    From the bad idea/we-don't-get-it-and-we-never-will department.


    I wonder if it's reserved for only the white cars.

    Over/under on a Robert Byrd reference?

    Now, when I was a baby, Momma named me after the great Civil War hero, General Nathan Bedford Forrest. She said we was related to him in some way. And what he did was, he started up this club called the Ku Klux Klan. They'd all dress up in their robes and their bedsheets and act like a bunch of ghosts or spooks or something. They'd even put bedsheets on their horses and ride around. And anyway, that's how I got my name, Forrest Gump. Momma said that the Forrest part was to remind me that sometimes we all do things that, well, just don't make no sense.

    I say this as a Mississippian, but the Confederate battle flag is in our state flag. This should surprise no one.

    How is it that the states that provide us so much American flag-waving on one hand continue their traitorous embrace of the Confederacy on the other? Is the historical version of hating gays while getting sucked off by a rent boy?

    Are any Yankee states doing the same thing? Or have they moved on? I think of state license plates the same way I think about sports uniforms. Two if fine, three is okay, but if you have more options than that it is just ridiculous. Back in the day people paid $1 or $2 and put a bumper sticker on their car. Now people write a check to the state for $80 to do the same thing. Maybe if states and the federal government allowed people to "personalize" their tax forms (your favorite historical figure/reality star/animal/state park/political cause) people wouldn't bitch so much.

    I think it's quaint.

    Love the Alabama tag for a Mississippi plate... Tennessee does out-of-state colleges too...

    So does Virginia. You can get a Florida State tag for your Virginia plates. They also have an Internet one, I guess owing to the tech companies in NOVA:


    I haven't looked at the banned plates list, but people could have some fun with the .com being on the right. If it was cheaper, I would have gotten BANGBUS as my plate in college. (That website is extremely NSFW, by the way.)
