No need to be so rude, and if you are going to use the word "genious" sarcastically the least you can do is spell it correctly.

Seems more likely that the DMV just randomly assigned that combination to somebody.

I did the same thing with my ED car in 2012. I left the ED plate on the front and haven't had a problem since.
