As per the (unusual) request from the Director, the Research Division has completed its analysis into the license plate, “TAMMY 5,” that the Director saw during his commute. As license plate numbers require a fee to the DMV for specific information lookup, and the Director declined to provide this fee (despite paying the Division’s salaries), this report is, necessarily, speculative.

Possibility 1
This is the fifth car owned by a person named Tammy, sequentially. The previous for cars would be Tammies 1-4 in this scenario.

Possibility 2
This is the fifth car owned by a person named Tammy, concurrently. The owner possessed four other cars or motor vehicles licensed as Tammies 1-4. Since the car in question was, quote, “a sucky Chrysler,” this is considered less likely than Possibility 1.

Possibility 3
This is the fifth car registered to a Tammy in this state, with Tammies 1-4 belonging to unrelated Tammies. This is also considered unlikely, as one would expect for Tammy’s middle or last initial to be substituted.

Possibility 4
This car belongs to someone named Tammy whose middle or last initial is S, and “Tammy S” was already taken, leading to the alphanumeric substitution of “5.” One member of the Research Division raised the point that it is, theoretically possible, if staggeringly unlikely, that the person’s actual middle or last name begins with the numeral 5, so that (remote) possibility is duly recorded here.

Possibility 5
One member of the Research Division raised the point that is is, theoretically possible, if staggeringly unlikely, that the owner is, quote “a gynoid of some kind, possibly a sexbot” and that Tammy 5 is, as such, her model designation, with Tammies 1-4 being earlier or collateral models in the same line of gynoids (or “sexbots”).
This is theoretically possible, if staggeringly unlikely, so that (remote) possibility is duly recorded here.
