'GOES211' plate makes cut, 'JUGALET' nixed


UPI News Service, 02/04/2013 

The Oregon committee in charge of hearing complaints about personalized license plates issued by the state allowed "GOES211" but nixed "JUGALET."

The six members of the Department of Licensing's Personalized License Plate Committee, which includes a police representative and a department official, hears about 12 complaints per year about vanity plates, including a complaint in October about Tony Cava's "GOES211" plate, The Seattle Times reported Monday.

Cava, a fan of comedy film "This is Spinal Tap," said the plate is a reference to how the fictional band's amps go up to 11 instead of the standard 10.

However, a man identifying himself as Johnny Dixon had a different interpretation when he emailed the department.

"I find it in poor taste that the great state of Washington would issue a plate that allows a driver to insinuate in public that his penis grows to 11 inches in length. The rest of the citizens of Washington should not be subjected to this vulgarity," the email read.

The board sided with Cava, but it was less kind to Lisa Kleiner, 42, whose "JUGALET" plate was yanked after a complaint from a police officer.

Kleiner said the plate's message was a female version of "juggalo," a name given to fans of recording artists Insane Clown Posse.

The police officer complained the plate represented a gang affiliation.
