If you read that on a license plate, what would it say to you?

Old Pot Licker is what came to my mind first! Definitely NOT something I'd want to be identified with!

A second thought is Old Pot Liquor -- in my area of the south, pot liquor is the liquid left after boiling cabbage. Again, not something I'd want to be identified with!!!

I'm hoping I'm missing something . . . . .

Someone likes old crockery.

I had the same thought as your second one.

Well I am truly surprised. Maybe it's more of a male thing. A pot licker is a dog. Best pre-wash job I can get at my house on the dishes. My OH is known to greet male friends with, "How are you, you old pot licker?" It's a term of affection and I thought it might make a neat personalized license plate for him. Now of course I'm thinking not. I do admit, I was worried about the possible drug (pot) and alcohol connotations. Especially since I have only 8 spaces to work with and my first choices that spell it out better are taken.

Plus I had no idea about the cabbage. Live and learn.

One of the definitions I found was "mongrel dog" and I'm guessing that's what the person meant, referring to himself (herself??) in a joking sort of way. But it can also mean someone who is down and out and in really rough shape, so it's not something I'd stick on a license place. Perhaps the person has fond memories of this term... something a spouse or parent used to say.

It reminded me of "old potluck" too...

FWIW, my dog LOVES potlucks! Also plate lucks, cup lucks, floor lucks (house specialty), and any other edible luck, and even some not so edible (for humans).
