The state of Oregon wants a family to return their vanity license plates because their surname is offensive.
The plates, UDINK1 UDINK2 and UDINK3 are on the vehicles of Mike and Shelly Udink and their son Kalei.
Last summer, Kawika Udink's application for UDINK4 was rejected and the state ordered that the other three plates be returned.
The panel's ruling surprised Mike Udink, whose name is Dutch. He says it is a common last name in The Netherlands.
"Since when can a panel dictate whether your name's offensive or not?" asked Udink, a lineman for Pacific Power. [Link]
