The Kansas DMV Will Still Let You Get A RIMJOB And Other Banned License Plate Quirks

Kansas released their 1800-combination list of banned personalized license plates, and it makes for a surprisingly fascinating read. It sort of like what you might get if you locked your prudish grandmother in a room with Tosh.0 playing for 12 hours. Lots of indignant rage, but not a whole lot of understanding.

We've never been to Lawrence, KS, although two of the more significant people in our rich pageant are KU grads. Plus, y'know, Burroughs. Apparently, it's one of the only non-flat places in Kansas.
