OMG, yesterday I was talking to a co-worker I don't see all the time, who told me that another co-worker was thinking about creating some eighteenth-century truck nutz out of chain shot and soldering them onto a third co-worker's truck, reasoning that third co-worker will never bend over far enough to see that they're there and we can all secretly laugh about it later.
The thought of making chain shot into truck nutz is just way too tempting for me. I might ask him to make me a pair.
Seriously, I am so not down with the chesty naked woman mud flaps. I can't believe someone would get so upset over truck nutz as to try to make them illegal, and wouldn't even bat an eyelash at those damn offensive mud flaps.
*starting to think Thelma & Louise had it right. Grrrrr...*
No, I really can't. I just said that to see how it would sound.
But c_b, I'm with you on the Chesty Naked Woman Flaps. Someday, cars will actually come with their own human anatomical parts, so you can choose between a male or female vehicle. You watch. It's bound to happen--and I hope I'm too old to drive by then.
I was thinking about truck nutz on my way home from work last night, and something got me really steamed. Someone's little kid says "Daddy, what are those?" about truck nutz, he becomes embarrassed and instead of thinking of something clever like, "they're toys that some people use to decorate their trucks," he decides to try to make them illegal.
Now, suppose said child saw some mud flaps with those outlines of chesty naked women on them and said, "Daddy, what are those?" Do you think said daddy would have been embarrassed? Do you think daddy would campaign to make them illegal? And why is that? Don't two stupid things make one smart thing?
It's time for truck titz, I tell you. Bring them on and let the gender fairness fly!
Learn something every day. Thanks for all these links, Asat! Now I know what that stupid thing is hanging off that guy's truck down the street--and that there's a name for it.
I especially liked this portion of the article at your first link: "Sen. Jim King, R-Jacksonville, said ... They are no more than 'an expression of truckliness,' ... although he'd acceded to his wife's request to take them off."
