Are you saying that we are going to click that slideshow 995 times? How about no.

Even a lab animal being rewarded with a mainline injection of heroin+cocaine per click would either become unconscious or die from overdose long before completing that task.

Utah sucks.   Plus Mormons.   Can we talk about the racism, misogyny and magic underwear?

"Champagn" got rejected as a drug reference.

"ROFLMAO" is profane.

Way to show how out of touch you are.

Some of those are less offensive by themselves than because they are coming out of a big round arch if you know what I mean.

And I know you do.

Screw a 995 image slideshow

Here's a couple galleries with no slideshows for those of you that are into funny license plates.

Every state does this and it's a huge waste of resources every time.

Oh noes the state may be perceived to endorse something slightly risque that someone could easily put on a bumper sticker in even larger font! Teh horrorz/!

RAISNL = Raisn' 'L'  = Raising Hell

At least that's what I would guess.

Well, to be fair, you only have to click 994 times since the first slide is free.

UTAH01 is a sex reference?

I'm not understanding all of these.

God doesn't listen to Slayer in Utah

"PUBLIC WELFARESLAYER, SLAYER1, SLAYER2, SLAYR, and SLAYRII were also all denied. "

Utah, it would be on the back of at least an 18 passenger van.

Damn, deslide.clusterfake needs to up their game and allow pages to be condensed. Slides are bad enough, now these sites skirt it by having each image on a separate page? fark that.

Press back instead of forward; the last few dozen are pretty funny.

Utah is cruisin for a lawsuit with some of these rejections.

You know, Utah DMV, I don't think "BLOWS" is really meant as a drug reference.  I think it's supposed to play off the "Utah" right above it.

DADGUM is profane?

Wow. Just wow.

Our state won't allow any alcohol related plates. Even grape-related ones. Even if you happen to be a vintner.

MemeSlave: Utah sucks.   Plus Mormons.   Can we talk about the racism, misogyny and magic underwear?


Don't forget the institutionalized homophobia. And the poor treatment of wage workers. And the overall hypocrisy. And the attempts to sell off protected lands for a profit. And the ultra-right loonies. And the wannabe cowboys on meth. And the stupid liquor laws. And the crappy weed. And the turning a blind eye to forced polygamy. And the willful pride they take in their own naivete. And the inversion layer. And the way-too-many-screaming-kids at restaurants, even supposedly nice ones.

Okay, there are some good things about Utah. The terrain is gorgeous, many people there are not as mentioned above, there was a fun music scene back in the late '90s (not sure what it's like now), there's really good snow if that's your thing, there's Sundance and Slamdance, there are seasons, the summers can be hot but it's a dry heat, there's practically no traffic compared to bigger cities, etc. I guess what I'm saying is it's got its positives and negatives.

I was slightly interested in checking this out after checking the comments.

Mozilla crashed on me twice just loading the page.

I scrolled down to the bottom, but when I tried scrolling back up to check out the slideshow, it crashed, both times I tried.

I'm guessing for most states it's maybe one or two employees working part time.

This. After the indecision of what clever license plate to submit I considered what's the best and worst case senario. It usually includes some dufus congratulating me on being clever to some mom at school making a big scene. Either way I'm out the extra $50 or whatever for the plate.

I'll stick to my QR code to the lemonparty website.

UTAH01 was banned as a sex reference.

I've clicked through about 50 of them. some are obvious, but a LOT of them are very WTF?!

It seems that Utah has a few character combinations that are just plain not allowed, no matter what else is around them. Which is the only explanation for the one I just posted above: The computer auto- rejects anything with "H0" before a human even looks at it. I can't think of any other place that does this kind of thing. Computers that just filter out all instances of the specific character combinations like it's supposed to wash it clean without a single thought.
