74-year-old Ohio resident Pat Niple has been forced to rescind her vanity license plates after she received a letter from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles stating that the online acronym "NWTF" now violates their profanity standards.
Niple said the plates were acquired by her late husband, an abbreviation for their christmas tree business, Northwood Tree Farm. She has said that she plans on appealing the decision.
During a visit to the BMV, she asked them what the offending phrase is. A whispering clerk responded that it started with "now what the."
