters on his plates are from an old tv show, and really have nothing to do with his identity.

My sister has the same first two initials, but never married someone whose last name started with a "K".

I had a teacher named Mrs ***** (Quebec Uniform Echo Echo Romeo). I don't think she would have ever gotten that license plate.

I'm outraged over this. Well, not really. Does anyone need a vanity plate?

Can you do that in Canada? There's no system to do that in the US.
