Cool. Simple, but fun.

Very nice! I thought it was fairly straight forward but I liked it.

Posted by flynn09/26/02
Of course! I had: I cross 'em 'n I Z It all made sense until the last letter. I like it!

It was confusing. I think it was stupid. MN doesn't sound like min. Whatever.

Good one! I couldn't get past ex-man (hence drag Queen cross dresser etc)

But the real question is, how many people screwed up their eyes staring at that license plate trying to figure it out? Nice teaser.

I knew it had to be something simple like that, but I couldn't quite get it. Pretty good teaser. :o

Posted by 4princesses10/19/07

It goes like this: I X M N IZ eye ex em en eyes ( I examine eyes) All the letters are pronounced phonetically except the last 2.

BTW Webster's dictionary defines optometry as the health-care profession concerned especially with examining the eye for defects and faults of refraction, while opthalmology is a branch of medical science dealing with the structure, functions, and diseases of the eye, so optometrist is more accurate than opthalmologist.

Don't think so much. It is a cute puzzle. Hard but, cute. :D

Could be an orthopedic doctor. I examine knees

Posted by cheesepie10/19/07

In town realtor has CME2SEL, and since I was in the busy of licensing cars I got really good at reading prestiege plates. Good one and cute. :)

Posted by CSIFreke1019011/09/07
I just heard this one on Country 102.5

Posted by patiencewithaP10/19/10
Easy and fun! Good one! :D

Posted by huntchasedown10/19/10
honestly how are we supposed to know what his occupation was. The license plate doesn't always, or rarely ever tell somebodies occupation. But still cool... i guess

Posted by Babe10/19/13
I love figuring out lisence plates. Took a while to get this one, but fun!! :D

Posted by thedavincigame10/19/13
I thought it was web designer, as that's what I do! Read the question carefully: "While riding in the car I saw a license plate that read like this: IXMNIZ What occupation did the man in the car have?" The license plate might have been on the ground or on a motorcycle or anything! The person in the car is ME! (Provided you're a man of course). So the answer is whatever job you do! Or at least, I thought it was a trick question.
