The Florida State Senate just passed an amendment to a transportation bill that bans Truck Nutz, the metal dangling testicles you’ve seen hanging from the hitches of classier pickups around town. The final vote is Thursday. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my state. (via kottke)

    Though I feel that the bulls balls are of bad taste, I don’t think that this is something that the state should be spending my money on enforcing. sorry.

    Although they’re classless and idiotic, I like them because they help identify some of the a-holes out on the road.

    Like Mikhail, I have to say that I would rather have my taxpayer monies spent on something other than this happy horse hockey.

    Yea I’ve got to agree with everyone here, while the “Nutz” might be somewhat offensive, there are more important things the legislature should be focusing on, like solving the damn budget crisis.

    Who knows, at $60 a ticket, maybe this will help solve some of the budget crisis. At least in some counties….

    Either they are obscene, which would render them already illegal, or they’re not.

    Let’s keep the legal code svelte.

    Remeber, Adam, the pregnant pigs are eating for two.

    I really don’t understand you people. You actually, truly, honestly believe that the state legislature has more important things to do than debate and vote on matters like this? And you actually, truly, honestly want them to? That legislature? Those people?

    After all this time, how can you truly say that you think we’d be better off if they did something other than play with little plastic testicle sacks?

    Squathole: One can dream!
    We dream of a Legislature that does not play with little plastic testicle sacks but works on solving the actual problems this state faces.

    I rather see the Bull Nutz hanging on the Legislature’s chin than on the back of a truck.

    I hate to say I told you so, but…

    If the Legislators had any balls, they would tackle the real issues.

  12. Adam    Tue Apr 22, 05:54 PM #  

    Look, when we make ballz illegal then only criminals will have ballz.

    First they came for the teens who wear the sagging jeans.

    But I did not speak out because I am not a teen nor do I wear sagging jeans.

    Then they came for the truck owners who display sagging Truck Nutz on their trucks.

    But I did not speak out because I am not a truck owner nor would I ever publicly display a set of plastic nuts.

    Then they came for the bloggers who blog from work.

    But I did not speak out because although I’m a blogger, I work from home.

    And then they came for me.

    But by that time, there was nobody left to speak for me.

    lawmakers have dirty thoughts, I always thought those were air freshners. you know what i find really offensive, mural sized car advertisments on the metro busses.

  15. adam    Wed Apr 23, 10:07 AM #  

    heh, you should check out chicago’s transit system. Even the little arms of the turnstile have ads on them.

    It’s crappy, but I guess it keeps bus fare down.

  16. Mikhail    Wed Apr 23, 10:13 AM #  

    Have you seen the newly “Wrapped” Metrorail cars? Wachovia has gone all out!

    I have to say though, I’d rather see a bus/train wrapped in Wachovia advertising then wrapped in anything done by Mr. Britto. //He said surprised that trains are not wrapped in Britto stuff, because he’s ALL OVER TOWN.

    Sorry, I’m just not a big Britto fan. Actually I can’t stand his work.

  17. doctordenim    Wed Apr 23, 05:54 PM #  

    I don’t understand why Britto calls himself Lebo these days.

    No grammar mistakes in this article.

    There is going to be a small window of opportunity where we will be able to display truck nutz dangling below out new Christian license plates that they are being replaced with.


  19. Mikhail    Thu Apr 24, 02:49 PM #  

    Well if they’re going to have these lic. plates, they should have one with the the “Stages of Human Evolution” going from ape to man with the same “I believe” tag line.

    Hey, it’s only fair! Oh yea and to counter the “Choose Life” plate, they should have a “PRO-CHOICE” tag.

    My 2 cents!
