Tim MacFall of Stewart Manor, in the throes of a harsh winter, thought of the Jimmy Buffett song "Boat Drinks." "It's about how he's sick of winter and that's pretty much how I felt when I got the plate" that now adorns his red convertible.(Credit: Ann Silverberg)

Weird, clever Long Island license plates

Long Islanders are fond of taking creative license -- with the plates on their cars. Here is a gallery of such artistry! Compiled by Iris Quigley

To submit a creative license, send a photo of the plate with your name, phone number and hometown to iris.quigley@newsday.com.
Or mail them to Iris Quigley, Library, Newsday, 235 Pinelawn Rd., Melville, N.Y. 11747-4250.
