The other day, a young punk in a BMW drove by with a vanity plate that read “PEN15.” I rolled my eyes at his immaturity and expressed my outrage. “What a pervert.”
Later on the road, I saw another car with the license plate “SMWHRE.”
“Oh, great!” I remarked to my mom. “Look: S&M whore!”
Before I could begin a diatribe on the ever-declining state of society, she interrupted me. “Um, I think it’s supposed to read ‘Somewhere.’ As in ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ Because there’s a rainbow. Get it?”
Oops. What’s the takeaway? Judge not lest ye be judged…a pervert.
