I was wondering if anybody would notice that. Actually, she is a guinea pig.
The New Mexico vanity with the obscenity will need to be digitized out. It amazes me that it got out of the prison production line... oh.... never mind....hehe.

I hope that is not an official complaint or I'll have to suspend myself over a rule 6 violation.

I'm pretty proud of that plate. A friend of mine had very good connections in NM politics, including being friends with somebody with the department of NM prisons. Knowing my friend was another license plate collector, he had that plate made up and he snuck it out of whatever prison in NM they make license plates in.

Working with felons and commit a felony. Love it!

Hehe, I am more concerned that the editor of the publication you sent the photo to catches it. A clear as day image of this plate appeared much earlier in this thread.

Subtle it is not.

Obscenities hidden in plain view can be clever, even witty. But just stated openly they lose their cache (if they had any). I wonder how one could hide it using letters and numbers.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Many have tried to obfuscate obscene license plates by spelling things backwards or in foreign languages. As for that one, it is what it is. I couldn't not put it in the picture, because it is a novelty, for better or worse.

p.s. I was hoping I'd get some praise on the Campeche motorcycle license plate. One of the tougher Mexican states to get a license plate from.

There was a song in the 80s called "If You See Kay." At one point the video shows a license plate that reads "IF UCK."

Oh, I don't suggest you leave it out, or should have left it out.

Is that really a real state? ;)

Seriously, my interest in license plates begins and ends with knowing my current one.

I was admiring quietly. Having gotten not few tickets for license plate infractions, I found it curious indeed. I've hung mine sideways on the chain guard ("not visible"), hung it under the tail ("not visible"), I even saw a guy who had one that was just painted on with no physical plate to speak of, which is also apparently illegal.

A plate like that wouldn't fly no way today, especially since many bikes no longer feature that rounded rear fender. But 5-0 has to sit in the cruiser and have the reader proof every plate that comes by. If it can't be read, and that one couldn't, you're getting pulled over.

P.S. For someone who fancies himself observant, I never saw the guinea pig =p
