Seen on Sunday, between Carmarthenshire and Deptford:

  • B4 EVE - obviously an evolutionist rather than a creationist

  • 2 BE on a car parked on the Chelsea Embankment. Hmm, perfect for an unequivocal Shakespearean actor. 2 Be or NOT 2B

And yesterday in Royston, a big maroon Rolls Royce whose owner had managed to get 'PARKER'. Well, by cheating - the 'A' was a rivet job, and I'm not quite sure how he'd done the 'R'. So it was a total cheat, but the owner had done it on the right car.
