Ranging from subtly snarky to outrageously irreverent, the state's annual list of rejected custom license plates never disappoints.

Driving the news: The Ohio BMV rejected nearly 800 submissions last year, a list we obtained via a public records request.

  • Warning: It contains plenty of NSFW references, along with anti-President Biden phrases and some very mature poop jokes.

Some of our favorites:

  • BOLOCKS
  • LATE AF
  • FN JEEP
  • UGH FML
  • B8SC BIH
  • DOOKIE
  • MURD3R (Seriously, what were you thinking?)
  • IH8OHIO (Come on, we're not that bad!)

ICYMI: Here's the list from 2021.

💭 Alissa's thought bubble: I'm perpetually tardy, so the only thing that upsets me about "LATE AF" is that I didn't think of it first.
