washington dc license plateThe open records site the Government Attic has obtained a list, 68 pages worth, of words that can’t be used on Washington D.C. vanity license plates. Here’s the geeky ones banned that I found:

  • Doctor Who
  • Bruce Wayne
  • TARDIS
  • Batman
  • Cheetah
  • Jedi420
  • GUNDAMX
  • GUNDAM1
  • IRONMAN
  • DOCWHO

The collection of banned names, ominously known as the “Forbidden Tag List,” is kind of entertaining and you can see the full list below.
