St. George Store Sells AWESOME Southern Utah Themed Shirts!
I stopped by a VERY local St. George store the other day... Hurst Ace Hardware. If you're my mom, or have been here a long time, you call it Hurst Ben Franklin! My mom needed someone to take her to Hurst to ship something, and while she was working on that, I popped by their clothing section and was BAFFLED at what I found! They sell some AWESOME Southern Utah themed t-shirts. Some of these shirts have vintage items that we've almost forgotten about! Here they are!
SPRING BREAK IN ST. GEORGE:
Spring Break in St. George used to be LITERALLY CRAZY! St. George Boulevard was packed. People would drag back and forth and walk from end to end. Tons of people would get arrested. What a time to be alive!
DIXIE STATE REBELS:
Dixie State College, home of the Rebels! Totally vintage, and it would be tough to find this stuff anywhere besides Hurst.
STREETS IN SOUTHERN UTAH:
St. George city streets, Washington City streets, and even Cedar City streets!
Sand Town must be a nickname St. George has had in the years before I was born. I've never once referred to St. George as "Sand Town", but we do have the Sands Motel! Maybe that's where it got it's name!
If you're unaware, Dog Town is Washington City. More specifically it's the area by Washington Elementary. I remember kids at school growing up that had "DOG TOWN PRIDE!"
Dick's Cafe is sadly gone, but was featured in Robert Redford's 1979 hit The Electric Horseman. The Flood Street Theater, or The Dollar Theater was a staple here in St. George. McKnight Sporting Goods was on St. George Boulevard and had that guy out in front of the store, and he was MASSIVE! Like 15 feet tall!
Snow Canyon! Not the high school, but the actual area.
PLENTY of St. George themed T-shirts! Tons of different colors and styles too!
HURST VARIETY STORE:
A Southern Utah Original since since 1946, Hurst First!
Dixie Downs, baby! It's gotten a lot better over there... But for a while IT WAS ROUGH!
The Dixie Round-Up Rodeo is MY FAVORITE TIME in St. George! I love it!
Utah! Different styles of shirts, and different colors.
If you're looking for something CUTE and a little feminine, they have that too!
30 HILARIOUSLY FUNNY Banned License Plates In Utah!
Everyday while you're driving you'll DEFINITELY come across some of those Vanity License Plates! Maybe it's your nickname, or a funny little saying. Here are some of the FUNNIEST Vanity License Plates that got DENIED in Utah!
1. 0 F Given:
Zero F's Given... Pretty straight forward! Utah said "NAH!"
Ass Man. It worked on Seinfeld! What if you're a Proctologist?!
Blaze it! A reference to puffin the Devil's Lettuce! No drug references on plates!
Bitchin! It was cool to say in the 80's & 90's, but NOT okay on your license plate in Utah!
BYU Sucks. I feel like we ALL know someone that would LOVE to have this plate!
Choose The Right! Probably banned because of the religiousness attached. Honestly, I would be pretty impressed to see the person that would be the FIRST to get this one though.
Deport 'Em. Yeah, this one actually made it out to the streets before getting a complaint and Utah taking it away.
Dookie. Poop. Not sure why you'd want your license plate to be DOOKIE but hey! That's your thing, not mine!
Deez Nuts. These Nuts. You knew someone was going to try it! What if you own a Nut Shop though?!
Eat Taco. Who doesn't love tacos?! However, this one was banned based on the potential sexuality undertones behind it.
Fu** You Biden. Come on... You really thought this one would make it past the state?! No way!
Hey Ugly. Apparently you can't have ANYTHING that someone would find offensive. But if YOU take offense to this... That says more about how you feel about yourself!
Hot & Sexy. Banned! But I really appreciate the self love and confidence! WORK IT GIRL!
I Hate You. Well, IH8U too, jerk!
Just Don't Give A Fu**. That's not someone I want to be on the road with! Stay FAR AWAY from a car that doesn't care!
Libtard: Google defines Libtard as "a contemptuous term for a person with left-wing political views.
Lick My. Usually followed by a few choice words. Actually surprised this one was caught by the state. I would've bet this one would've made it to the streets!
Move B*tch. GET OUT THE WAY! Yeah, pretty offensive. Not happening in Utah!
Need To Poo. At least they're honest! They've got IBS, and sometimes it hits and everyone needs to get out of the way!
Oh My Fu***ing Gosh Move. Yeah, absolutely banned in Utah!
On Your A**. It's called tailgating, and it's illegal, sir!
Phat A**. There's a BIG difference between a Fat Butt and a Phat Butt... and if you don't know the difference then that's on YOU!
23. P00 BUTT:
Poo Butt. I appreciate the effort, because I would really laugh If I pulled up behind you, but yeah, there's no way Utah approves of this!
Suck These. A for Effort, but no way! Whoever is in charge of approving or denying these are shockingly hip!
Tesla Slut. This one, I TOTALLY appreciate the creativity and the hustle, and I think Utah should allow them to have it!
The Poop. There he is everyone! The Poop!
Your Mom. Come on! This one isn't even bad! I like this one!
Weed 420. Whoever attempted this one was ABSOLUTELY HIGH! There's no way you'd think the state would approve of this one!
29. MILF AF:
Mother I'd Like To Fu**, As Fu**. It doesn't make a lot of sense when you break it down like that, but yeah, Utah said no!
Di*khead. I would actually totally appreciate knowing that the guy driving around me is a Di*khead! I would steer clear... literally.
Wow! Utah's Next License Plates??
Utah's license plates are... OKAY. The Arches plate is AMAZING, but the others? Ehh...
I decided to design the NEXT license plates for MY HOME STATE: Utah!
1. The Dixie Plate:
There's not a chance this thing will fly, but I want it! I'd have it tomorrow! Fairly simple, but gives the St. George Pride Vibe with the sunset behind it. Showing clear skies that we get nearly everyday in St. George.
2. Modern Utah Jazz Plate:
No. Forget what I said on the Dixie Plate. I would have THIS ONE on my car tomorrow! The Jazz just did a whole new rebrand and they're keeping it simple. Bright yellow with the black. It pops. I love this plate!
3. The Beehive Plate:
The Beehive State, The Beehive Plate. An actual hive in the background with gooey honey running behind the numbers. This one would be the most UNIQUE plate in the world, and I'm kind of crazy about it!
4. The Elk Plate:
This ones for all the dudes out there. The Elk is the state animal of Utah, and I know there would be TONS of back-country folk that would sport this bad boy! Come on!
5. The Fry Sauce Plate:
Our most VALUABLE resource: Fry Sauce! It's a Utah staple, and it's GLORIOUS! In Fry Sauce We Trust!
6. The Califutah Plate.
This one is made for all those Californian's moving to Utah and trying to turn Utah into California. It's essentially the California license plate with Utah instead of California... Just to make them a little more comfy here.
See! It's a dead ringer! They'd LOVE IT!
Who do we need to send these to? Let's have the MOST AWESOME plates in the nation! Come on, Utah!
