BREAKING NEWS! Poofter Wins Great Virginia License Plate War



Pony Pal™ David writes that the struggle to keep his humorous plates is over. And he won! Yay!

VA DMV called this morning to back down. I had sent their generic plates back last week directly to the head of the DMV with a very strong letter regarding First Amendment rights. The new manager for Special Plates called to acknowledge receipt of the substitute plates and to orally declare the issue closed.

As I told my office mate, don't fuck with a queen over 40 -- you will not win.


And thus, the great saga of the Great Virginia Poofter Plate Battle comes to a fitting end... with the poofter on top, natch.

What's with Virginia hairdressers and their license plates? That's the same state of the "2 DYKES".

Technically I don't think state-issued license plates are protected under the first amendment, but I'm glad POOFTER got to keep his.

Could Sparkle in fact be The Donald?

"I see Condoleezza Rice - she goes on a plane, she gets off a plane, she waves, she goes there to meet some dictator. ... They talk, she leaves, she waves, the plane takes off. Nothing happens, it's a joke, nothing ever happens. I think she's a very nice woman, but I don't want a nice woman."

Clearly there are too many people who have too much time on their hands in this country.

Leave the Poofter alone is what I say!

And the 2Dykes, although it is too late for that one.

Aryan1- it must go!

I dont know about this, Princess... it's a slippery slope. This is an affront to the sanctity of licence plates. It devalues the institution of the DMV. Pretty soon people will want to customize their dogs. And what will the children think?

Mike Licht said...

a "new manager for Special Plates" in VA? Is his PhD in Applied Lexicology or Lexical Semantics?

How exciting. I just learned a new word: poofter,I shall practice its spelling, pronunciation... use it in a sentence.

The poofter ate some pumpkin bread.

Lulu- "poofter" is new to you?
I've been using that ever since I discovered that England was a country full of them.

Ah, Princess, hope Thanksgiving was good to and for you:) God bless Poofter!
Wouldn't mind a Black Friday hand turkey to ease the digestion, though...

Wasn't this the same poofter who had bad sex with Larry Craig decades ago? Or am I getting my poofters confused?
