Default Personalized License Plates - List interesting ones you've seen

Inspired by Aeyyyyyy's and Kaia's posts in this thread, I thought it'd be interesting to have a thread with weird/different/interesting personalized license plates people have seen. My one friend and I always call each other when we see them on the road.

I'll start things off with my all-time favorite personalized plate that I've ever seen: DY DX ... I remember seeing it and saying to myself, "Hmmm, DY DX, why does that sound so familiar to me? DY DX. What is that? I should know that." Duh. I was just comforted to know that there were bigger math geeks out there than I, and they were so proud of their math-geekiness that they felt it necessary to put it on their license plate.

Just saw this one today: TRY2RLX

Heard a guy on the radio say that he had this plate:
3M TA3

Imagine seeing that in your rearview mirror on the front bumper of the car behind you.

I'm slow today...what does this mean? Sorry.

I saw a license plate frame recently that said: I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

I once saw a car in VA that was an ugly yellow color. The plate said "CAT PEE"
I almost peed my pants laughing so hard that someone first of all paid a lot of money for a car to be that ugly color and then to spend even more money to personalize their plates

I assume you're talking about the mathematician, right?
