    Be careful when choosing personalized plates

    I saw one that made me chuckle today. Because of the limited number of characters, they omitted the space between two words. The placement of that space, however, is critical to the meaning of the slogan. It read:

    HAWKSTD

    Choose carefully, my friends.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Rather appropriate, I'd say. And not for their intended meaning, either.

    I figured out the omitted letters:

    HAWKSTUPID

    Re: Be careful when choosing personalized plates

    Actually, the plate is in code. The cryptography is a simple letter substitution method popular with the military during WWI. The decoded plate reads "Hawkeye Oedipus Complex".

    Are you sure it's not "Messiah Complex"?

    Well as we all know from the 2005 game, Herky has herpies... so I think that narrows it down quite a bit

    I saw a ISU plate yesterday that said "UNI UI2" ... it was so wishywashy it made my stomach churn, take a stand man! or just get standard plates.

    I hate it when people are on the fence like that! Agree, take a stand!

    Re: Be careful when choosing personalized plates

    There is a Hawkeye plate in Urbandale that says: WHOISCY.

    I would rather prop my own team than mention the other.

    Cy is the guy that beats you on a regular basis!
