The Denver Post: Kelley Coffman-Lee’s plan to advertise her love of tofu on a license plate ran afoul of censors at the Division of Motor Vehicles.

The 38-year-old mother of three asked the DMV to approve a special plate emblazoned with “ILVTOFU” for her Suzuki SL-7.

It was not 2 B.

The agency turned down the request, saying the plate might be offensive to some people.

“My whole family is vegan, so tofu is like a staple for us. I was just going to have a cool license plate, and the DMV misinterpreted my message,” the Centennial resident said.

It turns out that “FU” is on a long list of letter combinations barred by the division, said Mark Couch, spokesman for the Department of Revenue. Think of it as “Eff you,” he said.

“We don’t allow ‘FU’ because some people could read that as street language for sex,” Couch said.
