Superstitious twits

We have a family friend who recently bough t a new vehicle. The make and type of vehicle are irrelevant to this story, but the temporary tag is not.

Turns out that the tag’s clearly-marked expiration date is June 6, 2006, or 6-6-06.

Said friend, for the first day she drove it around town, garnered several sincere and sometimes horrified questions about how she could even consider driving a vehicle bearing the mark of the beast or at least a fair poker hand.

I look nervously out my window these days, awaiting the return of witch burning. Are we really in the 21st century?

But she weighs more than a duck, which means she's not made of wood and she's not inflammable

My friend Tony owns a car with the numberplate 666. Says he loves it and he's had the plate for about 40 years on a succession of cars. He once drove it into Italy from France and the border guard ran out and just raised the barrier shouting "Sei sei sei" and crossing himself.
