Last October, Dixon emailed the Department of Licensing: "I find it in poor taste that the great state of Washington would issue a plate that allows a driver to insinuate in public that his penis grows to 11 inches in length. The rest of the citizens of Washington should not be subjected to this vulgarity."

Is this guy trolling or a moron?

Asked for comment about his complaint, Dixon emailed back, "What exactly is it that you want to know? I find it disturbing that you can access my emails to the DOL."

Ah, he's a moron.

Randy Randall, 60, a retired quality engineer, is still steaming about how, in 2011, the DOL yanked his plate, "FUBAR."

He'd had it for 36 years on various vehicles he owned.

Then a complaint came from Tracy Brechbiel, a Camano Island engineer.

He wrote the agency: "I learned of 'FUBAR' in the military ... Some may think of 'Fouled Up Beyond All Repair,' but I learned it as ...(Bleep!) Up Beyond All Repair/Recognition.' I find this to be an unacceptable acronym ..."


What kind of miserable farking creep do you have to be to take the time to stop everything and file a complaint over someone else's licence plate?

Yes, goes211 makes him think of penis. The vigin mary probably makes him think of penis too

Maybe if he complained it was flaunting speed limits he MIGHT have an argument, but it is a 1989 bmw so I don't think there are any worries of achieving 211mph

Wow, I could not figure out how goes211 meant anything. Spinal Tap reference? Weather satellite fan?

The state that had a whole series of 3 numbers and WTF plates issued. I wonder if they'll be wanting those back.

I figured Spinal Tap - pathetic someone complained about that.  Should do an experiment and pick a random plate off the street and file a complaint about it because it makes you think of the peener - just to see what they do.

A man identifying himself as Johnny Dixon wasn't thinking "Spinal Tap" when he spotted the plate.
Last October, Dixon emailed the Department of Licensing: "I find it in poor taste that the great state of Washington would issue a plate that allows a driver to insinuate in public that his penis grows to 11 inches in length. The rest of the citizens of Washington should not be subjected to this vulgarity."

Instead of an offended idiots veto the state should figure out if a reasonable person would be offended.  Given that reasonable and government aren't likely to be found together I say we troll the system.  Lets complain about every plate vanity or standard issue.

"To whom it may concern last Tuesday I was shocked to see a red Ford F-150 with the plate DBE 112.  As I'm sure you are well aware the letter "E" is often used as a derogatory, racist code word."

Earguy: Wow, I could not figure out how goes211 meant anything. Spinal Tap reference? Weather satellite fan?


My first thought was the weather satellite as well. But a quick google search also shows there was a band with that name.

Automatically assuming it was a penis reference seems to be pushing it - unless the complainer knew that is what the band intended.

I worked with a guy who had a plate "IFISTU"... I played naive and asked him to explain it to me, he refused. From that point on I imagined him as in a submissive, gay relationship.  Honestly, nothing wrong with that.  This was also over 25 years ago... I don't think a lot of busybody old people had any clue what it might mean.

She's also a big fan of Insane Clown Posse, the Detroit hip-hop duo whose fervent fans are known as Juggalos.

Kleiner says she has appreciated how the duo, whose lyrics are often violent but combined with spirituality, reaches out to those who've had troubled lives.


Wuht?

When I was a kid, there was a doctor in town with the license plate "666."  This was a fairly small town in a post industrial area (everyone knew everyone kind of thing.)  I've posted about this before when a similar thread came up.

Anyway, this 666 car was always parked downtown in a place where you could see it.

Dunno if the dude is alive anymore or has the plate anymore, moved from there when I was 3 years old.  We used to go back there on vacation to see family who still lived there, and I remember still seeing that car up until I was maybe 12 or 13 years old.

As far as the "JUGALET" vanity plate is concerned, I'm shocked a fan of ICP had enough cash to scrape together to get a car, let alone the fee for special plates.

Of course it's a Spinal Tap reference.  If someone was offended by that term, they simply read into it entirely the worng way.

This reminds me of the story from 5 or so years ago when a woman in her 70s was forced to change her license plate. She and her husband owned NorthWood Tree Farm and had the plate "NWTF" for over a decade. When the woman tried to renew they said she couldn't because her plate could be confused with "Now What the fark".  The funniest part to me was her last name was "Nipple." I just imagined them asking her to change that, too.

CSB 1:   i knew a gy in the Navy that had "2 ON 1".  when we got our top secrets renewed, he claimed NIS asked him what it meant.  he said it was some card game or cribbage game or some shiat.  but, as he's telling me this story -- also he had that weird carny, panty sniffer, constantlyh licking his lips skeevy thing -- he says, "but what it really means, is my wife really, really likes double penetration."


CSB 2:  ran into a friend yesterday, in his new sled with a "1BAL1DR" plate.  hint:  he has something in common with Lance Armstrong.  Geddit?

In High School, in the 80's (oops, just dated myself), I worked at a 5-star resort.  I often saw a new, red Camaro in the parking lot with the license plate CME4NK (see me for nooky).  Probably "worked" at the hotel?  Just sayin'.

TFA: Kleiner says she has appreciated how the duo, whose lyrics are often violent but combined with spirituality, reaches out to those who've had troubled lives.

Officer Mike Lusk of the Puyallup Police Department thought otherwise.

On February 2010, he emailed the DOL about not only JUGALET, but another plate, JUGGALO:

"Regardless of the plate holder's activation in the gang the plate still refers to a known recognized gang in WA. It would be no different if DOL issued a plate titled Blood or Crips."


Good grief. A lot can be said about Juggalos, and most of it isn't good, but they're not a gang, or even anything reasonably resembling one.

Though perhaps we need more "gangs" spraying their rivals with Faygo instead of bullets.

Does Washington State have bottle deposits? There's gotta be some money in collecting all of the Faygo cans/bottles and turning them in after a get-together...

Way back when I had cool stories, I remember there was this convertible Dodge Lebaron that would drive around where I worked.  The plate on it was "STROKER".  I always chuckled in my head about it.  Once day I was eating at BK or McD with my 3 coworkers, all of us 20 something guys.  So we sit down and see the STROKER car.  We immediately begin to make crude jokes about it and talk about the kind of person who would be so awesome, the would put STROKER on their car.

Well, as it turns out, it was the both just a few down from us. I have no doubt the freaky looking dudes heard us.  They waited long after their meal was done to slink out in same.  It was pretty smart waiting out the people the that are making fun you.  It just doesn't turn out well when it is 4 university students looking to dodge work for a while.

So in sort.  Don't complain when mocking works just as well.

Or that it's a military term that means something went wrong.  They have no reason to believe it's an acronym.

Honestly, I'm going to have a lot harder time explaining why those two gray haired people are sitting in bathtubs on the lawn between innings.

The FBI actually released a warning about a "clown gang", referring to juggalos, and it was distributed through the regular int channels. I laughed myself crosseyed at it, then I felt sad because it was issued with a straight face by someone whose help I could conceivably need in the future.

If we go with this guy's standards, we should probably ban bikinis and underwear ads while we're at it. What if a little kid asks why someone can bare all of their skin except for those parts? We also need to put all condoms, tampons, douches and cold sore treatments behind and below the pharmacy counter. You never know when a child might see one of those in a store aisle and ask what they're for.
 
2013-02-04 12:45:28 PM  
Says Tracy Brechbiel, the guy who complained about FUBAR, "Give me any three letters, make one of them an 'F' and I can come up with something that would be obscene."

Great, you have an overactive imagination that seems to be stuck in a gutter.  Now stop complaining about what other people have on their license plates.
