I saw the above on a license plate driving home from work Friday. The only other items on the back of the vehicle were a breast cancer support ribbon and another support ribbon. (I think it was black, but I didn't get to read any writing that may have been on it - POW-MIA support, perhaps?)

After my first thought of, hey that's familiar, I realized what it was...
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet...

Following that my thoughts were, in order:
1. A very subtle member or supporter of the GLBT community.
2. A parent of a child on the autism spectrum.
3. A seriously geeky science teacher.

What would you think if you saw this on a license plate?


  1. I would have gone with the subtle supporter, but maybe art teacher could go in the list too.

  2. I would probably be vaguely annoyed by how coy the driver was being. If you're gonna go obscure, write the license plate in l33t speak or something. Go all in, you know? Don't settle for something that most people know, but then be ambiguous about why you've chosen that for your vanity license plate.

    If it were me, I'd probably assume it was a middle-aged man with a thing for unicorns, but I think that's probably just because I'm mean :)

  3. A middle-aged man with a thing for unicorns!?

    I missed that one.
