Swedes decline to FCKU2MF

Vanity numberplate applicant told to eff off

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A Stockholm chap will not be inviting fellow motorists to FCKU2MF, after the Swedish Transport Agency, aka Transportstyrelsen, told him to take his vanity numberplate application and eff right off.

Swedes have been able to apply for personalised plates since 2000, but the 6,000 kronor (£530) statements "may not be formed in such a way that may cause offence", as the Local puts it.

This would explain why FCKU2MF, "Gestapo" and "Sexyboy" are on the rejected list. Likewise, trademark-busting applications such as "My BMW" and "HEINEKN" were given short shrift. ®
