Freedom Is Officially Banned In Washington

Here's a bit of fun for Wednesday lunchtime.
According to the official list of banned D.C. plate combinations ... the capital city's DMV has a 53-page list of 26,993 license plate no-no's that prohibit everything from praising the local baseball team to expressing disgust with the Internal Revenue Service. The list was made available through a Freedom of Information Request filed by the transparency website GovernmentAttic.org
Tough luck America, even "FREEDOM" won't fly in the nation's capital.
Yes, the word 'freedom' is too dangerous for Washington's public sector to contemplate, so they've banned it.

Have a play with this widget and see what you'd be allowed to get away with.

P155OFF, FR33D0M and 5M0KER all worked for me. Governments are useless at lateral thinking.

Rob F said...

"BOLLOCK" seems to work fine...

Wanker is banned, wankers is fine, go figure...

Also, cockend is fine, arse is banned, but arses is fine.

Clueless bastards.

Oh aye, you can't have bastard, you can have bastid.

Interesting finds already. :)


SMOKER isn't banned, but I would have expected someone to own it already.

'Wanker' is Bundy's maiden name in Married With Children. So I tried 'Bundy' and that's banned too.


Perhaps the DMV don't like the show. ;)

I admire your innovation. :)

Steve Wintersgill said...

Nice.

Cuntjob, shitbag and arsehat are all fine, as, surprisingly, is cunts.

There is one I have seen on a car in London which is also banned. 'Hot 69'.

I worked in the USA in 1983. The word wanker didn't exist.

More likely to relate to serial killer Ted Bundy - a psychopath that gets caught is rather letting the side down for the rest.

Dick_Puddlecote said...

A bugger if your name actually is Bundy though, eh? ;)

RooBeeDoo said...

Al and Peggy will be distraught :D

Damn it, I'm going to have to dig out and re-watch 'The Ferguson' episode tonight now.

Lemmi said...

Wank and Twat are ok too.

Human physiology is the science of the mechanical, physical, bioelectrical, and biochemical functions of humans in good health, their organs, and the cells of which they are composed. Physiology focuses principally at the level of organs and systems.
Most aspects of human physiology are closely homologous to corresponding aspects of animal physiology, and animal experimentation has provided much of the foundation of physiological knowledge
