Here’s a little puzzler for you. Who do you think this car belongs to?

The person in question lives in Berkeley and is in the public eye.

Plus, he, or she — or “they” for that matter, it’s a big car after all — have a license plate that demands attention. That’s where the clue is, people.

And while we’re at it, what is it about Dr Who and Berkeley? This is the second Tardis-related story we’ve run this year.

  1. You asked me to “take note” of something but I couldn’t extract a meaningful referent from your comment or the PDF.

  2. Isn’t this the creepy-stalker thread, or the carload-of-white-people-who-don’t-send-their-kids-to-Berkeley-schools thread (which, since I’m not a creepy stalker, I don’t know for sure… but take note Bruce L. — there’s your MIA 40%). Lance did you scan the linked PDF for relevance? If I’m being too oblique, I can spell it.

  3. I saw a license plate on a car at WonderCon that was “IHAZCAR” which was a clear reference to the “I CAN HAZ CHEEZBURGER” LOL-cat meme.

  4. despite the forgoing comments, I must ask (already knowing who drives this TARDIS), “Is it bigger on the inside?”

  5. Todd: We wouldn’t have run this post if the person in question wasn’t already in the public eye and sported a license plate that cries out for attention.

    However, on reflection, I think you’re right that it’s a little creepy (if that’s what you meant — and not that you thought having a “Tardis” license place was creepy). We won’t be doing it again.

  6. Well, perhaps–but I’ve never had the impression that the Chabon-Waldman menage disliked attention.

  7. I don’t actually know this family but I do follow Ayelet’s twitter (and yes, I sometimes feel a little stalkerish).
