As if being a young person isn't hard enough, the California DMV is now making motorists under the age of 21 carry around vertical drivers licenses that immediately identify you as underage -- and unable to purchase alcohol.
Can you imagine being pulled over while on a date, with the cop asking, "Are you vertical?" "No man, I'm horizontal, I swear."
Wow. Talk about a game-killer. And it's unfair. What if other demographic groups had to pocket differently shaped driver's licenses:
Known ecstasy users would have to obtain purple-fur-covered licenses.
Drivers over the age of 60 would have to carry iPad-sized driver's licenses with large print.
Cab drivers would have knife-shaped driver's licenses that actually could be used as weapons in the likely event they are robbed on-the-job.

Illegal immigrants would finally be able to get California driver's licenses ... that look like Home Depot credit cards.
Alleged cocaine users (we're looking at you Lindsay and Paris) would be able to get an optional license that has a mirrored surface along with a sharp, razor's edge.
