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

Please?

So if I had WALNUT on my license plate then someone would think I meant Walrus testicles?

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:

SuperNinjaToad: 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."

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?

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."

JoeyJoJo: 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.


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

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".

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

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.

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.

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.

WinoRhino: 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.


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...

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.

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."

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


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.

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
