Now this is what you call a title
"State shaped like penis bans Truck Nutz".
Just what you'd expect from America's Wang.

The News Story Otherwise Known As: "How many male-genitalia puns can we fit in two paragraphs?"
I've seen the objects in question on people's trucks around here. Yes, they can be a distraction; it is very tempting to take your eyes off the road to point, laugh, and speculate on what kind of deficiency is being compensated for.
It would never occur to me to hang a pair of these on any vehicle of mine. Then again, I don't even do bumper stickers.
Obviously only geldings are welcome in Florida.
I actually saw my first pair this month, and didn't realize there was a whole industry behind it.
The good news would seem that you can still hang them from other parts of your car.
If you don't have a trailer hitch on your Pacer, I mean.
They are just the sort of vehicle enhancement I see in truck stops frequently. They come in some very unauthentic colors - at least, I wouldn't care for mine to match the variety for sale.
Just a FYI, I don't have the chrome girls on my mudflaps, either.
Never let it be said that in Florida we ignore the important things. Next in the state legislature's sites: those mudflaps with the nekkid lady silhouettes, and those car decals of a Calvin-like (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) character peeing on... something (on Fords, a Dodge logo, on Dodges, a Ford logo, etc...)
...on the Florida legislature...
Personally I find the things tacky and low class. Every time I see a pair hanging off the back of an enormous truck I think of the old saying about a guy compensating for something, and laugh.
My husband and I were once behind a truck that had not only a pair of those truck nutz, but also a jock strap hanging off them, we were quite puzzled by it.
