GLLOQ

GLLOQ is an Illinois plate on a silver 1991 Saab 900S.

Why did I choose this license? The word GLLOQ is part of an old French joke, to wit:

A gentleman goes to the airport to buy an airline ticket. The employee asks his name, and he responds with the name "Glloq". She asks how to spell it. (This is the tricky part, as each letter as it is pronounced in French corresponds to a word, forming the resulting sentence.) He responds 'J'ai (G) duex ailes (LL) au (O) cul (Q)', which means 'My ass (or tail) has wings'.

Of course, the employee asks him why he even bothers to take the plane...

I first came across this expression when I was in the Peace Corps in French-speaking Cote-d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) in 1977."

Gerald was kind enough to wish me good luck with my writing. With contributors like him, my job is easy.
