    Would it be illegal to put the full phrase as a bumper sticker on her car? If not, what's the big deal of it being on her license plate?

    FU Denver, just kidding. I love my city, but I can understand them not wanting what it looks like it's saying on a plate.

    The government didn't say it was illegal, they just said they would not make it for her, just as they wouldn't make a bumper sticker that says the same thing.

    I think they should let her have it. People can take it how they want. It's freedom of expression. :p

    They do have heart symbols for license plates.

    She could do this:

    I(heart symbol)(space)TOFU

    Oh come on, ILVTOFU could very possibly stand for: I LV TO Fondle Unicorns, and since when did fondling mythical creatures come off as rude? Oh that beautiful horn....

    I think they said no as more of a safety thing. Could you imagine the tailgating she would have to deal with. Not to mention the number of people following her home or blowing their horns and wildly gesturing. Poor thing, driving along innocently thinking, "I never knew so many people loved tofu..." :rolleyes:

    I'm sure I remember seeing on telly that someone here in the UK is driving about with PEN 1 S on his licence plate. He said he has ben pulled over by the police for having an obscene plate.
