Friend of the Environment
My home state of Illinois has a series of special license plates, each promoting a certain cause. In exchange for the higher fees for these plates, you get the satisfaction of donating $25 to that cause via the Secretary of State, and a special license plate to show your neighbors that you care about something and are therefore better than they are. The first of these that I remember is the environmental license plate, and it's still a popular choice. This past week, while driving in Lake County, Illinois, I saw one such environmental license plate on a GMC Envoy.
That's right, a GMC Envoy. A big, honkin' SUV.
Apparently there's no Irony plate available in Illinois.
One could argue that someone with a 4x4 is more outdoorsy and therefore more in tune with the environment, but this was a suburban mom who probably hasn't gone camping in her adult life. And if she did give a crap about nature she wouldn't be driving a 16 mpg vehicle to get groceries. If she wants to give her kids asthma why doesn't she just teach them to smoke?
I hope the state of Illinois uses the $25 to tell her she's an idiot.
