Best License Plate EVER


I see this license plate every so often on my block, and every time I see it, I'm tickled pink. Loosely translated, "toubab" is Wolof for "honkey".

Hello. I googled the word Toubab because I was looking for information on my friend. I thought maybe I'd find some information...and sure enough, here is a picture of his car on your website. Anyway, I'm a bit worried because I haven't heard from him in about 2 month and I checked his work only to find he hasn't been there in about 2 months either.

I was wondering...have you seen this car lately? Thanks.

I haven't seen this car lately- the last time I saw it was a few months ago. When I would see it, it was parked generally in the U street area- this picture was taken on Clifton street on the block in between 13th and 14th- right near Cardozo high. I'll definitely take some walks over there this week; if I see anything; I'll post a new comment here.

I hope everything's ok with your friend. Let me know how to help- you can just leave another comment here. Do you want me to update this picture and put it up on the front page to see if anyone has seen the car? I can also forward this to a bunch of people who live in the neighborhood; just let me know.

Thanks for the update. He used to work over at Busboys so you probably saw the car during working hours. I went up to Busboys and they said he just stopped coming to work. Weird, huh? Yeah, if you can see if anyone has seen it...that'll be great. There has been no change to his myspace...so I don't know what's going on.
