“Can ate ian” ?

CAN8IAN.jpg I must admit, I’ve been far more aware of “out there” license plates since Don’s GO IV IT post, but I think this one takes the biscuit. I’m not sure how I managed to miss this plate until I almost slammed into the attached vehicle when the blonde behind the wheel slammed on her breaks as the crosswalk timer hit 02 on M Street and Wisconsin this morning. I sat gawking at the plate with the words “Canateian”, “Canadian”, ‘Can…ate….ian’, ‘wait, who’s Can and why did he eat Ian?’ running through my head.

So fellow DCers, what other crazy plates do you see whilst walking/biking/hopping/running/skating/scootering around the district?

    I saw a van the other day with the license plate “CUT & RUN”, which I thought was weird. If the guy was a right winger, why would he want to advertise a position he doesn’t agree with, and if they guy was a left winger, why would he want to advertise mischaracterization of his position?

    On the other hand, maybe the guy is just a barber who likes marathons.

    I like the idea of the van owner being a barber and a runner, though perhaps ultras instead of those pesky marathons.

    Chris – what kind of fountain pen is used in the “about” section of your website (or the website you linked)?
