  • On Your Mark....

    Today I am starting a little game, which will reappear sporadically as new fodder is discovered. It's a little trivia game that will normally have no certified correct answer, but the person with the most creative, outrageous answer, or the one closest to mine, wins my admiration for the day, as well as an Intarwebs Warm Fuzzy.

    The game? It's called, "What hell does that mean?!"

    How do we play? Well, as I tool about town in the Family Campster, I spot personalized plates all the time. Most are local, a few are from out of state. Occasionally, the creativity-challenged will have obvious plates with the initials of the two adults in possession of the car. But there are always the plates with the worked-over spelling that makes you just stare until you nearly rear-end them.

    I'll post a plate, and anyone can interpret and share their ideas about that plate. Try to be creative, but post whatever stirs your brain. I do reserve the right to delete anything that offends me; if it offends you, stop reading. Remember, I'm the important one here. :)

    And so to start this fantabulous adventure in insanity, I give you your first plate:

    ARTC KNT

    I know what I thought when I first saw it. Go ahead and tell me what you think it says.

    Go on. You know you want to.

    Also, feel free to email me with any plates you saw that you think would lend to this game. You don't need to say what type of car, or even what state.

    I just want to wish you good luck. We're all counting on you.

    I know exactly what ARTC KNT is.

    Obviously, the driver of this vehicle is of Inuit descent and is using the Inuit language to express their pleasure in knitted arctic textiles.

    As everyone knows, the reason the Inuit do not use many vowels in their language is to keep their mouths closed in the brutally cold environment so as not to shatter their teeth or get a frostbitten tongue when speaking.

    It's a very confusing language as I'm sure you can imagine.

    I would say that it refers to an Arctic (Artic to southerners) Knot, known to be a secure knot capable of remaining tied for the months or years that it takes to drag a glacier into place.

    yeah, yeah, yeah. All yous smarty-pants peoples. Whatev.

    The vehicle in question did have the words "Artic Knight" on the back window, and so I accepted that the plate couldn't possibly stand for "artsy knut" which made no sense whatsoever.
