'GOES211' plate makes cut, 'JUGALET' nixed

SALEM, Ore., - The Oregon committee in charge of hearing complaints about personalized license plates issued by the state allowed "GOES211" but nixed "JUGALET."

The six members of the Department of Licensing's Personalized License Plate Committee, which includes a police representative and a department official, hears about 12 complaints per year about vanity plates, including a complaint in October about Tony Cava's "GOES211" plate, The Seattle Times reported Monday.

Cava, a fan of comedy film "This is Spinal Tap," said the plate is a reference to how the fictional band's amps go up to 11 instead of the standard 10.

However, a man identifying himself as Johnny Dixon had a different interpretation when he emailed the department.

"I find it in poor taste that the great state of Washington would issue a plate that allows a driver to insinuate in public that his penis grows to 11 inches in length. The rest of the citizens of Washington should not be subjected to this vulgarity," the email read.

The board sided with Cava, but it was less kind to Lisa Kleiner, 42, whose "JUGALET" plate was yanked after a complaint from a police officer.

Kleiner said the plate's message was a female version of "juggalo," a name given to fans of recording artists Insane Clown Posse.

The police officer complained the plate represented a gang affiliation.

If that's how he/she interprets GoesTo11 what a sick depraved mind she/he must have.

The rest of the citizens of Washington should not be subjected to this vulgarity," the email read.

I hate clever vanity plates just like I hate inside jokes I’m outside of.

Sounds like the email came from the person who wants to end Deer Crossings in high traffic areas.

I’m surprised my plate made the cut seeing that it is an obvious reference to hate radio (/sarc): on my Vette: DITTOS

Maybe he thought it meant 11 millimeters, and he was jealous.

Deer Crossings in high traffic areas

Brilliant idea.

I was glad when they got rid of the the "Deer Crossing" sign, and just changed it to a symbol. Before, the signs were just stupid, because everyone knows that deer can't read.

I’d be ashamed to advertise that I was that stupid.

I still think that had to be some kind of setup/prank call. Nobody can really be that stupid. I hope.

My friend Richard has a surname that begins with “U”

“Dick U” was rejected by the DMV despite his obvious claim that it truly was his name.

Why did that guy first think of penis’? Was he jealous?
Weird, that people are so offended but stuff most people have no idea what it even means.

I wanted this one, but did not want to pay the $60/year or whatever it was for it.

And just how is this not a violation of first amendment rights? Our courts are full of libs now and rule against law suits brought against government agencies who overstep their authority.

My step son's last name was wang. His friends all called him "Wanger" meaning nothing except it was a nick name. He had a he** of a time getting a vanity plate for it in CA. They finally allowed it but the woman behind the counter who first questioned it was highly irate. Me calling her a stupid bitch didn't help I guess.
