The possibilities get richer if you consider mere expressions and puns on them.

$$==0 for 'swapper' (a little old-fashoned, that)

$?!=0 for 'baby on board'

Regex matches can make an assertion...

/VIP/

...or even tell a sad story.

/DWI/

$&=1/4

/APB/

$!!=0

/DOA/

    Having the word "DWI" on your license plate is a bit like walking around a hunting grounds with a pair of antlers strapped to your head :-)

      Can you explain for non-americans what it is with DWI. I think it closes a large namespace.

        Certainly. I'll do the same for the others, too. They are acronyms:

        DWI -- Driving While Intoxicated

        APB -- All Points Bulletin

        DOA -- Dead On Arrival

        VIP -- Very Important Person
