Cultural icons and all

Oklahoma is planning to redesign the standard state license plate again, and the Oklahoman is running a poll featuring six of the preliminary designs. Of the versions shown in the poll, I lean toward #1, which has an asymmetrical design — something we’ve never had before — and a decent rendering of Allan Houser’s “Sacred Rain Arrow” sculpture.

Still, given the current emphasis on our collective chunkiness as a people, I’m thinking that a more accurate plate might look something like this:


Proposed new Oklahoma plate

After all, Will Rogers never met a cherry limeade he didn’t like.

Addendum: There’s a discussion at the TulsaNow forum.
