Vanity, Thy Name Is Florida

Florida has a buttload of choices for vanity license plates. And in case you missed it last week, they've introduced a few Jesus Plates for those who need more than a bunch of bumper stickers. To be honest, I can't work up a whole lot of bile over this one...it inspires more of a sigh and a "head meet desk" moment.

But I couldn't pass up the chance to introduce you to one of my new heroes. In response to the Jesus Plates and bitter over proposed salary cuts for state workers, State Senator Al Lawson has put an amendment onto the bill calling for a "Can A Brotha Get A Break?" license plate.

"The plate must prominently display an image of state Senator Alfred 'Al' Lawson, Jr. The phrase 'Can a Brotha Get a Break?' shall appear in bold letters on the bottom of the plate."

Proceeds from the plate would go to, "Employees Relief Fund for the purpose of offsetting salary and benefit cuts by the Legislature and providing grief counseling."

I've got a serious man-crush going.

I literally just spit coffee through my nose.

That is just fucking hysterical.
