Answers after the break.
When I first saw this plate, I asked myself whether people in Kentucky can ask for their religious affiliation to be added to their license plates. That made no sense to me, so I figured maybe this driver taped a “Christian” sticker over some Kentucky slogan (“The grass is blue-er over our side of the fence?”).
I’m sure most of you figured it out, but I had to look it up. Kentucky license plates contain the name of the county where the plate was issued. This driver lives in Christian County, Kentucky.
Granted, it’s a little weird that a county is named “Christian County.” There are at least three such counties, in Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri. There was once a small Jewish community in Christian County, Kentucky. I don’t know how they felt about their license plates.
As best as I can tell, there is no “Jewish County” anywhere in the U.S. Google finds the idea so ridiculous, it changes the search to “Jewish Country.”
Curious what y’all thought when you saw the license plate above.
