I was just denied my request for a personalized license plate from the state of Arizona for my new ride. What did I request, well of course.......

GRRINGO

They said it was disparaging and offensive to others. I asked them who the "others" were, they told me "well, people of all races".

Dumb-bats......the appeal is on......this will be fun.

Dude, bummer. Been out of commission the last few weeks, just got married!

I guess my request for "Black Gringo" would be tossed as well? What sort of ride does a gringo tool around in?

Congratulations Antone, where was the honeymoon?

I'm guessing Black Gringo wouldn't fly, but that would be verrrry funny.

Dark blue, 4-door Dodge Truck, 5.7L w/ a Hemi, 22 inch chrome rims, other extra's, Joe pimped out.......nah......it's cool and hauls "a".

I just told Mr. Gringo to tell the DMV that Grringo is the nickname my family gave him down in México, but I don't think that would fly...
Congratulations, BG; have a very long and happy marriage...

Antone, went to Cabo in 1992, I know its quite a bit different now and pretty Americanized I hear. Try out Manzanillo, Huatulco or just north of Puerto Vallarta, the Mrs. knows of cool place there.

EB, the folks on the Special Plate Committee are/were at a loss for words, can't wait for the next step!


Thanks Nanc, now that would be funny. I'm thinkin' that would be shot down quicker than mine.

Over at Angel's site, that just seemed like a natural comment ;-)
