Got brass ones? Don't display them in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- 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.

Baker acknowledged that Florida lawmakers have more pressing issues, including huge revenue shortfalls, but said the state needs to draw a line on what's obscene before more objectionable adornments appear.

State Sen. Steve Geller argued against Baker's bill.

''I find it shocking that we should be telling people that have the metallic bull testicles ... you're now going to have points on your license for this,'' said Geller.

Geller was in the minority. Baker's bill to fine drivers $60 for displaying the ornaments passed the Senate. It's now up to the House.

A similar bill in Virginia, aimed at rubber trailer hitch replicas of human genitalia, died in committee earlier this year.

I personally think that they are very stupid. But it makes for a good laugh when you see them driving down the road. My wife and I love to laugh at someone and say (in a redneck voice) "Look at the balls my truck has" What a joke to buy them, but even worse to ban them.
