State of Virginia Revokes Awesome License Plate

Redditor WHOWANTSBEEF acquired a custom license plate that made good use of the subscript "Kids First". Alas, the state has revoked the plate and sent a detailed response explaining why. You can read the full text of their letter at the link.

This reminds me of Monty Python, the part where there are these letters of complaints and then letter of complaints about the letters of complaints.

The dude made a mistake here, his argument shouldn't have been that the plate was funny/a joke. He should have argued that the plate was a literary reference to Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" wherein Swift satirically suggested that the poor Irish families should sell their youngest children to the rich for food.

There's a good chance no one on the DMV board would know what he was talking about and therefore he could make them all look like ignoramouses. There's a chance they'd feel dumb interpreting a literary reference so barbarically and let him keep it. But knowing government officials, they'd probably still take it away despite their exposed ignorance. But then at least the story makes the DMV looks like ignorant fools.
