State Sponsored Phone Sex

"Hello? Thank you for calling the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles. For license renewal, press 1. For blowjobs, press two. For handicap stickers, press 3. For bondage and domination, press 4. If you are using a rotary phone, please hold for further mastubatory instructions."

This story represents government ineptitude at it's most perverse and hysterical...

N.J. License Plate Callers Get Sex Line

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey motorists calling a toll-free number seeking handicapped or animal-friendly license plates are getting a little more action than they expected. Instead of getting the state Motor Vehicle Commission, callers reached a phone sex operation.

The mix-up happened because the MVC has the newer 888 toll-free area code, but its number was mistakenly listed with the traditional 800 code on the Web site and printed material distributed by the state Division of Disability Services. The Web site has been corrected, but thousands have received the printed material, The Star-Ledger of Newark reported Thursday.

The wrong area code was on several hundred cards promoting the animal-friendly plates that were left on countertops by state Department of Health and Senior Services. Those cards were also in a newsletter that the Associated Humane Societies sent last month to 65,000 people.

State officials told the newspaper that they are attempting to contact those who got the printed material and make stickers with the right number to place over the wrong number in brochures.
