    Maryland will gladly take $50 a year from residents who want vanity license plates. However, one can't put whatever one wants on a tag.

    There are more than 4,000 words, phrases and letter-number combinations that the Motor Vehicle Administration has on its Objectionable Plate List.

    The Baltimore Sun reported most of the list is too vulgar for publication.

    When someone applies for a vanity tag online, a computer checks to see if there is a block.

    Not all banned words are scatological or sexual. “FBI” and “CIA” are banned, as are “HEROIN” and “KILLALL.”
