There’s stupid and then there’s whatever you’d call this.
According to The Sacramento Bee, police in Hopkinton, Massachusetts are having a good laugh at it, but they are warning others at the same time not to make fake license plates out of pizza boxes and magic markers.
That’s right, kids. Somebody tried to pass off cardboard from a pizza box as a license plate, and shocker, it didn’t fool anybody. Maybe it was because the driver used a blue magic marker for the state and abbreviated Massachusetts, or maybe it’s because he used a green magic marker to write down a random assortment of letters and numbers. Or maybe he or she just got pulled over for driving a shitty Buick.
Whatever the case may be, police have a simple message for those who are thinking about doing something similar in the near future.
“Don’t,” the Hopkinton Police Department’s Facebook page read. “But if you do, make sure not to use cardboard from a pizza box and magic markers.”
The driver was cited for operating an uninsured and unregistered vehicle and attaching “fake home made” plates. Luckily for him or her though, there was no extra ticket issued for being a moron.
