Body Type - Bubble Unicorn

I went to pay my insurance for the first month online and I came across this...



I thought BU was going to stand for Bus. Do they really think I am trying to insure a unicorn? Is this an underwriters joke? I love it, I'm just confused as to how it got that way. Did my bus pick its own name? Has anyone else come across this elusive creature?

Also, will it change when I go to register it as a conversion to MH?

Some suggestions for your Skoolie avatar!









Did you know the unicorn is the official national animal of Scotland?

"License plate four two three, Alpha Charlie Bubble Unicorn..."

I love it! I'm actually quite jealous in a weird, stonery kind of way!

I seem to have a knack for helping folks find the perfect avatar!

we painted the inside of the walls today.. turns out we picked out a perfect unicorn color. it's the lightest shade of silver. it was untinted metallic paint, so it was basically liquid sparkles...

That is SO appropriate..... you need to do the outside the same color.

As with all things Skoolie that varies state to state and DMV office to DMV office.

My experience shows that will definitely change. My guess would be probably to a Rotational Vampire (RV) or a Mystical Hobo (MH).

ahahaha! thank you.

i'll be changing it at the dmv as soon as my personalized plates application comes back. i think it will be better in the long run if it is switched, even if i lose the bubble unicorn title. she can keep it as her name.

Where there's a will, there's a way!

May I suggest a snowglobe with unicorn for the dash?

The unicorn hood ornament has gone up! And just in time to be a good measurer of snow fall. Up to the tip in snow hahaha

I'll be filing for MH registration next month before skooliepalooza and see if that changes her to a mystical hobo.
