Reader who threw a ‘hissy fit’ wins Observer contest

After reviewing nearly 130 submissions to the Observer’s ILUVMYTAG license plate contest, the judges named Dianna Hildenbrand of Charlotte the winner. Here’s her explanation of HISSYFIT: “I have a Honda Fit and what better plate than HissyFit, especially living in the South. Also, my mother always told me not to have a HissyFit fit.”

She wins a $25 gift card. Our thanks to everyone who entered. Click through the others for some funny, even sweet, stories. And who knew a car tag could be poignant? We saw several.
