File this one under "I sure am glad that I don't live in a theocratic state."
The license plate that you see mocked up at right was just deemed illegal in the state of Utah--after it had been issued and used for a decade.
Turns out that using "Merlot" on a plate is illegal in the most oppressive of states because it is an intoxicant. I guess the people running things in Utah have a different view of freedom of speech--and clearly don't have anything more important to focus on.
Maybe I should get my own plate.
What do you think?
