Back in October, when Karly Sindy from Asheville, North Carolina, received her notification to re-register her truck on the DMV website and was offered the chance to renew her license plate at the same time, she thought she'd have some fun. Trying her luck, she tried "FART," assuming it would be rejected. But to her surprise, just a few weeks later, she received the approval and the vanity plate in the mail! She couldn't believe it!

As Karly drove on the roads with her new license plate, she laughed at the way people responded to the plate. "It's great! People are waving and taking pictures! It makes them happy," she told Jimmy Kimmel on the late-night talk show. But it appears not everyone felt this way. Last week, Karly received a letter from the DMV informing her that someone had complained about the plate. But she may be allowed to keep it if she could convince them what the plate means to her. Will she have to give up on her dream to entertain the people?

It seems Karly Sindy was not willing to go down without a fight. Taking to Reddit, she asked the internet for their help. Together, they came up with the ultimate loophole. "What we ended up coming up with is that F.A.R.T. is an acronym for Friends of Asheville Recreational Trails," she told Jimmy. She then wrote a letter to the D.M.V. to explain that she should be able to keep the plate as it is merely a reference to her group, which means so much to her. She then held a club meeting with a surprising attendance of fifteen people! Maybe this club could have a real purpose!

Jimmy hilariously notified Karly that she was not the only one attempting a more risky license plate. He then shared the hilarious list of words that are also banned by the state of North Carolina, including Covid and Moist! When questioned by Jimmy if she genuinely thought the DMV would fall for her sneaky scheme, she replied, "I really hope so! I've spent a lot on it! We have stickers; we have over 60 people on the mailing list and a website!" She has yet to receive a response from the DMV on her unique claim, but we can't help but admire how far she is gone to protect her FART license plate dream! Stay tuned for more hilarious updates.
