Just like catchy blog titles or ad headlines, clever license plates are also a lot of fun.These two plates are on cars in a condo garage in San Francisco. I don't know the owner of "4TUITUS" but I like his car and think the plate is quite apt.Now, this second plate, "NO SHMPU" leaves one with no ...
