Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 19, 2017

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles got all of America as their Secret Santa gift-ee, and they've given us a wonderful gift: a list of all 330 rejected personalized license plates. Some suggest dirty words, or body parts you're not supposed to show people in public! Some reveal a deep misanthropy among Ohioans! One says "BOOBIES!" There's something for everyone.

Just so you're up on Ohio's criteria here, this is what will get your plate rejected:

Contain words, combinations, and/or phrases (in any language and when read either frontward or backward) that are so profane (that is, swearwords or expletives) obscene, sexually explicit or scatological.

Contains words, combinations, and/or phrases that are so offensive that they could reasonably be expected to provoke a violent response from viewers without additional comment.

Contains words, combinations, and/or phrases that advocate immediate lawlessness or advocate lawless activities.

That part where it says "that are so profane" is interesting. Why the "so?" I guess for emphasis?

Ohio and other states actually pay people to censor license plates because snowflakes in our country might see a license plate with something slightly offensive.
Meanwhile, Florida is coming out with a license plate dedicated to Ronald Reagan which in my mind is honoring a treasonous criminal who made deals with the Ayatollah which was expressly contrary to the law of the land at the time. I'll take slightly offensive over treasonous any day. What's next a combination Trump/Putin plate?

Reagan has a lot in common with Obama then.
