Recently a gentleman looked at my license plate and asked me:

" Who is WW FRY ?"

Yes, I did explain the plate's real meaning.

Bill, I don't think Ira uses license plates, it's a plate holder not holding anything...

The title of this thread suggests that Ira's extensive cultural background includes "Smut" by Tom Lehrer. One of the versus is:

All books can be indecent books
Though recent books are bolder
For filth, I'm glad to say, is in
The mind of the beholder

When correctly viewed
Everything is lewd
I could tell you things about Peter Pan
And the Wizard of Oz, there's a dirty old man

Jeff, it had to be a white Sharpie as the bumpers are black.

What about a silver Sharpie?
