Deciphering vanity license plates is a hobby of mine, perhaps because — as a committed pedestrian and public transit rider in a car-centric world — I spend a lot of time cutting across parking lots to get where I’m going. Recently, I found myself staring at this:

*T ME UP

My thoughts, in the order in which they occurred, were as follows:

1.) Wait, what two-letter profanity have I been missing out on all these years?

2.) Is it Scrabble-legal?

It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure it out, even when factoring in a lack of caffeine. Which is why I’m proposing that we, the human race, make “QT” a real word, eligible for use both in the context of shouting at assholes (“Yeah, well, QT YOU, too!”) and racking up points in Scrabble.

What the QT?
