License plates Florida actually approved (Warning: contains profanity)
Orlando Sentinal ^ | ?

Posted on 12/22/2012 1:27:29 AM PST by Slings and Arrows

A committee at Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has reviewed more than 1,800 vanity plate requests in the last 10 years. The ones that get rejected often have objectionable language, sexual innuendo and more. Sometimes, harmless ones -- like G8R H8R -- don't make the cut either. Here's a select look at some of the ones that actually made the cut (see the gallery of rejected ones):

“G8R-H8R”

Hey, that's clever.

“Gator Hater” for those unfamiliar with the in-state rivalries between UF (Florida Gators), FSU, and Miami.

This vanity plate could only have been rejected by some loser from FSU (the “Seminoles” for alumni, the “Crimi-noles” for the rest of us).

Later, Gator!

I suspect they didn’t want to get involved in a religious dispute.

I once knew a guy that had “KINKY” on his motorcycle plate. Yes, he was kinky. Also years ago saw a ford country squire station-wagon with the plate “BONDAGE”.

I once saw a Jaguar with a plate that said “WANKER” (in PA).

Appropriate, I’d say.

In Illinois I saw a sports car with a plate that said PRIAPUS. The driver was speeding and giving another driver the finger.

Years ago I saw a car with Virginia plates “4SKINS”. I didn’t see any Redskins stickers. Guy was probably a mohel.

You gotta admire the artwork in the center of the plate as well.

My personal favorite was:

4NIC8. Here in Va. we can get custom pates taht have various pictures etc.. One of them in suppport of a the Pro life movement has "Kids First" in big blue letters at the bottom. One enterptrising young man had custom plate:

EAT THE

KIDS FIRST

The state later forced him to surrender it.

Not naughty plate, but one I saw in a list reading Readers Digest years ago
that was cleaver was:
10SNE1 (Tennis Anyone)

There was another that only made sense when reading the mirror image from
your rear-view mirror (was not in the Reader’s Digest list):
3M TA3

I have an old plate hanging up in my garage that I got from a ZZ Top fan
(It was a real plate): ZZONCD (ZZ on CD)

And finally, for software/computer geeks that grew up with UNIX, here is
one from the late 70s and early 80s:
XYZZX (The ‘magic word’ from the old UNIX text game ‘Adventure’, which
would move you to another location within the endless cave with many
chambers.)

No problem ... All good. I think the original use of that was on a beastie boys album cover .... Tail number on a airplane in the covers picture....

http://this-is-indie.blogspot.com/2012/05/adam-yauch-rest-in-peace-beastie-boys.html?m=1

I thought Duran Durans album cover used that tail dumber also on their cover art ...

Still funny ...

Stay safe !
