Ohio BMV wants YOU to name its new mascot

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles has unveiled its new mascot and is asking the Internet for name suggestions.

The character is essentially a humanized license plate; it has arms and legs and sports some rather large red sneakers and a friendly smile…which may seem ironic to some who have a less than pleasant experience when visiting the BMV.  

Some Facebook users turned their frustration into creativity suggesting names like “Overpriced” and “My twin on the front is unnecessary.”

One man commented, “How about ‘Wait’ because that’s what I do at the BMV.”

Some of the most popular names include “Platey McPlateface” and “Tag.”

Check out some of the suggestions or comment your own ideas on the Ohio BMV Facebook and Twitter pages. However, the bureau reminds its followers that only appropriate names will be considered.
