Moronic? Ironic? You Tell Me.

We were driving down the road the other day when this vehicle caught my attention:

Is it just me, or is that a bit ironic/moronic that somebody who drives a mini-van has a license plate preaching abstinence?

It's not just you. I especially would have to go with the latter (moronic) option.

That's great that you caught that!

Hmmmmm...maybe they just drive all their dogs around?

July 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterNap Warden

Moronic. Definitely.

Funny in a sad way...but still moronic *G*

Could be a former alcoholic that needs constant reminding? Or sexaholic . . .

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLaskiGal

perhaps it is to remind their many many girl children not to kiss little boys at chuck e. cheese?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterthe planet of janet

um, maybe it's regret...

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMisty

What they need now is one of those license plate frames that says:

"Do as I say, NOT as I do"

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterThe Sports Mama

Since I am one, I'm going to say its Mormonic.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCecily R

could be talking about chocolate.

Or just met as many morons I have have this week and feel like PAYING them to not procreate.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKelley

Not ironic at all...someone that PREACHY and full of themselves, obviously needs lots of space for their ego.


HA! That's funny. I wonder how many kids they have!

Is it just me, or is that a bit ironic/moronic that somebody who drives a mini-van has a license plate preaching abstinence?...

Maybe thats WHY they have that license plate-- 'don't make the same mistakes I did or you'll end up like this!!'

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterheather

Maybe it's a cautionary tale. "If you don't practice abstinence you will end up driving one of these."

You should send that to Leno :-)

Peace - D

I'm going with wise, tired and "sick of these kids tearing up my house and making noise and whining and crying and oh my GOD, why won't they strop fighting!"

but maybe I'm projecting a little...

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterGina

Maybe it's a Mormon church van?? ;)

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAndreAnna

Ha! Good point. It always annoys me when people use their cars to preach or give their political or religious views. With all the road rage that occurs today, why would you give someone a reason to want to smash into you?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJen

ha ha ha

maybe with a van full of kids- they were wishing they would have abstained! :)

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPam


That's all I've got.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMadame Queen

They must be the parents of ugly babies and are trying to keep others from the same mistake they made . . .

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTranny Head

I'm hoping they're begging others not to follow their stupidity.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

No, wait. They probably got custom plates just as their oldest daughter started driving.

Nothing like driving around the Abstinence-mobile (complete with car seats inside) to turn off the boyfriend.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Bwhahaha! Ok, that't just punny! What would be even funnier is if there were 12 children in the backseat!

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

Bwhahahaha at Tranny's comment.
That is pretty moronic. I love that you found ti and took its pic for me to smile!

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMarmarbug

Hee hee! Too funny.

Did you get a look at the driver?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterskiplovey

Oh my...... hysterical. I have to see if that is taken in OH.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterOHmommy

My guess is that they have teens and they don't want them to end up like their folks did...

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLeanne

ha! Maybe it's, hind sight is always 20/20, ya know. They have a mess of kids but secretly wished they used a condom? At least every once in a while?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterVal

LOL, that's very funny

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJenty

Wonder if they're in the running for the Darwin Awards...

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterwendy

Hehehe! That is too funny.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

I am going to go out on a limb and say 'Genius!' I don't think there is a teenage boy or girl in the world that would ask to borrow the ol' mini-van with that as its license plate. Those parents are saving themselves a lot of battles.

Maybe they wish they'd thought of it earlier. hehe.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterElaine A.

I'm all for preaching it, but from your license plate? On a mini-van? I hate them. Is that what the point is? If you put out you have to drive one?

If the 15 year-old me had seen that minivan, I might have actually kept my legs together. I'm just saying.

Because even now, the thoughts of a minivan makes me think a big "o" totally wouldn't be worth it.

I'm confused, btw. When did the Burgh decide to join the bible belt exactly?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCatwoman

Please tell me you got a look at who and how many were in the car!?
Too funny.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered

Maybe they are just sick of all those people getin' busy at traffic lights lol ;)

haha! all aboard!!!!!

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

I love license plates. I ALWAYS look. always.

oh, and would you believe me that my dad's company car when I was in high school said "DOITCTR"
(stood for HWI's Do It yourself hardware stores--aka Do It Centers.)
I totally drove my mom's car to school.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSusie

Maybe after having enough kids to fill a mini-van they have figured out what they did to get them. LOL

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterTammy


Hindsight is 20/20?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle Smiles

Hee, is that all my mom needed to do to get me to listen? Get it printed on her license plate?

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBren

MORONIC in the extreme!!

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJenny H.

very very odd that plate is on a Catholic Assult Vehicle.

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterColleen

Maybe regret. Or maybe for the kids. I lean toward moronic!

July 9, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterjustmylife

LMFAO. Hahahahaaaa!!

July 10, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterImmoral Matriarch

That is great! Just plain great! I wish you had pictures of the boat load of kids in there!

How embrassing for the teens of those parents! And how much fun would we have when it gets dirty writing words in the dust?

I love it!

I'm going with Regret as the their reasoing!

July 10, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMy boys are Army Brats

I have to go with moronic as well. Great that you had your camera to get this shot.

July 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLaurie

"....or this is what happens"

July 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAutumn

That is a little bit retarded. Seriously.

July 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRebecka

They probably have a slew of younguns & don't want to end up with gran dbabies before their time! like "Darling, you WILL be abstinent!"
