Mr. Assman is hitting back at the government.

Ain't nobody tellin' Mr. Assman what to do.

Quote:After Dave Assman's license plate denied, Sask. man opts for giant 'ASSMAN' decal

When it comes to celebrating his family name, Dave Assman refuses to take no for an answer.

After Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) denied his latest request for an ‘ASSMAN’ vanity license plate, the Melville man had an oversized decal designed to replicate the plate in question and then placed the decal on the tailgate of his white Dodge Ram pickup truck.

Assman — pronounced OSS-men — said he appealed SGI’s decision Tuesday and received a message around four hours later that his request had once again been rejected. Then the railroad worker took action.

“I could have got a plate for the front but I really wanted a vanity plate on the back of my truck!” Assman said in a social media post showing off the decal.

“See, I hate to say it but I’m kinda a sarcastic ass and well I just wanted to go big!” he said later via direct message.

Guy is dealt a stupid name at birth but he decides to just own it. Awesome.

His neighbour, Harold Pussywagon, has declined comment.

If the province finds that decal offensive, distracting or in poor taste (despite being his name), they can probably make him remove it. But I like his moxy Happy

I was entirely on-board with this fella until the article (presumably at his instruction) felt the need to point out that it's pronounced "OSS-Men".

Sure it is, Assman.

If it were up to me, if he agreed to change the pronunciation of his name back to the correct ASS-man...THEN, and ONLY then do you get your plates. You don't get to own the hilarious plates if you're not willing to own the hilarious name too, Mr "Oss-men".

Edit: Tip of the cap to Hier for the "hitting back" thread title. I see you.

Good stuff. When I was in Med Hat, we had an Assman that worked for us so I knew where this was going before opening the thread, lol.

My dad had a 1969 Camaro and the Alberta Registries refused his request for a plate that said "ILUV69's"

Is he related to Dick Assman, the guy who used to appear on Letterman?

He's the nephew of Dick.

That's true TG.

As I understand it, he was close to his Uncle. They went everywhere together.

So much so that he became known as "Little Dick" Assman.

I wonder if the hockey player Aho pronounced ah-o, would get a plate with his last name? This is total bs and fully disrespectful to Mr Assman

Just like Mr Grabher from Nova Scotia. His son can use the name in Alberta but he can’t in NS! Getting tired of this “political correctness “ bs.

I wonder if Alberta registries would let me have my plate if I was asking today rather than 15 years ago?
