THACO

On my way back to work from lunch I saw something … unique.  I saw a new Toyota Camry with the license plate of THACO.  Without any reference my first thought is Nerrrrrrrrrd!  But then I was struck by the thought … Which is nerdier?  The nerd who puts THACO on a license plate or the nerd who sees T. H. A. C. 0. 
I’m not sure I want to know the answer.
