Jagoff License Plates Banned in PA


Yesterday, 96.1 Freak Show hosts, Mikey and Big Bob posted, on their website, the 100 license plates that are banned in Pennsylvania. One of them is the word Jagoff.

Here are some of the details:

PennDOT keeps an internal “Do Not Issue” list of about 10,000 different text/numbers combinations that it finds too rude, crude or generally inappropriate for the roadways of the Keystone State.

Among the banned: “UANOYME,” “NOHATRZ,” “YOMOMMA” and “CALL911.”

As an FYI, a couple of years ago, the Pittsburgh City Paper’s Chris Potter wrote an inside-back-cover full page article about the history of the word Jagoff.  It comes from Jagger Bush and has no swearing connotation whatsoever.

So, as of right now, we are officially banning the word “Pennsylvania” from our blog (until we need to use it to make a joke).  This place that borders Ohio, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and Delaware will now be known to us as “The Commonwealth Whose Name is Banned By Us.”

We need to ban together and figure out how we can get the word “Jagoff” on to license plates in “The Commonwealth Whose Name is Banned By Us.  Like this guy did:


Might it be one of our followers getting a plate that says FFOGAJ so that , when you hold it in a mirror, you see it?

Second, we are going to suggest to the “”The Commonwealth Whose Name is Banned By Us” that additional terms/ phrases be IMMEDIATELY removed from the publication due to possible confusion for offensiveness:

  • Ho (as in Santa’s Ho-Ho-Ho or Hawaiian singer Don Ho or his sister who is indeed a Ho unless she married and changed her name)
  • Hoe (as in garden hoe)
  • Screw (as in a cylindrical rod incised with one or more helical or advancing spiral threads)

In the meantime, to the people running “The Commonwealth Whose Name is Banned By Us,”  LIGHTEN UP Ya Jagoffs!!!

In the comments section below, feel free to add OTHER potentially offensive words that should be banned OR other ways to get Jagoff on to a license plate.

For the production!

Needed: Ya Jagoff Sailors and Boat Builders ASAP



The Three Rivers Regatta is coming up, July 2-4th.  Again this year, they are holding an “Anything That Floats” race.  The winning team wins $2,500 for their favorite charity.

So here’s the deal.  There will be a Ya Jagoff vessel in this race and we need 9 people to be on the boat.  If you want to help but don’t want to be on the boat, we could use vessel builders, team support, beer and chipped ham sandwiches!

Want to be on the team?  We need:

A vessel design engineer: Someone to take charge in a boat design.  (I can’t nail two boards together without screwing it up)

A safety officer: Someone to bring life jackets for all team members and 25′ of safety rope.  (I don’t think my Dollar Store Floaties are gonna cut it)

Costume Designer:  Someone to tell us what we are going to wear so that we look like a team.  (We will provide the Don’t Be a Jagoff t-shirts)

Human Power: Rowers, paddlers, feet kickers..someone to make that thing go fast

Support Team: Someone with a truck or trailer or whatever we need to get the vessel to the river the day of the race (I ain’t carrying the thing up Carson Street and through the North Side)

If we have more than 9 people interested in being on the vessel, we’ll hold a raffle.  Once the team is assembled, we will determine the charity of choice for the winnings.  Possibly, the Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Foundation.

By they way, if you want to know what day and time the race is, I have no idea. The details are not on the website yet but, all of the legal paperwork for everyone to sign is there!
