How about "IFKTHLRY'

The life of a DMV personalized license plate vetter is not an uncommon slow news day story over the years.

I remember an article saying PEACE was most requested in the early 70s, by the late 80s it was MONEY.

A common request is 4NIC8; people think they're the first clever one to request this "For my cousin Nick, who drives an 8 cylinder car!"

Even seemingly obscure words have so many variations already claimed that it's easy to find yourself testing numbers and alternate letters in license plate leetspeak.

Voluntarily giving $40 to this fucking state every year for the pleasure of having some kind of word on you car is retarded. What's wrong with a sticker if you absolutely must put "FORNICATE!" on your jalopy?

I agree with Straw Man and would never have vanity plates, and also I doubt the wisdom of calling attention to your car and yourself. But my point in posting this was that unelected and faceless bureaucrats, or even elected officials should not have the power to censor speech because it may offend someone. Coded speech has been with us since humans began to communicate. I include use of terms like 'reaccomodate' in this category. Much of what was censored here was political speech. I wonder what would have happened if they had the courage to deny something like 'SFBOYS'.

BTW, I supported Gary Johnson, but did not put bumper stickers on my cars. I used bumper magnets.
