DMV won’t let vegan have ‘vulgar’ tofu license plate

via Gawker


Whitney Calk works in marketing for the Murfreesboro division of PETA. The girl loves her tofu.

She wants to tell others she loves tofu in the form of a vanity plate. Tennessee won’t allow it. Here’s what happened according to the Daily News Journal.

A local PETA employee who wanted a license plate declaring her love of tofu was turned down by the state due to a misinterpretation of the message, she said.

Whitney Calk, an assistant manager for youth marketing with PETA, filed paperwork to get a license plate reading “ILVTOFU” when she moved back home to Murfreesboro from Virginia in 2011, she said. The text was rejected for being vulgar.

Oh, so this is all just a huge misunderstanding! She doesn’t love to F! She loves tofu! Silly Tennessee. Alright, go ahead and give her the plates.

If this pretentious prick can have vanity plates, a vegan should be allowed to have her personal plates.
