In your travels, you have noticed some entertaining personalized license plates. However, not every request for a personalized plate is accepted. Looking through the list provided by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, I saw some that would look quite well on someone's vehicle. Others would make you give a funny look to the driver.

Here are our seven favorites from the list rejected through the first quarter of this year.

    So this person must be a bit of an introvert. Be careful giving them a glance as you pass in traffic, you may get that upside down smile in return.

    For you oil guys out there, this one is for you. Except that the Texas DMV did not accept this as a plate. Why? Maybe it's already taken? Maybe the approver person drives a hybrid.

    This would be for one of them foreigners from the North, like (in my best Ole El Paso yell) New York City?! This one is worthy of a decline.

    In today's political climate, this could either be funny or not so funny. Based on the later, not having this as your plate makes good sense.

    This would make any highly jealous woman give you a look that would melt your door off. Plus, these plates are good for a year. What if you did find a steady man? Things that make you go hmmm.

    What would this sandwich be at the golden arches? Is this a good or bad name for the person behind the wheel? This one was worthy of rejection.
