Perhaps the silliest I've seen in Hong Kong is one I saw recently which just said VAN. I can only think of three possible reasons for choosing this:
- The owner's name is Van. However, the only person I've ever heard of with this name is Van Morrison. "Van the Man" doesn't live in Hong Kong (though I wish he'd give a concert here), and isn't the type to draw attention to himself anyway.
- Post-modern irony - so subtle that others won't grasp it.
- The owner is so forgetful he may not remember what type of vehicle he's driving.
