Good taste vs freedom of speech? 8


Last year, a few friends of mine had a good laugh over truck nutz! If you haven’t seen them, it’s a pair of fake testicles that you hang from your truck’s trailer hitch. They’re offered by several companies online (maybe in stores, I have no idea), and come in a variety of colors and sizes and styles. You can get ’em for key chains, you can get ’em with handicapped stickers on them, or with lipstick marks. You can even get ones that light up!

Today, I read that a member of the Virginia State Assembly is attempting to ban them saying they’re a ‘safety issue.’

Now I can’t say I’ve ever seen a set on a truck, and I don’t find them in particularly good taste, but is it a waste of a State legislator’s time to pursue a law against them?

What do you think?

    I have seen them on the back of pick ups and most of the time they are brass or gold and if they fell off they would probably do a ton of damage….

  • Wylie Kinson

    I’ve seen them too. Sure made me do a double take!!

    The ‘mature me’ said, “Ewww – disgusting” but the ‘immature me’ was chuckling at someone’s sick imagination.

    But gov’t money?? Eh, no. You can’t legislate class.

    Waste of time in legislature making a law to ban balls.

    When they could spend their time on health care and poverty issues and …I hate to be cliche but “Their NUTS”

    Savannah – they would indeed do damage, especially if they got run over and spat out from under tires and into someone’s windshield.

    Wylie – I’m with you, I’d be chuckling under my breath too.

    Amy – Yup, surely they must have something better to do with the tax dollars.

    Julia – I hate to admit it, but I had to google what the heck a vajayjay was. Then I went ‘Ooooh’ I wonder if there are some out there already. There was a big kafuffle up here recently because a local minister wanted her plates ‘Rev Jo’ renewed (she’d had them 20 years) and they wouldn’t renew them as they were deemed to ‘encourage dangerous driving’. These bureaucrats – go figure!

    My husband always laughs and points them out when we drive by a truck… but I’m usually a little behind and have to do the “where?where?” So to this day I have never seen one with my own eyes.

    I read the entire article you linked though… 3 years before that they were trying to outlaw baggy pants?!!?? LMAO!!!

    Trucks with nuts. Wow, I’m totally missing out by taking the subway. 😉

    I once worked for an car accessory manufacturer and came up with the slogan “Don’t let your balls get rusty!” for their trailer hitch covers. So I guess I have to say the balls are OK. LOL

    haha! …made me spew my coffee this morning.

    I love truck nuts! It’s so redneck and testosteronic it cracks me up.

    Cultures will always find ways for men to display their wares – look at any Classic Greek art, dangles flopping every which way…

    I say let ’em have their brag. 😉
