Someone Has Discovered ‘The Most Aussie Number Plate’ Ever
| Last updated
Someone has captured the most Aussie number plate ever.
While there could be plenty of arrangements of letters and numbers that would be worthy enough for an accolade like that, there is but one.
The one that has been snapped by a passing motorist simply read ‘Yeah nah’.
‘Yeah nah’, is the oxymoron that’s the epitome of Australian slang, meaning ‘yes, but no’.
It’s the most laddish way to express a difference of opinion or to disagree softly without offending the other person too much - cushioning the fall with a ‘yes’.
You can also flip it around and say 'nah, yeah' if you want to be equally confusing to people who don't use this in their everyday speak.
However, this Aussie driver has taken the phrase to the next level by commemorating it on the back of his vehicle.
Many Reddit users were left in stitches over the Aussie number plate, as one person wrote: “Apparently ‘ya c**t’ was taken!"
Another commented: “I was more thinking of a vegemite inspired plate.”
A third person said: “Just imagine if you had to report them to the police and the cops ask you to read the number plate…”
While another wrote: “Should have been on an old Holden instead of a Jeep.”
No disrespect to all the Holden owners out there.
In March this year, the UK's Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), sent out a list of number plates deemed too ‘offensive’.
Many drivers who put in a request for personalised number plates may be turned down, as they may be too vulgar or allude to swear words, according to Mirror.
A spokesman said: “The vast majority of registration numbers are made available but the agency holds back any combinations that may cause offence, embarrassment, or are in poor taste.
“Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and there are over 50m registrations available on our website with almost endless possibilities of combinations to suit a person’s taste, interests and budget.”
The Scottish Sun reports that earlier this year, a Scot mum was fined £200 (AUD $350 or USD $236.7) by police for having a number plate that read, ‘FK02 AYE’.
The woman was pulled over by an officer while taking her two-year-old son to his nursery.
She told the outlet: "An officer came up to the car and started ranting and raving about how my number plates were illegal and illegally offensive.
"My wee boy was getting quite distressed because I was taking him out and the police were angry with me.
"The officer asked what it meant and went on about how it was wrong - he said it is a 'naughty' number plate."
She added: "Usually, people see it and laugh at it. You wouldn't think it would be that bad that the police would block a nursery because of it."
