Licensed To Ill

The new license plates are obviously mierda.

Is that the best our prison convicts and wardens could produce (I’m assuming our prison inmates make license plates, if they don’t then I’ve obviously spent too much time living abroad – but let’s assume they don’t, then maybe they should)? But seriously, if you are going to produce a decent license plate you need several elements (in my humble opinion):

1. A local or geographic fixture (i.e. The Kuwait Towers – if that is unacceptable a drawing of a Hubbly-Bubbly will suffice; if that is unacceptable then a picture of a dead horse).

2. Decent Font (and it would help to have the English word: “Kuwait” in BOLD as well) and a tag line as well, you know how Florida has “Sunshine State,” maybe we should have something like “Land of Broken Promises” or “Go With The Flow” under Kuwait.

3. One set of numbers – easier to remember so we can report that turd in the Hummer who almost ran over the senior citizen exiting Marina Crescent’s Johnny Rockets.

As horrendous as the new license plates are, they are a tad better than these:

  1. Amazing. All that effort and the result is a plate that manages to be less attractive than both Syria’s and Iraq’s.
    What a pity about the tag line. “Cuckoo for Kuwait”; “Kuwait: waiting for you”; the delightfully bad puns are endless.
    As for the country name, at least they could have gone 21st c and written it Q8.

  2. David Lettermans Top 10 Kuwait Plate tag lines:
    10) Vacation in Kuwait, and feel better about your home country.
    9) If you have a complaint about my driving…don’t bother calling, I have big wasta
    8) NO Taxation…..NO Representation
    7) Welcome to Wonderful Kuwait (at least it’s not Riyadh)
    6) Taxes? … We don’t need no stinking taxes.
    5) Home of the Grilling Parliament
    4) The 51st State
    3) Kuwait…But its a dry heat!
    2) Welcome to Kuwait…Men to the left and Women to the right
    1) If you can read this you are driving too dam close
