personalised licence plates can range from the sublime to the ridiculous. Most of the time, they lean markedly more towards the crazy side.In a way, a vanity plate is like a tattoo for your car. They are each unique and work as a way to express individuality.

The good part is that once you are tired of a vanity plate, it is far easier to remove than a tattoo. There are no painful laser treatments, just five minutes with a screwdriver and a trip to the DMV.

On second thought, laser treatment might be preferable.

We combed through a number of photos to find some of the strangest vanity plates on the road. You’ll notice that the majority are from the great commonwealth of Virginia.

This is actually Justin Timberlake's car.

It seems there's at least one Billy Madison fan in Germany.

Seems like a Mustang would be a more appropriate car for a horse fan.

Bacon is awesome, but so awesome that you need to tell the world?

That's an easy way to get pulled over.

Final tip: not every last name is suitable for a licence plate.
