Alright, Virginia... If we can't smile, how can we be lovers?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, there's a new policy that 4 states put in effect, and VA, of course, is one of them... No smiling on drivers licenses. [Arkansas, Nevada and Indiana are the others.]
No, I'm not kidding.
Apparently some new face recognition technology that prevents people from making fake ID's is being used, but it doesn't work if you smile. So basically... All of those people you made fun of for having a mug shot on their ID, is going to be you. Fabulous.
My question is... Even though smiling doesn't work, do silly faces? What about gangster faces? I'm pretty much a pro at all of those...
Yeah.. I'm pretty sure the officials will love any of these, so when I go in to [finally] get my sideways ID, I'm doin' it.
Screw you VA. I always said NoVA needs to be its own state... We're more fun than this new rule.
PS: There is SOME good news for the DMV... DC is apparently the skinniest metropolitan city in the country! Wow! That doesn't say a lot for this country, that's for sure...
