I’d Like To Buy a Vowel

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

The Ford Taurus in front of me was a strange metallic gray. It was almost lavendar, but not quite blue or pink enough to be classified as anything but gray. There were no bumper stickers or license plate holders saying anything but the license plate read:


At first glance, I thought it meant, “Uber-Silly.” Super Silly. Kind of like Woody Woodpecker or Daffy Duck. It took me a few seconds to realize that there was a “C” in the mix, ruining everything. “Uber-Sicily?” That doesn’t make any sense. Super Italian. That didn’t work because Uber is a German-based prefix.

I’m at a loss…



  1. Perhaps it’s “Uber Scaly”? They like them some lizards or snakes. My brain is now stuck on this and I will have to ponder it further.

  2. Or perhaps it’s UBER-SCULLY? Like a big X-Files fan?
