Call me : "ORGAN!"

On January 23, 2004, I was stopped in Richmond, South Africa by a charming black police woman, who first assured me that this was just a routine inspection.
I told her that I was driving an AVIS rental car, and was using my Pennsylvania driver's license.
She asked to see this license, and made some notes in her record book before handing it back to me with a polite : "Thank you, Mr. Donor!"

We had a good laugh about this when I explained the situation, but I rapidly changed my mind as to who was really looking dumb after having a good look at my license myself. What with all the blank space available inspired PENNDOT to write the words: "Organ Donor" right underneath the photograph?
