Vanity plates and bumper stickers are curious forms of expression. Most of the time they are cliche and unnecessary. They don't tell you much more than you can already surmise just by looking at the type of car and the person driving. The little white people stickers in the back window of minivans and suburbans are the funniest. It's certainly a Utahism to have so many kid stickers they stretch the entire width of the oversized back window. It's even funnier that they want to document every one of the 14 occupants inside.
Today as I was driving to work I pulled up behind a car with a vanity plate that said "DSERVET." This was the message on a little white Hyundai with a blue fender and a smashed-in side door. I guess they truly feel that they deserve it.
