    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — They’re proudly displayed by any self-respecting bull, but dangling big metal ones on the back end of a truck could be banned in Florida.
    Metal replicas of bull testicles have become trendy bumper ornaments in some parts of the Sunshine State, but state Sen. Carey Baker is campaigning to ban the orbs.

    I have never seen steel ones... all the ones I see are made of Rubber...


    And I think ANY legislator who doesn't understand what the first amendment and individual liberty means should be arrested, shipped to Gitmo and have it explained to them slowly over a bucket of water.

    Note to those outside of Florida: The Florida Legislature can be loopy at times. Don't take this piece of legislation too seriously. :smile:

    This is a non issue, like Prayer in school, that is brought up to prop up a local politico who finds himself in the dark and with slim chances of re-election.

    Pure Horse poop.

    It's reasons like this that Florida has an entire section to itself on Fark.com. Quite possibly the most bizarre state in the union.

    SteveHd: I'm taking your advice. But are you sure that Florida actually has a Legislature? From the outside looking in, it appears the State is just a bunch of expensive beach real estate surrounding water melon farmers with IQ's in the lower double digits. However, you have substantially more street cred with me regardless whether Florida does or does not actually have a Legislature. :smile:

    It surprises me that our wonderful state is facing a huge budget deficit, yet this is an issue that makes its way into the legislature! Yes, our legislature can be very loopy at times...

    Yep, just more evidence that Florida is the Red-Neck Riviera.

    I want to see a picture of those steel balls. LOL!

    I'm all for the ban on them. Imagine how embarrassing it'll be for this rube from Jacksonville, FL ?

    http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/state/article462199.ece

    For two days, Sen. Jim King, R-Jacksonville, whose Chevy Suburban sports the reproductive bull glands, has tried to stop the ban, saying it could affect a lot of drivers.

    Imagine him driving across I-10 for the legislative session. Sometimes I'm so ashamed & embarrassed for FL, it hurts.

    The Bumpernutz are much better...
    Note how one nut hangs a shade lower than the other?

    ITs this kind of verisimilitude that elevates the truck testicles to far more than just a visual gag... and into the realm of a an ACTUAL gag....


    I am waiting for the inevitable much larger size that will hang much lower and bounce along the road as you drive.

    For a moment I thought you were going to say after they only lasted a couple of weeks that you ran over something, it ripped your nutz off your bumper and then you lost your nutz ?

    Imagine someone stealing your nutz ?

    these "balls" are tacky and in bad taste they do not belong on trucks or any other vehicle.

    Anyone who would put them on his vehicle is just almost as stupid as any legislator who would vote to ban them.

    It is a bit lame, but I laughed my ass off the first time I saw a pair dangling from a Chevy in front of me.
