The Philadelphia Shrinquirer explains how Pennsylvania tries to keep its vanity plates decorus. It’s a short article and quite amusing:
The ladies and gentlemen of the committee come to their deliberations well-armed. They have slang dictionaries, an acronym database, foreign-language dictionaries, and an array of digital reference tools to screen out not only inappropriate sexual material, but also references to drugs, gangs, ethnic slurs, and violence.
But the most potent weapon is Table 0566, known to insiders as “The No-No List” – a growing compilation – now numbering nearly 300 pages and 10,000 entries. From ABOOGER to ZUCKU, the list is a compendium of bad taste – a field guide to the less attractive recesses of the human cranial vault.
There are some easy calls in Table 0566: TUSH, TOUCHME, PISTOF, LEZDOIT, HELLYES, and almost anything beginning SEX.
I wonder whether these two, sent to me by a Faithful Reader
would pass muster in the Quaker State?
