So 6 persons on the panel x 50 states x salary = cost of censorship
cost of censorship > custom plate revenue ?

/always bothered by this
//don't have an answer

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: Cold_Sassy: Another item FTA about the FUBAR plate:

Says Brechbiel, "What about if a little kid asks their parent what it means?"

You tell your farking kids you don't know, and in 5 minutes they'll forget they ever saw it.  What a dumb*ss world we're living in.

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.



BAN EVERYTHING


/oh by the way, the centering thingy should only center what's highlighted, not the entire post

I'm still waiting for someone to complain about my R4PTOR plates.  I've had so many people ask questions about it and everytime I say "Take a few steps back, look at it with one eye, and tell me what it says."  "OHHHHHH it says Raptor!"  "YES."

I'm of the opinion that people who can't answer such simple questions have no business having children.

SevenizGud: FTFA:
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."

Note to DOL -
issue mand. psych. eval. for Dixon ASAP.


Now I could see where he would get the penis reference if it said GROWS211 -- I am wondering if maybe Mr. Dixon was upset because he was having penis envy.

WOW!!! sometimes I really don't like America. I think what he said tells me a LOT more about this Dixon guy than the guy who is having the plate


Would you believe that until reading your response, I hadn't caught that the person who filed the complaint was named Dixon?

He's probably heard so many "Huh huh dix" jokes in his lifetime that all he thinks about is euphamisms for, well, dix.

The one strange thing I noticed about vanity plates while living in New Hampshire (about 10 years ago) was that a lot of people got plates that said the model of the car.

For instance, I've seen FORD, JEEP, TOYOTA, HONDA, CAMRY, CIVIC, etc.  All sorts of stupid shiat like that.  Who would pay for a vanity plate which only announced the model of the vehicle it was on?

I lived there for 6 years and that shiat would just drive me crazy.

There are many, many non-vanity plates in my area that are FAP followed by 4 numbers. I wonder if they would pull them all if I applied for a vanity plate "I FAP".

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.


LOL, excellent.

In Phoenix, I saw this guy driving a Lexus LS400.  In big, gold, metallic letters it said "LS400" on the back panel next to his license plate bracket.  Know what his license plate was?  Uh huh.

Millennium: Please tell me I'm not the only one who sees "ELKNUT" and gets images of a baby polar bear in a sombrero.

Please?


Oh good.  Someone else who misread that particular plate.

I also thought the complaint about the "GOES211" sounded like Peter Griffin hearing somebody has MS.

When I went to New England last year, I saw a car with NH plates that read NASCAH.

how about "05 STANG", "09 AUDI", etc., guy?

yeah.  Aside from telling us what kind of car you drive WHEN YOU ARE IN THAT CAR, the model year is only cool when you are bumping the 2013 model year in 2012.

it looks dumb as fark when you are bumping areound town in your "05 STANG" plate.....in 2013 when there is a different body type.

I want to know how we ended up in a world where ONE complaint, no matter how stupid, gets an immediate bannination of something.

Agreed, unless the car in question is old or rare, in which case it saves you answering the "what kind of/year car is that" question 5000 times.

A few years ago I saw this on a car in VA:

T1H5 H0

Took me about 30 seconds to figure it out, then I had a laugh and wondered how someone who has the job of screening these things missed it.
 
2013-02-04 04:38:02 PM
I read that as ELKUNT.

Gotta get stronger glasses,

My old plate:
i1134.photobucket.com

Had it for 3 years, then *1* person complained. So I got a notice from the state saying I had to give it up. I tried to appeal and explain it simply meant "to cover" in Japanese, and there was such food items such as bukkake udon and bukkake ramen that was noodles with a lot of stuff on it.
They lady from the other side had to read the slang definition from urbandictionary.com, and was clearly uncomfortable doing so. (that part was rather funny). I tried to explain that the website was open to anyone to make an entry, and nearly every word could possibly be slang for something bad, and that was no reason to take my plate, but VA did not agree.

So this is my new plate:
i1134.photobucket.com

I had a creepy coworker who was overly proud of her cherry red Mustang. Her plate? STAAANG.

I'll never forget the blonde in the convertible who breezed through my hometown advertising ICRZNKD.

Spotten a Scion on a roadtrip to Oregon that sported ROFLBOX.

Had a nerdy laugh a few months ago when I spotted MOOGLE on a car outside my place of work.

That said, I always thought getting SLYTHRN for my silver car would be delightfully geeky and silly. :)

"What's a reacharound?"

It's when you reach around.

*confused looks*


Sounds fine and dandy until your 1st grader gets suspended for asking little Susie for a reacharound instead of asking her if he can use her eraser.
