What a load of balls!!

Dangling some furry dice from a rear view mirror is probably more embarrasing - but in Virginia, one lawmaker has launched a crusade against decorating a truck's trailer hitch with a large pair of rubber testicles. State lawmaker Lionel Spruill introduced a bill Tuesday to ban displaying rubber replicas of male genitalia on vehicles.

He says it's a safety issue, because the giant rubber testicles could distract other drivers. Under his measure, displaying the ornamentation on a motor vehicle would be a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $250. He said the idea came from a constituent, whose young daughter spotted an example of the trailer hitch adornment, and asked her father to explain it. '"I didn't know what to tell her,'"

He said he will not hesitate to bring a set of $24.95 trailer testicles with him for a legislative show-and-tell. 'I'm going to do it,' Spruill told a handful of reporters after Tuesday's House session adjourned. 'I'm going to bring them out here and show them to you till they tell me to stop.'

CAUTION: Hanging from a rearview mirror may cause bruising to chin...SO BEWARE.
