KANSAS CITY, Kan. — States do what they can to stop vulgar messages on personalized license plates.

But some people are just too clever and find a way to get their naughty or vulgar messages prominently displayed on their cars.

The Kansas Department of Revenue’s Division of Vehicles even has a list of words they won’t let you put on a plate.

For example:

REDRUM (which is MURDER backwards)

420 (pronounced four-twenty) is a term used to refer to marijuana… and apparently smoking it after school.

A55- (another way to ‘spell’ the synonym for a mule or buttocks)
