PINK IS THE NEW WORD FOR VAGINA ACCORDING TO THE CALIFORNIA DMV.
Laura Curtin requested a personal license plate,PINK ELE, from the State of California. Laura paints pink elephants and people call her the pink elephant lady so she thought a license plate that said PINK ELE would be fun. After confirming the plate was available and paying for it by credit card the CA DMV sent her a letter rejecting the license. "The plate configuration has a sexual connotation, or is a term of lust or depravity." Laura followed directions and submitted a letter of explanation and a brochure of her beautiful pink elephants in a effort to clear up any misconceptions about the purpose of the license plate.
Enclosed is a copy of the CA DMV reply. Briefly K Kramer, Program Manager of the Environment License Plate (ELP) department stated that " Upon review, we are remaining with our original determination that the configuration is unacceptable. The word "PINK" is slang for vagina and has a sexual connotation."
Now what would the DMV have us "regular" people think of the word pink? According to the DMV where exactly would we be if we were "In the Pink?" Does all the pink for Breast Cancer or the brand Juicy Couture mean vaginas? What about the artist Pink? Does the DMV consider her to be a big vagina?
Has anyone read all the Urban Dictionary's slang for other colors? Blue is just a hue between green and indigo. Orange is the color vain assholes turn after a tanning session. Why does the CA DMV use the Urban Dictionary to define the word pink?
Why can't a person that paints pink elephants have a license plate that says PINK ELE?
