Tofu on the licence plate

Ms Kelly Coffman-Lee of Colorado, USA, tried to order a vanity plate for her SUV with ILVTOFU on it. She and her family are vegan and tofu is a staple of their diet. Unfortunately the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles has put the brakes on her plans since as a department spokesman says, "some people could read that (the FU bit) as street language for sex." (and yes, I am wondering where that particular street is.) To me, this is unconscionable. Just because Ms Coffman-Lee is a chick (or a woman), she is not allowed to put what she wants on a vanity licence-plate.

Let's look at this from another angle for a moment. Say this was a guy looking to arrange a vanity licence-plate? His name is, say, Hardman Steele, and his wife is named Becky-Jill. Now Hardman loves his wife a lot and wants to let everybody know so he orders a plate that says ILUVBJS (try to make some sort of sexual thing out of that, even "as street language"!) Would Hardman be allowed to order a plate like that? Of course he would, BECAUSE HE'S A MAN!! Jeez-Louise, it's the twenty-first century people. Broads should have all the rights that men do. Get with the program, folks. Thanks for listening.

Anyway... Humouroceros
