U can't say THAT about tofu!

Been following the story out of Denver, where Division of Motor Vehicles officials put a stop to a woman's plan to declare the joy of tofu on her license plate?

Officials worried that Kelly Coffman-Lee's short-hand suggested a very different sort of love.

Her proposed plates?

“ILVTOFU.”

Said Department of Revenue spokesman Mark Couch: “We don’t allow ’FU’ because some people could read that as street language for sex.”

 The 38-year-old Coffman-Lee says tofu is a staple of her family’s diet because they are vegan and that the DMV misinterpreted her message.

Which segs perfectly into another misunderstood artist, Miss Britney Spears, and another form of expression that should never have been green-lighted, the utterly craptastic "If U Seek Amy."
