Typewriter Rodeo: Custom License Plates

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Putting a personalized license plate on your car could be about you, or it could be about a team you love, or maybe one you hate. They’re also a win for the state treasury.

Custom License Plates

Sometimes your car

Doesn’t say quite enough

And so you spell it out —

IMSOTUF

 

Other times you want

To make people laugh

So you spell out that smell–

VBADGAS

 

From the 2FAST4U’s

To the IM-SLOW’s

They’re always on display

Little license plate shows

 

From the coveted GIG-EM

To yes, BEAT OU

There’s GOHORNS and GOBEARS

And ILUVTCU

 

Yup they’re one part vain

And one part clever

And there’s nothing wrong with that:

TX4EVER
