If I ever got a vanity plate it would be something like !II11I or ODDOOD.

This is the exact same reason I have wondered why black people always tattoo their names on themselves.

this is why I don't put my callsign on my plate

/w1mjm
//its also why my callsign is registered to my place of business and not my home.

Dumb: One of my coworkers had a friend with TWUCK vanity plates on his Toyota pickup. (20 years ago, when vanity plates were uncommon)

Dumber: After a large string of home burglaries one summer, neighbors were asked by police if they saw any unusual vehicles in the area. "Hmmm... there was a pickup with TWUCK plates... does that help?"

I don't think I would ever make fun of Fisnik Gashi's name because:

1) He is 20 years old
2) He drives a Mercedes with a vanity plate
3) He has a record of prior arrests
4) He keeps a baseball bat in his car.

What version of the Mafia do Yugoslavs work for?

FTA:

The discussion was between a friend of the victim and a friend of Gashi's about an alleged sexual assault involving a cousin of the victim's friend.


Uhh...who?

"Gashi"? I don't think the state would have allowed him to have it without the final i.

Regarding the BLOND plate...Yesterday, during a rainstorm, I stopped to fill my tank.

At the pump across from me, there was a BLOND using a squeegee to carefully remove all the water drips from her car windows, seemingly oblivious to the fact that her car windows would be wet again in 10 seconds as soon as she drove away from under the filling station canopy.

Nothing like reinforcing the stereotype.

How is hitting someone in the head with a baseball bat 1st degree assault and not simply attempted murder?
 
2009-11-20 01:23:26 PM  
"Hey Lou, you hear the one about the guy couldn't afford personalized plates so he changed his name to J3L2404?"

"Yah, that's a good one"

IANAL, but I'd hope it'd have to do with whether the attacker attempted murder.

This guy, more specifically, sounds like the Albanian mafia. Nasty people these.

I overheard this yesterday at the 31 Flavors and it sounded intense.

Thinking of getting some vanity plates, just checked my state and "ZOMG" is available.

I dunno, should I? Any other ideas? I thought about maybe HENTAI (also available) but that'd be tough to explain to the family, and even worse if they googled.

Are these reporters idiots? If someone was beaten with a baseball bat, that is not assault. That's BATTERY. Assault is threatening to cause such harm.

Wait what?

"The discussion was between a friend of the victim and a friend of Gashi's about an alleged sexual assault involving a cousin of the victim's friend"

this whole story is by proxy...

sez someone who's not really typing this but saying it..

With a name like Gashi, shouldn't it have been a knife attack?
