There's something about vanity license plates that can cause a severe case of eye-roll. This person refuses to make do with a random assortment of letters and numbers like the rest of us and insists on making a statement. With funny car plates. "Oh, look at me, everybody!"

Well not always. While some use the custom license plate opportunity to promote themselves, their wealth, and the lack of a good sense of humor, others take advantage of this tiny piece of advertising real-estate to make us laugh. Because on a long drive, any portion of entertainment on the roads should be welcomed, shouldn't it?

While the DMV and other automobile authorities do try to keep things civilized and take the fun out of vanity plates, these people have found a way regardless. From best puns and Pokemon to even getting their puppy involved, this list compiled by Bored Panda is the very best of funny license plate creativity!

Scroll down below to check these glorious license plate ideas out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Every vehicle has to display a license plate, but how much do you really know about them? Well, strap in and get ready for a treat, because we are about to hit you with some absolutely scintillating vehicle registration facts!

In the U.S., New York was the first state to require that vehicles display a license plate, doing so in 1901. However, Massachusetts was the first state to have state-issued plates, issuing them in 1903. Before New York created state-issued plates, drivers had to make their own which they did by writing their initials on a vehicle-identifying tag.

The very first state-issued license plate in Massachusetts was short and sweet, reading simply “1.” It was registered to a guy named Frederick Tudor, and a member of his family still holds an active registration on the cool license plate today!

According to the blog Chrysler Capital, the first state-issued license plates were made of iron covered with porcelain enamel. "Delaware still offers a porcelain plate and is the only state to continue to do so. The starting fee for the porcelain version is $110."

"Because the fragility of the porcelain plates made them impractical, manufacturers experimented with replacement materials such as cardboard, leather and even pressed soybeans."

Idaho was the first state to manufacture license plates with a graphic on them in 1928. Fittingly for Idaho, the graphic was a potato.

Soon after, Pennsylvania produced the first personalized license plate in 1931. According to licenseplates.tv, "As Americans became more prosperous, custom or official vanity license plates became very popular."

"The increased fees for custom, personalized or vanity official license plates have earned the states hundreds of millions of dollars and a great source of tax revenue for education (colleges), wildlife conservation and other projects."

Today, all but three states make use of the cheap labor supplied by correctional facilities to produce their license plates. Alaska, Hawaii and Oregon are the exceptions, contracting privately-owned manufacturers to produce their state-issued plates.

Vehicles owned by the United States Postal Service do not require license plates, and don't display them.

Finally, all 50 states allow the use of vanity plates. Out of the 50, Virginia has the highest percentage of custom plates, followed by New Hampshire and Illinois. At the other end of the scale, Texas has the lowest use of custom plates. What does that say about these states?

Wow. These people need life-time driving bans! I had a friend that used to work 2 very busy jobs, which meant she had very little time in between for dinner, so she'd literally take a plate of steak, mash and peas and sit it on her lap and ate it with a fork whilst she drove. Mental!!!

We'll see who's laughing when he has to stop after a 100 miles and recharge for hours. Normal cars can go for hundreds of miles and only take 5 minutes to refill.
