Mystery Driver

Okay, okay, for all my old followers (like 10 of you), you know I have this fascination with personalized license plates. I keep seeing ones I'm dying to share with ya'll.

So I had this fabulous idea for a blog game. I will post a license plate, and we, the literary bloggers of the world, are going to solve the mystery of why they put that on their car. Build a characterization and back story. Fun, no?

The rules:
  1. Only post ONE bit of information per comment (so the story can grow)
  2. Try to build off previous posts where possible
  3. Keep it clean (children's lit, right?)
  4. HAVE FUN!
I'll try to pull it all together in a posting later in the week.

So here's an example:  WYLD ELF

1st comment: This is a girl. For sure!
2nd comment: She watched Lord of the Rings and developed an unhealthy fascination with Orlando Bloom.
3rd comment: Is there such a thing as an "unhealthy" fascination with Orlando Bloom? *sigh* Okay, okay, she has pointed ears.
4th comment: Her mother read "Where the Wild Things Are" to her as a child.

Well you get the idea.

So we'll see how it goes, and maybe this will fizzle, but all I have to say is CHINESE TAKE-OUT, baby!

This week's License Plate:   OHH MAN

(And yes, 100% authentic)

Sounds like fun!

OHH MAN- I'll bet the OHH stands for his business rather than his name. Like he's part of the Oklahoma Hunting Habilitation program. Or something:)

And his Yoga chant follows him wherever he goes ... Ohhhmmmmm.

Christine Fonseca said...

Hahahaha....This is the plate for a person who is WHINY and always uttering "Ohhh Man" every time something doesn't go his way.

His grandfather invented Oh's cereal. His grandfather's license place said oh man and his father's said ohh man.

Janet Johnson said...

There must have been a kafuffel at the DMV. He really meant to put GQ instead of OHH.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

He thinks he's a stud with a hot car. "Ohh, man" is what he imagines all the females in town saying as he drives by. :-)

For sure OHH stands for, Orgasmic, Hot and Horny. ;)

I'm picturing this on a 1980's Trans Am- the one that has the bird spreading his wings on the hood. He'd have to be wearing the metallic cop sunglasses, and have feathered hair. Ohh Man!
BTW, I love that you used "kafuffel" in your comment! Ha ha! That makes me laugh!

He acrtually meant for it to say OLD MAN, but forgot his glasses. :)

Jessie Oliveros said...

Somebody forgot rule number three.

He-hem...He forgot his glasses because he was too busy arguing with his wife about which weather channel was best.

Jackee said...

Fun idea! I love it. Okay, everyone took ideas I had so here's all I could think of:

He is a deposed sultan from Oman, Asia living in the US. He keeps the license plate as a tracer for his underground followers to find him in case there is ever an insurgent effort to pull him out of exile and place him back upon the throne.

My addition...
Now he doesn't like driving his car anywhere and blames Jim Cantore for having the wrong license plate.
