    Woman's 10-Year-Old Plate Now Called Obscene
    She Owned Christmas Tree Farm With Late Husband

    POSTED: 10:49 am EDT August 4, 2006

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A Central Ohio woman said she has had the same license plate on her car for more than a decade, but now the state is calling her personalized plate obscene.

    Survey: Should She Keep Her Plate?

    Pat Niple turned 74 years old on Tuesday. She normally ordered her license plates and renewal stickers by mail. But this year, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles returned her check, accompanied by a letter.

    "The letter stated that I could no longer have my license plate, which was NWTF," she said.

    Niple's personalized plates are NWTF, an abbreviation of Northwood Tree Farm -- a business she owned with her late husband. It also means something else, officials said.

    "Apparently, the young people use it on the computer," she said.

    Niple went to a BMV office to get some answers. A clerk had to whisper what the acronym means to some people.

    "Now what the –- and the last word begins with an f," Niple said. "I said, 'You got to be kidding me.'"

    BMV officials said they have a set of standards that includes no profanity or obscene language. So, Niple has to use a temporary tag until her new, acceptable plates arrive.

    A BMV representative said Niple can appeal to the registrar by writing a letter explaining what the acronym means to her. Officials will then make a decision based on her plea.

    Niple said she plans to appeal and that she will at least keep the plates and frame them in memory of the business her family once owned.

    "My kids are sort of laughing at it because they're like, 'Now what has Mom done again?' I think they think I'm mischievous or something," she said.

            You think they would figure it out if I submitted a plate for:

            FTM PTB?

            I might offend the mutts.

              That is about as dumb as people getting all ****y when someone uses the word niggardly.

              Just shows the lack of common sense most people have.

                      Ohio Woman Says Acronym Stands For Late Husband's Business

                      COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A Central Ohio grandmother fought for and won the right to keep her personalized license plate after allegations that they were profane.

                      Pat Niple, 74, said she wants to set the record straight about her problem, WCMH-TV reported.

                      "I'm not an obscene granny," Niple said.

                      Niple's personalized license plates are NWTF, an abbreviation of Northwood Tree Farm -- a business she owned with her late husband. It also means something else, officials said.

                      Niple went to an Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles office to get some answers. A clerk had to whisper what the acronym means to some people.

                      "Now what the –- and the last word begins with an 'f,'" Niple said.

                      Niple was told that her license plates she has displayed for 10 years would be taken away. She said she was astonished and appealed to keep the abbreviated reminder of her late husband's business.

                      "You can't take any letter of the alphabet and make something out of it. I don't think we need to give in to obscenity or derogatory things," she said.

                      After weeks of debate and national media attention, Niple's plates were returned to her last weekend.

                          And as soon as they figure out who it is, they will be terminated for unauthorized use of a brain.
