Florida Lawmaker Taking the Ball by the Horns
Well now that any psycho can park his gun right by the factory door for those moments of homicidal rage, what is the gun-totin' community up to?
Well, pardner, Republican Cary Baker, gun shop owner, isn't resting on his laurels. He's moving to ban truck nuts. You know, those rubber bull testicles that the intellectually challenged mount on their cars and trailer hitches?
And the Florida Senate passed it on, just like it was real legislation. Canadian tax dollars at work.
Me, I think they're stupid and a bit mystifying. I mean, what's the truck owner trying to say? "I like testicles?" "My virility is intrinsically intertwined with the vehicle I drive?" "I'm stupid enough to pay $20 for a pair of rubber bull testes?"
But banning them? Because they're "offensive"?
In a state which is moving to print Christian license plates with the slogan "I believe"?
I don't object to it, in theory ... as long as they print the atheist "I don't" plate, the Muslim "Allah akbar" plate, and the Jewish "It's our damn book, and we want it back!" plate.
There certainly seems to be a lot of offensive balls going on in Florida.
And yes, I feel use of these decorations should be discouraged with extreme prejudice. But it doesn't take legislation: Whenever someone asks me "What are those?" I just tell them that it means the driver is a member of the gay community.
Once that trope works its way into society, the pickup drivers will be turning their vehicles into steers.
