For pity’s sake. Robb posted about this nonsense some weeks ago, when a Washington state delegate proposed a ban of those ever-idiotic rubber testicles some geniuses choose to dangle from the trailer hitch of their pickup trucks. Florida, not to be out-stupided, is now doing the same in the state Senate:
The Florida Senate today debated and passed an amendment to impose a $60 fine on Truck Nutz, the novelty vehicle adornment attached to trailer hitches that resemble the dangling southern end of a northbound bull.
The popular accessory to truck trailer hitches is on its way to being subject to a fine in a bill debated — albeit delicately — on the Senate floor Thursday.
Although lawmakers said they’re widespread in North Florida, the bill says that displaying reproductions of bull genitalia — one version has the brand name Truck Nutz — on a vehicle or trailer can lead to a $60 fine, charges of a moving violations, and points against a driver license.
The ban was proposed by Sen. Cary Baker, R-Eustis, who said the items are “not appropriate,” even though he sees a lot of them in his district.
You know what? I am not paying you people to debate moronic crap like this. Our utility bill was over $200 last month because our local utility company tacks on a fuel charge roughly equal to our entire consumption charge for the month…yes, that’s right, doubling our actual utility bill. How about we debate THAT instead of some moronic redneck vehicle accoutrement, eh?
