N.C. says no to WTF

If you’re a North Carolina resident, and you’re offended by your own license plate because it begins with the letters “WTF,” you can get it replaced for free.

It seems that DMV officials “learned last year the common acronym stands for a vulgar phrase in e-mail and cell phone text messages.” Heh. No word on whether the initial discovery of this fact was met with an expression of incredulous disbelief — for instance, “STFU!”

Coming soon: the N.C. DMV discovers the hidden meaning of “POS” and various other three-letter combinations, and decides to stop making such a BFD out of this sort of BS.

    Well, if you get rid of WTF, you have to get rid of FTW. Where does the madness end?!

    Brendan – what is the problem with POS – it just means Point-Of_Sale ?

    Interesting…Iowa should be up to WTF in the alphabet somewhere around late 2010-early 2011. (Late T’s right now.)

    Haha, I blogged about that too, last night. I know I saw “WTF” when I was a kindergartener in North Carolina 18 years ago. How could they be surprised by this?

    I made an NC vanity plate with their website for kicks.
