Well, Truck Nuts, that is. You know, the ********* that hang off of trailer hitches. Those have been banned in Florida and are now punishable with a $60 fine for letting your junk hang out.

From Autoblog:

Quote:
Truck drivers in the great phallic state of Florida can kiss their Truck Nutz good-bye after getting the shaft from their state government. The state senate decided that adorning a hitch with a set of bull clock-weights should be punishable by a $60 fine, though the vote was far from unanimous. Sen. Jim King, (R-Jacksonville) actually owned a set before his wife insisted the truck be emasculated, and the adept politician was on record calling the genital display "an expression of truckliness." If I lived in Florida, that guy would have my vote.

It kills us that people can talk on the phone while putting on makeup or eating a cheeseburger, but Truck Nutz are considered a distraction worthy of a substantial fine. And how in the hell are the cops going to keep a straight face when they have to approach a car and say "Excuse me sir, but do you realize there are ********* hanging from your bumper?" Get that little conversation on tape and you've got an instant YouTube classic.

Trucks are supposed to have Manly Fortitude...

You act as though this is the first time they used bass ackwards logic to pass a law. I know full well it isn't... However, I can't say I'd miss those stupid things... I also know I'd have a difficult time explaining to my daughter what "that thing hanging from that truck" is...

They are outlawed in Ohio too if I am not mistaken... I think they are absolutely disgusting and totally inappropriate.

I actually found them kind of ugly, but a lot of people liked them and they honestly kind of funny. I do agree 100% with you jr, they can talk on phone, do their hair, eat breakfast, etc, but yet something that does not affect how the person is driving the vehicle is taken away....Hmmmm, that is interesting.
