This is the reason why you need friends in life!

A good friend in office just upgraded and got his car. Which was the reason why I considered upgrading my car as well. 
While taking a look at his car, it reminded me of an incident shortly after I got my car.


A reminder of why you need friends in life!


My car has this “Sp” sign at the boot. Till now I have no idea what it stands for.
Anyway, as an excited first-time owner, I was thinking of adding some personalized touches to the car. 
So I thought of playing around with the “Sp” initials and adding alphabets to it to make it “unique”.


Some options crossed my mind then..
Sports? Special? GaSp? Spectacular? Spiderman? etc
Then remembering, how you can leave vowels out of words and people can still read and complete the words, I came out with another list.
Spreme = Supreme?, Sper = Super?


Then I thought I came up with a word that I would love and since my car is red…


SUPERMAN!!

So taking out the “U” since it is a “Sp” sign.. It will be S*perman which seems quite easy to understand as well..


So as I was having supper with a buddy I shared with him my brilliant idea!




Me: “I’m thinking of adding some personal touches to my car. I’m thinking of adding the word SUPERMAN to the car.”


Him: “How do you intend to do that?”


Me: “You see the Sp word behind? You know how people can still read and complete the words sometimes when you take out the vowels? I’m thinking of adding alphabets to it S*perman …”


Him: Siao (crazy)!!!... 


Me: “Why? Isn’t it a brilliant idea?”


Him: Superman?? With the “U” missing.. I think it will most probably read like

SPERM MAN!


SPERMAN


He had a point.. which explains why my car is exactly like it is when I first drove it.


And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we need to have friends in life!


You do not want to be a superhero of Sperm!!!
