License Plate of the Day

160 years ago today, Edgar Allen Poe died at the age of 40.   I always think of him as having a longer life, probably because he looks way older than 40 in the pictures I’ve seen of him:

1848 daguerreotype of Poe.  He looks like the kind of guy who would write about walling a guy up and leaving him to die, no?

I guess that level of doom and gloom can wear a man down.  Anyhoo, in honor of Poe’s death (and because he was a creepy guy who wrote creepy shit I feel like honoring his death rather than his birth is appropriate), a themed license plate:

quoth the raven

quoth the raven

I’m assuming based on the license plate and the fact that the car is black , it’s a reference to one of Poe’s most famous works, The Raven.  If you’re not familiar with the poem, then I have to ask what rock you’ve been living under.  And also, haven’t you at least watched The Simpsons?
