See that? That's an example of a good vanity license plate. Not everyone has figured out this whole "humor" thing, as Jalopnik readers demonstrate with these ten cringe-worthy custom plates.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day — our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!

10.) DATE ME

Suggested By: 62imperialcrown

Why it's awful: This plate is on a totally sweet rusty old Firebird, if you're curious. It must have been a real lady killer when it was new. What's your sign, baby?

Why it's awful: Found near Phoenix, this one doesn't make much sense until you see it in the rearview mirror. Have fun explaining to your date that your plate reads "buttsex," and have fun going home alone that night.

Why it's awful: Found in Reston, Virginia, here's a guy with a lot of anger at women and (one can only assume) no friends.

7.) 2GLR 1CP

Suggested By: docb

Why it's awful: The owner of this Integra almost certainly got this license plate "for teh lulz," but we're all just shaking our heads. That video was gross, dude.

Why it's awful: The facepalm is strong with this one, approved by the New York DMV in 2009.

Why it's awful: Even I can tell you that this isn't going to get you laid.

4.) PEDO

Suggested By: SennaMP4

Why it's awful: Now I don't speak Spanish, but the internet tells me that pedo informally means "fart." It's possible this Jeep owner isn't trying to pick up some kids at school who aren't his, but you could just as well assume that pedobear is driving.

Why it's awful: Ana just wanted to show off her Lexus LS400, but her custom plate didn't quite work out the way she'd planned.

Why it's awful: Soccer mom Dana Cobb just liked to dress her 12-year-old daughters in pink, and her plates were meant to show that. That is, until the Virginia DMV revoked them on the grounds that she was a sex pervert. We can understand how they got this mixed up with the shocker.

1.) 14CV88

Suggested By: SennaMP4

Why it's awful: The graphics are easy to understand, but the plate needs explaining. "14" stands for a white supremacist's fourteen-word motto: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." "CV" stands for "Confederate Veteran," and "88" stands for the eighth letter of the alphabet twice in a row. That's H-H, or "Heil Hitler." Yeah, this one got revoked by the Virginia DMV.
