Down a Dark Alley – 6/16

Luke, I am your father.

Luke, I am your father.

In my first plate for this week we have Darth Vader.  I know he’s not my father, but apparently he was Luke Skywalker’s.  He is a menacing character from the Star Wars saga, and I don’t believe his personality lent itself to appearing on talk shows.  Son Jon tells me, “While he did kill Emperor Palpatine (which was a good thing), he was very much on the “dark side of things.”  Son Mike says, “He’s my homie! a real bad ass.”   Therefore, I place Darth Vader on my list of people (characters?) that I would not like to meet in a dark alley.

Somebody call the bug man!

Next we have the Black Widow.  When catching a vanity plate, a lot of things go through your mind: what is the owner trying to say, is it about the car or the driver, etc.  With this one it’s obvious on the first count, and I’m hoping that the driver is not a woman who kills  her mate.  My husband hates spiders more that anyone I know…hmmmm.  The boys and I have gone so far as to put fake ones in his shower on April Fool’s Day.     This is an extremely clever plate considering the red accents in the paint job.  Here is a link that may clear up your thoughts on a real black widow spider.

Zombie=a soulless corpse.

Zombie=a soulless corpse.

Zombies!!  Run!!  Please note the white decal family on the window.  I’ve never actually known a zombie, let alone an entire family, but these folks must be pretty proud of their lot in life.  Also, I find it very curious that they are members of some sort of response team.  According to the plate there are two other such families here in Missouri.  Can you imagine?  I will let you form your own opinion about the relationship of once being a US Postal Worker, and now proudly displaying your Zombie Status.

Crazy people out there.

Crazy people out there.

My last plate this week is about a driver that has gone completely mad.  Anyone who openly displays a medically treatable  mental status is crazy.  Enough said.

By the way, Happy Father’s Day to Darth Vader, all men who have not been killed by their mates, Zombies, the otherwise insane, the wonderful men reading this post, and especially husband Brad.  PS  I wonder what my own father’s vanity plate might read?!

    Did you notice the Dead Head sticker on the Zombie car? Coincidence?

    I think your Dad’s plate would read: Stp On It This is if we could have 7 characters on our plates.

    I like the fact that the zombie family are prepared to defend against zombie outbreaks while apparently being zombies themselves. Perhaps this makes them uniquely qualified, or at the very least, innoculated vs. zombie virus. They are free thinkers as evidenced by the Dead sticker, and yet cautious and thoughtful enough to be AAA members… you can’t be too careful!
