The Daily Word in alien license plates, the religion of Cher and gerbils causing the plague

By
The Daily Word

It's Tuesday and the sun is shining here in Albuquerque. JK! It's freezing.

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! CLOSE ALL THE SCHOOLS! CANCEL WORK!

You’re chewing too loud! Apparently there is a name for the feeling of rage you experience when the person next to you is breathing too loud.

Rats are not to blame for the Black Death! A new study suggests gerbils are the actual culprits in the “second plague pandemic.”

Feeding your baby peanut butter might prevent her from serious nut allergies in the future. Peanut butter for the win! PS. Don’t try this at home.

Cher calls out Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson for vetoing a bill that would allow for more LGBT anti-discrimination laws. Like we needed any more reasons to worship Cher.

New Mexico wants to offer license plates that have anything from aliens to horned lizards on them. Duh. Let them do it.

Centennial License Plates

By

They've arrived. As of last week, you can demand the centennial license plate at the state's MVDs. The design was sold as "retro," because it's based on past plates. (Not to be all state-pridey, but I like it. What do you think?)

You know what's even better than that plate? Six babies in a blender (zing!). No, how about this amateur radio operator plate, available to "any New Mexico resident who holds an official commercial or amateur radio station license in good standing issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)." Rad.

Kitschier still? Take this horseless carriage plate ... please. "A 'horseless carriage' is a motor vehicle at least 35 years old, owned as a collector's item, and used solely for exhibition and educational purposes."

Then there's this patriot plate, and someone at MVD was being a real crackup when he or she wrote: "The Patriot registration plate is available to any motor vehicle owner who is a patriot. No proof of patriotism is required."

Damn. There's a lot I didn't know about license plates. Scope the many varieties here.
