More commonly referred to as Truck Nuts
Always thought these things were funny. Of course, it's always funnier when they're brass. But then again, I'm a bit of a redneck.
And the only reason I even bother to post this is due to this news story:Chesapeake Delegate Sponsors Nutty Bill - UPDATEa Chesapeake lawmaker introduced a bill that bans "truck nuts" from your truck or SUV.
What, now we're being told what kind of accessories we can and cannot put on our vehicles?
Spruill says these types of dangling do-dads are tacky, vulgar, and downright embarassing. It still has a long way to go before it ever becomes law.
Even if they are seen as tacky, vulgar, and embarassing, doesn't our right to free speech protect against this kind of ban? Hell, more than half of what people say to each other in the open streets of America is tacky, vulgar, and potentially embarassing. Where's the bill to make these statements illegal? To make normal, everyday people shut the hell up or fear penalty of fine or imprisonment?
Spruill says the idea for the bill came to him after the daughter of one of the people in his district saw a pair of the testicles hanging from the back of a truck in traffic. That's when Spruill put the bill in action. Although he says he hasn't found anyone to co-sponsor it with him.
No shit he hasn't found anyone to co-sponsor this bill. How many people want to look that idiotic? "Why yes, I helped co-sponsor the bill that made fake testicles on a truck illegal. What's that? Drug problem? Prostitution issue? Homeless people? World Hunger and Global Warming? We've no time for things of such insignificance. We've got to make sure the children don't see dangling balls from a truck."
Hey Einstein, ever take your kids to the zoo? Have you tried to pas a bill to remove the testicles of ever animal in the zoo? Heaven forbid we let the children see that. Or worse yet, try to have their parents explain it.
I think this registers as close as possible to a " 10" on my "why do we give a shit" meter. I've got an idea. Why don't our politicians, our lawmakers, worry about the shit that actually affects people on a daily basis instead of some fake nuts hanging from a truck. Out of spite, I'm getting these and putting them on my truck as soon as possible.
Just because a sect of people don't have class, common sense, or decent taste does not mean that what they do should be made illegal. Then again, if that were the case, more than half of our elected officials would be behind bars. I'm starting to like this. If we can put a rider on the bill that would ensure "stupid" could get arrested as well, then I'll bite, but otherwise, get your hands off my nuts.
