Welcome to the Thursday food "nooooo." That's "nooooo" as in "no way", "no they didn't", or "no one in their right mind would buy that."
Kelly Coffman-Lee from Colorado applied for a personalized license plate that would tell the world of something she loves. She chose the following for her vanity plate:
Now, let me ask you what would go through your mind if you were behind the car with this license plate. Ya, that’s what the Colorado DMV thought, too.
What Ms. Coffman-Lee was trying to tell people was that she loved tofu. But state officials didn’t think that’s what the license plate would be understood to mean. You can’t blame them.
According to the Huffington Post
The 38-year-old Coffman-Lee says tofu is a staple of her family's diet because they are vegan and that the DMV misinterpreted her message.
I suppose that if you were told that the license plate was about tofu before you saw the letters together, that’s what you would interpret it as. Here’s a clip of the people at Fox News, who knew it was about tofu, trying to figure out what the fuss is all about.
