Tender Mercies

The DMV of Virginia was not amused by this license plate and had the owner turn it back to the state. I understand his original intention was to make a cannibal joke due to the bloody red hands on the license plate, but apparently the state felt there was a darker message. Obviously they never read H. P. Lovecraft.

Tender Mercies

The first thing I thought of was a famous parody of a well-known ultra-fundamentalist Chick tract, “Who Will Be Eaten First”. I put a copy of the offending license plate together with an image of Cthulhu to make the point more obvious. Anyway, the bloody red hands on the original Virginia license plate was just asking for something funny.

Lighten up, world!
