  1. From the DMV article: “guardians of good taste in personalized plates.”

    I laughed out loud at that.

  2. “I say this to the men out there who have never opened a graphic image on the Internet: Don’t vote for me. For those who have, I welcome your vote.”

    What an ass.

  3. I have a friend who sits on the DMV word committee. Some of the rejected plates are downright hilarious. If anything, VA residents are highly creative when it comes to distilling their “message” down to 7 characters. Many are done in conjunction with the special-interest plates the state has. My favorite rejects are ‘EATTHE’ on the ‘Kids First’ plate, and ‘HUNGLKE’ on the ‘Horse Enthusiast’ plate.

  4. Charged with sleeping on a streetcar when he was supposed to be walking his beat, Parker declared that he’d heard ducks quacking on the tram and had climbed aboard to investigate.

    Hahahaha! That’s awesome!

    But really, I have to agree that even if Parker had been there, Booth would have still been allowed access to Lincoln, and nothing would have been much different.
