Vanity plates are ridiculous but useful - they basically announce that the driver is a narcissistic braying ass and therefore likely to do something stupid like cut you off and cause a massive tie-up, so avoid them like the plague.
Now Kentucky, like Indiana, has a license plate that announces to the world the driver is a fucking moron who thinks an invisible sky wizard directs his every action, including, presumably, his steering and braking.
And more than 100,000 of these idiots have bought plates announcing their stupidity to the world, so we know who they are and can stay away from them.
From the Herald:
Kentuckians have bought more than 100,000 licens plates with the national motto, “In God We Trust,” since they were made available in Januray, the state Transportation Cabinet said Wednesday.
The sales represent 16.5 percent of total standard-issue license plate sales.
This is the first year that Kentucky motorists registering passenger vehicles have had a choice between two standard-issue license plates.
Both feature the “Unbridled Spirit” brand, but one plate also bears the motto, “In God We Trust.”
Both plates are available in county clerk offices for $21 each.
I'm still waiting for the tax-dollar-subsidized "Proud Atheist" license plate.
