    Even though I'm an enlightened yoga guru, I still want to date girls in bikinis in the privacy of my own mind.

    YOGA B LU? YO GAB LU? YO GA BLU?

    I don't get it. I'll take ric's answer.

    Free: I, too, went there. The best I could come up with was "Yogabl U," as in "Loveable You." But … no.

    It totally cracks me up that 50% of the people who've responded to this poll have answered "I have a bong in my trunk."

    John,

    I don't suppose anyone came up with the fact BLU is apparently some underground artists who make surreal graffiti, videos and "art." Looks sort of like the cartoons in Pink Floyd's "The Wall."

    Put that together with yoga and you get either peaceful, terrifying imagery or nihilistic pauses where nothing said leads to self-immolation on urban walls.

    The license-plate holder makes me breathe easier.

    Blonde: You know, it HAS kind of turned into a bit of a photo-centric blog lately. I can't help it. I bought this little Kodak digital, and … then I see stuff, and … Blog Fodder!

    Sam: Really? That plate holder makes you breath easier? It makes me think of Bondage Mermaids.

    yoga blu….. yoga blew….

    maybe this person was unimpressed with yoga, so he quit. like yoga blows? Or he could have really bad spelling.

  • http://www.johnshore.wordpress.com John Shore

    Arlywn: Yes, excellent! The guy is saying, "I took yoga, and it blew. And yoga blowing was so PIVOTAL in my life that I had to commemorate it with this license plate." That's EXCELLENT.

    I knew a guy in 6th grade whose name was Blu. I’m not sure, looking back on it, if that was short for something else (Blue, perhaps?).

    Anyway … maybe that’s him, and he’s out in California teaching yoga these days. That’s my theory.

  • http://ricbooth.wordpress.com ric booth

    John you are BAD. I just read comment #11 and now understand you umm… joke. Thanks for the laugh.

    I wonder if Anita’s ears are ringing?

  • arlywn

    john thats mean, that chick could be real and very serious and you accuse her of being another girl! On the plus side that shows you're commited to your girls… or obsessed. Or… paranoid.

  • http://makarios@blogspot.com makarios

    Hey John,

    I asked a yoga guru friend of mine about the license plate and this was her response: "Yoga baloo ….. hullabaloo."

    Then I looked up hullabaloo on Wikipedia…..The word hullabaloo is an English noun meaning an uproar or fuss.

    The plate makes sense to me now. Ya think that's why the lil hawaiian girls on the frame?

  • Tammy Lubbers

    Why are we assuming it's a guy? That just might take us in an entire different direction.
