“I want to tell people who I am and what I am. I’m proud of it. I’m openly gay. I’m not hiding,” said Keith Kimmel, 28, of Norman. “What better way to tell everybody than to put it on the back of a car?”
This kid wanted his license plates to read IM GAY. While I probably wouldn’t want that on my car, just to save it from being vandalized in some degree by crazies, this kid does, but Oklahoma’s not having it, because it might be offensive to some.
For years when I lived in Missouri, I had personalized license plates that read 2DOLLA. I knew what it meant, but one day when I was driving to St. Louis, someone passed me on the freeway waving two one dollar bills and making signs with his hands and mouth that are way too dirty for me to share.
I’ve seen personalized plates here that I can’t even figure out. And trust me, guys, I’m good at that. Remember that show Bumper Stumpers? I was un-frickin’-stoppable. For all I know, they’re making reference about the dirty things they want to do with roadkill. But you know what? I don’t care. It’s just like I don’t care about morons that have stickers with Calvin pissing on every symbol under the sun plastered to the back windshield of their pickup truck.
If the government would stop trying to control absolutely everything in the world during every minute of our life, I can almost guarantee you that we’d all be in a much happier place. I guess it’s a good thing that I’m rational. Otherwise, just to piss off the government, I’d be going out and marrying a duck and getting personalized plates that say DUCKFUCKER. Oh wait. Is that too many characters?
