Fart Plate Causes a Stir
The Asheville DMV got a little embarrassed recently when they let one slip 💨. After approving an application for a vanity plate that read "FARTSM" back in October, they quickly retracted their approval a few weeks ago after finding it was "offensive and in poor taste".
Rather than leave it to the DMV to be the arbiter of taste, local software engineer/hero is fighting the ruling, working tirelessly with a band of merry redditors to keep FART on her plate.
Naturally, as with most American activism, a shell organization was born - The Friends of Asheville Recreational Trails has developed a healthy following with unclear motives.
