Do I offend you?

When I registered the Mazda last week, I applied for personalized license plates bearing my last name. This morning, I received a notice from the DMV stating that my last name contains a “sex reference,” and that it couldn’t be approved for use on a personalized plate.
I just mailed off a Petition for Redetermination, along with a rather lengthy response as to why I should be allowed to have my last name on my license plate. They have no problems accepting a check bearing my “offensive” name when I pay for my vehicle registration, so why should a license plate on my car bearing the same name be any different? I also emailed Rolly & Wells at the Salt Lake Tribune, hoping they’ll print something about it in their column (though I’m not counting on that). Now I have to wait for the state tax commission to notify me of the next scheduled event in the appeals process, so I’ll just sit back and see what happens. I think I’m prepared to hire an attorney to represent me, as long as it doesn’t put me in too much debt, but either way, I’m going to take this as far as it can possibly go–no giving up.
By the way, this spawned a new poll question, so please vote.

  1. As your attorney i advise you to rent a very fast car with no top, and we’ll need the cocaine, accopocco shirts and a tape recorder for special music. Get the hell out of town for at least a 3 days. As your attorney i’m naturally going to have to go with you, this ruins my weekend.
