Well, that's awkward.
Where was Lincoln's bodyguard on April 14, 1865? Next door to Ford's Theatre, drinking a beer.
I've often wondered how the DMV screens out license plates that contain words that could be offensive. Turns out, they do it like this.
From the DMV article: “guardians of good taste in personalized plates.”
I laughed out loud at that.
What an ass.
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.
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.
I’m with you, Michael—that duck quacking thing was the best bit of the article.
I always laughed at this license plate. I couldn’t help myself.
Who could help themselves? :)
