[ The following is a series of direct quotations from the Winnipeg Free Press' full list of Manitoba Public Insurance rejected vanity plates, published on October 11th, 2013. More specifically: this is every single entry under the 'EXPLANATION' column, in order of appearance, arranged and joined by punctuation but otherwise [sic] and unaltered.

[ This blog has conducted a similar experiment previously. Dramatic audio readings are available on request. ]
