Infiniti Nbeeyon Ascot???

May California Vlad The Impala (or Impaler)???

@ZuriRollt, Iím with you on these!
Perhaps it's cultural.

May Cali... - this info is irrelevant. This specific plate "number" is registered in other states, too, if you are partial to California, but I chose this one based on photo quality.

So we've got left with just "Vlad the Impala" a play on Vlad the Impaler - you have to pronounce the word "Impala" with almost a Jamaican or British accent (sorry, Brits, I know you've got 1000s of accents, but again, this is irrelevant right now ). So, imp-ail-ah (imp-eil-ah).

You've never heard the phrase "to infinity and beyond"??? It could be cultural, but also generational...and I haven't even watched Toy Story until last year.

Infiniti Nbeeyon - the N is an abbreviation of "and", other ex: rock 'n roll, cash 'n carry; and "beyond" is just a creative way to spell "beyond.

I hope this elucidates the mystery and you can laugh at the goofy plate numbers.

I still don't get it.

Why would anyone buy an Infiniti??

I don't get it either. What does an Infiniti have to do with the number infinity? Is it something to do with both of them not being real?

And I'm totally stumped by that V-lad plate. Is it a clean-living young man who is well informed about nutrition? And Mr Funnybone, most of those thousands of British accents would render "impala" as "imPAHla". Maybe it's something to do with a Bavarian beerfest brass band? Even if not, that's alluringly alliterative.

You wouldn't say "impala" with the first "a" as in apple? That's how I say it, and it sounds close to "impaler".

I've found a job helping a one armed typist do capital letters.

It's shift work.

That's like the old Baskin & Robbins joke:

"Crushed nuts?"
"No, laryngitis"

I just bought a toaster with wifi and internet access.

It's brilliant apart from the pop ups.

I've come to the conclusion 'kale ruins everything' including probably the bin so don't do this kids in case it ruins your bin.
