“I support downsizing”

While walking to work, I have noticed this one car with a license plate that says something like “dwnsizyn.”  Obviously that’s “license-plate-ese” for the word downsizing.

Today, the woman that owns the car drove off as I walked by, and it made me wonder…so there really is a person that for some reason promotes the concept of downsizing via her vanity plate.  Maybe it’s an inside joke but, to the outside viewer, it really seems like this person is a proponent of downsizing.

Now, downsizing for the sake of greater efficiency makes sense.  But then maybe the plate should say “6sigma” or something like that.

    Was the car small? Maybe she meant downsizing her car and its environmental impact. Seems like downsizing has expanded from just the corporate meaning to other aspects of life like houses and cars.

    someone suggested that on FB. the problem is that “downsizing” has a meaning unto itself, and trying to apply it, without other context, to a car or maybe dieting or whatever doesn’t really work. Someone is trying to be too witty…
