If you're looking to deceive local law enforcement by way of a phony license plate, your forged vehicle ID probably shouldn't come from the remnants of last night's pizza delivery. But because the universe unfolds in equal parts mystifying and utterly depressing, a motorist in Massachusetts decided to fashion a license plate out of cardboard from a pizza box, filling in the numbers with a vibrantly-hued magic marker.
As you'd imagine, the Hopkinton Police Department wasn't fooled by the thinly veiled ruse, and made an example of the driver by posting the ill-conceived project to Facebook. Lambasting the cardboard license plate like an angry dad would a Golden Retriever, the cops wrote:
“Here’s a little advice to those aspiring to make their own license plates… don’t. But if you do, make sure not to use cardboard from a pizza box and magic markers.”
