I live in Ontario, a nanny state where the government likes to think for us and claims to know what is in our best interest. That includes personalized license plates and they go to great effort to limit what some of the more delicate citizens might find offensive. Nothing overtly sensitive or improper is allowed, and certainly no profanity. Near Toronto a few days ago I saw a vehicle with a personalized plate that read FUQUE. What a clear message to the nanny government. I'm still laughing. Wish I would have thought of it.

Over here they even have "censored" the numbers.
Things like 18 or 88. Not offensive you'd say?
No it isn't, but some people with great paranoia translate it to AH (= Adolf Hitler) and HH (= Heil... something).
Though not sure if Frankfurt may allow F UK 18 as a license plate.

But as long as they don't mind this, the world is still ok:

That would be good for Ontario. In Quebec you'd just be another seal. Lol

I guess that's why my state doesn't allow mixing letters and numbers, takes all the fun out of it
