Yet another reason to hate the Department of Motor Vehicles: Virginia's DMV has reportedly revoked a man’s custom “Kids First” license plate emblazoned with the letters EATTHE. 

Eat. The. Kids First. Oooooooh...I get it.

Funny! And likely harmless: The plate had apparently been in circulation for several years with no reported adverse effects. But as Jalopnik explains, someone seems to have gotten the idea that the "plate was advocating something beyond hilarious cannibalism.” Whole sad, humorless story here.
